Recap / Simple Samosa Episode 29 "Samosa Mama"

Go To

A mysterious person sneaks around outside one night and has Garlic, Green Pepper, Mushroom jump into a bag he's carrying. Cham Cham sees the stranger and catches a picture, then he notices the stranger looks awfully familiar.

The following morning, Samosa is given a rude awakening by the police, who suddenly take him to court. Dhokla, Jalebi, and Vada notice what's happened to Samosa and go to the courthouse to help him. At the courthouse, Samosa is accused of kidnapping Garlic, Green Pepper, and Mushroom, and he and Cham Cham are asked to jump onto a set of giant weighing scales to determine who is telling the truth. Cham Cham is shown to be the heavier of the two, indicating that he's not being truthful of the evidence he found, but even then he becomes much lighter and causes Samosa to tip the scale the other way when he takes some stuff out of his pockets.


Vada, thinking he may have pinpointed the true culprit of the crime, decides to go out and find that culprit. He does indeed find the culprit, a samosa named Special Samosa who looks almost exactly like Samosa but with a mustache. This samosa explains that he didn't kidnap the three foods; rather, he had lost them some time ago and was searching for them. Right as Samosa is about to be subjected to the punishment of being served to someone to eat, Vada brings the other samosa to the courtroom to prove his innocence.

A grateful Samosa asks how Vada figured out the culprit, and Vada points out that the picture Cham Cham took showed the other samosa's mustache. The episode ends with a bunch of other samosas appearing to greet the gang, and Samosa saying that "there is nothing better than a Simple Samosa".


"Samosa Mama" contains the following tropes:

  • Big Damn Heroes: Vada comes back into the courthouse with the true perpetrator of the kidnapping right as Samosa is about to be wrongfully punished for it.
  • Clear Their Name: Dhokla, Jalebi, and Vada do everything they can to help Samosa prove he's being wrongfully blamed for the kidnapping of Garlic, Green Pepper, and Mushroom.
  • Courtroom Episode: The episode has Samosa taken to court and having to prove himself innocent.
  • Cruel and Unusual Death: Samosa is almost subjected to being served to someone to eat before Vada comes back with the true culprit.
  • Judicial Wig: When Royal Falooda holds Samosa's trial in the courthouse, he has bubbles protruding from his head that form the shape of a judicial wig.
  • Pun: Mayor Royal Falooda says "Order in the court!" Cue the bailiff appearing and saying a long list of fast food items, the joke being that he's ordering in the court.

  • Scales of Justice: Samosa and Cham Cham are asked to jump onto a giant set of weighing scales to determine who is being honest about the supposed kidnapping. Cham Cham is initially the heavier of the two, but then his pockets are emptied, causing Samosa to become the heavier of the two.
  • Shout-Out: Cham Cham asks for the courthouse's wi-fi password and is told that it is "D-I-S-N-E-Y". This is a reference to Disney Channel, which airs Simple Samosa.
  • Title Drop: Samosa drops the phrase "There is nothing better than a Simple Samosa" at the end of the episode.
  • We Need to Get Proof: An inversion of the usual setup. Instead of finding proof that the villain did something terrible, Vada finds proofs that his friend is innocent of a crime that Cham Cham is convinced he committed.


How well does it match the trope?
