My favorite - SVe Shekher Drama

Even before the Mega Serials occupied our TV Channels, Tamil dramas would be short and crispy. It would regularly 13 episodes or its multiples. And comedy dramas will always hog the limelight. I remember SVe Shekher and Crazy Mohan dramas are entertaining and we wait to watch each episode every week. I think the dramas will be shown two days a week.

As a true Chennaite, you would enjoy the typical “Madras” Baashai in these comedy dramas. Guys these are truly hilarious and evergreen. Sample dialogues, (you cannot translate this)

“Ghumnu okkathu taaraa pakkallam”
“Puthu TV ippadiya makkar pannum”
“Yappa maniyachippa Padtha poduppa..kaasu koduthu ticket vangi erukkom”

Now I found lot of sites where you could hear these dramas online. I was very much pleased to found this old drama “Nam Kudumbam” in raaga.

Sunday afternoon, yesterday’s vegetable kuruma and this drama in background, it was quite a good combination.
