Before we discovered Friends, How I Met Your Mother and The Big Bang Theory we were on the mercy of our cable tv’s serials for our daily dose of laughter and comedy shows in those times were way better than today’s.
We are thankful for a lot of things when we were kids. Cartoon Network was funny, singing and dancing show judged on basis of talent instead of sad background stories of contestant and comedy shows were way funnier.
If you’re reminiscing about your childhood it is impossible to leave out these comedy shows:
1. Office Office
If you don’t remember this show toh Do baatein ho jayengi?
2. Dekh Bhai Dekh
I can just not stop singing the title track of this show. Iss Rang Badalti Duniya Main Kya Mera Hai Kya Tera hai…..
3. Shrimaan Shrimati
This show was based on the simple concept of love-thy-neighbour ’s-wife and Premaji > Babitaji.
4. Yes Boss
Nowadays this thing won’t fly thanks to #MeToo movement but back then a boss hitting on her subordinate while her husband also an employee at the office would leave you in stitches.
5. Tu Tu Main Main
All before Ekta Kapoor started the whole saas-bahu aur saazis hoopla, Reema Lagoo and Supriya Pilgaonkar gave us a hilarious take on the regular banter between a saas and her bahu.
6. Hum Paanch
From Sweety’s dancing moves to open the main door and Kajal’s bhaigiri to the talking portrait to Anand Mathur’s constant struggle to keep up with the chaos, Hum Paanch remains one of our most loved TV shows and produced by none other than Balaji Telefilms.
7. Family No. 1
Constant fights between the kids of both families and the banter between their parents were all that was needed to crack us up.
8. Filmi Chakkar
Before you saw Satish Shah and Ratna Pathak Shah pull each others leg in Sarabhai vs Sarabhai, they played the Bollywood obsessed couple in Filmi Chakkar.
9. Zabaan Sambhalke
A Hindi remake of the British sitcom Mind Your Language, Zabaan Sambhalke was based on the hilarious chaos that went on inside the Hindi classes for adults.
10. Ji Mantriji
A Hindi remake of the British satire Yes Minister, Ji Mantriji was a quirky take on Indian politics.
Please bring back these comedy shows from our childhood.
