Show Summary

This is a sitcom/talk show. The Kumars are an asian family who have their own talk show! Sanjeev Kumar, the host, talks to the guests while his family asks questions!

Sanjeev who is a very big attention-seeker and keeps thinking he's such a handsome professional talk show host is a loser, really. His father, Ashwin, is the show's producer and is always interested in business and money. In interviews, he would say these pointless stories to the celebrities with no punchline. Sanjeev's mother, Madhuri, loves having guests around and always offers food. She usually asks questions about the guest's family or love life. But the real star of the show is Sushila, Sanjeev's gran who likes to ask cheeky questions and flirts with the handsome male guests.

The Kumars had a No 1 single! With Gareth Gates that is. It was a cover of "Spirit in the sky". It was for Comic relief and was at number 1 for 3 weeks. Gareth did the singing while the Kumars commentate over it.moreless

  • Not good. Not Funny

    This simply is a mediocre show. It trys way too hard at trying to be funny but fails, miserably. i would rather lock my self in a steel cage with a starved lion then watch this show ( okay maybe a slight exaggeration)

    This show is highly overrated, and is absolutely yawningly boring. this show maybe original but the comedy is too forced and the acting would probably give an academy award panel a heart attack.

    I had to endure an episode of this rubbish with my cousin who has ver, very bad taste in television programmes. This only deserves to be taken off air completely and blu-tacked onto the wall of shamemoreless
