‘Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah’ and ‘Saath Nibhana Saathiya’: What do they have in common?
They are just two of the several Gujarati shows on air currently that are doing extremely well
Gujarati culture came right into Indian drawing rooms with the popular television show Ek Mahal Ho Sapno Ka in 1999 and, after more than a decade, it is still one of the strongest flavours on the tube. Those based in Bihar, Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Haryana, Rajasthan and Maharashtra too abound on the small screen. Be it a weekly or a daily soap, the regional flavour is everywhere. But Gujarati shows dominate. Shows like Saath Nibhana Saathiya, Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah and Ram Milaayi Jodi are continuing the trend that started 13 years ago and hit a high with Baa Bahoo Aur Baby and Khichdi.

Priya of Bade Acche Lagte Hain works as a lecturer even after marrying into a rich household. Widowed Megha Vyas of Na Bole Tum… Na Maine Kuch Kaha gets a job so she can supplement her family’s income instead of depending on her brother-in-law. But they remain exceptions, not the norm. Here are a few of the norms that had us groaning: Click here to read more

Preeto, get your act right!
A know-it-all heroine is just one of the many minuses of the show
