Storyline

Sanjeev Kumar is an aspiring chat-show host. He has celebrity guests round to his house (no. 42) to talk to them, but it all falls apart when his family cut in on the action. The celebrity guests spend far more time speaking to Sanjeev's 'mother', 'father' and 'grandmother' (played by Sanjeev Bhaskar's 'Goodness Gracious Me' colleague, Meera Syal), and usually insulting Sanjeev in punjabi.

I feel it is pretty good
18 January 2004 | by (Noida,India) – See all my reviews

sure it is not the greatest show ever but quite funny and surely is a comic relief from wannabe comedy sitcomes, such as Everybody Loves Raymond or That 70's show or whatever that comes on Star world (TV CHANNEL) except Friends and Seinfield
