A sketch comedy show that gives a satirical twist to a streak of issues and challenges faced by the common people, on an everyday basis. The show consists of 6 episodes, where each episode showcases different pillars of modern India such as sports, hospitals, media, education, Bollywood, environment, and marriage among others.
Comedy, you could argue, has comes leaps and bounds in India. What was previously considered a possession of the poet or the artist is now a full-time profession many youngsters in the country are turning to. The pandemic, its implications for gig culture, may have temporarily blocked the way but in the long run, comedians seem destined to rival Bollywood celebrities for popularity. To a younger section of the audience, they may already be the bigger brands. The only problem to that prospective destination where Indian comedy is headed is the fact that the same old faces continue to reappear on our screens. Created by well-known comedians Gursimran Khamba and Amit Tandon, SonyLIV’s Chalo Koi Baat Nahi is a sketch comedy show that desperately aims to replicate the novelty value of Saturday Night Live but may have been better off recreating the spontaneity of Whose Line is it Anyway.
Chalo Koi Baat Nahi, is a sketch comedy show, hosted for some reason by the actors Ranvir Shorey and Vinay Pathak. It kind of puts paint to the bland outline of the point that even for richer and more experimental world of Indian comedy, all roads eventually lead to Bollywood. Pathak and Shorey aren’t exactly stars but are trusted and loved actors who have done comedic roles in the past.
