Hasmukh is co – created and co – written by Vir Das who is a stand-up comedian doing international english based shows.

The series explores an aspiring stand up comedian who is fed up of his life being a servant of a big comedian. One day , he kills his mentor and finds that he gets his feel aka feel ( a force which inspires or motivates an artist ) .

He starts killing bad people just before his acts and climbs up the ladder of success to reach the title of the King of Comedy ( Comedy Badshaho ) but he must face his circumstances that he is drowning into.

Hasmukh’s best approach is towards it’s concept and scripting. Both are very strong. The show’s acting performances are also great specially Virdas who has proven himself to be capable of transforming himself into any role. His acting really touches as well as Ranvir Shorey who has always been in the list of the most underrated talented actors of Bollywood.
