I think I never mentioned about it in another chapters but Indian Serials are so freaking LONG!!!
Unlike some dramas in foreign which telecast once in a week, Hindi serials are being telecast Monday to Friday everyday and it goes on for like forever!
Here top ten list of longest running Hindi Serial list with some comment from my side. If you have any of your opinion, just comment it!
And I will just mention from the Hindi channels. I got help from Wikipedia for this by the way, so all the credit for this chapter goes to Wikipedia! Now let's go on with the list.
1. Balika Vadhu Episodes : 2245 (end)
I thought this serial was still ongoing.
There is a funny incident due to this serial and I would like to share it with you guys here. Actually I used to live in Japan years ago and when I came to Nepal for like 2 months or so, I remember this serial was going on. And this serial was about child marriage. And guess what, I didn't know that child marriage only happens in rural areas.
And when we finally came to Nepal once again for proper settlement and I started going to the school, there was one girl who always used to put Tika*on her forehead so close to her hair and I always used to think she was married! I am so glad I was never so close with her or I would have opened my stupid mouth and I would have asked about her marital status!
I still feel so stupid about myself for that. lol
*Tika - it is red liquid-ish thing we put on our forehead for ritual and religious purpose. Some people do it daily basis, some do it only during some festivals. Some Tika also contains raw rice.
Now moving back to the serial talk, do you know how long did it last? Here is the release date - 21st July 2008. The last episode was 31st July 2016!
Can you see that!? It lasted for like 8 years!!! And the story was a total crap! That is my opinion to this serial.
2. Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai Episodes : 2211 (ongoing)
This is a crap. Total crap!
I am glad no one from my family watch this and never even watched this. I just feel sooo annoyed whenever I land up here when I am shuffling through channels. I don't know anything about the story and I don't even want to know about it.
And I think this serial is trying to compete the first one and this is still ongoing so I think this will be in first place in no time. And that number of episodes (2211) is in 14th October 2016 when I uploaded the chapter. If you are reading this another day, it must have increased its number and it might have crossed 2245 by the time and beat the record of Balika Vadhu.
I was about to forget about it: this serial is ongoing from 12th January 2009.
Anyway, who cares?
3. Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah Episodes : 2061 <by 31st October 2016> (ongoing)
I don't know what should I say about this thing. This is a comedy thing and many people loves watching it but... I feel annoyed by a woman's voice. She fakes her voice for that role but that voice! It is so annoying!
Anyway, it was first aired on 28th July 2008. WHHHAAAAAATTT!?
4. Saath Nibhaana Saathiya Episodes : 1900 < by 12th October 2016> (ongoing)
This is another crap. Seriously, what the fuck is going on in this serial!? I never understood the story even in the beginning and I don't know why my mom liked watching this crap. I am glad she doesn't watches this anymore.
