“Ek bauhat pareshaan dost hai mera, jinse humne poocha –
“Maa kaisi hai?” = “Beemaar hai!”
“Baap?” = “Paagal ho gaya hai”
“Bhai = “Jail mein hai” “Naukri?” = “Chhooot gayi”
“Bachche?” = “Hue nahin?”
“Wife?” = “Chali gayi”
“Naam kyaa hai? = “Lucky!”
Few lines from recital by Ved Praksh –
“Meri patni ne mujhse kaha … Main aaj raat tumhare sapno mein aaongi…
Main Hanumaan Chaalisa padhke so gaya!”
Comments the producer Asit Kumarr Modi on the concept of the show, “Today there is no platform to promote lyricists and poets. Writing and poetry are not given their due importance. Through this show we are trying to revive the interest in poetry & lyrics both.” Their other serial `Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah’ has completed more than 1000 episodes.
Anchored by Shailesh Lodha & Neha K. Mehta, ‘Waah Waah Kyaa Baat Hai’ is a humorous hourly weekend show. The concept of the show is loosely based on the old tradition of `Haasya Kavi Sammelan’. Produced under the banner of `Neela Telefilms’ by Asit Kumarr Modi, the show is telecast every Saturday & Sunday at 10 Pm on SAB TV.
The program showcases many established poets tickling the funny bone of the viewers. Every week there is a theme such as Women, Children, Imagination, relationship, marriage to which participating poets base their creations. Another interesting segment is ‘Chhupa Rustom’ where unknown poets get to showcase their talents. But, the highlight of the show is the section that provides a platform for emerging poets called ‘Aam aadmi ki kavitayein’.
