Nostalgia of some golden serials (Star Plus)

Hello peeps! Well, I am here with a quick nostalgia of the golden times of Star Plus…. The time when they used to offer us some amazing serials! I will be focusing during the times of 2011-2014, as according to me, those were the golden years! So, let’s remember some outstanding serials of those times….

Iss Pyar Ko Kya Naam Doon?

Oh, we possibly can’t forget this serial, nor the all-time famous couple ArShi even in our dreams! It just aired for a year, but it managed to capture our hearts! What an amazing pair they were… the bubbly Khushi Kumari Gupta and the ruthless Arnav Singh Raizada…. Their banters, arguments, lovey-dovey moments are always going to remain in our hearts.

Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai?

During its initial years, this serial was awesome! It showed the beautiful journey of the young couple, Akshara and Naitik, as a married couple to adjustment issues. It also showed that relationships should be handled delicately. But sadly, they have ruined the show now by just dragging it.

Diya aur Bati Hum

I still remember how this show used to top the trp charts till 1000 episode! It was a very unique concept of a loving and a self-made man, Sooraj, helping his ambitious wife, Sandhya, to follow her dreams of becoming an IPS officer. I used to just love this show…. I still remember how I wished for a husband just like Sooraj, who would help me achieve my dreams… Sadly, the show ended. Now, star plus came back with its sequel, which doesn’t interest me at all!

Ek Hazaaron Mein Meri Behna Hai

Aww… this one was so cute! It was a family drama, where two sisters, Maanvi and a mature Jeevika, do anything for each other. This serial portrayed a really cute sisterly bond that I can never forget.

Sath Nibhana Sathiya

Thank god it ended! Uff! The show was horrible! But, during its initial year, it was just the opposite… fantastic! It showed a beautiful bond between saas and bahu. While, other serials showed saas vs. bahu drama, this one showed just the opposite. I loved how they showed Kokila playing a mentor to her bahu, Gopi. But, again, unfortunately, they dragged it and the show became awful.

Ek Hasina Thi

Admist all the lovey-dovey serials, Star Plus came up with this revenge drama. And it was so interesting and intriguing! It was a story of how Durga sets out to avenge the crimes committed by Shaurya, a playboy and the son of the powerful Goenka family. This story always managed to keep me on the end of my seats.


I have always been a fan of mythological shows, but this serial managed to be the best one. It was so funny, yet fascinating… in fact, not only me but my whole family would sit to watch it! The actors were awesome, and I am very sad that it ended so fast… but hey, at least it wasn’t dragged like other serials.

Yeh Hai Mohabbatein

I effin loved this show in the beginning!! It was such a unique concept… two people marrying for the custody of Ruhi. The Jodi of Raman and Ishita was 10/10! And the bond between Ishita and Ruhi was so damn cute! But, they ruined it! They ruined my favorite show! I don’t watch it now, but I still remember those days when I used to crave for this serial!

Now weren’t those some golden years when Star Plus had some amazing stories to offer? Well, there were more good serials between 2011-2014, like Pratigya or Pyar Ka Dard Hai Meetha Meetha Pyaara Pyaara, and probably more! But you can’t decline the fact that Star Plus had more to offer you in the past than now… Currently, none of the serials match the magic of previous ones… Yes, there is Naamkaran, Ishqbaaz, and few that are OK… but c’mon, at the end, I feel like their story is also being destroyed slowly by slowly…

Ughhh!!! I just miss those times!!!! And I am pretty sure I am not the only one who loved these serials during those times…
