The Drama Company premiered last night amid a lot of hype attached to it because of it being the top contender for The Kapil Sharma Show. And as it turns out, the first episode has not failed to impress audiences with its fresh start for the comedians-cum-actors, like Sugandha Mishra, Ali Asgar, Riddhima Pandit and obviously Krushna Abhishek. Also the plot has a unique setting around it which sets it apart from the regular comedy shows airing on TV. All in all, the show is worth a watch, and here are five reasons justifying our point:

1. The plot and the jokes:

Apart from the fact that the makers are trying to experiment with different genres like situational, physical and slapstick, they have fairly succeed at it. The comic timing of all the gimmicks seems perfect and the jokes actually make us laugh. The entire setting of Akbar and a bald Anarkali adds a unique touch and together, they make the show worth the time.

2. The Bald Anarkali:

There’s no doubt that Sugandha Mishra’s bold and bald avatar steals the episode and the performance stays back with the viewers after the show. The fact that she is the first bald Anarkali adds a sense of shock and comic value to the act and Sugandha sure does complete justice to her part.

3. Krushna Abhishek’s comic timing:

Krushna Abhishek’s comic timing in his role as Baadshah Akbar seems almost perfect and his acts prove his prowess as a comedian as well as an actor.

4. Sudesh Lahiri’s Birbal-Tansen act:

Sudesh Lahiri’s jokes in his double role as Birbal and Tansen has definitely added to the aplomb of the show, even though they have an old-world charm to them.

5. The huge ensemble:

From Mithun Chakraborty’s Shambhu Dada to Ali Asgar’s Shehzada Salim, the rest of the actors have also managed to give fairly decent performances. And together with the Munna Michael cast (Tiger Shroff, Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Nidhhi Agerwal) on the sets, the first episode seemed like a grand production.

    I watched the first episode and i was looking at timer and waiting when this will be over. The show couldn't make me laugh for even a single time. Maybe this is because Kapil have raised the standards of comedy so high that no one can fits in that criteria anymore. You put best effort Krishna but honestly TUM SE NAA HO PAE GA...

    Many elements were there in Drama Company but comedy was missing. Such a boring show.... Could not find any new comedy creativity in this show... Sony channel shud be very careful for selecting the shows.... Kapil bhai don't worry... Drama company can't compete you from any angle. Also we didn't understand what was the actual concept Krushna Abhishek is having in this show... nil theme. Also Mithun da shud choose carefully before signing any show to keep his long time popularity alive

    Clearly not the show that I was watching, which was utter rubbish. Or maybe the writer has no real sense oh humor?
