K(r)aapi with Karan

I recently discovered that Koffee with Karan is being aired on one of the channels during weekends over here. I couldn't wait. Isn't Karan a unique character - an out-of-the-closet guy (I mean gay) from our land? I watched one episode. It was so superficial that I couldn't get enough of it. Last weekend, got to watch so many interviews thanks to youtube. The conversation is only in english. And most of the time one's body, one's sex-appeal or one's crush, love, ex-love is whats discussed. If the producers ask Karan not to use the word "sex" or "sexy", he'd probably resign. I don't think he is capable of talking in english without using those words. The star guests are very forthright or frank or open. Thats why Preity Zinta talked about "grabbing" Abhishek's butt. Even the King Khan and KJ gave subtle hints about their "relationship". And Abhishek said Mallika Sherawat represents Indian women of 2005 and that he'd like to see her run in slow motion.

Unfortunate are those who never got to watch this show. The guy who directed 3 movies (one of them was a flop) is actually a guy the stars suck upto. Everytime he has guests, those guests fight over the coffee hamper that K hands out. I am pretty sure those people might toss it the second they get out of the set. But they are magnanimous enough to provide us entertainment with such funny tiffs and competition peppered with humour that I promise I would "do anything" to watch this show.

PS - The "do anything" was pun intended. You'd undertsnad if you watch this clip.


Update - The post reflects what I feel about the show but that doesn't mean I wouldn't watch it. I love the entertainment. Go KJ! (OMG, Am I inadvertently sucking up to him now?:-))

I have seen few episodes of Season 1 on TV and the 2nd Season on Youtube...

You are absolutely right...Its all Krap :)

The celebrities who are called are his so-called best friends - SRK, Kajol, Rani, blah blah...Its so damn boring!

Check out Coffee with Anu on Youtube...Its much better than KJs show. I liked the one with Sivamani and Mandolin Srinivas.

Hey yeah..thats true…I was saying the same thing to my sister that kj’d resign if he is not allowed to use those words.

A 'moral man' is a frightened man- chicken hearted man; that is why he practices morality and sits in judgment over others.The human organism is not interested in Karan's wonderful ideas--peace, bliss, beatitude or any such thing. Its only interest is survival.

AP, this show is anything but boring frankly. I haven't watched the one with Anu. Is it on youtube?
Padmapriya, hi-5.:-)
nilu, ennamo sollara nee. But why do people hate your blog but still love reading it? There is no logic. Adhu maridhan idhu...kind of. Anyway, are you the real one or the usual imposter?
Anon2, yeah we had fun watching it. I am grateful to Karan and youtube for the weekend.
MT, thank you.:-) You are the 2nd person talking about Anu. Please send the link if you have.
oracle, idhu nalla irukkey.
Syam, you are unfortunate....seriously.

Where can I see more episodes?! Youtube's removed all claiming copyright infringements! :(

Blogger KK said...

I totally agree with you that KJ is Gay.... I have watched prolly one episode where rani and Kareena come.... Rani was more masculine than this guy while talking :)
And yeah the fight for the coffee hamper.... so artificial...
Karan would have been a better fit than Ajith for God Father dancer role... :D

Me, I wish I could watch the Simbu episode. Please write a post on that.
Harish, I read that. That was funny. A "proud to be an Indian" song wouldn't be out of place.:-)
rads, are you serious? Thank God I watched them before they were removed.
kk, rani-kareena interview was the first episode I watched too. Please watch Malaika-Amrita Aroras' piece if you can.
AP, thanks will check that out.
I, yes it is.
Ajay, thats very true. A comedy with a "class" so to say.:-)
vid, who is suchi? (Suchitra Krishnamurthy?)
Anon, thank you. I didn't know one is considered cool if one leaves a comment in that blog. I know many people who read it but dont leave a comment coz they are scared anons would get angry. I am serious.
Inder, Bingo. thats my point.

deepa, watched it for the 1st time here. its oozing with artificial stuff! and watched anu's episodes thru utube. BIG diff is the "artificiality" is thankfully missing and i thnk that's why a lot of ppl prefer anu's.
thamizh & chennai-ites (incl. m'ras chicks)vaazhga;-)!

Yes. I don't know if Mirchi Suchi's full name is 'Suchitra Krishnamurthy'. But I believe she did a few episodes with Singers Karthik and Srinivas and also Nadhia and the lot.

But after about 4 shows, she disappeared with the show and it continued to be 'Coffee with Anu' from 'Koffee with Suchi'.

Blogger Deepa said...

mlc, looks like I'll have to watch the one with Anu. Is that fully in tamizh as you say coz this one is in english.
vid, oh mirchi suchi ya? she is different. This suchitra krishnamurthy is the nescafe-fame model, singer and actress. Also Shekar kapur's wife.

1:53 PM  
Blogger MLC said...

yes! that's mostly in tamizh and that too, nice thamizh! not that "aapai" kind that some tv comperes talk!!

Like anu mentioned, the one w/ maddy was good. i like maddy & am not crazy abt him, but when he answered he preferred southie gals to northies, angey-yey na gaali;-)! and cud tell he was'nt sayng it just coz ...

Deepa,
This is my 3rd comment for your post :)
Mirchi Suchi's official name is also Suchitra Krishnamurthy(the same as Shekar Kapur's wife). I remember her doing the Coffee with Suchi and then Anu Haasan is doing it...Mirchi Suchi sings for films these days - her latest one is "Dolu Dolu dhaan" from Pokkiri...She has a Vasundara Das kinda voice...
