Best Series Ever On Indian Television
2 May 2007 | by See all my reviews

This is not one of the best but the very best that Indian television has to offer.Whatever the crap that they show on TV these days should be thrown in the dumps when we compare it to Malgudi Days. I have seen this so many times that I have lost the count of it. I will make sure everybody in my future generation too watches it.

It is one of those great classics which I can never forget till I m in this world.Great work and great stories with great acting is all how we can sum it up

People from all around the world, if u are reading this please don't forget to watch this.

A remarkable honest classic television package

Cheers
