So following the same Hit pattern, Aman Sachdeva also makes his light hearted movie moving around Delhi only with mostly Punjabi & Haryanvi characters interacting with each other. Talking about two fast friends, stepping into their real life after passing the 12th exams, it showcases how one of them (Kuku) takes a wrong decision on a third person's advice and then later repents on the same, returning to his dear friend. Made on a familiar 'seen before' kind of base (with a unusual catchy title), the film does have its few moments and some good performances too coming from the fresh cast. But the problem actually lies in its too thin plot which remains unconvincing throughout as such drastic, senseless and criminal step is not insanely taken by a friend against the other for just a small revenge. Moreover a lot of time gets wasted in the beginning (almost 35-40 minutes), wherein the film has nothing to convey as per its storyline and it keeps showcasing their friendship only through various sequences. Further the criminal activities are performed with such an ease or confidence, without any moral fear or hesitation that it all seems to be too filmy to believe in.
With a mediocre soundtrack, non-contributing background music and an average cinematography, KMKJHG actually just falls short of being as realistic as any of the Delhi based films mentioned above. Selecting an unusual title inspired from the local lingo, the accent sounds to be artificial most of the times and the next to door family kind of feeling is largely missing. Also the film keeps following its inspirational sources devotedly, which is clearly visible in sequences such as the Jagaran one, straight away reminding you of FUKREY.
In the performance section, both Siddharth Gupta (Kuku) & Ashish Juneja (Rony) show their confident sparks in few good scenes and Simran Kaur Mundi is just OK with nothing much to do along. Pallavi Batra (as the actress) impresses, but also tries to be a loud clone of Parineeti Chopra. Siddharth Malhotra (Rony's elder brother),Brijendra Kala (as Baba Ji), Somesh Agarwal (Kuku's father), Anoop Puri (Rony's Grandfather) and Rajesh Sharma (Jagran Singer) add their own individual bit to this simple, social comedy. But its the enjoyable acts of Amit Sial (as Mama Ji), Alok Chaturvedi (as the Watchman), and the actress playing the watchman's villager wife, which actually make the film interesting enough despite having a quite non-existing plot line.
In short, KUKU MATHUR KI JHAND HO GAYI is a light hearted comic film trying to impress that particular section of viewers who loved watching similar, recent entertainers like FUKREY. But scoring a lot less in comparison, it also strictly remains the one which you might enjoy more watching on a TV channel without making an effort or spending a good amount of money on its costly multiplex tickets.
