The Rising Stars of Comedy show that we saw in our previous post shows the hilarious way in which some stand up comedians share their personal experiences. On similar lines, NDTV Prime telecasts an unusually innovative comedy titled “The Bottom Line” discussing contemporary issues, shedding light on some important current happenings.
Telecasted every Thursday at 10 PM only on NDTV Prime, the Bottom Line show is a twisted take on news by men who have no authority to comment on it. Hosted by Sorabh Pant and his team the Bottom Line is a comedy news with a twist.

In the episode “News comedy you don’t want to miss”, host Sorabh Pant starts his speech telling the viewers that their show is still a must watch in spite of its less intelligent and less insightful information because “The Bottom Line” show is endowed with a unique and exceptional “loudness” factor that keeps the crowd glued to the screens. He cleverly picks up topics that swirls through social media and mocks at them.
Starting with complains on “finding cockroach in Pizza” to India sending their first man on the moon whose first words are “Yahan PE hi no parking”, there are more catchy headlines for the week. The way he took the topic of resignation of Aam Aadmi Party’s Yogendra Yadav is admirable, wherein Sorabh “loud” voice asked Yogendra Yadav to stop writing letters of displeasure for his resignation and instead tweet using the big man’s language – twitter. Adding more, Sorabh says that Yogendra Yadav displeasure of AAP’s Arvind not listening to his suggestion was because of him wearing a muffler a.k.a Bose noise cancellation headphone. ROFL! As funny as it sounds, Sorabh gave his quirky reasons making the viewers see the lighter side of issue which otherwise leads to a lousy situation.

That’s not it. Just like NTDV Prime news hosted by Ravish Kumar having debates and discussions on controversial topics, the Bottom line show too has its own discussions but in a sarcastic way. Starring stand up comedians like Kunal Rao, Sahil Shah, Sapan Verma and Azeem Banatwalla along with Sorabh Pant, the team discusses a range of issues like SSC spokesperson clarifying textbook errors on behalf of Maharastra state board of education, FIFA’s Goal Line Technology, Union Budget 2014, banning of social media in India and so on which makes you go berserk with laughter.
Needless to say, the opinions formed by watching the first few episodes of the Bottom Line by NDTV Prime are though provoking presented in an engaging and an entertaining way. Your views?
