Importance of Being Comical

Stand up comedians are granted a social license to say what we think but dare not say out loud. We love comedy because it recreates our experience of life and leaves us with the gift of laughter. Comedy holds up a mirror to the conversations that dominate our society and allows them to be.

Comedy allows us to poke fun at ourselves and to laugh at the intricate web of social norms that otherwise would remain unchallenged. We feel connected as our human foibles are exaggerated and parodied for us to see in their naked form.   We revel in the stories of human dysfunction in full flight. Maybe it is because it makes us feel better about the unworkability of our own lives? Maybe we just want to be taken to the absurd so we can forget.

There seems to be an even more socially important function for comedy. I recently watched Jon Stewart discuss how the gun lobby’s fear of a possible dystopian future allowed us to ignore America’s dystopian present in reality. After lunging for the dictionary, I was reminded that comedy is best when it is not only funny but also true.   It is no surprise that over the last few decades, news delivered with a comedic twist has become increasingly popular. Think late shows and late, late shows. News satire has become increasingly popular since its renaissance in the UK with shows like That Was the Week that Was in the 1960’s and the now popular Saturday Night Live style that became popular from the US in the 1980’s and still enjoys large audiences today.Now with David Letterman, John Stewart, Conan O’Brien and Jimmy Fallon, there seems to be no end to the demand for the style.

But where did it all begin? Though stand up comedy could arguably be traced back to the time of the ancients. The Vaudeville style, where a comedian talks to the audience as himself, was made more widely popular during the Second World War. Comedians like Bob Hope, Jack Benny and George Burns entertained troops. Post war British favorites like Peter Sellers, Eric Sykes and Tommy Cooper all began this way.   After the war, the proliferation of radio and television expanded the audience even further. Many stand up comic celebrities find their way into situation comedy (sitcom) where comedic premises from their routines form the basis for the whole show. Robin Williams, Jackie Gleeson, Bob Newhart and Bill Cosby are just a few stand up comics to transition into the television sitcom world.

Now comedians typically start their journey in the open mic clubs that pop up in every populated center in pubs, clubs, coffee houses and bars. Comedians are usually given 5 minutes to work their material and impress the crowd. From here they may participate in contests or grow their skills to the point where they are offered paid gigs or MC spots. This is the brutal trial-by-fire apprenticeship that would-be comics accept as their road to success.   Whether comedy is just a means of entertainment or an insight into the cultural zeitgeist, it seems like it will never lose its place in society. What we deal with as a society and individuals is reflected in our comedy.   Pop into your local open-mic club soon and you may see the stars of the future honing their craft. Maybe you will even be inspired to get up yourself? Either way, you are guaranteed to be entertained.

Best top Bollywood and Hollywood Movies

BARFI! cannot be slotted in any particular genre.The beauty of the film lies in the fact that it instantly absorbs you into Barfi’s world. I wish to specify that one should not correlate BARFI! with disability. It’s more about characters who face the challenges that life has to offer, yet live a more gratifying life than anyone else. It’s about living each day of your life to the fullest, giving happiness, feeling love. It’s a unique love story between three exceptional characters, something we haven’t witnessed on the Hindi screen earlier. On the whole, BARFI! is unusual for Bollywood. You don’t formulate movies like BARFI! targeting its box-office potential or its commercial prospects. You create such films for the passion of cinema. BARFI! is akin to a whiff of fresh air. Its foremost triumph is that it leaves you with a powerful emotion: Happiness! I sincerely believe, no Hindi movie buff should deprive himself/herself of watching this brilliant motion picture. Also, the viewer needs to savor Ranbir, Priyanka and Ileana’s paramount performances, one of the strengths of this movie.

Ek Tha Tiger

To be fair, Ek Tha Tiger is a very different beast from recent Salman Khan starrers, particularly his last two releases, Ready and Bodyguard. The romantic portions in Ek Tha Tiger are warm and fuzzy, the humor thankfully clean and light-hearted, but as a thriller set in the world of espionage, it’s ironic that the people least intelligent here are the intelligence officers themselves. Ek Tha Tiger is far from unwatchable. It’s a welcome change from the harebrained films we’ve seen Salman Khan in lately, and for what it’s worth he’s playing a character and not himself for a change. The question you have to ask is – Is that enough?I’m going with two-and-a-half out of five for director Kabir Khan’s Ek Tha Tiger. At best, it’s a satisfying watch. Just don’t go in with high expectations.
The Dirty Picture’: Her sensuous look shocked, her itsy-bitsy clothes astonished and her double meaning dialogues left audiences gasping for breath, but all this nothwithstanding, Vidya Balan swept both the classes and the masses off their feet with her bold avatar in Ekta Kapoor`s ‘The Dirty Picture’.

An unofficial biopic of southern sex symbol Silk Smitha, the film broke the myth that only movies with ‘Khans’ work at the Box Office.

‘Bodyguard’: Salman Khan and Kareena Kapoor`s ‘Bodyguard’ broke the opening day records by earning Rs.22 crore on the first day. Although the story of the film, directed by Atul Agnihotri, didn`t have much to say, the music as well as the action sequences worked in its favour.

Salman`s signature dialogue – ‘Mujh par ek ehsaan karna ki mujh par koi ehsaan na karna’ – once again struck a chord with fans.
Dabangg 2

DABANGG 2 is a typical Bollywood film. It’s the kind of cinema we relished in the 1980s and enjoy to this date, but narrated in today’s lingo and format. It may/may not make sense to you, but Arbaaz and team ensure that you are entertained. Thoroughly entertained, actually. It’s riotous, outrageous, wacky, ambitious, absolutely madcap, transports you to an altogether different world. For those who adore masala movies, celebrate mainstream cinema, relish the cinema of yore and of course, hero-worship Salman Khan, DABANGG 2 is your ticket this festive season. On the whole, DABANGG 2 has Salman Khan, Salman Khan and Salman Khan + Entertainment, Entertainment and Entertainment in large doses. The film has the masala to work big time with the masses.
