Japani Doll, the title has a story behind it too. The word Japani has a double meaning in Bengali. On an innocent level, it means a person hailing from Japan but the sexual innuendo refers to a penis ( one which is large). This is mainly because in Bengali channels we watch an ad about ‘Japani Tel’, an oil product which uses a snake as a reference for penis. The ‘Japani Tel’, which is an oil product is used to massage the penis to make it grow. But had I not been an avid television viewer I wouldn’t have understood the fun in the title.
The script seems to be directed by a five-year-old, who cannot distinguish between a Japanese man, a Chinese man and a man from Pakistan. The jokes are full of mistakes mainly because they make no sense. Terms like ‘surgical strike’ and speeches of Prime Minister Narendra Modi are used in a wrong manner.
I wonder if the writers of this series have studied basic geography, or even cared to read the newspaper because they seem to get it all wrong. So rather than a review, I feel like compiling a list of everything that went wrong and I hope the writers take a good look at this list because the entire series look immature.
- Japan and China are two different countries.
- It’s plain and simple racist when you can’t distinguish between Japanese and Chinese
- You cannot drag a man to court for doing business with the Japanese or Chinese companies.
- You cannot guess and issue arrest warrants (that never happens)
- It is okay if a judge is gay, there’s no need to make fun of his sexuality. (It’s 2019 for god sake)
- For god sake! Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose went to Japan for political reasons, to attain freedom for India.
- There’s a big difference between Bose’s motive to attain freedom for India, and your protagonist’s motive to import sex dolls in Kolkata. Please don’t mix the two.
- Please learn Japanese before you add their language in your script.
- Having sex with sex dolls will not decrease population. Ever heard of sperm donation?
- Arresting a man on his wedding day is not equal to Narendra Modi’s surgical strike.
- I understand that everyone in your team has a fondness for Bollywood, but till date, I haven’t heard of a single police officer who sits of a rocking horse chair while vengefully announcing news of his enemy’s arrest.
- Samba was not sitting on a rocking horse chair in Sholay. He was on a real horse.
- Policemen don’t carry wooden horse chairs when they enter to arrest someone.
- A judge may be passionate about photography but I don’t think they are allowed to get up from their designated chair in the middle of a court session to click photos.
- No, I haven’t seen a single judge who sits with a DSLR around his neck during a court session.
- The usage of the word ‘FUCK’ is not funny if you cannot use it in the right way, in the right term.
- I believe the purpose of a sex doll is just meaningless sex, so no one cares if a sex doll can sing.
- No one purchases a sex doll to hear it rap. They buy CDs, records.
India has a population of 1.37 billion. So why can’t we have one good sex comedy?
