Ahead of its time
21 September 2006 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

This Indian comedy series came on Doordarshan in the late 80s, early 90s, when high-end production sets and the juggernaut of cable networks had yet to infiltrate the Indian public. Surprisingly, the series was incredibly funny and served up satire a la Jaspal Bhatti of the then social situations. Each week was a different plot and different characters, unlike the running TV serials of today and the 'Hum Panch' variety. Bhatti's veritable genius then is incomparable even in today's light. He wrote, directed and acted on the show along with his wife and several regular cohorts. The series always dealt with current issues with a subversive edge on comedy and surprisingly, very little buffoonery. A classic episode is the one dealing with renters and landlords. Must see Hindi TV.
