More than wisecracks, The Kapil Sharma show has an urgent need for more life and emotions. The long absence of Sunil Grover has drained the show of all humour and life. The characters like Guthi and Nani provided an emotional anchor to the show and kept it sailing through turbulent waters of showbiz fluctuations. The Kapil-Sunil fissure has left a huge gulf that’s getting wider with each passing day. The show urgently needs a new narrative to navigate its tottering boat safely to the coast. Can Upasana Singh, who made her debut on Sunday’s show as Babli maasi, save the show? Here’s a look at five highlights from the last episode.

Upasana Singh debuts as Babli maasi

We have to say that Upasana Singh’s presence breathed a new life to the show. Her presence brought a much-needed levity. The actor used to play Kapil’s spinster bua when it was telecast on Colors and would tease his guests with marriage proposals. In her new avatar, Upasana was equally entertaining if not more. Kapil introduced her to the show with a witty remark, “She is my masi from Delhi and I have not met her before.” Upasana quipped in her quintessential style, “Kappu, your sense of humour remains intact.” Upasana also threw a punchline that brought more laughter, “Hamara waqt kharab chal hai, par tera toh waisa hi chal raha hai na (My time is bad, but you seem to be just fine).”

Comedian Paresh Ganatra debuts as Upasana Singh’s husband

Paresh Ganatra played Upasana Singh’s husband Lovely Chaddha. The actor, with an able support from Upasana, put up a decent show. Kapil made fun of actor’s height and said, “Kitna chota mausa. Mausa se bada to samosa hota hai.” The exchange of funny one-liners between Upasana and Paresh kept bringing in small doses of laughter.

Did Kapil take a dig at Sunil Grover again?

Kapil started the show with telling viewers that he is looking to rent out a room in his house. “No one is staying here anymore. So, I have given advertisement for a tenant.” Kapil then manages to cheer the audience with some fun conversation with a guest actor who played Pehelwan on the show. When Kapil quipped, “There is a woman behind every successful man,” the Pehelwan replied, “ Mardon ko aurat bana bana ke aadmi successful hota hai

Shaan and wife Radhika appear as guests

Shaan and wife Radhika came as guests on yesterday’s show. Shaan was celebrating 25 years of his career as a singer. Shaan crooned some songs and cheered the audience. Kapil and Shaan talked about love, marriage and career.

Kiku Sharda needs to up his game

Kiku Sharda also entertained the crowd. The actor is a regular at the show and manages to stay funny mostly. Kiku appeared twice as Bumper and Baccha yesterday. But Kiku’s most jokes seemed stale and over-used and failed to bring in laughter.

        Indian express stop Barking like a dog against kapil sharma. His show doing better than before. New cast proved that the change needed badly in kapil's show. This show is back in the track again. Sunil grover is now a closed chapter. He is nothing without kapil's show. Without sunil kapil's show can run well. We have seen in before and will see in future. Just stop BARKING

          Yes you are right. I think this reported don't have any sense of humor. Its needed to enjoy jokes. Kapil's show is now with full of entertainments and fun. Sunil grover is just a back stabber. Leave him alone, he will come the kapil sharma show like a dog after couple of months. Cuz sunil can't do anything without kapil's show. We have seen it before

          A wit had once remarked, "When you finish reading the last page it is best to close the book." Time for Kapil Sharma to move on. This particular show should be given a dignified burial rather than keeping it on a fitful ventilator.
