Evergreen Serials !!

Taking a cue from the blogs of TWIN GEMINI and FERRARI on Old yet fabulos Indian Jingles of yesteryears , I decided to post about the Evergreen Soaps/Serials that dominated the Indian Televisions in late 1980's and Early 1990's.

DoorDarshan had real good serials before the cable TV era.

Few of them :

1. தொலைந்து போனவர்கள் .. (Rajesh & Friends)
2. ஒரு வீணையின் கதை..
3. K.Balachandar's ரயில் சிநேகம்..
4. Hindi- Tamil serials like JUNOON (பிடிவாதம்),AJNABI(அந்நியன்),SHANTHI..
5. S V Sekars வண்ண கோலங்கள்..

Weren't those serials way better than the present day serials ??
I guess they carried a strong social message too !!

(Can anyone let me know where can i get video/DVD of these Soaps??)

Why is everyone on a flashback mode? My favourites - Indha veenaikku theriyadha song from Rayil Sneham and Manager Cheena in Vanna Kolangal.

I have a copy of Vannak Kolangal both in audio tape and VHS formats. Also other S.V.Sekar stuff like Thevai Oru Maappillai, Kaadule Poo, Kaattula Mazhai, Aayiram Udhai Vaangiya Aboorva Sigamani etc. Too much fun :-)

1. Tholaindhu Ponavargal, was a very touching serial. I still remember the scene where they get to meet after they are old. An amazing serial.

2. Dont remember this one.

3. The song was the ultimate. The ending was class.

"Mile sur" is a superb song with a good blend of the complete array of music available in India.

yep, brings back good memories. rayil sneham, penn (Suhasini's), SVShekhar's - like most of his stuff, Crazy Mohan, Mouli - these are the people who made DD bearable those days.

I bought some from
Mouli's flight one being a recent addition.

I liked tholaindhu ponavargal and rayl snegam...
actually dont care much about dubbed serials. apart from those 2-3 dubbed, rest were not the 'so-called' mega serial genre, which is why people like it and still remember it.
