Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah, the popular sit-com, has completed 13 years in the entertainment industry. It is one of the longest-running soaps in the television industry in India and has kept the viewers entertained with their relatable contents. 13 years ago, which started as a mere show, now has a cartoon-based show. Revisiting some of the moments from the show.
Jethalal’s and Babita Ji’s healthy flirting
Jethalal (portrayed by Dilip Joshi) who has a soft-corner towards the neighbor Babita Ji (portrayed by Munmun Dutta) makes sure to watch her from the balcony and start a conversation with her. But he can’t appear as a loser in front of her and their banter often turns into memes on social media which are enjoyed by the netizens.
Argument between Jethalal and Bhide
Jethalal frequently finds himself in situations which forces him to take Bhide’s help and leads to an argument between the two. Bhide, the society’s secretary and who often speaks about his ‘zamaane ki baat’, gets irritated when Jethalal fails to pay the maintenance cheque timely. Even though the two fight over small things, it hasn’t affected their friendship.
Impending marriage of Popatlal
Even though the entire Gokuldham society tries to get Popatlal married as soon as possible, all their efforts and plans becomes useless as they can’t find the perfect match for Popatlal still yet. Popatlal, who portrays a reporter, is attached to his umbrella and considers the society’s mahila mandal as his sisters.
Dayaben (portrayed by Disha Vakani) is one of the most loved characters in the show. Her innocent comedy, long phone calls with her mother, heavy voice, teasing her husband and always ready to perform ‘garba’ in any situation is entertaining as well as lovable. Even after quitting the show for years, the viewers are waiting for her return.
Every small and major occasions are organized by the kids of the society and the unity among families has beautifully displayed. The younger cast including Tapu (Raj Anadkat), Sonu (Palak Sindhwani) and others have grown up doing the show.
The society’s mahila mandal includes Dayaben (now quitted the show), Anjali Mehta, Babita, Mrs. Sodhi and Komal. They takes challenges and solve problems in the society with ‘Satyagraha movement’.
Respect for elders
Father of Jethalal, Bapuji’s character is respected by everyone in the society. He gives advice during problems and shows the right path for everyone. They call him as ‘Champak Chacha’ and takes his blessing before staring any new journey. The comic touch of the character is also loved by the viewers.
Bagha and Nattu kaka works at ‘Gada Electronics’ of Jethalal and their ‘nok-jhok’ with ‘seth ji’ Jethalal are always fun to see. He treats them like a family. Abdul ‘bhai’ has a general store inside the society where ‘purush mandal’ goes to have soda after dinner.
