Nadaniyaan is a Hindi adaptation of the popular Pakistani sitcom, which goes by the same name. It stars some of the best humorists known to the Indian TV and film landscape including Upasana Singh, Iqbal Azad, Alok Nath, Samiksha Bhatt, Baldev Trehan, and Gunn Kansara.
The show revolves around a family who lives in New Delhi. They are terrified in anticipation of the arrival of the controlling matriarch of the family, Taravanti Verma (Upasana Singh). She is a doting mother to Nandu and a loving grandmother of Chintu and Pintu. As for her second son Pappu and daughter-in-law Chandu (Chandini Verma), life is not as rosy as Taravanti criticizes them always. Every character has its little quirks, even their late Babuji’s (Alok Nath) portrait on the wall, which leaves the viewer with a hearty laugh.
