Sarabhai vs Sarabhai writer Aatish Kapadia just lately found a Pakistani rip-off of the beloved sitcom, one which made him cringe on the horrible performances. He took to Facebook to pen a prolonged be aware about the ‘daylight theft’ and although he didn’t identify the Pakistani present, he urged everybody to not give it any views, in the event that they bump into it by probability.
“Morning began with a forwarded video link. I opened it and saw a ‘word to word’ frame to frame ‘unofficial remake of our show’ Sarabhai vs Sarabhai ‘. By someone from our not so amicable neighbors, to our west. It has been shamelessly put on a free video streaming platform and the actors have performed my written word so badly, (even even added their own pedestrian bit) that I cringed !, ”he wrote.
“I mean getting inspired and having made a show on the lines of Sarabhai vs Sarabhai is understandable. Khichdi had inspired many makers to come up with a show on the lines of Khichdi. The problem of course was that they understood the logic behind creating those illogical people. Similar, inspired versions of Sarabhai have got it wrong, because they thought it was a show only about class conflict; which was just one aspect of it. Written by using inversion as a tool. But this blatant copy! ??? My god it’s appalling. My request to my friends is to NOT give that show ‘views’, by chance coming across that daylight robbery, ”he added.
Aatish slammed the makers of the Pakistani present, calling them ‘thieves’, and stated that he’s ready for poetic justice. “So much for copyright! And I believed the technical copyright. I mean the shameful lack of conscience that those thieves displayed while lifting the show, lock stock and barrel! Waiting for poetic justice, if believed any. P.s imitation is the best form of flattery. But lack of permission before illegal imitation is amorality, ”he wrote.
Sarabhai vs Sarabhai, which aired from 2004 to 2006, was about two generations of a quintessential high-society household dwelling within the posh Malabar Hill space of Mumbai. It featured an ensemble forged, together with Ratna Pathak Shah, Satish Shah, Sumeet Raghavan, Rupali Ganguly and Rajesh Kumar.
In 2017, the present returned with a second season referred to as Sarabhai vs Sarabhai: Take 2, which confirmed the lives of the Sarabhai household after seven years had handed. However, it couldn’t replicate the success of the unique.
