Pinnacle of Hindi TV
9 September 2008 | by yom_culeSee all my reviews

I remember watching this series when i was hardly a 6 year old and boy it was a favorite at my home. I had a chance to watch it again a few days back and was really impressed by the the serial. Though it is a comedy I dare bet more thinking went into it then today's serious soaps. The serial took up everyday matters showing the moral degradation of the society and presented the things with simplicity without being too simplistic. This serial uses traditional humor to keep viewers interested which is quite a far cry from the coarse humor is frequently employed on TV these days. Jaspal Bhatti as an Actor and Director does more than justice to his twin roles but to me, he really stands out a director, the way the characters are developed in such short episodes deserve recognition- I cannot remember any character that I found hard to identify with in any of the episodes. The technical execution of camera, editing and sound is par-excellence (given the low budget and other constraints). Also the serial tells a lot about life in urban India some 20 years back which stands in sharp contrast to the congested roads, pollution and high rises that are so common in India cities today.

A series which everyone of the family can sit and watch. Must watch for you and your family!!
