Just when you thought the debate on the limits of freedom of speech is losing steam, YouTube group The Viral Fever (TVF) has released one more spoof to keep the fire burning. This time, it's the second part of their Newshour -- Arnub Vs Free Speech: News-hour Qtiyapa 2.
And, like TVF does always, this time too they haven't spared anyone, all in the name of satire. From Charlie Hebdo to the much-in-news AIB Roast to Aamir Khan's reaction to his colleagues from Bollywood and much more, the latest TVF video has literally taken the fight to all those calling for a gag on humour.
The video's plot, as Arnub, TVF's very own newsmaster played by Biswapati Sarkar, puts in his characteristic irreverence, is to explore "the true meaning of Freedom Of Speech" and invites the creators of reality shows Bigg Boss and Roadies.
The guests on the debate are: Jitendra Kumar playing Vietnam Siddiqui (aping Imam Siddiqui, ex-Bigg Boss contestant), Anandeshwar Dwivedi as Roadiebanyam Swami (for popular leader of Roadies Swag Samiti) Sameer Saxena as Motamir Khan (TVF's version of Aamir Khan) and Miss LLaneous (Nidhi Bisht playing the 'Editor-in-Cheap of SharePoop.com').
Vietnam sets the ball rolling in his introductory monologue: "Bigg Boss ke fans unki ibadat me paanch waqt confession ada karte hain." It's a hilarious, no-holds barred exchange of words soon. In a not-so-discreet dig at Arnab, TVF's Arnub says: "Mera Hindi no more tafleek. Maine Ravish bhaiya se tuition le ke Hindi seekh liya hai...Aap please jhaadi ke ird-gird ghoom ke peeta-peeti mat kijiye." (Don't beat around the bush, of course).
Created by Arunabh Kumar, the video is directed by Deepak Kumar Mishra and Amit Golani. Watch the video here.
