‘Bhabi…’ tickles funny bone in Hindi belt

Virendra Singh Rawat / Lucknow


An average family in the great Hindi belt of North India spends its ‘prime time’ watching the slapstick comedy titled ‘Bhabiji Ghar Par Hain’ on the idiot box.
Launched in 2014, the laugh riot has ever since maintained its stronghold on audiences with silly one-liners. The sitcom has been mesmerising all the segments of TV aficionados, including children with its simple narrations and lovable plots.
Its main cast have become popular with the general public cutting across socioeconomic bars with their stereotypical rustic screen names and persona. The comedy has succeeded in making people identify with its characters and plots, that under the garb of comedy narrates the everyday toil and struggle in a person’s life.
The serial uses colloquial lingo to connect with its targetted audience in the great cow belt. Its other characters and sidekicks further accentuate its appeal, keeping it fresh, dishy and plump.
The sitcom’s peeping toms viz. Vibhuti Narain Mishra (Aashif Sheikh) and Manmohan Tiwari (Rohitash Gaud), living in a Kanpur locality, are perennially eyeing the affection of each other’s wives. Their flirtations and interactions, interspersed with arguments form the gist of this comdy. The antics of the two ‘bhabis’ (Saumya Tandon and Shubhangi Atre) has also endeared them to scores of women and of course men folks.
The comical cop in Happu Singh, a bribe taking yet harmless and potbellied man, who is seen chewing pan and mouthing hilarious punches keeps the audience in splits. The local lads of Tika and Malkhan along with near lunatic Saxena ji, femme fatale Gulfam Jaan, lecherous Prem et al complete its colourful canvass, leaving the viewers asking for more.
