As you’d expect, Karunesh Talwar is his usual cynical, annoyed and hilarious self in his second stand up special, Aalas Motaapa Ghabraahat. The whole show, to put it simply, is about two relationships in his life – one with his parents and the other with his girlfriend. It’s about his frustration at realising that caring deeply about anyone mostly involves being extremely irritated. In the case of his parents, he’s irritated at their conventional ways of thinking, the suspicion of rationality and the constant paranoia that being middle class parents in India brings.
In the case of his romantic life, the irritation is directed inwards. It’s himself he’s annoyed at for not knowing how to ‘boyfriend,’ essentially. Vastly inexperienced with dating, and grappling with ADHD, he talks about dating his best friend, how enormously he lucked out, and how he’s just trying to make sure she sticks around. In many ways, the underlying idea behind the show is that unfortunately, many times a lot of women are just forced to settle. It’s more obvious in our parents’ generation, where women are traditionally expected to look after the household and keep the peace (which basically means bearing the brunt of everyone’s mental health issues).
In his own relationship, he talks about how sometimes, despite his best efforts, his girlfriend is the one who is doing the heavy lifting not only emotionally but also intellectually. The show is an attempt at self-awareness. He roasts his parents for the first half of it, which sets the scene for the second half, which is him pointing fingers at himself. Almost as if to say, ‘this is what I come from, and now this is what I am.’ We’ve had parents who have, for the most part, believed that they were right about pretty much everything, and that’s given rise to a generation of confused, immature millennials, who are slowly learning that most of the things they know are either party true or completely false. The show is also about the fact that essentially, we’re all just a slightly modified version of our parents.
The flaws that frustrate him about his parents are flaws he also has some version of. The problem is, he was oblivious to them until he got into a serious relationship and they all suddenly came into focus. Written during the Coronavirus lockdown, and workshopped mostly on Zoom shows, this special is different from any hour of comedy he’s come up with before. Usually a stand up comedy show would be built through extensive touring and live performances.
