Mallika Dua needs no introduction. The woman has taken the internet by storm for all the right (and comic) reasons. From a regular copywriter to an internet “sensashiyun”, she rose to fame after her video ‘Shit People Say: Sarojini Nagar Edition’ went viral. Even if you don’t like her insanely hilarious videos (How can you not though?), chances are that you must have come across at least one of her videos with crazy Snapchat video filters where she enjoys playing the role of her very original characters.
And when we talk about funny videos, how can we not mention All India Bakchod (AIB)? Fortunately for Mallika’s fans, the comedian has been collaborating with the equally popular AIB for quite a few projects and the results are obviously hysterical.
Earlier this year, AIB came up with a highly imaginative video ‘If Apps Were People’, featuring stand-up comedians including Mallika Dua as ‘sleazy’ Tinder, Kaneez Surka as ‘artist’ Instagram, Sumukhi Suresh as Facebook, Tanmay Bhatt as Battery Saver and others as Whatsapp, Snapchat, Alarm Maa, Message (SMS) Bapu. The unique concept was bound to garner attention worldwide and it did just that.
The video received so much love and appreciation that they decided to come up with a second part. And trust us when we say this, it couldn’t have been better.
The storyline is a little different this time. While the first part talked about the obsession we all have with mobile apps, the latest version shows the apps struggling to keep up with Supriya’s (Sainee Raj) mother and her mobile usage habits. Or should we say every other parent’s mobile habits?
Broadcasting ‘Good Morning’ messages to everyone in the contact list along with forwarding every piece of “news” that goes viral- sounds familiar doesn’t it? This extremely common habit of parents makes Whatsapp (Kumar Varun) go crazy with overload of information. He returns as ‘SMS bapu’ in the later part of the video and without a doubt his performance is exceptional.
But on the other hand, Tinder and Instagram have had to take a back seat.
Chances are that most parents don’t even know what ‘Tinder’ is and those who do, would probably discourage its use. This leaves the very sleazy Tinder aka Mallika Dua desperate for some action. Her gaudy accent combined with the endless sexual references will make you laugh your ass off and will definitely stay with you for years to come.
If her Instagram role isn’t enough for you then here’s some good news. She plays a double role as she comes back in the video as ‘Matrimonial’ so you get to see a little more of her!
There’s also the character of ‘Amazon’ who is tired of the unhealthy habit of Supriya’s mother as she keeps adding items to her cart but never goes ahead with the purchase.
Kaneez Surka is at her best too as she retains her semi- Italian accent for her Instagram impression from the first part.
The mother played by Sheeba Chadda is the cherry on top of the cake as we see a different side to this otherwise adorable mother.
