The fifth in the series. Still a couple of more left. If you have missed the earlier parts………..
Both program showed Hindi movie songs. Chayyageet was Mumbai Doordarshan program and Chitrahaar came from national Television. Chitrahaar was more popular as it showed songs from upcoming movies. There were no movie trailers then. I used to go to my friends house because he had colour television then. Chitrahaar used to come on Wednesday and Chayyageet used to come on Friday.
A science fiction serial starring Akshay Anand. Somewhere it’s written the small boy in the serial was Karan Johar. It was something to do with time travel. They travel to the time of independence struggle and then travel forward to 2035 (I think again). A nice serial
Space City Sigma
Featuring Milind Soman or was he in Captain Vyom? The serial was inspired by Star Trek. The hindi made it confusing. I think it was directed by Ketan Mehta. A poor copy of Star Trek
Param Vir Chakra
Sunday morning drama about all those soldiers who got Param Vir Chakra. Nice patriotic stuff.
Current affair program hosted by journalist Nalini Singh. The title was surprisingly a song by Jagjit Singh called “Hello Zindagi, Zindagi noor hai, Magar isme jeene ka dastoor hai”. When the program started I expected some story in it. But strangely Nalini Singh is seen speaking very fast. Never saw much of it.
The serial was hindi, the setting was south Indian and the theme song North Indian “Baale bale bale tenali rama”. Although very much popular, it ended very soon.
I liked the serial very much. It was based in a hostel and they had all these different houses and the rivalry between houses. I think the serial use to come on Sunday afternoon. Amit Kumar sang the title song, “Dharti par Suraj ki kirne….. then something something and then Neev rakhe vidyalay ki”
One detective serial that almost reached the quality of Karamchand. Based on some Bengali character, it had Rajit kapoor playing the lead. The characters were lot similar to Sherlock Holmes with also a Dr. Watson.
Gul Gulshan Gulfam
Pariksheet Sahani was acting in this serial. I think this serial was shot in Kashmir on the house boat. Kind of Soap Opera. Didn’t watch it much.
I remember the theme song. It had Farook Sheikh and Dipti Naval. I don’t remember the story.
What’s the good word?
A quiz show. Do not remember the concept. The show was hosted by someone famous. Anybody has answers. Your chance Team A?
Siddhartha Basu hosted this show. I guess his first quiz show.
Om Puri in the title role of Kakaji. Had a very odd laugh. Kind like ha ha ha. Never followed it much.
I think the serial had a different story in each episode and showed a social cause in each. I think it was made by the same person who made “Bahaar Aane Tak” (Remember Sumit Saigal)
Sunday mornings. Based on the Indian armed forces
Om Puri traveling on the Indian railway from Kanyakumari to Kashmir. The first travel show of India.
A Science magazine. Girish Karnad use to host the show. They tried to explain science in a lay man’s language. Much much better than the boring UGC program every weekdays.
