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.

Trivia

Sanjeev Bhaskar says he used 42 for the show's house number because he was heavily influenced by Douglas Adams's radio series "The Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy" when he was growing up. See more »

Brilliant!
6 March 2002 | by (Lincolnshire, England) – See all my reviews

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.
