All Time Top Indian TV Shows

Long before Netflix and Chill was a thing, there were TV shows that we loved and grew up with. "9 bajj gaye kya" still reminds us of KBC. These are shows that have shaped our personality, made us all into detectives, general knowledge experts and even singers. Here's a list of all the shows that we feel are great. Please go through them, vote for your favorite shows and add any shows that we might have missed.

What is? “Hansa” Hansa Ke Lotpot Kar Diya!
The family chemistry! From Maya, Monisha to Madhusudan bhai and Roshesh to the techy son-in-law like me with “let me explain” phrase😂. Not to forget Roshesh’s Gujarati girlfriend who wants an orgasmic farm!
Memories of watching it with the whole family (including my late mother) and the goosebumps we use to get listening to Harish Bhimani’s opening “Main Samay Hoon” and B. R. Chopra’s favourite Mahendra Kapoor’s “yada yada...”. The one character that got etched forever in my heart and soul was the character played by Nitesh Bhardwaj “Sri Krishna”

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.
I wish, author would have published more books. But, amazing show!! Watched it 3 times on YouTube already.

If I tell you why this show is So good, "Toh 2 baatein hogi". You get the drift right? The show highlighted the plight of a common man in all Government offices in India.
Content was undoubtedly awesome but the effects were really cheesy!
So many scary nights have been associated with show.... Its theme music can still make people wet their pants 💦💦💦👖👖
This and karamchand, bomb detective shows.

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.

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.

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.

The nostalgic show for me! This is where the director, Pankaj Parashar introduced an Indian version of Columbo, Pankaj Kapur (Shahid Kapoor’s father) to us in the 80s. I use to really enjoy this one growing up in Bombay! “Shut-up Kitty”

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.
