I’m Not Done Yet is the new show by the noted showman and host Kapil Sharma which is streaming on the streaming giant Netflix. This 50-minute standup special show leaves you wondering with some sparks flying over the head that eventually demonstrate Kapil’s nonchalant comic sense.
A routine of comedy that tries to achieve to blur the lines between informal broadsides and personal confesses. Kapil Sharma I’m Still Never Done, is a generally tense, hit-and miss act which would have cost zero had the beloved television actor not revealed his past experiences with alcoholism and depression, and Troll army (not in the order of the severity).
The Netflix Stand-up Special written by the actor himself along with Anukalp Goswami is Sharma’s first web debut after more than 15 unbroken years of making waves on television as an entertainer who has his own show of comedy and a fans. His casual style of speaking and warm personality are the perfect match to the small size of a show that runs for about 50 minutes, long enough to not let you go off to wonder what the show is about. Sharma is able to bring all of his warm and friendly country-loving vibes on the stage and creates the song I’m Still Not Done But an easy listen. It’s very disappointing to see that the routine with the exception of a few snarky remarks which he takes at the wealthy and powerful, is one which lacks bite. While it’s not overly lighthearted, it’s not the kind of sharp-edged burning stand-up that smolders and crackles, leaving behind an arc of bruises.
Although he does occasionally lash into the powerful and powerful stars of cricket, politicians powerful industrialists, powerful movie celebrities are all good game Sharma isn’t one to adopt an approach that takes no prisoners. Sharma is cautious when it comes to hot topics and favors the use of a mix of sloppy movements of sparring over stun gun shots.
The show certainly isn’t without its flaws, however it’s certainly not thrilling or powerful in the sense of impact, even when Sharma is candid about his career-threatening misdeeds. The character behind the hilarious man emerges from the fog at times and offers the audience something to think about.
Sure, Kapil Sharma fans will have a lot amount to learn from this performance that is awe-inspiring. Sharma addresses numerous personal issues with a refreshing candour, such as how he feels about his father, a policeman who died of cancer at the age of Sharma had just entered his early 20s , uncertain of the future would hold for the actor.
He mocks Doordarshan’s Krishi Darshan, his older brother’s paunch the typical Punjabi’s obsession with liquor, Amritsar’s obsession with Kulcha and Mumbai’s mid-day and night poha obsession. It’s not that they’re all unique – in fact they’re clichés that have been tossed around for years of popular culture. The show becomes more entertaining when he details the way in which Mumbai initially changed his life to the good in many aspects as he forged an opportunity to gain traction in the entertainment industry , and the struggles he faced to deal with the consequences of stardom and success forcing him to the edge.
In the many stories Sharma tells, one focuses on a first awkward, but ultimately uplifting interaction in a bar with Shah Rukh Khan. Another one is a reference to the IPL team Mumbai Indians, its owner Nita Ambani, and team player Harbhajan Singh. That they all concluded in a good way indicates the fact that Kapil Sharma was always, regardless of the lows and highs the man has experienced the most loved child of Fortune.
Do you think that’s the reason he appears not to be very compassionate towards people who don’t have the same opportunities as him? While it’s evident that he learned his lesson in a difficult way, He frequently cites his humble background including his stint as a backup singer and actor, as well as his first trip that was a waste of time to Mumbai in which all he did was learn about the effects of toddy, he takes an incredibly dismissive view of those who are less successful than he is. The routine is brimming with insulting remarks about cooks, drivers beach masseurs, hawkers and cooks. It’s not amusing!
