Hi, I wish to address to the people who liked the simplicity of BBB, where only comedy existed and no negativity and lots of morals......there is another show which again is made by a Gujarati artist on another channel.
Firstly, I would like to apologize to everyone about my sentence in my previous post that this serial is sort of equal to BBB. Those were my feelings and for some people there is nothing better than BBB. So I have changed the title of this post from "An alternative to BBB" to "A sub-alternative to BBB" reflecting it is not equal to BBB.
But given the fact, that our best BBB serial is no more (although we can still see past BBB episodes and enjoy nearly the same), it will be nice to see something which is good and will at least make us laugh. Something is better than nothing. If nothing, I can at least assure you that this serial will bring some smile in your face. Another good thing about this serial (if you watch it) is that it is telecasted 4 days a week (Monday-Thursday)
OK enough of talking and suspense, the serial is "Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah
" shown in SAB channel at 8.30PM India Time. But you can watch nearly all its episodes in YouTube. Wait don't close this page and start searching YouTube. I will give you a brief introduction to this serial so you can have a background.
[Just once caution: There is one character which you w
ill find speaking in a stupid way....!
and she is character Daya..but you will get used to that as I did)IF forum: Discussion Forum: http://www.india-forums.com/forum_topics.asp?FID=446

Other source of information/videos:
SAB channel website
YouTube (all episodes there)
Morals taught via many situations
No hatred whatsoever
Respect to elders shown
No adult-related issues (pure family drama)
(a) This serial started in July 2008 (just less than 2 years).
(b) In BBB, we saw so many people of which everyone belonged to one family
Here there are so many people but are neighbors and essentially live like a family.
(c) In BBB, we saw importance of family values (nothing can beat BBB in this issue)
Here the serial raises importance of community, national and cultural issues.
(d) Something which is common is comedy. There are more Gujarati words in this serial than BBB but that is still restricted to some characters only. Soon you will notice the character Jethalal is the major comedian and is a Gujarati.
Ok enough of comments, give it a try and if you like it, then share it. Like I did.
