Barely Speaking With Arnub is a funny offering by the house of TVF. It stars Biswapati Sarkar as “Arnub”, a parody of popular TIMES NOW’s NEWSHOUR host Arnab Goswami. The title itself indicates the basic premise the talk show is popular for, i.e. the guests are roasted in a barrage of quips about their professional and personal lives and barely get the chance to speak up or defend themselves.
Season 1 of the show was a huge hit with guests like Shahrukh Khan, Ranveer Singh and Arvind Kejriwal facing the ire of “Arnub” and the latest episode of Season 2 saw Chetan Bhagat on the receiving end. And boy is it entertaining!
Arnub starts off with targeting Bhagat for his style of writing and tears into his basic themes like poorly-written female characters, fascination with sex, and sexist dialogues. Bhagat defends himself by saying that he is trying to capture what the youth thinks or how it behaves but to no avail! Arnub rolls him like a sock and beats with a heavy ladle.
The whole mockumentary-style roast is pretty enjoyable and the humour is spot-on.
