Never mind that some call it trite, contrived, and even slapstick (did you just say pretentitios too?). Whither side of the divide you stand, the fact is that Comedy Nights with Kapil is one show that makes us all laugh. And Kapil has been doing it for two years now: tonight marks the second anniversary of the show.
In the last two years, we've learnt to live with Kapil 'Bittoo' Sharma and his disfunctional family, and adopted them into our lives. And we are all still laughing.
Among the many things we have to thank Bittoo for are the crazy, rib-tickling one liners we first heard in the show which are now part of our every day lingo. Here are a few.
1. Babaji Ka Thullu
Sample this: DU cut-offs are out and after a long day of running fingers up and down college lists, you find yourself scraping the bottom of the barrel for admission. You get home and your mom asks "Haan beta! Kahan mila admission? SRCC me in mila na?" and the best response would be:
*P.S. Do remember to shield your head from a flying chappal thrown at you.
2. Oooooooooo.... Hello
Sample this: After mustering all the courage you are capable of, you ask a guy out for a date. He goes "Umm, you are just too short/fat/behenji/old/skinny/not my type". Perfect response for you? This:
3. Kaun Hai Ye Aadmi??
Sample this: You friend promises to spend an entire day with you, and just when you thought things are going to take off, his original 'girlfriend' decides to make a call and he runs to her side. The once-suitable boy comes to you a few days later asking for a favour. Wwhat should be your reponse? This maybe? This definitely: 4. Ittu Sa Tha
Sample this: You can run after every kid in the society, shouting this at the top of your lungs. Embarrass them no end and rid yourself of 'Bhaiyya mujhe bhi apne saath khilalo' or 'Bhaiyya aapke phone mein games hain?'
