After a long and exhausting day, we just want to sit back and watch something that would make us laugh out loud and take away all our stress. Well, Amazon Prime Video’s upcoming show Wakaalat From Home has got you covered. The 10-episode series, shot completely during the lockdown on a zoom call, stars Sumeet Vyas, Nidhi Singh, Kubbra Sait, and Gopal Datt in prominent roles. The show takes us into the lives of a married couple, played by Sujin (Sumeet) and Radhika (Nidhi), who have filed for a divorce. All set to provide us some much-needed comic relief, here are five reasons why we can’t wait for Wakaalat From Home.
Reunion of internet’s favourite couple
Sumeet Vyas and Nidhi Singh have been one of the most favourite couples when it comes to web shows. The couple was much loved for their chemistry and adorable love story in Permanent Roommates and ever since the show ended, fans were eagerly awaiting to see them on screen again. Back to their bickering best, viewers are in for a treat as we see this perfect pair return to regale us. However, this time, fans will see a different side of the couple as the loved-up duo are fighting a divorce case.
The stellar cast – Kubbra and Gopal
Can a divorce proceeding be complete without a lawyer? Maintaining law and order amidst the chaos, Wakaalat From Home has Kubbra Sait and Gopal Datt playing lawyers to Sumeet and Nidhi, respectively. The trailer shows us that the duo is stuck between a hilarious divorce case between a fighting couple while navigating the proceedings smoothly. Known for their impeccable comic timing, this is a fantastic four who will certainly be a delight to watch.
Much-needed comic relief
Written by Anuvab Pal, the show has many hilarious punches that would make us go ROFL! The show takes us into the lives of a married couple, who are involved in their divorce court proceedings over zoom calls due to the lockdown restrictions. What follows is an absolute laugh riot that’s full of commotion and utter chaos.
Relatable WFH moments
The series is a hilarious take on how people have adapted to the new normal. From working from home to virtual meetings, the series will remind you of your lockdown days when life came to a standstill. A scene from the trailer that stands out is Gopal Datt standing up to attend the doorbell leading to everyone seeing his boxers. We’ve all been guilty of doing the same on our client calls now have we?
Computer screen production
While the world is adapting to the new normal, so are the artists. Shot completely on zoom calls and from the respective homes of the cast members, Wakaalat From Home is a one-of-a-kind sitcom. Not only did the cast members act in the show, they also became their own stylists, make-up artists, and technicians.
Get ready for some hearty laughter with Amazon Prime Video’s Wakaalat From Home. Written by Anuvab Pal and directed by Rohan Sippy, the show is set to stream from September 10th.
