When it comes to mass popularity of any Indian comic, hands down Kapil Sharma is ruling the Indian hearts since the 2000s.
As a part of his new venture, Sharma made his debut on the OTT platform with a ‘Netflix special I’m not done yet.’ However, this special belongs to an altogether different genre, away from his usual stand-up style, it’s more introspective and personal.
Coming from a humble middle-class background, the comic has made a cut above the rest, in the city of dreams, Mumbai, and this Netflix special is all about his very own journey from rags to riches.
Therefore, if the viewers expect it to be another ‘Comedy Nights with Kapil,’ then they are in for a surprise.
Viewers who enjoy his craft, style of comedy and are aware of the ups and downs in his rather public-private life, will definitely enjoy this special.
Kapil opens-up about all things controversial, from his drunk tweets to the PM, his affair with stardom, his small-town boy anecdotes and a lot more.
The highlight of the special is his knack for making comedy out of tragedies, challenges & losses he had to face on the road to eminence & stardom, including his battle with depression and the loss of his father.
While the jury is still out over his comic timing and his love for hysterics around women and cross-dressers, his candour and openness about love, addiction and depression in front of a live audience is noteworthy.
All in all, the special has enough meat to sustain the duration of the act and is quite enjoyable. The set and ambience are pleasing to the eye and Kapil comes across as a humble, honest and ready to laugh at his own expense kind of a guy. The comedy is mature yet entertaining and leaves us with a lingering feel-good emotion.
Its a good, easy watch over the weekend with family and friends.
