Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah: The Heartwarming Indian Serial About Community and Comedy

Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah is a popular Indian Hindi television serial that has been broadcast on SAB TV since July 28, 2008. The show is produced by Neela Asit Modi and Asit Kumar Modi and is based on the column “Duniya Ne Undha Chashma” written by Taarak Mehta for the Gujarati weekly newspaper Chitralekha. It is the most-watched program on Indian television.

The story is set in Gokuldham, a housing society in Mumbai, where people from various backgrounds and cultures coexist harmoniously. The show emphasizes humanity and light-hearted comedy. The main character is Jethalal Champaklal Gada, played by Dilip Joshi, a businessman who runs an electronic showroom. Jethalal is known for his love of jalebi fafda and his tendency to wake up late in the morning. He is often troubled by his son Tapu, wife Daya, and brother-in-law Sundar at home, and by customers and employees at his shop.

Daya Jethalal Gada, played by Disha Vakani, is Jethalal’s wife and the mother of Tapu. She is known for her Garba dance and her Gujarati accent. Tapu, whose real name is Tipendra, is played by Bhavya Gandhi (later replaced by Raj Anadkat and Nitish Bhaluni). He is a mischievous child who enjoys playing cricket and often gets into trouble at school and at home.

Champaklal Jayantilal Gada, played by Amit Bhatt, is Jethalal’s father and Tapu’s grandfather. He is a strict and wise man who often imparts wisdom to Jethalal and other members of the society. Popatlal Bhagwati Prasad Pandey, played by Shyam Pathak, is a journalist who is always seen carrying an umbrella and worrying about his marriage. Taarak Mehta, played by Shailesh Lodha (later replaced by Sachin Shroff), is Jethalal’s best friend and a writer who often helps Jethalal out of trouble.

The show is mainly filmed in Goregaon, Mumbai, but some parts have been shot in Gujarat, Delhi, London, Brussels, Paris, and Hong Kong. It has completed 3000 episodes and remains one of the top shows in India. Many Bollywood actors have made special appearances on the show, including Shahrukh Khan, Salman Khan, Hrithik Roshan, Amitabh Bachchan, and Varun Dhawan.

In 2017, an animated series based on the characters from Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah, titled Taarak Mehta Ka Chhota Chashmah, began airing on SonyLIV. The show is aired from Monday to Friday at 11:30 am.
