The show is unique in the sense that it experiments with various genres--situational, physical, slapstick. And not even once does it give you time to blink. Not even a single joke falls flat, and the comic timing of all the actors is perfect, especially Krushna Abhishek's who plays Baadshah Akbar with such aplomb. He is definitely a better actor than a stand-up comedian, and should avoid doing shows like Comedy Nights Live and Comedy Nights Bachao that don't suit his personality.

As Shambhu dada, Mithun Chakraborty gives an edge to the show, although the Disco Dancer star has not more than a couple of lines to his credit. Yet, he is one of the pillars that hold the show. And though, he has a throne to himself, in no way, can he be compared to Navjot Singh Sidhu and Mika Singh from the shows The Kapil Sharma Show and Comedy Nights Bachao respectively. P.S. We liked his Bengali accent that lends credibility to his character.

If there is anyone whose performance stays with you long after the show is over, it is Sugandha Mishra. And the reason, why we can't get over her act is that we haven't seen a bald Anarkali before this. The scene had such a shock and comic value that our jaws are still hurting. And her last night's performances shows that Sugandha is one under-rated talent that has the potential to go really far.

The former Kapil Sharma Show comedian Ali Asgar as Shehzada Salim and Sanket Bhosale as the Mountain Man too were entertaining. Bahu Humari Rajni_Kant actor Riddhima Pandit deserves a special mention. She had little screen time, yet put up a splendid act.


Overall, The Drama Company has an old-world charm to it, combined with the sensibilities for the current generation. Watching The Kapil Sharma Show with the hangover of The Drama Company might make the former show seem a little drab in comparison. Even Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Tiger Shroff were all praises for the show. "The show is a level apart from other comedy shows", said Nawaz. "I have a feeling the show will rake in a lot of TRPs," Tiger quipped.
