Even as fans, old or new, rejoiced the fact, according to reports on February 22, not just ‘Circus’ but 5 more old TV shows are set to make a comeback and would get their own re-run.

All of these shows were widely watched and DD is once again is ready to take the viewers back to the good old days by reviving the nostalgia.

Malgudi Days

 

Any kid, who was born in the 80’s, will surely remember running back home early from school just so he/she can watch Malgudi Days.

The popular TV series, which is based on the works of India’s greatest cartoonist R.K.Laxman and revolves around the life of little Swami and his friends, who live in Malgudi and have adventures which captured the fancy of every kid.

Long before India was gripped with 100s of daily soaps and TV drama series, Doordarshan had given Indian audience it’s very first family drama which had gripped the Indian middle-class for good 17 months (a huge achievement for the 80s).



Based on the family life in the 80’s the show revolved around a family’s daily struggles and aspirations that even today’s family faces.

The show can thus, still connect with the current audience.

Buniyaad

 

Unlike many other TV series at that time, Buniyaad held a special place for many in the 80’s as it dealt with the issue of 1947’s India-Pakistan partition.

The popular drama series was directed by now very famous Ramesh Sippy and Jyoti and aired on DD for the first time in 1986.

The show also introduced very talented actors and now veteran actors like Kanwaljeet Singh, Alok Nath and Kruttika Desai.

Wagle Ki Duniya

 

Wagle Ki Duniya was one of India’s early sitcoms and was popular long before names such as ‘Hum Paanch’ and ‘Dekh Bhai Dekh’ hit TV.

The series was set around the everyday struggle of a nervous sales clerk named Srinivas Wagle, which was played by actor Anjan Srivastav.

The series was also popular because it was created and narrated by the legendary writer/cartoonist RK Laxman, and featured actor Shah Rukh Khan in a guest appearance even before he made his TV debut with ‘Fauji’ in 1988.
