Old Doordarshan Serials ! Your Pick ?




Hi Folks,
This is addressed to ppl who were in India during Doordarshan's glorious days (1980's)
What was your most memorable Tv serial ? Why did you like it ?
I was hooked onto Buniyaad (Masterji, Lajoji..etc.) and Yeh jo hai zindagi (that blockbuster comedy !)..and who can forget Shahrukh khan in Fauji !

My favorites were "Khaandaan" and "Karamchand". "Buniyaad" was OK initially but they stretched it unnesessary. In later years I liked "Bharat - Ek Khoj" ,"Chanakya", "Rajani". There were many more "Kachi dhoop", Few serials based on Bengali Novels, "Tamas" .... The list is endless. Now a days Ekta Kapoor has ruined the quality and taste of serials being produced in India. Specially "Kyonki Saas Bhi Bahu Thi" is crap (though I was hooked to it for quite some time)


Has anyone seen Jassi Jaise Koi Nahin ( I hv been wanting to see this..) Does anyone know if this serials comes on VHS on rent like many other.

' Jassi Jaisi Koyee Nahi' is really a superb serial which is nowadays being telecast by Sur Sagar TV.But,I don't think if the videos of the same are available for rent as it's not finished in India yet.

Some serials based on bengali serials :-
Mujrim Haazir,
Yugantar
and a serial that had Rupa Ganguly in the lead (and it came on Sunday afternoon)

I loved Khopdi !:D

How can you guys forget the mother of all DD serials "Hum Log"? I remember my family watching it religiously every week. Remember "Chanpakaiya Chanpakaiya" at the end? :D

There was one on Sunday morning that I really liked too, about high-shchool kids doing detective work, I think it was called "Ek Do Teen Chaar" (Those were the Hardy Boys / Famous Five / Nancy Drew days after all.)

The Best was Mahabhart for sure
I am not sure if u guys consider it as a TV serial :p but Mahabhart was one of the best I saw in India.. I wouldn't miss a single episode of that epic drama. Well i did enjoy Ramayan.. too. and 'Ek Kahani'... 'Katha Sagar' .. 'Vikram aur Vaital' ... 'Dada Dadi ki Kahani'.. In the night (the dinner time entertainment) my favorite was the Doordarshan News and 'Mungeri lal ke haseen Sapne'..

Malgudi Days also was good.. i think i liked serials with short stories rather than long stories of Buniyaad and Hunlog.. although Humlog became one of my favorites during its second run

HAPPY HOLI to All !!

Hey Guys,

I still remember most of these serials mentioned by you all in earlier posts. However, there were a couple more I used to watch religiously. One of them was 'Junoon' and the other was a little known 'Byomkesh Bakshi'. I liked the 'suspense and thrill' I used to get from these serials.
There was one more I liked but I left India in the middle of that serial. It was called 'Ghutan' and has Kiran Kumar in a very different role alongwith Smita Jayker and Tom Alters. I really wish some times that DD would make these serials available of DVDs and I would love to have them in my collection.

I would not be able to comment on serials made by Zee TV, Sony or the likes, as even when I was in India in mid 90's, I never subscribed to Cable there and would only watch DD-1 & DD Metro.
