Please go through them, vote for your favorite shows and add any shows that we might have missed.

Kaun Banega Crorepati

By homeis
Dashed border
A show that changed the way we watched TV. Everyone remembers the epic tune. There was a time when all of us thought we can get there and win a crore rupees. It's been almost 20 years since the show first aired on Indian TV and is still going strong. AB doesn't seem to be slowing down at all.

Long before Ekta Kappor started making the infamous "K" serials, she made this show. It is still one of the most famous shows ever created on Indian TV. We all loved Mathurji and laughed at his helplessness. Classic TV.

Millions of Indian love this show. If you don't believe me just check out the views on YouTube each episode gets. Rumour has it that Lata Mangeshkar called up Sony's CEO to complaint when the show went on a break for a while. Beat That.

CID

Ok, some might think that this show shouldn't be on this list. It is a show that has led to so many parodies. The show has given us lines that we still use, 'Daya Darwaza Tod Do'. ACP Pradyuman, Daya and Abhijeet are household names and it is one of the longest running TV shows.

Dekh Bhai Dekh

By homeis

Shekhar Suman, Faida Jalal, Navin Nischol, Amar upadhayay (Mihir Virani), Deven Bhojani. We all remember the tune of the song. The story revolves around three generations of the Diwan family, who live as an extended family in an ancestral bungalow in the suburbs of Mumbai. The serial takes the viewer through their various ups and downs. Their never-say-die attitude helps them overcome sibling rivalry, relationship troubles, business problems, irksome parents and in-laws. A distinctive feature of this show were its fast speaking characters.

Long before we came across Supernatural, there was this. Yes, it is probably cringe worthy now, but back then it was something that scared all of us.

Pitchers

This is probably the most recent show. And Yes, it was not on TV but over the years it has gathered a huge following. So much so that every video that TVF releases has a thread of users asking for its next season.
