In this week’s episode of Comedy Nights with Kapil, Kapil Sharma and guest Sonu Nigam together showcased their superb sense of humor, leave us in fits of laughter.
The episode started with the usual initial interactions with the audience. These have so far been one of the highlights of every episode; with Kapil’s instantaneous interpretations being both surprising and humorous. Sidhu, too chipped in with a few of his own little couplets, and with, of course, the voice of his laughter gracing the background throughout.
The regular little skit too was decent enough, with the characters continuing with their jokes on their apprehensions about a new house. Paresh Ganatra plays the guest role this time, playing a ‘part time plumber, scraper and agent and a full-time Income Tax officer’!
The guest for the week was superstar veteran singer Sonu Nigam. His entry, of course, was fabulous, with a melodious performance to bind the atmosphere. Sonu, it turns out, is an ardent viewer of Comedy Nights and seems to know each and every detail! He too, plays his part on the show, showing his great sense of humour, a trait he isn’t known for. In fact, Sonu Nigam makes his own little jokes on Kapil’s wife and aunt, humouring even Kapil!
After the usual, quick discussion with Sonu, it was time for the highlight of the show: interactions with the audience. As usual, the audience asked simple questions to the guest, manipulated splendidly by Kapil, making the audience and the viewers laugh their socks off. Sonu’s own jokes and responses to the audience were splendid in their own right.
It was then time for Dadi (Ali Asgar) to pitch in with superb timing and character-based humour. Audience and viewer favourites Palak (Kiku) amd Gutthi (Sunil Grover) came in with their own jokes during just the last few minutes of the show. These two characters are so very humourous in themselves that it is only when they are on stage that Kapil does not need to interfere. They are two characters whose repeated jokes everyone loves. Also, a regular song, rather a short poem sung by Gutthi too has caught the attention of the audience and has become an oft-repeated joke in itself, alongside the dance that she does.
This episode of Comedy Nights was decent enough, but it did contain some jokes which seemed downright dull. There is a need to brush up on the starting skit, for it is the very entity that pulls the show down at times.
This weekend was also very successful for the show in itself as it won two well-deserved Indian Television Academy (ITA) Awards, one for Best Show-Comedy and the other for Best Actor-Comedy, for Kapil Sharma. We do not expect the show to miss any award in the Comedy genre at least this year, for the popularity it has gained and the unprecedented humor showcased does not constitute any other show at present. We do wish it carries on as it is, if not better than now, and keeps us laughing.
