Doordarshan - Bobby Talks Cinema.com

This write-up is like a nostalgic trip down the memory lane when apart from the movie world the only visual entertainment source we had was the Doordarshan. Before the Cable Revolution arrived in India around 1991, every person in a household had his own favourite serial as per their choices and they all used to sit glued to the small screen at their fixed times and week-days. But the best (or sad) part is that the most of the below mentioned serials still remain the pioneer masterpieces in their different genres and that’s why the  Home Video market is rightly bringing them all back in the form of DVDs. So let’s go back in our golden days of Television Entertainment reading all these famous serial titles.

1.      Aur Bhi Gham Hain Zamane Mein (Drama)
(Most of the friends here may not have heard of it but this is the first serial I can recall watching on Doordarshan in the late 70s or the early 80s.)

Hi All,

I hava thought of some 5-6 DD serials which I have seen during my childhhod days but still remember some bit.

Please help me recall the names and if there is any link available somewhere to watch them again.

1. This was a marathi adaptation with arun govil, archana joglekar where she comes and stays at his home. There is a beautiful song ( Tera Mera manwa kaise ek hui re ).

2. Then there was Nisha singh serial with the lead guy acting quite khadoos. Even though he liked her but never admitted, probably his name was aditya dhanrajgir.

3. This one had smita jaykar, maya alagh and tom alter. Was shot somewhere in the hills. Smita was in love with Kiran kumar but couldnt marry him and then she suddenly meets him somewhere. Also had the guy from dekh bhai dekh and gul gulshan gulpham ( Vishal Singh ).

4. This was om puri's serial, The tittle song was like " Yeh ishq nahi aasaan, itna to samajh lijiye, ek aag ka dariya hain aur doob ke jana hain ).

5. This one had girish karnad and probably his younger brother was in love with some snob rich girl but girish karnad got him married to some village girl and he doesnt accept her as his wife. Some south indian adaptation.

6. This was a telefilm ( Hindola I believe ), Smita jayakar loves and dreams about shekhar suman but she is married to Farooq sheikh. It was a sweet romcom.

7. Last one ... This is some navy serial ( not sea hawks )... This girl loves some army or navy guy but her mom ( Vineeta Malik ) doesnt let her marry him and instead asks her to tie a rakhi.

8. This was a serial on school guys shot in hostel ..probably the first one .. It had a lead guy who was quite strong.

Will think of some more and post. Need help in remembering the names and find a link to watch.

Hi Priceless,

I think the serial you are talking about is TRISHNA - The guy is Tarun Dhanrajgir.
And if i am not mistaken the Navy serial is Samundhar which had Samir Soni (Neelam's husband).

Actually now the only place you can find this is at Youtube or when DD officially makes the DVDs of all its old serials.

Hi,
In 90's I used to watch a serial and I do not remember the name, can you please help me to get it.....

The serial is about a metal ball which comes from a different place or planet and makes all nuisance and troubles the people in that area.

I could remember the scenes where it rings the bell of a person and then hides and that person keeps shouting who rang the bell.
The next scene I remember is that It goes to a supermarket and eats all the stuff in the packets and ..........others

Hi Sawan Kumar, Bobby
At this moment very few of those old serials are available online or on DVD and there are very few chances of them getting released soon in any case.
So all we can do is hope and wait that someone uploads them personally on Youtube.

Cheers!

I think you missed a very important TV Serial, which probably is the first one to be telecast on National Network.
This was a comedy series and its name is DADI MAA JAGI

Also, I am from Knapur and as a Kid I watched an unforgettable TV serial on lucknow doorsan network. Its name is BIWI NATIYON WALI.

Hopefully You will include them in your list.

Thanks,

Hello Sir,
Thank you so much for taking us on a trip down the memory lane. Really, those were the days!
I would also like to mention The Stone Boy. This was probably a short film shown as a serial in the early 90s. I used to love it.
Thanks,

Sir,
During my child hood in early 1990s i used to watch a serial;where the son of a dead postman finds some letters from his fathers which were never delivered;They included letters written many years back.And the son decides to deliver them;Each episode is divided for each letter and the confusion and drama created by the untimely delivery of the same.In the climax episode he gets a letter belonging to his own family and gets in trouble and tragedy and in the end realizing the mistake of delivery letters as much as 25 years old he burns the rest of the letters.This one is one of the most powerful and emotional serials ever aired on Doordarshan.Can anyone tell its name and other details.Please

Hi,
Gr8 to have some old memories revisited through this wonderful site. Good work Bobby! I believe the nostalgic memories which our generation has about having watched the good old DD, the new generation can never have with all the bombardment of channels and their (often low quality) software. One more remarkable thing I would like to mention.

For most of the old DD serials, we can even remember the title track which takes us back to those times, be it Chandrakanta (sung by Sonu Nigam), Mr.Yogi, Junoon (by Vinod Rathod), Swabhimaan (by Sunita Rao), Trishna (instrumental), Kiley ka Rahasya ( the 'Abhishapt Kila' song!), etc., etc. Today either the title tracks are not made or there is no time to air them, which is rather unfortunate, because the viewers actually get emotionally involved with the serial more when they identify it with a track.

Also, I would like to mention the serial 'Spiderman' (dubbed) which used to come on Sat afternoons and another serial (the name I forget) in which the main character was known as 'Chiman Rao' (even the title of that serial ran something like 'Aaye Chiman Rao'). There was also a dubbed version of the English Novel 'Jane Eyre' which used to be aired (if I remember correctly) on alternate Saturday mornings. Sat evenings were also devoted to the splendid 'Show Theme' (who can forget the ever smiling Tabassum!). On Sundays, before the evening movie, Sridevi used to come onscreen with her 'Seema' lights! I believe even 'Stone Boy' used to be aired half an hour before the Sunday movie (was the name of that 'Boy' Ashish, if i remember correctly?)
'
Fairy Tale Theatre' was another programme which we really used to enjoy as children. Then there was 'Faster Fene' (a boy detective!)

Hi Saurabh S.
Thanks for writing in and appreciating the work here and yes you are very right about the Title Songs which are not to be found anywhere too in that high quality form and melody.

However if you are interested to read more then there are more than 600 comments in the Collective Comments PDF files available for download from the link given at the bottom of the post. And there is a lot hidden in those precious comments from all like minded friends in the last few years, including many surprising links and information to share, which is not available in the net in a collective form.

Anyways, thanks once again for providing the list
