The Chamcha Games

They have been trained and prepared to showcase the highest standards of wheedling. They are a separate and unique class altogether – the brownnosers, who we lovingly call Chamcha! And it’s time to see who the best is! Presenting to you, the Chamcha Games! Where the low-downers stoop to the lowest and rise as warriors… only amongst themselves. This is the showdown between the finest Chamchas of this land.

Watch them play and ascend the podium of humility.

You meet them for the first time in school – the First Bencher, the Teacher’s Pet, the Topper’s Flatterer. In college, they are the ones who will stand in long lines to photocopy notes for the hot girl who’s out having coffee with someone else. And then you meet them again years later, carrying the boss’ laptop, agreeing to everything seniors say at meetings, nodding and smiling and complying. They are the ultimate wagtails, the posterior kissers – the men and women who sit at the feet of corrupt and incompetent politicians – they are the classic Chamchas!

The Great Indian Chamcha is a satire on the life and times of the quintessential boot-licking sycophant – a tribute to the ever-so entertaining class of doormats. The truly unique class amongst us, because we bring you unique stories from India.
