If you have seen these serials, your childhood was savage

 

Let us take you on a ride to the serials in the ’90s to 2010 when Indian television was at its best. For readers in Indian, get ready to claim your slice of nostalgia! People who were born in the ’90s, their childhood was the best, as these serials were telecasted then. Let’s go back in time and remember your childhood.

 

 

Hum Paanch

 
 
 

This show had a perfect recipe for comedy. Hum Paanch featured a nagging wife, five dysfunctional daughters with their own unique ways of seeing life, a talking portrait of the dead first wife, and amid all of them the husband finding it really hard to survive in the female-dominated house!

Shaktimaan

 

‘Sorry Shaktimaan’ – how many times have you said this line? We thank this serial for gifting us our favourite superhero. It had a huge impact on kids in the 1990s, and many of us even bought the costume to shine among our group of friends!

Tu Tu Main Main

 

As a dominant mother-in-law and, to match her, an equally boisterous daughter-in-law, Reema Lagoo and Supriya Pilgaonkar won the hearts of viewers with this comedy show. Depicting the characters’ daily life issues between with a touch of emotion and love, it was so unlike the latest saas-bahu sagas we see today.

Hip Hip Hurray

 

The show that gave us a peep into what life in the senior secondary school will be like, ‘Hip Hip Hurray’ was one show that all teenagers related to.

Office Office

 

Some TV series was so epic that the only logical way ahead was to make a movie – and that’s what the awesomeness of Pankaj Kapoor starrer ‘Office Office’ was about.

 

 

 

Indian TV Shows From The 90s That We Still Remember Fondly

 

 

 

Vikram Aur Betaal

 

Indian folklore and literature are so rich that we need not look to the West to entertain us in the 90s. For instance, this spooky but oh-so-captivating tale of King Vikram and Betaal the vampire!

 

 

 

Indian TV Shows From The 90s That We Still Remember Fondly

 

 

 

Boogie Woogie

 

With Javed Jaffrey, Ravi Behl and later Naved Jaffrey, ‘Boogie Woogie’ was the original dance reality show that kicked some serious butt.

 

 

Indian TV Shows From The 90s That We Still Remember Fondly

 

 

Dekh Bhai Dekh

 

Dekh Bhai Dekh was one of the most popular comedy shows on Indian television and was a part and parcel of our childhood. We adored every character of the Diwan family.

 

 

 

 

 

Zee Horror Show

 

TV series presented by Ramsay Brothers (who were famous in Bollywood for churning out low budget horror films). It featured short stories in the form of 4 to 5 episodes, each one based on suspense and horror and is still remembered as the best horror show on Indian television.

 

 

Astitva

 

In a typical patriarchal Indian society, Astitva came as a surprise because it showed an older female protagonist marrying a younger guy. Beautiful story-telling and amazing background score make this show a brilliant.

 

 

 

 

 

Shararat

 

A magical family where three generations of captivating women have inherited supernatural powers and practice imperfect witchcraft.
