It was the first soap-opera on Indian TV (Doordarshan), and captivated everybody (even if for the simple reason there was nothing else on TV!) The plot revolves around a lower-middle-class Indian family living in Delhi (I think): the drinking, singing father; the long-suffering, hard-working mother; their three daughters (ahh, the plight of a father with many daughters in India!) and one son; the grandparents; and the foreign-settled cousins. The eldest daughter is a feminist ("Bhadki" = angered), anti-dowry; the middle wants to have fun ("majli" = middle); and the youngest ("chutki" = small one) is in school, I think. The son wants to make money, and gets involved with a rich family (marrying into money). Just showed their everyday life.
The soap also had Ashok Kumar, the veteran actor of Indian movies, summarizing each episode at the end.
Sometimes fun, sometimes painful to watch, plenty of viewers.
