With Mr. Funny bone of television Kapil Sharma bidding adieu to his comedy chat show Comedy Nights With Kapil on Colors, there was a lot of curiosity raised in the media about the show taking over its place. And with Krushna Abhishek getting all the limelight over the last few days, for the launch of his show, we too geared up for the big launch!!
Yes, right at 10 o’clock, we settled down in front of the idiot box to have a glimpse of the much talked about show of the year, Comedy Nights Live (Optimystix).
In the very beginning Mika Singh made a grand entry, in his usual manner, humming the tune of his chartbuster songs. Though we did miss Navjyot Singh Sidhu’s shayari, nevertheless Mika’s presence gave us a breath of fresh air.
Post Mika’s performance came Krushna Abhishek in an all new avatar, that of Pappu Singh. No doubt this one man has impressed us many a times, however due to the lack of witty lines in the script, he unfortunately couldn’t cast a spell on us. Sudesh Lehri as Krushna’s dad didn’t have much to do, except for flirting with Pinky bua (Upasana Singh), who was charming as ever.
Coming to Bharti Singh who never fails to mesmerize us, she appeared as Bitto Sharma (Kapil Sharma) and Manju’s (Sumona Chakravarti) son. And with her character portrayal, we got the glimpse of the eternal child, Laali in her.
Aah, that part is what we loved the most.
Perhaps, the best and the most entertaining one in the lot was Siddharth Sagar, who played the character of an irritating neighbour.
Take a bow, young man!!! You never disappoint us.
Unfortunately, the script was indeed weak and all the punches were related to Kapil opting out of the show. We believe that the writers should focus more on their original script than drawing references from their predecessors.
Though the opening episode of Comedy Nights Live was a decent one, we couldn’t help but miss the superb comic sense of Bittoo, Gutthi (Sunil Grover) and Palak (Kiku Sharda). Having said this, we would add that with the terrific trio Krushna, Sudesh and Bharti being together in the series, we are sure that Comedy Nights Live will soon pick up its pace.
On the whole, the show might take some time to gain popularity amongst audience… All we can say right now is that the weekends will be fun and light-hearted with Comedy Nights Live being on air!!
Readers, do share your thoughts about the show.
