Indian writers do not believe in the concept of seasons. Thus, a serial is stretched for years where new generations come and go, but “Baa” remains the head of the family. Let’s look at some of the serials that have crossed the 1000 Milestone.
1. Balika Vadhu
The main protagonists are married off at a very young age and when they get older they find that they don’t love each other and find someone else. And then the rage and anger and a little bit of Saas-Bahu drama, how could we leave that. It has completed 2000 episodes and is off-air.
2. Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashma
A comedy sitcom, where the residents of a housing society help each other to overcome problems faced by them in daily life. Indeed, SAB TV brings shows that are worth the enjoyment with family. It has crossed 2000 episodes and is still making people laugh.
3. Diya Aur Baati Hum
It talks about a lady and her dream to become an IPS officer. She is married off early, and she realizes that her dreams would be shattered; the husband comes to her rescue. Eventually, the family supports her, and she becomes an IPS officer. It has completed 1487 episodes and is off-air.
4. Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata hai
It shows the life of a married couple, their ups and downs through life. It is a typical Hindi serial, with all the Saa-Bahu and family drama and is going strong with over 2000 episodes airing on Star Plus.
5. Sasural Simar Ka
The saga of two sisters, married to two Brothers. It is indeed the story of the “Sasural” of “Simar”. This serial has gained loads of attention because the writers are too creative and twist and turn the story way too much. Speculations suggest that it should have wrapped up earlier, but it’s on-air on Colors and has completed 1600 episodes.
6. Saath Nibhana Saathiya
Yet again a saga of two Sisters, but with a twist that they are step sisters and one of them hates the other. Plotting against her in the beginning and now taking time leap twice in its reign, this serial is gaining interest among viewers. It finished over 1000 episodes and is on-air on Star Plus.
The writers managed to develop a story different from the typical Saas-Bahu kind and trying to add seasons to it. This sitcom is a courtroom drama of a famous lawyer, and every episode is the story of his new case. Having two seasons, it has managed to cross 1000 episodes and is off-air.
Well, CID was clearly mandatory in this list. Since my childhood, I have been watching CID. It is a show that describes different cases that come to CID, and the journey of the ACP from “Daya, darwaza todo” to “Daya, kuch to gadbad hai”. With eighteen years, it is going strong with over 1000 episodes and is still on-air.
9. Kasautii Zindagii Kay
Only Ekta Kapoor could pull off a name with multiple, unnecessary “I”s. It is the story of a girl and her tragic love life. She loved someone and married the other. With a total of 1423 episodes, it is currently off-air.
10. Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi
