Television Shows are getting inspired from Hollywood!
Hindi movies are being remade into hit daily soaps!
English and Hindi movies are mixed to make some new daily soaps to cater to the needs of ever-growing appetite of Indian audiences. Then why aren’t the old classic shows being remade so that GenX can enjoy some gems from the past?
We present you some of the old popular tv shows from the 90’s which are evergreen and can really be remade in a contemporary fashion to serve befitting entertainment to the youth of today! We would love to watch them for sure!
1) Hum Paanch
This hilarious comedy from the stable of Balaji Telefilms in 90’s is something which had a universal flavour. A dysfunctional family of a couple with five daughters who are truly unique can just be the right kind of entertainment for today’s youth when women empowerment is the theme on everyone’s lips! And yes, it also had Vidya Balan making her debut so maybe she can return to TV with this one!
2) Banegi Apni Baat
College life is one of the best phases of anyone’s life and it can never go out of fashion! This hard hitting show about college life, politics, love and what not can really be served up to satiate the taste buds of GenX! For older generation it can be great nostalgia and for youth, some rock ‘n’ roll entertainment. For those who don’t know, ace actor Irfan Khan made his debut with this show as a father of the lead character and now he himself plays a lead actor in Hindi movies! What a journey, phew!
3) Dekh Bhai Dekh
This crazy LOL kind of comedy isn’t made nowadays! The world got Shekhar Suman from this show and what Kapil Sharma is achieving these days in the comedy space, Dekh Bhai Dekh achieved this and much more almost 20 years ago! This crazy family has to be recreated for complete family entertainment!
It was for the first time that on Indian Television, women were shown drinking, smoking and flirting, shedding all the inhibitions and leading a life they wished for! Tara was a pioneer of the sorts when it came to women’s independence and truly celebrated it with aplomb! Given the kind of regressive shows we have today, Tara can be like a breath of fresh air to depict the real face of women, to empower them and help them to get their right place in society! That’s what is needed today!
5) Zee Horror Show
Okay, not everyone is interested in the horror genre, but then in those olden days, the show created ripples with entire families getting hooked on to it for some scary pleasure! Imagine the year when technology wasn’t that good so the ghosts were all fake masks and made-believe funny figures. Still, we loved them. What if today’s progressive technology is used to create such a show; it can undeniably create mass hysteria and enormous TRPs!
Hope someone does try to put their moolah and efforts in such classic masterpieces to bring them back to life for today’s audience!
They would surely be smash hits!
