Watch: New three part series proves AIB is back with a bang
AIB uploaded a 3 part series on Honest Bars and Restaurants recently, and it's as funny as their previous 'honest' counterparts.
Are you familiar with the hindi phrase "dene wala, jab bhi deta, deta chappad phad ke" (whenever they give, they give abundantly)?
In the case of comedy sensations All India Bakch*d, this phrase could not more true. Their last video was uploaded 8 months ago, with actor Irrfan Khan. Apart from their hotstar show On Air with AIB, and a couple of international live acts, AIB has been low key for a while.
Well, they're now back with a bang. And how!
AIB uploaded a 3 part series on Honest Bars and Restaurants recently, and it's as funny as their previous "honest" counterparts, such as Honest Indian weddings, honest indian flights, honest Diwali and so on.
Apart from the AIB foursome, seen in the sketches are comedians Abish Matthew and Kaneez Surka. It explores various memories we have attached to Indian restaurants, such as visiting our regular cheap bar as a college student, ordering food on the phone with multiple interruptions from people around us, and being a vegetarian among non-vegetarians, among other gags.
The total of 3 videos plays out for over half an hour, and AIB has also released a 'making of' video as well as deleted scenes. That's a lot of fodder for laughs, guys. These honest series are definitely longer, more detailed and not speedball funny like much of their shorter videos, but we're not complaining. This is the AIB that we grew to love and laugh with.
Watch the videos here, (and send links to the colleague who is wondering why you're LOL-ing so hard)
Saif Ali Khan on why 'too much religion' bothers him: They put emphasis on afterlife, not enough on life
“I find too much of religion to be an organisation, and too many problems associated with basically my god, or your god or whose god is better," says Saif Ali Khan, ahead of the release of his horror comedy Bhoot Police.
With a little more complexity in screenplay and some wit in dialogue, Vijay Sethupathi and Taapsee Pannu's horror comedy could have been an absolute feast.
Better balance between the horror and comedy, and some ingenuity in creating more convincing scares would elevate the chronicles of these ghost hunters immensely.
