A part of the Golden Era of Indian Television
11 August 2012 | by parthjaiprakashSee all my reviews

'Nukkad' is one of the best shows that were ever aired on the Indian Television. The show has everything that a good TV show must be made of - comedy, drama, emotions - and in perfect balance. A thing that could not be said about the crap that is shoved down our throats under the tag of TV shows these days.

The actors have done a great job in bringing the characters to life. The show basically aims to present the problems that the people of a poor Mumbai neighborhood face in their everyday lives. It also tries to bring forward some of the social problems prevalent in the Indian society and how they affect a common man's life.

Though this show aired on Doordarshan when I had not even been born, I was lucky enough to catch it on of its re-runs on the Metro channel of Doordarshan and now am lucky to have it on DVD.

If you truly want to experience some good TV entertainment devoid of any vulgarity or hopeless drama (that are characteristic of the shows airing on various channels these days), then I highly recommend that you watch 'Nukkad'. Do not miss it, because if you do it will definitely be your loss.
