Bottom line is precisely accurate blend of humour, wit and sarcasm circling around the current state of political and non-political affairs of India. Be it the newly serving Mumbai metro or the ministers’ diplomatic takes on the crime against women, Bottom line serves the audience, a comedy feast that shall make you convulse with mirth and hungry for more. Although you might get reminded of Cyrus Brocha’s “The Week That Wasn’t”, Bottom Line covers varied topics and involves two other awesome talents of comedy besides the anchor, making an effortless attempt at tickling your funny bone.
The show is hosted by Sorabh Pant who, in beginning shows the audience snippets of the ‘news’ which is hilariously ‘not in the news this week’ seems immensely enthusiastic which delivering his news/dialogues. The voice modulation is appropriate. However, at times he puts way too much energy in expressing himself which makes the deliverance seem exaggerated but is quick to shift between topics. Having said that his ability to laugh at himself only elevates the comic relief.
Kunal Rao plays the international correspondent talks about Modi and how the world is jealous of him, and not to forget, English is his fourth language ! Well, according to him Modi is a player and it is all political psychology! Kunal is impressively expressive and doesn’t fail to captivate the audience with his performance.
The political apps by Sahil is a very catchy concept. Play ‘Flappy Rahul’ if you are a congress fan or the hilarious ‘AAP Yours’ if you support AAP.
The heated debate about ‘IPL and FIFA’ between the two experts Sapan Verma and Azeem Banatwalla will make your ribs hurt with laughter. Banatwalla’s twisted logic about how match fixing in IPL saves people’s lives is indeed wittingly commendable.
Last but not the least on this platter of comedy, is an amusing song by the entire team on the perks of the newly launched Mumbai Metro. I totally loved the uniqueness of the show and the way it forces us to see serious issues of the country from an entirely new and a light angle.
