25 years on, viewers still remember 'Hum Log'
On a quiet summer evening in 1984, Basesar Ram and his family entered Indian drawing rooms and became part of every home with a

television set. Now exactly 25 years later, Badki, Chhutki, Dadi, Nanhe and every other character of Doordarshan‚€™s first soap, ‚€˜Hum Log‚€™, continue to be remembered fondly.

Launched on July 7, 1984, ‚€˜Hum Log‚€™ had an average viewership of 50 million per episode. In a research paper, Arvind Singhal and Evertt M Rogers say that even in non-Hindi speaking regions the soap‚€™s rating was between 20 and 40% while in North India it ranged between 60 and 90%. Veteran actor Ashok Kumar, who delivered an epilogue at the end of each episode, got nearly 400,000 letters in response.

Abhinav Chaturvedi, who played Nanhe, recalls that during a trip to Los Angeles in 1987, he walked into a Gujarati shop to buy some namkeen. ‚€œI was bemused to find the complete set of 156 episodes of the serial on VHS. It blew my mind,‚€Ě he says.

Ashok Kumar, a star in his own right, confessed to Singhal, a professor of communication and social change at the University of Texas that ‚€œ18 months of Hum Log did more to (his) popularity than 50 years of films.‚€Ě

Young boys and girls wrote to Kumar pleading him to convince their parents that they be allowed to marry the man/woman of their choice. Even though the serial ended in 1985, Kumar kept receiving occasional letters as late as 1998.

Former I&B secretary Bhaskar Ghose says, ‚€œHum Log was a social content soap opera.‚€Ě The idea then was entertainment with education. Broadcast in Hindi for 17 months (between 1984-85) on national DD through 156 episodes at 9pm slot, the soap centred on the joys and sorrows of the Rams, a lower-middle class joint family of three generations.

It‚€™s 25 years since. But even in the age of 200 channels, Basesar Ram and his family continue to occupy a place in the hearts of the viewers.
