    Recollecting old TV serials

    I've been planning to start this thread for a long time... Most of us are glued to the TV right now with serials like annamalai, metti oli etc.. but we have to thank doordarshan those days (80s and 90s) for those weekly TV serials they had produced. To be frank, all these mega TV serials with full of azhugai was derived from the Tuesday 7.30 dramas in doordarshan :)... Neways the purpose of this thread is to bring back memories of those TV serials and discuss about them.. I will start with a few and hubbers are welcome to add their input to this too..

    1) Ambicarpathy ( y. g mahendran and Ramya krishnan)
    2) Jeeboomba
    3) dr. Narendhranin vinodha vazhakku
    4) silandhi valai
    5) Neela maala
    6) Idhu oru manidhanin kadhai
    7) Iravil oru pagal
    8) Ivala en manaivai
    9) Paramartha guruvum seedargalum
    10) Maadhu seenu
    11) adade manohar
    12) flight AI102 (I dont remember the name correctly)
    13) Amloo (featuring baby shalini)
    14) dileep deepa divakar (or something like that.. venu aravind)

    we already discussed most of them in old tfmpage.
    Anyway we can have descriptive recollections here

    Last one is Dinakar Deepa Dileep(Oct - Dec 1988 )
    Some more to add to the list are Chitirappavai(Oct-Dec 89 ), Galaata Kudumbam(Jan-Mar 1989 ), Flight 714(Jan-Mar 88 ), Solladi Sivashakti(Apr 88 ), Shakti 90(Feb 90)....anyway, include anything that came on DD pre-92.

    What was the freedom struggle serial of Sep 90?(characters like Ezhil, Pandian(Pandian), Chockappan(Nazar), Kamal Ghosh)?
    We can switch to Hindi DD if this topic gets exhausted
    I have those discussions saved on disk. Let me know if u want them

    hhw, i think we discussed this as part of SOTD or some thread and we never had a dedicated thread.. correct me if i'm wrong.. .
    I'm sure there were many serials like this which I dont seem to recollect now..
    vanna kolangal, nam kudumbam, kalyanathukku kalyanam (featuring news reader varadharajan) etc..

    Galatta Kudumbam was my favorite serial of those days. Featured in Jan-Mar 1989 and had Srividhya. According to Database Saravanan it had actor Vikram in it though I cant recollect the face now.

    A little bit like the Anurag serial on Hindi DD sunday morn(1990).

    walrus: That was 'Flight 172'. An excellent one by Mouli. Who can ever forget the flight scene where he describes 'naadhswaram' to a north indian.
    I heard it was his debut drama effort while working in Ponds. One of the greatest comedy writers in TN.
    I vaguely remember another one of his 'Ammaavaasai', in which there's a hilarious scene where tries to commit suicide.

    Can we recollect more such scenes?
