Comedy, Dakhni Style is All About Hyderabad and Its Quirks

Many would know Hyderabadi biryani. Many pay to go for stand-up comedy shows in English, Telugu, and Hindi. People know about all kinds of gory incidents in distant places. But not many, even Hyderabad-born people know about the many quirks of Hyderabad and its people.


However, of late, there is a growing interest in the Dakhni style of comedy, which is very specific to Hyderabad city and the people who have been living here for generations. There are some who are working towards reviving the art form and train budding comedians for ‘Behtereen’ and authentic performances.


One such Dakhni comedian is Syed Bashaar who has 11.2k followers on Instagram. He says it’s a simple form of comedy that is about the daily travails of a typical Hyderabadi. He says the comedy itself is not new as many Dakhni poets and writers have explored it in the past. But he says of late comedy in the city is character-centric or slapstick. Bashaar says they have only recently realized there are many who love khattar Hyderabadi jokes and comedy.


Those who are into Dakhni comedy share that this style of comedy involves combining all aspects of daily life from the eyes of a typical Hyderabadi. All the situations coupled with their dialect and lilt make it relatable to the audiences and many feel that there is an inside joke between the comedian and themselves.


Another major push for these comedians is that more and more people are realizing that Dakhni comedy does not come for free on YouTube and Insta reels at all times. Bashaar along with his friends Sameer, Omar, and Fawad has formed a team that conducts competitions, workshops and gives training to budding and aspiring comics.


However, like in any profession, the Dakhni comedians too want to make money through their medium. Of course, they all have day jobs but would love to make money out of their comedy. Usually, they perform at an auditorium in Abids. They also perform at a place called The Joint in Banjara Hills and will be performing at Aaromole this Saturday, March 5, at 7 pm.
