During early 1980s, this comedy serial was one of the biggest hit shows to be shown on the Indian television. It was a laugh riot across the nation as the roads would get empty every Friday 8.30 pm; a fantastic way to end the week and welcome the weekend!
The episodes revolved around funny events in the lives of Ranjit (Shafi Inamdar) and Renu (Swaroop Sampat) - a married couple along with Renu's single & unemployed younger brother Raja (Rakesh Bedi). A trademark of the show was Satish Shah who played a different character in every episode, coming in contact with Ranjit & Renu's world.
