People Just Do Nothing: Big In Japan Review
The show ran for three seasons before the West London estate-based comedy show People Do Nothing came off the air. The daily mishaps of Kurupt FM crew began life as a sloppy web series however, through word-of-mouth, they became an alternative to national treasures thanks to their sloppy style of comedy as well as delightful, absurd friendships.
The film reunites the cast several years after their beloved pirate radio station was forced shut down. The frontrunners include MC Grindah (Allan Mustafa) and his right-hand man DJ Beats (Hugo Chegwin) and "you cannot make a hustler" Manager Chabuddy A (Asim Chaudhry) and mates Steves (Steve Stamp) and Decoy (Daniel Sylvester Woolford) always nearby and, even though they're not always around, are always there. After Chabuddy and his wearing loud shirts and with the suggestion for a ponytail receives a phone telephone call from Japan to tell them that the group has gained an enormous local fan base They giddily fly across hoping to finally making a record-breaking deal.
The low stakes mockumentary style is discarded and replaced by a an unpredictably fable about fame.
Screenwriters Mustafa and Stamp draw on the strengths of the show to propel the movie. The gormless humor, reminiscent of David Brent is a hit in the unfamiliar environment, and the childhood bond with Beats and Grindah isn't fading away. In a bid to transform the boy's tale into a feature film the low-stakes mockumentary model is abandoned and replaced with an uninspired fable of fame.
Since Spinal Tap cranked it up to 11, the movie groups have had to choose between friendship and fortune as well as Kurupt FM find themselves stuck with the same formula, but wearing neon-colored lycra onesie, not an actual Stonehenge. One of the benefits of having long-standing collaborators working again is their skillfully crafted capability to enhance any situation by delivering a powerful emotional punch which can lead to playground tantrums tears, and the wonderful usage of The Streets"'Dry Your Eyes Mate'.
With the show's journey from YouTube in the beginning to BAFTA-winning fame It's not surprising that the creators of the show want to give back something to the people who watch it. Because they cater to those who watch the show, the opportunity to present People to Do nothing to new audiences isn't being taken by the show's creators. The group's quirky and fun-loving style of performance is never dull or outdated even though it's located in a musical scene that's more than 10 years older.
