Kaal Spoof

Whenever possible I catch ‘The Great Indian Comedy Show’. It’s nothing compared to its counterparts in the West but I think it’s quite a hit on the Indian Television. The ensemble of the cast is quite good. Some jokes are really silly and stupid but some are neat too.

If you appreciate PJs, you would like this show compared to those awfully boring and over-the-top saans-bahu sagas and soap operas with no logical storyline, marital affairs and multiple kids from multiple marriages! Wow what a shining example of the Indian joint family! Ok this will make for another blog so back to The Great Indian Comedy Show.

A couple of spoofs on Karan Johar’s Kaal that I caught and quite liked.

Save the Tiger: Vinay Pathak is a forest officer who accompanies a tourist in the Park. A tiger strikes the tourist and he screams for help. Vinay Pathak calls up his boss and then fires the gun. Then calls him back and reports, “Sir I shot the tourist” and to the audience he says, “When in doubt always SAVE THE TIGER”.


The Sajid Murder Incident: In the movie, the group discovers Sajid’s headless dead body. They enacted the same scene here and Manini De is a total hit with her take on Lara Dutta. She has got the accent and acting bang on target. Gaurav Kapoor playing John Abraham on seeing the body asks, “Did your friend Sajid have a head?” The actor playing Vivek Oberoi says with a serious look, “I think he did; but now he has lost it!!! Cut the crap!!:-))”

Oh! How I kept wishing the Karan Johar camp was watching this, what a tribute to their so-called “hit”!!!

Agreed for once

I actually think it’s a good suggestion by Miandad. I was thinking of writing an article on why Bangladesh needs to go back to being a non-test playing nation and start from scratch. Ever since their debut in 2000 against India at home. They have shown no sparks or talent to be up with the test-playing nations. Their record till date is dismal.

Why has the ICC been lenient towards them really puzzles me? Zimbabwe has had its own share of troubles with politics and player’s boycott. ICC put them on warning that their test-status could be taken away, and then why spare Bangladesh?

You have to earn your test-status, you have to keep it through your performances. Too many unimportant records get broken or new records are made against Bangladesh. Even the opposition knows that they are insignificant and would rather have them against the other nations to merit some attention.

Have a look at this record (more details go here) and you all will agree with Miandad too….
