Subhash K Jha Reviews Kapil Sharma’s Show
So he is back after all. The naysayers and party-poopers are biting their nails. To his credit Kapil Sharma has adopted a completely new format for his comeback.We don’t get to see even a shred of the earlier shows except the sexist quips which are harmless fun.
So put on your television sets again because Kapil Sharma is back.
In very ‘switch’ way Family Time With Kapil which kickstarted on Sony Entertainment on Sunday evening is fun to watch…if you like game shows where people who would normally not be caught doing things like balancing playing-balls between their bums.
The tempo was preserved to the end, and Kapil’s old colleagues Kiku Sharda and Chandan Prabhakar provided able support.No one missed the spoilsports from Kapil’s earlier shows who have chosen to their separate way. And yes, Navjot Singh Sidhu was also back on the show, though I am not very sure what his function would be this time.Sidhu did get his judge’s kursi,though. Old habits die hard. And who knows this better than Kapil?
But who cares? As Kapil said at the start, “Game toh ek bahana hai har family ko saath jutana hai.”
There were digs galore about Kapil’s mishaps during thepast year, and Sidhu even slipped in a dig about Kapil’s flopped big-screen plans.
Yup, I had fun watching Kapil’s comeback timing. I can see families switching on to the show,for no better reason except to seeKapil act naughty. At one point he asked a member of the audience why he didn’t bring his wife on the show.
“Insha Allah agli baar aapke liye laaonga biwi ko,” said the over-enthusiastic guest.
“Aapki biwi aapko Mubarak ho,” deadpanned Kapil.
No offence meant. Let the fun begin. Even Ajay Devgan who came on the show seemed to enjoy himself.
