Boring Nights With Kapil


It is no more funny. Annoying nature, repetitive and lack of creativity are killing the charm of ‘Comedy Nights With Kapil’. The TV show is executing a suicidal plan. After few days, it is obvious, people will change the channel if comedy night is telecasting on Colors!

Why? Because of three simple reason.

1. Lack of Creativity: Same dialogues, same people participating, same studio and same jokes. Everybody knows, Kapil do not have milk in his house, Kapil’s wife has a wide lips, Dadi is alcoholic and Bua-Pinky unmarried. I feel sick sometimes watching same conversation on these topics. Palak’s weight and ‘Talk to my hand’ was famous topic. Issues are same. Like, business, doctors, woman, politics etc etc. Nothing new.The country has changed in last few month, except comedy nights.

2. Same character: The initial problem was, Kapil wanted to create a standard mindset about the characters. This strategy can be useful to be remembered by the audience but when you are pretty successful you need to create new characters to deliver some new point of views the show looks irrelevant. Like, apart from marriage, the Bua character actually has nothing to discuss.

3: Guest Participation: Sunny Gavaskar was the last guest, in more than one month, I found funny on the show. Vinod Khanna, Sushmita Sen, daily shop characters are just irrelevant entries. They only can smile.


If we look at few successful Indian TV shows like, Satyameva Jayate, BigBoss, KBC, Just Dance etc we can feel three common characteristics among all of them.

1. Periodic: Always have a life cycle for every series, generally in measured in weeks.

2. Storytelling: All new stories everyday. New people or new topics.

3: Focused on USP: Just Dance was just for excellent dancers, KBC questions are always some learning scopes, Bigboss never let the contestants stop the drama.

Kapil, look back. you can learn from these success stories.
