Some people see things as they are and turn them happily out of shape while retaining the core. That is the essence of humour and only a few individuals are blessed with felicity to take everyday situations and give them an extra dimension. Nickunj has this talent in abundance and adds to it that equally rare capacity of her subject. Whether she is messing about experimenting in the kitchen or declaring war on the weighing machine or pulling apart siblings, her 'inside' takes on life as she sees it is replete with lashings of laughter and a refreshing warmth that comes from employing humour sans malice.
