Throwback Thursday – 5 Doordarshan TV Shows That Will Make 90s Kids Nostalgic

With the news of SRK’s Circus back on Doordarshan (DD), we think DD is on a major nostalgia spree. DD and its iconic shows are always our favorite. With the Indian TV Industry growing, we still love DD for its awesome old shows which are truly treasure trove.

According to new agency reports, DD is also planning to bring back some shows on the channel due to the tremendous amount of requests for the programmes which are still fresh in the minds of people.

Here we list out 5 awesome DD shows that will definitely make you smile while we take you down the memory lane:

  1. Malgudi Days

Malgudi Days

Based on RK Narayan’s popular novel, it followed the lives of the ordinary folk living in the fictitious town of Malgudi. The town of Malgudi felt so real that people actually went in search of this place. Malgudi itself might be imaginary but for many growing up then, it was larger than life.

  1. Dekh Bhai Dekh


Although a sitcom, this show taught us the importance of family and how three generation of Diwan family supported each other in their ups and downs. It saw Shekhar Suman, Deven Bhojani, Farida Jalal and many others in the main cast.

  1. Jungle book

Jungle book

This was a must watch show for all the kids in the 90s. The Mowgli and his animal kingdom every Sunday transported to another Kingdom all together. We are sure every 90s kids knows the theme song by heart “Jungle Jungle Baat Chali Hai”.

  1. Shriman Shrimati


While today ‘Bhabhi Ji Ghar Pe Hai’ is tickling the audiences with the ‘love thy neighbour’ concept humour and comedy, Shriman Shrimati had already upped the ante of the Indian Comedy shows. Written by Ashok Patole and directed by Rajan Waghdhare, the show starred Late Jatin Kanakia, Reema Lagoo, Rakesh Bedi and Archana Puran Singh.

  1. Fauji


The show in which King of Bollywood debuted but that was hardly the reason why this show gained its popularity. The show showed us the rigorous training behind the Indian army and how tough it is to be a Fauji.
