Along with roz ka cartoon and drama, Indian TV shows had us hooked and even today here are some of those shows that I find myself going back to for re-runs !
Mom, What is the problem is the? Park mein karte hai walking is the. There’s no show that did PJs better than this one. Special mention to Chandramukhi Chautala for keeping a straight face the entire time.
A lot of people might not remember this show. It was on the life of a journalist Mahi who wrote a column on life and positivity, but lived a very contrary life. It was a show ahead of its times, and I still binge watch it when I am feeling very low on life. Siddharth Karnick and Viraf Patel are McSteamy and McDreamy, but Pushtii Shakti battles body image issues and low self esteem issues way before it was cool and a topic of discussion and way better than Amy Schumer’s I Feel Pretty.
If you haven’t known or seen it, please do. It’s just so wholesome. (Available on Netflix).
Easily one of the best shows to have come out on Indian TV. So I glad I grew up watching inn-bring-saravaling! Farida Jalal makes the best nani in the world, or you could just watch the show for Shanti Aunty and Pam!
It’s my comfort show!
Sarabhai vs Sarabhai
I’ll explain like Dushyant, when Madhusudan Phupha does ‘Hain?’ to Roshesh’s What are you saying?’ You read it like they say it na? That’s how iconic the show is. There has been no show that even comes close to Sarabhai. I’m personally disappointed when Hotstar cancelled its Take 2.
Baa, Bahoo aur Baby
Same characters, same level of crazy as the OG Khichdi but just a lot more characters and more fun, in my opinion. If Khichdi wasn’t your jam, there’s a chance you might like this show more.
We have the OG in town! watching Musadilal travel pillar to post for the most minuscule things ever. With stereotyped characters and my favourite Patel Sahab doing ‘do baatein’, the series is a fun binge-able watch.
Best of Luck, Nikki
An Indian version of the American sitcom Good Luck Charlie, the sitcom is a hilarious watch with the adorable Nikki, Dolly (Sheena Bajaj) has a tough time raising her sibling. A similar watch is Suite Life of Zack and Cody or Karan and Kabir.
Kya Mast hai Life
Thoda exaggerated college life, but real issues with real people. Special mention to fetus Shweta Tripathi and Shaheer Sheikh playing their adorable self. Written by Tanmay Bhat, and all the songs by Aasma.
Oh and did I mention,
This because… seriously? I’ll have to tell you why?
Gonna stay busy today searching for all the best of these on YouTube now !
