BBC’s Meet The Kumars: Part scripted comedy, part improvisation, part genuine interview, BBC AMERICA presents the all-new U.S. premiere award-winning talk show, “The Kumars at No. 42,” which begins Sundays starting August 29, 2004 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
The Kumars are a typical (albeit exaggerated) Indian family, living in
Son Sanjeev Kumar (Sanjeev Bhaskar, Goodness Gracious Me) asks the questions, while his mother Madhuri (Indira Joshi), father Ashwin (Vincent Ebrahim) and mischievous granny Sushila (Meera Syal, Bombay Dreams, Goodness Gracious Me) interrupt the interviews from a nearby sofa, with wildly inappropriate and irrelevant questions.
Winner of many awards including two International Emmys, a bronze rose of Montreux at Europe's top television awards and Best New TV Comedy at the British Comedy Awards, this truly unique show has proved a huge hit around the world with the original format now available across five continents.
Sanjeev Bhaskar, who plays son and talk-shot host Sanjeev Kumar, is also the creator of The Kumars at No. 42.
"I got the idea out of my own painful experiences from taking girlfriends home to meet my mum and dad," he explains. "Within a very short space of time my father would blurt out to the unfortunate girl in question, 'and how much does your father earn?' Whereas mom would start saying, 'Sanjeev handles rejection very badly and do you want children? I'm very keen to have grandchildren.' When I became an actor it occurred to me that if my folks behaved like that with girlfriends - what would they be like if I brought a famous person home?"
Each week celebrity guests such as Richard E. Grant, Donny Osmond, Robson Green, Michael Parkinson and Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen are welcomed in to the home of the Kumars where they meet the family for the first time - and what a family.
Sanjeev, unmarried and still living at home, is a little green about life. Madhuri is always plying guests with food and trying to get Sanjeev married off. Ashwin has a tendency to tell long, tedious stories and is obsessed with money. While granny Sushila, also affectionately called Ummi, has a youthful zest for life and good-looking men.
Once the celebrities have made it through the house to get to the studio, they then find themselves subjected to interrogation in the studio from mom, dad and granny. In all the chaos Sanjeev tries to keep order and occasionally ask the odd question himself.
The Kumars at No. 42 is produced by Sharat Sardana, Richard Pinto and Lissa Evans who also directed the show with executive producers Denise O'Donoghue and Jimmy Mulville. It is a Hat Trick production for BBC
