Just a thought: Today's Jr.Artists aspiring to Stardom may want to engrave this kind of performance in their mind to be a good actor.
In my opinion, today we'll never find this kind of Art not just because of the different generation or Time but 'cause of the simplicity and the natural performance these Actors delivered. What I mean to say is that its difficult to find such passion with serenity and its the reason that makes me wanna say they are, the REAL ACTORS. Look at their performance, what you're gonna find is the amazing chemistry between each roles, story and most importantly the act which are main ingredients of a Delicious performance. The integration of their body, Language, mind and soul is marvelous. Absolutely there is no commercialism or acting in this old series its like its all happening right in-front of you. Feels really live. Wow! "Old is really Gold".
Every single episode in the end, Ashok kumar gave his reviews and a summary which in a way was very helpful to the viewers and this part was quite unusual for a sitcom which made this particular show distinct from others. He pointed out the issues that everyone faced in the family, their struggles and how some of them took a stand for themselves and for those who didn't do anything about it, let themselves get grilled by the other family members who were somewhat little better-off. Hum log was about the 80s quintessential middle-class Indian joint family and their hardship to tackle the issues living in the hard economy was all very well depicted in the show.
