Storyline

The show revolves around the life of an upper class Gujarati family, the Sarabhais, who live in a luxury apartment building in the upmarket Cuffe Parade area of South Mumbai. The family consists of Indravadan Sarabhai (Satish Shah) and his wife Maya (Ratna Pathak), who live in an apartment with their younger son Rosesh (Rajesh Kumar). Their older son Sahil (Sumeet Raghavan) and his wife Monisha Sarabhai (Rupali Ganguly) née Manisha Singh live in the apartment across the hallway. Maya considers the name Manisha middle class and renames her Monisha before their marriage. Monisha's middle-class habits irk Maya. Monisha, on the other hand, does not appreciate Maya's snooty and snobbish behaviour. Indravadan constantly derides Roshesh for being tied to his mother's apron strings and for writing bad poetry. Maya and Roshesh consider Indravadan's attitude towards Rosesh and his gregarious nature boorish. The ensuing conflict and comedy becomes Sarabhai vs Sarabhai. Much of the humour is ...

Slick Comedy. Best Indian Sitcom!
29 October 2011 | by See all my reviews

This is unarguably one of the best sitcoms in Indian Television. We have had some nice funny TV shows but none of them are so nicely scripted.

The show had a very interesting and unusual cast. Crisp direction, Well researched scripts, and High IQ humor made it so much more interesting than other comedy shows on Indian TV channels.

Maya and Monisha's (Elite vs middle class) sequences are such a delight! And the best thing in the show was Rosesh's KILLER Poetry. So irritating yet so enjoyable:)

Too bad that we do not have another season coming! I still hope a new season starts someday.
