Sarabhai v/s Sarabhai is a comedy show which every person will switch on to when it comes to clean and extraordinary comedy. The first episode of the show is out and it seems that this time the show will be more successful as it is more funny this time.
The introduction scene shows the Sarabhai family in a bus hanging from the cliff. Not much has changed from the previous season as Monisha (Rupali Ganguly) and Maya (Ratna Pathak Shah) are yet again held in an argument even in the bus. This shows the differences the two still have. Monisha is just the same – speaks Hindi,calls her son ‘Guddu’, carries ‘dabbas’ with her on picnic, and gets a drink-addict driver for the trip to save money. Maya, on the other hand, keeps taunting her for behaving like a “North Indian Punjabi-shly middle class” woman. Sahil(Sumeet Raghvan), Monisha’s defending husband continues to be the peacemaker. Rosesh’s (Rajesh Kumar) silent prayer is the first poetry will definitely make you laugh like hell.
Over the years, the story has got some changes too. Now Monisha and Sahil have a son Arnab, Indravadhan and Maya are grandparents, and Rosesh is now an actor cast in a super hit TV show – ‘Bahu Machar, Beta Khachar’.
The first episode has been well written and executed, in familiarity and nostalgia. While with any sequel or season, there is bound to be pressure, but the makers manage to tide over with a strong narration and a taut script, where dialogues are not forcefully funny. They fit into the situation, seeping us into the story and the mad world of ‘Sarabhai’ family. They cause uproarious laughter.
The sets of the show are grand this time, and the penthouse is well furnished, and jaw dropping. The episode keeps you hooked with its neat editing. The cast deserves an applause for continuing their characters as if there was no break. In fact, they look better, act better and are fun to watch all over again.
