We’ve all watched a number of sitcoms & admit it we love them. We have our favorite ones, which we keep watching time & again. Watching Sitcoms makes us relaxed cause of its humor and comedy content. Just FYI, Sitcom is a combo of two different words i.e. Situation Comedy. Also Sitcoms originated on Radio, but as of today it is more on Television than on Radio.
So, here are a few all time favorite Indian Sitcoms.
1. Dekh Bhai Dekh:
2. Tu Tu Main Main:
Another top-notch Indian Comedy is “Tu Tu Main Main”. Based on daily fights between Mother-in-law and Daughter-in-law, this sitcom made us laugh out loud with its quirky sense of humor between the leading ladies of the show. It was directed by Sachin Pilgaonkar and stared Reema Lagoo, Supriya Pilgaonkar, Kuldeep Pawar & Mahesh Thakur in lead.
3. Office Office:
Adding to the most popular Indian Sitcoms another name is “Office Office”. The story is about a common man (Mr. Mussaddilal) played by actor Pankaj Kapoor, who is been treated brutally by the corrupt public officials played by Asawari Joshi, Sanjay Mishra, Deven Bhojani, Hemant Pandey, etc in lead. The real life truth is portrayed in a comic way. The Sitcom was directed by Rajiv Mehra.
4. Sarabhai vs Sarabhai:
And here we add our favorite one to the list of popular Indian Sitcoms is “Sarabhai vs Sarabhai”. The show has classic comic characters played by Satish Shah, Ratna Pathak, Sumeet Raghavan, Rupali Ganguli & Rajesh Kumar in lead. The story is about an ultimate Upper Class gujju family from Sobo. The characters themselves create their own stories with one another, be it father-son relationship, mother-son relationship, or mother-in-law & daughter-in-law relationship, or brother-brother relationship. Its just too funny to see these relationships groom in comic way adding high level of sarcasm, where despite of their differences they bear each other & stay as a family.
5. Hum Paanch:
How can we forget “Hum Paanch”, a family sitcom of a father who is always in trouble because of his 5 daughters. Generally two daughters are more than enough to be handled by a father, just imagine handling five such daughters! Starring Ashok Saraf, Vidya Balan, Rakhee Tondon, Bhairavi Raichura & Vandana Pathak, the show became an Iconic Indian Sitcom.
