Sticking to the route of the introductory episode, viewers are introduced to the characters. The character of Vinaychand (Swapnil Joshi) manages to win hearts with his good heart while his mother reminds one of the overdramatic Bollywood film mothers.
Performances of the actors at first sight are mediocre. Vinay's heavy accent gets tiring after a few minutes. However, the show wins on the cuteness ingredient as the characters bring a smile on viewers' faces. The story line hits a good note with the close-knit residential society members with close cultural values.
Studio cinematography makes the show livelier while the rhythm of the show reminds one of theatre plays. One can easily guess that actors must be waiting for their cue to deliver dialogues.
And now let's talk about the most important thing – comedy. The biggest expectation from Papad Pol is laughs which it really does not manage to garner. Coming from the makers of Comedy Circus(Optimystix), the show disappoints majorily in the comedy department. The one-liners deserve some applause but in these spurts of true wit, the show gets boring.
Last word, one can't entirely lose hope just by the first episode. The only Pol we will reveal from Papad Pol today is that have some patience to see if the better laughs are yet to come….
