Sarabhai vs. Sarabhai, one of the best Indian sitcoms I've had ever come across. It's been almost ten years since the last episode of this amazing show aired, and how desperately we want it back, right? The cast, the dialogues and the amazing quotes, the show did it all.
Have a look at the epic cast and how they are today!
Maya Sarabhai (played by Ratna Pathak Shah), she used to be at sixes and sevens with her daughter-in-law, Monisha. Sophisticated and talented, she always ensured that her younger son, Rosesh doesn't marry to someone who is middle class. Upper-crust in her every aspect of life, she used to save his son Sahil, from his wife Monisha's middle-class acts.
Patent dialogue: Mocking and correcting, she used to abstain everyone by saying "It's so middle-class!" Monisha being the victim always. She used to cover later on by saying "Don't mind huh beta, I'm just joking."
Indravardan Sarabhai also known as Indu (played by Satish Shah) used to irritate his wife and jab his younger son, Rosesh. Also, he used to support his daughter-in-law, Monisha in the case of a fight between her and his wife, Maya.
Patent dialogue: He used to imitate his younger son, Rosesh and often make fun of him by calling him "Momma's boy."
Saahil Sarabhai (played by Sumeet Raghavan) is always sandwiched between his mother and wife Monisha, and during their fights, he used to pour oil on troubled waters. He is calm, wise and noble. Unlike his father, he was wise in handling matters of his mother and wife. He doesn't like hurting anyone.
Monisha Sarabhai (played by Rupali Ganguly) was the daughter-in-law of Sarabhais. She was suspicious, stingy and scanty. She used to keep her house very scruffily which always exasperated her mother-in-law Maya. She was always demeaned by her mother-in-law. Careless and middle class in nature, she used to fall miserably to take advantage of everything efficiently.
Rosesh Sarabhai also known as Momma's boy (played by Rajesh Kumar) was a wannabe actor and poet. He was the second son of Maya and Indravardan. He used to jabber like a kid. He was humiliated for his poems by everyone in the family except Maya. He was very loyal to his mother and often mocked by his father.
Dushyant Painter (played by Deven Bhojani) was a son-in-law of Maya, married to her daughter Sonya. He was a technical and electrical connoisseur. He used to visit Sarabhais residence more than his wife and was much despised by the rest of the family.
Madhubhai (played by Arvind Vaidya) was married to Indravardan's sister Ilaben. He was partially deaf and still used to refuse hearing aid. A lot of humor is derived by his misinterpretations.
Patent dialogue: He used to annoy and trouble Indu by always saying "hein?"
