Evergreen Indian Comedy shows –
The Indian television has been best known to portray the stereotypical family drama featuring joint families, a perfect daughter-in law , a vamp and of course lots of tears . But every once in a while we get to see a new kind of a television show that breaks the regular drama and entertains us beyond measures. These shows go down as classics and have been adored and loved by the whole country . Here is a compilation of the top 5 amongst all.
1. Hum Panch
A benchmark set by the Balaji Telefilms for all Indian comedy shows. Story of a frustrated father trying to manage the antics of his 5 uniquely different daughters. And not to forget the talking portrait of the mother in the hallway. Also it was the first show where we got to see Vidya Balan’s talent as an actress. It taught all the women an important lesson that is sisters before misters.
2. Tu Tu-Mein Mein
On the lines of typical saas-bahu drama this show showcased the comic side of all the small fights in an Indian household. It was in a way parody to all the other shows. With the perfect comic timing of Reema Lagoo and Supriya Pilgaonkar. This show was unbelievably delightful a complete family watch.
Laughter never really stopped since the moment Musadi Lal our beloved common man walked into a government office. Battling from bribe taking officers to lazy officials Musadi went through it all. The show was a social satire on the Indian Government offices and the way the truth was depicted in the show it got us all rolling on the floor with laughter. The show was so popular that a movie was released by this franchise.
4. Sarabhai v/s Sarabhai
The show so popular and amazing that it can be binge watched anytime. With Maya’s Sophistication and Monisha’s Middle Class war this show went on to be one of the greatest hits ever. Not to forget the other interesting characters mischievous Indravadhan, caught in crossfire Sahil, Poetic Roshesh, Gizmo Freak Dushyant and the hard of hearing Madhusudan Fufa. Second season desperately needed!
This show was about a joint family with drama. Lots of drama. The kind of drama that had our whole family in splits. A family where the only intelligent people were the kids of the house. A house where everybody went into trouble together and never really got out of it. Bade Log, Bade log!!
