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.

This show is one of the finest shows on TV. It's a top class sitcom and talk show in one. If you are a fan of Goodness Gracious Me, then you should like this. The casts lines are written, as are the questions, but the guest is always genuine and spontanious.
Highlights include the dirty and rude gran and the Dads anecdotes that don't have an ending.
I was in the audience for a recording of this, and the guests really don't have any idea what's coming!
I really recommend watching this whenever it's on, you won't be disappointed.
