Number 1 in India Netflix Kapil Titled I’m Not Done Yet Kapil’s special opens on a flashy stage in a fancy theatre. The scale and lavishness of it all seem to scream that, just like him, this night is a big deal. What struck me first was the seating. Instead of the theatre-style seating considered essential and conducive to the communal stand-up comedy experience, Kapil’s audience sits around circular tables, the kind you’d see at a wedding reception or corporate event. That, together with the energy of the audience filled with his friends and family, makes you feel like they’re all here to celebrate Kapil’s big night rather than watch him perform. A kind of lifetime-achievement-award-style tribute to him – which is essentially what I’m Not Done Yet is. (The entire special features more clapping and hooting than it does laughing, which says it all).

The act that goes on for around 50 minutes, shows us a side of Kapil that’s yet to get over his father’s loss and his own lost 20s. The narration is a concoction of bittersweet memories. The loss of his supportive father to cancer also ended Kapil’s chance at being a carefree youngster. Like most middle class families, his 20s was riddled with meeting financial responsibilities. You wonder if the comedian allows himself to let loose in his late 30s. It is perhaps an attempt to rewind the clock a bit and live it up a little now that money isn’t the issue. His father didn’t have much but never failed to stand by his son and his thoughts on his father leave you teary-eyed
Kapil is Not Done Yet for sure because he can do better than this.
