In these tough times, de-stress yourself with these comedies on TV

Amid the pandemic, there is a lot of anxiety, stress and depression all around. And the best way to find some relief from the current situation is to escape into comedies. Today (May 2), on World Laughter Day, we list down few feel-good shows that one can binge-watch for comic relief

Bhaag Beanie Bhaag — Netflix

Led by Swara Bhasker, this Netflix original has the actress playing the role of an aspiring stand-up comic caught between personal and professional problems. Swara nails the portrayal of a young woman who is tired of living up to everyone’s expectations and wants to break free from a dead-end job, looming domesticity, a relationship that can offer her security but not freedom. Watch this endearingly flawed heroine who wins the day every time with her honesty.

Pushpavalli — Amazon Prime Video

One of the most loved originals on Amazon Prime Video, Pushpavalli is remarkable for many reasons. With great insight, Sumukhi Suresh plays the protagonist, an obsessive young woman who will stop at nothing to win the man she believes herself to be in love with. This dark humour shows us how many boxes women have to tick before they can see themselves as worthy of love.

Sarabhai vs Sarabhai — Disney+ Hotsar

Relive the nostalgia with a series that gave a refreshing new twist to the old saas-bahu format. Sarabhai vs Sarabhai with its bunch of idiosyncratic characters can offer hours of entertainment leaving the person refreshed and energised.

Gullak — SonyLIV

Gullak by The Viral Fever brings alive the everyday issues, conflicts, joys and sorrows of a middle-class family in a small town without losing its sense of perspective and humour. Unemployment, financial tensions, strained relationships, and more are faced by the Mishras as a family. This slice of life series is bound to bring a smile on your face even on a hard day.

The Office – Disney+ Hotstar

The ‘boss’ in the series played by Mukul Chadda has mannerisms that remind viewers of many similar characters they may have encountered in their families, offices or neighbourhoods. This man is delightfully unaware of his own lack of wit and keeps trying hilariously to cheer his team of morose and uninspired employees. Watch The Office if you are looking for some soothing, rib-tickling binge
