Storyline

The show revolves around the life of an upper class Gujarati family, the Sarabhais, who live in a luxury apartment building in the upmarket Cuffe Parade area of South Mumbai. The family consists of Indravadan Sarabhai (Satish Shah) and his wife Maya (Ratna Pathak), who live in an apartment with their younger son Rosesh (Rajesh Kumar). Their older son Sahil (Sumeet Raghavan) and his wife Monisha Sarabhai (Rupali Ganguly) née Manisha Singh live in the apartment across the hallway. Maya considers the name Manisha middle class and renames her Monisha before their marriage. Monisha's middle-class habits irk Maya. Monisha, on the other hand, does not appreciate Maya's snooty and snobbish behaviour. Indravadan constantly derides Roshesh for being tied to his mother's apron strings and for writing bad poetry. Maya and Roshesh consider Indravadan's attitude towards Rosesh and his gregarious nature boorish. The ensuing conflict and comedy becomes Sarabhai vs Sarabhai. Much of the humour is ...

Best Indian series ever made
24 October 2015 | by Abhishek_goyalSee all my reviews

It is undoubtedly the best Hindi TV Series.

It is famous amongst youngsters because they prefer witty, sarcastic punches which Satish Shah (Indravadan Sarabhai) delivers with such an ease. Intelligent jokes, which Sumeet Raghavan (Sahil Sarabhai) never fails to deliver. The silly comedy as depicted by Rupali Ganguly (Monisha Sarabhai) and Rajesh Kumar (Rosesh Sarabhai). And of course, the brilliant acting by Ratna Pathak Shah (Maya Sarabhai).

The thing that stands out for me, is, that apart from the main cast, the supporting cast is equally funny and brilliant.

Right from Madhusudhan Fufa's "hain, hain?", to Dushyant Sarabhai explaining each and every thing. Every character in this show has it's unique charm and is equally important.

The script of each and every episode is really good. I never felt that any joke is being repeated, or is being over-used, even though I have watched each episode at least 5 time (NO! I am not exaggerating)

It's one amongst those Hindi TV serials which can be said to match the level of shows like friends,two and a half men,big bang theory and how I met your mother in terms of sarcastic dialogs...Acting and intelligent humour.... I really hope they come up with it's second season already. It is time Indian television has had some intelligent comedy.
