Kuch Kuch Locha Hai: Indeed, there is a problem!

Sunny Leone in a poster of the film.  

We deserve a film on the middle class men’s fascination for Sunny Leone. Without their support she could not have two releases in a matter of few weeks. But Devang Dholakia’s film is not that vehicle.

It is a classic case of neither here nor there. Poorly written, it is about an overweight, 45 year-old Patel guy (Ram Kapoor) who wants to spice up his life with a film star Shanaya (Sunny Leone). So he sends his wife out and convinces his son that she is just a friend. The westernised Shanaya sees it as an opportunity to understand Gujarati culture for a film role. Both have their agendas and both are suitably dumb so as to not understand each other’s game.



Kuch Kuch Locha Hai

Genre:Sex comedy
Director:Devang Dholakia
Cast:Sunny Leone, Ram Kapoor, Evelyn Sharma, Navdeep Chhabra
Bottomline:Neither adult nor comic, it is a puerile take on a common man’s fantasy to have a film star in his life.


Dholakia fails to take us on a ride because the jokes are as lame as Patel’s love life. On paper it is an interesting plot where the director puts Ram in the shoes of a common audience, who doesn’t have the figure or the looks but still lust for Sunny. But Dholakia doesn’t have the tools to milk this fascination for the adult film star. This time she is cast as a film actor but in a classic case of hypocrisy Bollywood continues to treat Sunny as an adult film star in clothes. And Sunny doesn’t seem to mind it. She continues to play the dumb doll who doesn’t want to drop her clothes at the slightest ‘demand of the scene’.

Anyway, the scenes don’t hold here and a poor copy of Dimple Kapadia’s “Jaane Bhi Do Na” fails to heat up the atmosphere.

Ram hams up big time and the support cast demands to be shut reducing it to a Sunny show. Time for her to add some acting muscle to her body of work.
