New Delhi. After getting extremely bored by the seventh round of the Indian Premier League, a clutch of cricket loving lawyers got together to file a PIL to stop the broadcast of the IPL and bring back Set Max’s legacy broadcast movie – ‘Sooryavansham’.

“IPL 7 is so boring that I have been missing what Set Max used to show all the time, all day long, on infinite loop,” Tadapit Kumar, a concerned cricket lover said.

“To be fair, I miss the movie because it was bad on so many levels. The thirty year old’s role played by Amitabh Bachhan in the movie, actually much looks older than the father’s role Bachhan played!”

“The teams have changed so much that Delhiites like Sehwag, Nehra and Gambhir are actually playing for non Delhi teams,” Tadapit added. “While watching the matches, it is extremely unclear who is actually playing for whom. Case in point, Yuvraj Singh was Kings XI Punjab for so many years but he is with RCB now.”

“So a few of us have gotten together and decided to file this PIL now,” he said. “If not Sooryavansham, maybe Set Max can show us Rahul Gandhi’s speeches. Now that is wholesome entertainment!”
