Type Vir Das into Netflix’s search field and you’ll find two of his Bollywood movies, Delhi Belly (2011) and Gollu and Pappu (2014).
In America, you won’t find his 2016 big-budget sex comedy, Mastizaade. Was Netflix doing him a favor? In his newest stand-up comedy special, Vir Das: Losing It, the comedian references Mastizaade as a career mistake that newspaper critics in India called “career suicide,” and claimed his phone stopped ringing for five months after the film debuted. It wasn’t all bad, though. “I got to romance Sunny Leone on set for two months” while making the movie, Das noted.
Losing It is a bit of a sex comedy in itself.
With his first Netflix comedy special, Abroad Understanding, Das proved his comedy bona fides in America by using footage from both a New York City theater and a New Delhi arena.
And he wants us all to know how well he’s doing now, joking about putting on an American accent to “be more Indian” and taking his stand-up on tour to 33 countries (and if you subscribe to the theory that stand-up comedy provides a vehicle for men to jerk off their egos in public, then Das’s jokes about masturbation won’t dispel that at all).
Das does want to look at Indian stereotypes and religious icons a bit differently. Indian people seem smarter only in relation to the rest of the world, and yet in proportion with their own population. “Eighty percent of social media cannot spell social or media,” no matter where you go, he jokes. He believes in God, but not organized religion, which he argues is like asking someone else to take your selfie. “When you remove the bullshit from religion, what’s left is a cool story,” Das says. So he has some fun with Hindu’s epic story of Ramayana, taking care to mime his jokes so he cannot be accused of heresy. Das also tests and teases us with some other tales, asking us to decide which tales are too tall for the truth. A montage during the end credits will reward you for your patience in playing along.
