Sajid Khan definitely has a common and a derivative style of making comedies and he has proven his mettle thrice in past. The humor, pronounced and slapstick, is roadmap for his films to function. With Humshakls, he might have brought a winning idea of triple roles, but amidst the creation of confusion, the writers forget that audience enjoys comedy more than confusion.
There is so much noise and screaming and unrequired mimicrys that even the supposed sane characters in the film comes across as mentally challenged.Contrived and boring, Humshakals suffers from bad timing of its lead Saif (although Ritesh does a decent job) and bad timing of jokes. There are sting of PJs. PJs can bring lump in your throat if served in right essence. There is a reason why a series like “Khichdi” thrived on PJs. Because there was an innocence which lacks big time in Humshakals.
Barring few genuinely hilarious moments in first half and that deliciously picturized Piya ke Bazaar, Humshakals has almost zero plusses in its Kitty, which is disgusting thing.
