Childhood memories - Vikram Aur Betaal- Doordarshan Serial

Another memorable serial Vikram Aur Betaal.
One of the most engaging TV serials of the 1980s.
“Tu bola….aur mein chala…hahaha…hahahah”
“Jawaab de nahi toh mein tere sar ke hazaar tukde kar dunga”

“Vikram vikram vikram betaal betaal betaal”











Remember Satish Shah (Betaal) clinging on Arun Govil's back telling him a story and asking questions at the end.

One of Ramanand Sagar’s best flicks well known for his ever popular Ramayan. The series was about a righteous king ,Vikram who goes in search of a ghost, Betal. Each time he succeeds in trapping him but has to listen to a story on his way back. There is also an impending condition set by Betal that he would accompany Vikram as long as he kept his vow of silence, never uttering a word. These were simple stories which contained a moral, and a question at the end posed by Betal to Vikram. Betal also warned the king that if he knew the answer and failed to answer it, he (Betal) would have his head. The cunning Betal knew that the king was too clever not to know the answer, and each time Vikram fell for the trap followed by the inevitable ...tu bola aur main chala...voooooo.

kunal said...

those were the days.. i guess watching tv was much more fun than so called trillion channels with no good shows...

Anonymous said...

the betaal was not satish shah..he was aguy called sajjan...

Anonymous said...

i dont get something about this serial..like it never ends..what is the point of catching Betaal if Vikram would always talk, making the actual plot of the story completely senseless especially with the Guru from the beginning of the serial that was asking for Betaal to be caught

Praveen Kumar said...

Is there any place to watch it? Is DVD/VCD available anywhere? thanks guys.

Dr.Nammi Srinivas said...

Jeevan Rekha (LIfe LIne) . This was probably one of the best serials ever made in India.I was so inspired by this that I wanted to become a doctor and today I am proudly one. But miss that generations genuineness and honesty. The music for this serial was by Vanraj Bhatia. Absolutely melodious and inspiring. Can anybody please please tell me where could i get the title music of ....life line/jeevan rekha or the entire episodes in DVD ????
