It is still as fresh as it was in the start of the show. TMKOC has been changing everyone’s opinion all these five years which depicts the day to day situations that happen in every home and how they are tackled accordingly by the members of the Society all together. Every episode has been a master piece in itself which never gets low on the series of laughter for its audience of all age groups. I would call it a satirical parody of happenings that also inculcates many ethical values to the spectators. I congratulate my complete team for their success”
Five years and still going strong as most popular show. Sounds difficult but this is something that Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah has managed to do with apparent ease and enjoyment.
