Parambrata and Ankush in the new comedy show on Hoichoi titled as “Case Jaundice”
We all know from last two months, because of COVID-19 pandemic all kind of shooting activities have been stopped. But people from the entertainment industry from several parts of India are continuously trying to bring new way of entertainment following the rules of self distancing and lockdown. It begin with short films and music videos shot inside the house and now some production houses are coming with mini series for OTT platforms. Bengali film industry is also not lagging behind. The most popular OTT platform for Bengali contents Hoichoi has released their first mini series post lockdown which has been entirely shot staying at home. It is a comedy show titled as Case Jaundice which is a sarcastic take on the current issues related with the pandemic.
The show has been created by Subhankar Chattopadhyay who has already directed many popular reality shows for television. It features Parambrata Chattopadhayay and Ankush as the two lawyers Mr. Sen and Mr. Das respectively who are fighting the legal battles opposite each other. Actor Anirban Chakrabarti is playing the Judge. Both Parambrata and Anirban Chakrabarti has worked on OTT platforms earlier but Ankush is making his debut on OTT with this show.
First five episodes of the series has been released on Hoichoi from May 15 the following episodes will come next week. Each episode has a duration of around 10 minutes and it is an engaging watch throughout. The best thing about the show is its smart writing. The dialogues are funny yet sensitive and easily relatable with the current situation. All the three actors have done full justice with the writing. Both Ankush and Parambrata have different approach towards comedy and it has worked very well to bring diversity in their characters. Anirban Chakrabarti has some of the best lines and he has totally utilised it. Even when he has no dialogues he is too good with his funny expressions. The way the series has been edited is highly commendable. It never looks like all the three actors have done their parts separately at different locations, all the shots have been smoothly merged with each other. The only weak point of the show is its background score which is monotonous and too suggestive. The dialogues and the actors are capable enough to bring the humor so such typical use of background score could have been avoided. But that is one small problem which can be overlooked. On a whole it is an entertaining show and it definitely deserves our time. We are already tired of watching debates on news channels on the current issues so it is better to opt for a rather funny take on the same issues with Case Jaundice.
