‘Comic Timings of Life’ from Knockout Productions is a light take on the struggles of migrants in Australia
Australian based Production House Knockout Productions is all set to showcase their first ever web-series ‘Comic Timings of Life’, a light take on the day to day struggles of migrants in Australia. Season 1 is all set to release in November.
The web series is about 6 individuals who will be showcasing the different trajectories and mindsets of people who have migrated to Sydney. It’ll speak of their constant dilemmas between their professional passion versus their mundane hustle to just do everything for financial security. Most of them feel like they have fulfilled their dream by coming abroad but the web series illustrates the different paths of their lives, relatable to many Indian migrants around the world.
“When I moved to Australia, I came here with mixed feelings. I had left a promotion in a PR firm in Mumbai where I worked as a publicist and I spent years here trying to feel less and less of an appendix. Being a social butterfly all my life I managed to make some friends from India, only to realise they’re in the same boat as I am,” says Mansi Mehta, founder of Knockout Productions and Director of ‘Comic Timings of Life’. “The migration story is different for everyone, but it is this understanding that also binds us together which makes the journey worth it.”
The title denotes how their idea of living abroad shatters into sombre realities instead of living the Australian dream. The genre is rom-com-drama and there are 5 episodes in each season.
The series is bilingual, supported with subtitles, and narrates the real incidents of people. The USP of this web series is that it serves a classic platter with a new taste that relates to the audience worldwide.
Kabir Singh, Srishti Aggarwal—Miss India Australia and Karishma Sujan—Mrs India Australia, Abhishek Mehrotra, Natasha Matai and Juzer Holawala feature as the main leads of the show.
