On Songs and Sitcoms



OK , first things first ...

This is a Malayalam song. I wish I would have learned "
kaam-chalao" malayalam from my roommate in Bangalore, nevertheless this video, as told by my another mallu friend here, is from a new music band and they have come up with an excellent composition

I loved the video, the girl,music and the lyrics.




Few more things i am doing currently... I am watching episodes of

1. Byomkesh Bakhshi :

This was a fictional Bengali detective character created by Sharadindu Bandyopadhyay on the lines of Sherlock Holmes,Hercule Poirot. Adventures of this detective was later converted to a sitcom aired on DD.

Byomkesh Bakshi made his first appearance in the book Satyanveshi(Satya-Truth and anveshi - investigator). Here he meets Ajit, the writer,narrator

This has been the best detective series I ever got to watch.






2. of I Dream of Jeannie ... from the very first episode...

I recently came to know , this sitcom was originally written by Sidney Sheldon





3. Making arrangements to view episodes of Yeh Jo Hai Zindagi

Yeh Jo Hai Zindagi (literal meaning: 'This Thing Called Life') was a popular comedy sitcom on Indian television, aired for the first time in 1984. It was written by comedy writer Sharad Joshi and directed by S. S. Oberoi and Raman Kumar [1]

The title song was sung by Kishore Kumar.

Sharad Joshi is one of the best satirist in Hindi literature, i have read his couple of books and i am absolutely in love with them.
I recently found few of his stories on Internet presented by his daughter Neha Joshi

Here is one of my favourite: "Heroine ka Nahana" - "Bathing of the actress". The link only works on IE for me.










I also find a list of all programs aired on DD-National , which was kind of nostalgic to go through.

A question to my readers, if anyone could answer.

I am also looking for another comedy sitcom aired on DD in yest er years featuring Lilliput and Ratna Pathak. Basically the story line was there are three friends living in Mumbai in the same house and searching for jobs. I vaguely remember it being called "Idhar Udhar". Could anyone please help me in recalling the name of that serial.


I have also mentioned about another sitcom in my previous post, ramandria.tv.
This is the first sitcom made for Internet .. and target audiences are all office going folks who want to de stress during office hours.

Well this is what my life is revolving around in US these days ...

I am going to New York in May end :-)
Watch this space for pictures.
