SAB’s latest offering “Lapataganj” is inspired from the writings of Shri Sharad Joshi- who was an eminent Hindi satirist and produced by Ashwini Dheer fame ‘Office Office’.
Lapataganj is a small village in some part of India which has been long forgotten by the system. The protagonist Mukundi Lal Gupta (Rohitash Gour) stays in Lapataganj with his wife Indumati (Sucheta Khanna) and son Chukandi. Forever smiling seems to have become a habit for him. Mishri Bua (Shubhangi Gokhle)- the agony aunt of Lapataganj lives with her daughter Surili, who is dumb.
Another Character is of Biji pandey (Abbas)whose real name is Pappu Pandey But since he is very busy, he has renamed as Biji Pandey by the villagers. Last but not the least is Kachua Chacha (Vinith Kumar) who is affected by nothing, and commits to nothing either.
The show takes potshots at the various deficiencies in our system with Sharad Joshi’s typical amusing yet endearing manner. The show while making us laugh; also makes us empathize with the situations we face in our daily lives. the serial captures the spirit of a common man.
So get ready to be lost into Lapataganj from 26 October Monday-Thursday at 10 pm.
