Thank you sooo much for sharing the fond memories of our very own Doordarshan days!Smile
Almost all of you remember more than me! Lovesunshine I dont remember that Hiten was part of Itihaas even dont have any clue of Surekha Sikri and the characters you mentioned in the last line of your post...Alas i cudn't follow the whole show as I shifted to a new place and we didn't brought new tv for long and the old one we left wid our remaining Joint familySmile
But yes you reminded me of Choti maa being DIL of Ambika's sister. If I am not wrong and not mixing two serials ...Her name was Dr Mamta she entered the house after love marraige much to the annoyance of her MIL and her Brother in law (Karan) was lost in childhood and he was uneducated when he was found by Sheetal and Mahendra/ Arun Bali (Mahendra went insane in the mid of teh show and i guess he was furious wid his sister in law's (Priya Tendulkar)hubby Benzamin Gilani FOR HE WAS ONCE HIS servant ...AND I bleakly remeber Even Sheetal had affair wid him before getting married to Rich Mahendra) and tehn they trained him overnight and gave him Bobby deol's hair style...and then he fell for a spoilt brait Ayesha and married her and she changed into a gud person and she too belonhed to an estranged family her sister Sapna had a mysterious entry in teh show (Much like AShn negi in Bade ache lagte hai) Ayesha nevr knew she has a sister and her mother is alive and divorced by her father...Ayseha stayed wid dad while sapna wid mom and then she came to reconcile Ayesha wid her dying mom...Am I right? Hope it happenned in Itihaas only!
Mona and Mukul (Poonam Narula (Kasam and Shararat fame) Played DIL of Another sister (Sunita) of Ambika ...she cudn't conceive so they hired Chanda the pros to give birth to Mukul's child...Mukul also wanted to Pursue Singing career! ...
Mona's brother was Suraj and her dad (Veenit Kumar) had hair style like that of Abdul kalalamji LOLand he portaryed an interesting grey shade wid his friend shrivastava (Lalit Tiwari), Shrivastava's wife was abused, insane and always mute for she lost her daughter later she was cured and I don't remember who was discovered to be her daughter? a politician...Mona's Mayka story was full of politics...Her brother Suraj too had an interesting story he was married to a negative and demanding wife ...(The one who plays Megha's sis in law in Na bole tum na maine kuch kaha)
I remember till Alleeza a look like of Ambika entrs the show and the real Shivani was kidnapped by dont know whom amd she writes a letter wid bolod to hero inspector Kabeer who releases her finally Aleeza was daughter of some doctor and i guess the same was mentor of Ambika...
I remember Ambika interfering in Padmini's college and using her status against her untill she know that she is her own daughter!!!!!!!!!
I also rember cute Peshali/preshali she was married to Bittu and they also hatched some cunning plan infront of company workers wherin she played boss and her hubby played worker...
Cudn'y watch till Padmini know that Ambika is her mother...I hazily remeber Shivani having hallucinations of Shoes and other stuff reminding he rof her hubby seemed he was abusive ...When I watch present day serials from the same production house I
strongly feel Itihaas was one of its kind. Specially in regard to its
coherence and the plot construction! Three sisters their past and lives,
their children and their relationships wid their life partners and
extended relations...every character was given enogh space wid an
interesting storyline...Plots and subplots all had equal passionate intensity!.
And Yes Nikkie I also came to know taht the only TUlasi that Google knows is Smiriti Irani!
But I rember DD 1 Tulsi...Though I never followed th show as i used to come back home from school at sharp 1
I remember Tulsi's opening episode was in court, wherin Tulsi murdered Rich Jaiswal defending herself against Rape attempt... So far I know Tulsi too was a story of three estranged sisters ...Tulsi Anita and Gul... Anita ( Not Sure of her name) played some buisness women or Model ...Gul was a cute adopted teen and I loved her though I remember not any of her scenes or storyline...Tulsi loved some advocate adthen i guess there was some love triangle...
and it was reveled that Jaiswal's wife murdered him for she knew his character...and She loved her brother in law and married his brother under some presseure...
Enough of scraching the brain for the day!
