2012 seems to be the year of remakes and sequels. The sequel to the slapstick comedy, “Kya Kool Hai Hum” starring Tusshar Kapur and Ritesh Deshmukh this movie is another addition to the previous version with more punches and better attempts at comedy. Although the male lead of the movie remains same as the previous version, the female star cast has been replaced by Neha Sharma and Srah Jane Dias. Audiences will keep an eye for this one to see if the comedy can be recreated or the magic has fizzed away.
