Total Siyapaa (English translation: Total Chaos) is a 2014 Indian romantic comedy film directed by E. Nivas and written by Neeraj Pandey. The screenplay is based on the Spanish-Argentine movie Only Human (Spanish title: Seres queridos), written and directed by Dominic Harari and Teresa Pelegri. The main characters in the original movie were Israeli and Palestinian while in Total Siyapa a they are Indian and Pakistani.
It was distributed by Reliance Big Entertainment across 850 theatres in India with two other films: Gulaab Gang and Queen. The film opened on a similar note with Queen in multiplexes offering stiff competition to each other owing to a similar release count.
The film stars Ali Zafar and Yami Gautam in lead roles with Anupam Kher and Kiron Kher in supporting roles—who appeared for the first time as an on-screen couple. The first look of the film along with that of Holiday: A Soldier Is Never Off Duty was launched on the Zee Cine Awards.
Gada-owned Pen India acquired the film rights from Reliance Entertainment while & Pictures acquired 50 per cent equity of the satellite rights. Reliance and Zee Network own the film's overseas and promotional rights respectively. Consequently, Reliance and Gada decided to postpone the release date to 7 March 2014 from 30 January 2014 to promote it. Upon release, Total Siyapaa received generally negative reviews from critics but became a box office hit.
The album is sung and composed by Ali Zafar: the main lead of the movie. Music was released on 14 February 2014 and was well received by Critics. Karthik writes "The title song Total Siyaapa along with the quirky lyrics, dialogues and sounds, is good fun. Ali Zafar fares really well in Palat Meri jaan, singing, writing and composing the lovely ballad. Palat Meri Jaan is a Chart buster. Nahi maloom has a captivating Middle-Eastern + Latino blend sound and is sung particularly well by Ali and Fariha Parvaiz. The composer-singer uses a reggae template in Asha and delivers a nice, winsome song. Chal buleya is sufi song with a message. Barring that minor misstep, charming soundtrack overall, with Ali offering a good demonstration of his multi-facetedness." All music composed by Ali Zafar.
