Product Overview

Part scripted comedy, part improvisation, part genuine interview, The Kumars at No. 42 is like nothing you've ever seen. The Kumars - a "typical" Indian family living in the north of London - have hit upon a unique method of "Keeping Up with the Joneses"; they have bulldozed their backyard and erected a state-of-the-art TV studio, where they host their very own talk show. The son, Sanjeev, pops the questions while his mother (Madhuri), father (Ashwin) and mischievous granny (Sushila) interrupt from a nearby sofa with wildly inappropriate and irrelevant questions.

Editors Note
Note Anyone who enjoyed the SEINFELD episode where Kramer set up a talk show set from the MERV GRIFFIN SHOW in his apartment, and invited various "guests" to come on the "show" should find something to enjoy in BBC comedy THE KUMARS AT NUMBER 42. The Kumars are an Indian family who live together in North London, and have hit on an ingenious idea to make their lives more interesting. Clearing out their back garden, they have built an impressive TV studio, in which they host their own talk show. Sanjeev (Sanjeev Bhaskar) is the son of the family, and the host of the show. But he has to contend with the constant interruptions from mom, Madhuri (Indira Joshi); dad, Ashwin (Vincent Ebrahim); and grandmother, Sushil (Meera Syal), who all reside on a couch in the studio. Comedic mayhem ensues as Sanjeev's flow is constantly halted by his cantankerous relatives in the six episodes included here.
