Storyline

The show revolves around the life of an upper class Gujarati family, the Sarabhais, who live in a luxury apartment building in the upmarket Cuffe Parade area of South Mumbai. The family consists of Indravadan Sarabhai (Satish Shah) and his wife Maya (Ratna Pathak), who live in an apartment with their younger son Rosesh (Rajesh Kumar). Their older son Sahil (Sumeet Raghavan) and his wife Monisha Sarabhai (Rupali Ganguly) née Manisha Singh live in the apartment across the hallway. Maya considers the name Manisha middle class and renames her Monisha before their marriage. Monisha's middle-class habits irk Maya. Monisha, on the other hand, does not appreciate Maya's snooty and snobbish behaviour. Indravadan constantly derides Roshesh for being tied to his mother's apron strings and for writing bad poetry. Maya and Roshesh consider Indravadan's attitude towards Rosesh and his gregarious nature boorish. The ensuing conflict and comedy becomes Sarabhai vs Sarabhai. Much of the humour is ...

One of the best TV shows ever !!!
24 June 2011 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Sarabhai vs Sarabhai is one of the best and the most sophisticated comedy show you will ever see.

Sahil, Roshesh, Maya and Indravadan are an atypical south mumbai family. Roshesh with his poems and mannerisms is absolutely humorous. Sahil with all his wittiness and solutions is right on money. Indravadan and Maya have unusual husband-wife quarrels. Maya with her upper class status always amuses me.

Enter Monisha - a middle class girl who marries Sahil and everything from there is a roller coaster ride.

The way Indravadan abuses Roshesh, roshesh's horrible poems, Maya and Monisha's fights and taunts - everything is just perfect.

To add icing to the cake is Dushyant. A gizmo's freak who is on the prowl to repair anything.

All in all a completely humorous show. Not a single second in each show will you feel bored.

Definitely on 10 things to do before you DIE !!! Watch this show..

10/10 for everything !!!
