The era of 80s and 90s were a golden one- I say this because I was part of the era and I am sure most people who have lived through it would agree with me. I don’t know if most of you still remember of how you spent your childhood days during the 80s and 90s, the games you played and especially the TV shows you watched. Talking about TV shows, do you remember how we would eagerly we would wait for Sundays to arrive so that we could get glued to our TV sets with our siblings, friends and family and watch those shows that still give us goosebumps?
Here are 5 serials/TV shows that will define your childhood memories and take you back to those days:
If you remember, “Ahaat” a horror that was being telecasted on Sony at 11pm
How about this one- a mythological adventurous serial “Alif Laila” which used to be telecasted on Doordarshan
‘Shaktimaan’, the superhero hero of every kid during those days. Who would probably go out on Sundays 12:00 noon and play when Shaktimaan is on air right!
After watching this serial, I was so much into fairy that I asked my mom to get me one, yes “Son Pari” a fantasy adventure which used to get aired on Star-Plus.
“Just Mohabbat” serial was also one of the television series which added drama in our lives as rightly said “Life mein kuch drama”. This serial was telecasted on Sony TV.
And did we forget Ramanand Sagar’s Shri Krishna? The ‘Maakhan Chor’ and all his mischief, the character that we fell in love with despite our religious affiliations?
And did we forget Chandrakanta , a mega-budget Indian fantasy television series and was one of the biggest-ever blockbusters in the history of Indian television. It was originally telecast on Doordarshan’s DD National between 1994 and 1996. And do you remember the monstrous ‘Kuroor Singh’?
And do you remember this? Vikram Aur Betaal was a television programme that aired on DD National. Oh the life lessons we learnt!
And the epic history of Mahabharata! Even if you hated history, lets thank this show for taking us closer to our historical treasure
And the epitome of ‘tall, dark and handsome’ Captain Vyom. How can we miss this?
