Mirage said...

Wow! You sure have a great memory! I must b like 6 or 7 when they aired these...hardly remember any!
And you're right...Ekta Kapoor SUCKS!!

Pallavi said...

Loved Neenv !! Kathasagar... I also liked this serial called Rishtey wich was telecasted by Zee.. yeah life was pretty simple then,... hahah

Pallavi said...

Oh yes there was Potli baba... which was pretty cute on Sundays !! :)

Pallavi said...

and also that Discover India series which had Ompuri naratting about Indian history,... Surabhi was very educative too...SIGH

Nupur said...

What abt JungleBook? *chaddi pehen ke phool khila hai - phool khila hai!!* :D

Debalina said...

Can't agree more on Ekta Kapur invasion. Different Channels, different serial names and same story, same cast and same viewers !

runa said...

phew...that was awesome....i was hoping u might have missed one or two of the ones that i still remembered...but then u had covered most of them. tho i think i used to liked the "satyajit ray presents" series as well. neways...nice list.

Anonymous said...

i can only recollect very few of those serials and i remember u saying also about this to me,i remember the old days

Handa said...

wow.. thats a huge list... i m not familiar with a few of those names like chunauti, dadi maa jaagi,etc.. btw.. how much time did it take to compile this list?

Stone said...

@mirage :: thank u for the compliment, my friends say I've memory of an elephant. but its limited only to remembering all faltu ki baatein :-)

@Pallavi:: Me too loved KathaSagar; Rishtey was nice so is Star best seller , but here I tried to list out serils of good old days of DD. :-)

@Pallavi:: Yes, Potli baba ki, now I've added that.

@Pallavi:: Discovery of India is there in the list with name "Bhart ek khoj", I loved the naration of 'Roshan Seth'. and Surbahi is now added to list. :-)

@Nupur:: Added that to list, u know wat, i was made to sing (with actions) on this song during college raggin :-(

@Debalina::"Different Channels, different serial names and same story, same cast and same viewers !"
STORY?? woh kya hota hai???

@Runa:: Ya I remember that Satyajit Ray presents series. Let me know if I missed any one u remember.

@Anon:: Is that you Amit? :-)

@Handa:: Well, this was not compiled at one go, I added to it as and when I recalled one.

Sonik said...

Cool one...I really appreciate your Memory..>And Ekta Kapoor is a big shit lady. Her Serials are more of a horror show rather than entertainment. If the Serial doesnot works, then she don't mind changing the actors just for the sake of TRP ratings...But this thing is reaching its heights now and these sorts of serials are getting too Boring...What about the bull shit program "JASSI JAISI KOI NAHIN"....O god....this is the most horrible television serial of the decade.

BoyJoy said...

Man!!! Kudos for remembering so many and esp Yeh jo hai zindagi - remember - it used to be aired on Fridays and it was the reason i loved fridays...

Also - sonik's comment is so sonik-like :P

sai thilak said...

i wonder how could you collect the names of those serials ! ;-)

Smiling Agony said...

You always make me so nostalgic - first it was comics then this post - whew!! - Some memory !!

I remember some - Potli mein hari hari pariyon ke par - great song ! - Jungle book - jungle jungle pata chala hai chaddhi pehen ke phool khila hai !! - Nukkad, Circus, Fauji, Ulta Pulta (wasnt it Jaspal bhatti?) and Flowshow - Dekh bhai dekh -

Used to love Bomkesh Bokshi - Some of them used to air when I was a kid - 2 or 3 years !!

Truly nostalgic to talk of the good old days not the shit that we have today ! Ekta Kapoor Sucks !!

Sangeeta said...

Wow! u took me back to the yesteryears..i so misss those serials:(( yes......ekta kapoor knows nothing abtmaking tv serials:((

manuscrypts said...

woweee, had planned to do this.. but glad u did, i wdnt have reached even close to this.. great post man!! :)

Praveen Bhat said...

wow!!! great blog, man!!!

hey, more vague recalls, if I may:

--memoirs of invisible man, was it?
--something on Sherlock Holmes?
--Uttar Ramayan :)
--PC 1008?
--Chitrahaar? (since phool khile... is in ;)
--Darpan? (I think the first one to start short stories; one per episode kinds)
--Ghar Jamai?

smile said...

You missed "Sigma" and "Sparsh"

runa said...

star trek and UFO on sunday mornings and superhit hungama on DDMetro

Deez said...

... and what a lovely list.:)

Arunima said...

I read and re-read to see if you missed anything.

Was a bit upset. your post cheered me up.

Stone said...

@Sonik:: hahaha.. typical Sonik comment, seems that u r forced to watch 'jassi" daily ;-)

@BoyJoy:: Yeh joh hai zindagi was my favorite too, genuine clean comedy.

@sai thilak:: just like that dear friend..just like that :-)

@Smiling Agony:: hmm..u remember title songs also..., food for another post ;-)

@Sangeeta:: me too badly miss those days and serials, and true she doesn't know anything abt making TV serials but she surely knows how to make money.

@manuscypts:: Ur words mean a lot man!!! Thanks a lot.

@Praveen Bhat:: Thanks for visiting mate, hmm will update this list with names u mentioned.

@smile:: Sigma is there, and Sparsh it was on sony right?? some Ravi Rai serial.

@runa:: yeah star-trek and Superhit Muqabla (not hungama) should b there, thanks.

@Deez / Vanilla:: I'm glad u liked it, thanks for passing by.

@Arunima:: Ya, Maila Anchal, I remember but only the name :-)
Don't be upset mate, cheeeeer up. esmileeeeeeee puhleezzzz.!!!

Really nice post...and makes me so nostalgic.
It's an amazing coincidence but I was discussing something similar with my friends this weekend and we managed to come up with a lot of names we thought we'd relegated to the attics of memory - serials like Humrahi (which made a star out of Himani Shivpuri in the role of Devki Bhojaai, and which I believe is not here in the list) and Pachpan Khambe Lal Deewarein (this one's here...Aman Verma's debut).
Aah...those were the worries about career and competitve exams, or looking for a story in a serial when it's not there

Stone said...

@anon/V :: dus saal,agar serial ke break mein channel change kar do to yaad nahi rehta ke hum initially dekh kya rahe they.

@Arnav:: Yes..Humrahi, will add it to this list!!
hmm waqt-waqt ki baat hai mere bhai ..hmmm !!!

You have covered almost all that I remember. You may want to add 'Mr. and Mrs' which introduced Jayant Kriplani to the television audiences. I think Archana Puran singh was the female lead in that one, though I am not 100% sure.

And then there was the talk show by 'Some' Handa on sunday mornings.

Anonymous said...

One more I recalled:
'Kahaan gaye woh log'

Anonymous said...

I remember Kile kaa rahasya and fauji.Kile kaa rahsya was so scary that i used to cover myself by a bed-sheet and then watch the TV through a peep Hole Great Days!!!!!!!

poemsnpuja said...

accha lagta ahi ki aur bhi log hai jinhehin yaad hai wo din jab tv dekhna ek experience hua karta tha. saara ghar baith ke dekhta hta aur ham intezaar karte the poore hafte ek episode ka. jab light chali jaane pe dukh hota tha ki serial nahin dekh paayenge...
though i dont remember all the serails as i was very young at their time hte ones fir wahi talash and neem ka ped still evoke nostalgia.

Lalit Singh said...

It was based on india-pakistan cross border terrorism.. the villain, a baldhead(i remember his face, but not his name[:(]) used to sing "bol mitthi dinya, banwya hoye, ye tenu ishk ni maar.." every now and then when he plan any of his terrorist activities.
