Prepare yourselves - what you are about to
see will change your lives. If you've never heard of Chacha
Chaudhary, then it gives me great pleasure to welcome you to
the world of shitty comics. And by "shitty", I don't
mean a comic that is mildly substandard or intentionally stupid.
We're talking about comics that have actually existed in India
since the 1960s. We're talking about comics that have no logical
stories and the crappiest drawings ever. We're talking about
comics that are seriously read as humour by some people... but
for the rest of us are so shitty that they actually go full
circle and become funny by virtue of their mindblowing shittiness.
My friends, we're talking about Chacha Chaudhary.
At this point I could try and explain Chacha
Chaudhary to you. But I would be unable to. There is Chacha
Chaudhary the character, who has several traits which are supposed
to make him heroic and admirable. But when you read a Chacha
Chaudhary adventure and see the shittiness of the story, you
end up laughing at it rather than with it. This is a good thing
because it is much funnier that way.
Right. On to the first Chacha Chaudhary review
on this site... Chacha Chaudhary and
Our main characters haven't arrived on the
scene yet, but one of the first things you'll notice is that
no one talks like normal people in Chacha Chaudhary's world.
You could chalk it up to bad translation, but just look at the
conversation in the first frame...
"Patku! How come at
this age you ventured to play football?"
"This football is not for playing but to derive fun."
Anyway, Patku's friend kicks the football,
only to find - HO! HO! - the football is made of solid rock.
Whatever will they think of next?
