Hotstar has started streaming the Indian remake of cult TV series The Office. Created by Rohan Sippy, Debbie Rao and Vivek Bhushan, which is inspired by the long-running US remake, turns out has not won the Indian audience over. The verdict is out on Twitter, and fans are don't seem to be happy.

Taking to Twitter, users have slammed the show for its over-the-top humour and 'Punjabi dad jokes'.

One user wrote, "What the hell forced you guys to make #TheOfficeIndia ? Aur atleast copy to ache se karo yr. P.S. Pam ka pammi bnaa dia," while another posted, "Watched the first three episodes of #TheOfficeIndia. I've mixed feelings. They have replaced Michael's jokes with punjabi dad jokes. Rest of the dialogues are just directly translated into Hindi. I am sure they have used the same subtitle file as the @theofficenbc."

A third user, even went on to write, "The Hotstar version of The Office is unwatchable. Don't know who the target audience is but can't imagine anyone liking it. Punjabi Michael Scott is the worst and Punjabi Jim and Pam have the chemistry of a glass of water at room temperature."

Here’s what others wrote:

However, there were a few who felt it was not that bad:

Notably, the new adaptation of The Office stars Mukul Chadda, Gopal Dutt, Sayandeep Sengupta, Samrishi Dewan, Gauhar Khan and Gavin Methalaka in pivotal roles.
