Every kid that grew up in the 90’s knows the obsession with Star Plus dramas a little too well. Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi, Kasauti Zindagi Ki and Kahin Tou Hoga were quite the rage back then. The storyline was really something. Everybody had a jurrwa from dusra janam or simply just doppelgangers that conveniently showed up. The plotholes were endless, people died and came back to life like afterlife was just one big fat joke. Oh, but the greatest thing since sliced bread HAD to be the camera angles paired with *dishumdishumdishum* sound effects.
Star Plus really revolutionalized the whole soap watching experience brought to local television.
One @LeenaAlvi tweeted some very comical tweets around just this that was just TOO good to pass on.
The time Anurag Basu had some very grounded “doubts” about his bloodline.

A casual dig at how numbers were literally just pulled out of the ass.
The number of episodes defied all logic and quite frankly, gave “The Bold And The Beautiful a run for their money.
Case in point: Kyunkay Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi; debuted in 2000 and ran through 2008. That’s some solid commitment right there.
The very obvious lack of trust. I mean, what’s a girl gotta do to make you happy Mr. Sujhal-bloodeh-Garewal? GOSHHHHH.
The ultimate betrayal cuz Star Plus was JUST. THAT. EXTRA.
The time when Star Plus gave us the best meme gems.
We’ve all…pretty much…umm…been there and done that.
The deaths and resurrections that were minor inconveniences.
That look the aunties always give you? Something borrowed.
10/10 have felt the pain.
Pizza is love. Pizza is life.
Only 90’s kids would understand…
