Providing you an opportunity to laugh out loud amid the tension of the pandemic, Assamese stand-up comedy series ‘Haahit Petor Bikh’ is streaming on dedicated Assamese OTT platform Reeldrama.
Directed by Kenny Basumatary, the show has comic pieces by veterans like Rajib Kro and Dr Anjan Jyoti Choudhury, as well as young funnymen like Saju Ahmed and Tamak Ranjan Dutta.
‘Haahit Petor Bikh’ is a one-of-its-kind Assamese stand-up comedy show available to watch on OTT platform Reeldrama. The Assamese stand-up comedy idea was contemplated and introduced by Reeldrama. The creative team at Reeldrama, along with the director and executive producer of the comedy show, took part in several brainstorming sessions discussing its feasibility and success probability, while coming up with the funny entertaining series.
Sharing his experience in creating the show, director Kenny Basumatary said: “We asked some of our friends to come over as audience…and we were all laughing throughout the shoot. Just like in the title, our stomachs were literally aching from laughing by the end of the day.”
Executive producer of the show, Anupam Baishya added that an Assamese stand-up comedy show like this is very new to audiences. “We have seen skits, mimicry shows etc in Assamese but solo comedy performances on screen are very rare. We really had a tough time to find and get artists on board. But once they were in, we successfully got 32 fantastic episodes of laughter riot. We asked all the artists to transform their life experiences into scripts and thus created this unique show in terms of content. All the positive feedback is boosting us to go for further seasons of ‘Haahit Petor Bikh’,” he said.
Reeldrama is a OTT (Over-The-Top) platform with loads of Assamese content. The platform hosts movies from different genres, web series, shows from the field of music, comedy, poetry, cookery and devotion.
