Bring­ing back mem­o­ries of the fan­tas­tic ’90s through this show

HT Cafe - - Front Page -

Ask any ’90s kid what grow­ing up in that era was, and they’ll tell you that it was the best time of their lives. Be­sides be­ing a tran­si­tion decade, which saw the ad­vent of the In­ter­net and satel­lite tele­vi­sion in In­dia, it was also a defin­ing era be­cause the ’90s have in­flu­enced pop cul­ture in the coun­try like no other decade has.

This was the time when the an­gry young man of Bol­ly­wood gave way to the choco­late boy im­age on screen — de­fined by Aamir, Shah Rukh, and Sal­man Khan, all of whom con­tinue to rule Bol­ly­wood to this day. At a time when there weren’t many real-life heroes around, a shy, 16-year-old boy, Sachin Ten­dulkar, be­came the sport­ing hope of our na­tion. AR Rah­man rev­o­lu­tionised mu­sic, and his mu­sic tops the charts even to­day. Those high-waist jeans, crop tops and hoop earrings, which were so pop­u­lar back then, have again found their way into the wardrobes of to­day’s youth. It was a truly spe­cial time, the ’90s.

While we can’t go back to that glo­ri­ous time, Sony Entertainment Tele­vi­sion, through its new show, Yeh Un Di­non Ki Baat Hai, brings the ’90s back to In­di­ans. The show, set in that era, is a teenage love story that takes you to a time when friend re­quests were made with slam books, and not on Face­book. Hushed voices ac­com­pa­nied mes­sages writ­ten on chits, and missed calls on land­lines — that was the secret lan­guage.

Premier­ing tonight at 10.30pm on Sony Entertainment Tele­vi­sion, Yeh Un Di­non Ki Baat Hai, is the story of Naina (Ashi Singh) and Sameer (Ran­deep Rai), two teens who ex­pe­ri­ence love for the first time. The story prom­ises to fill hearts with mem­o­ries aplenty. Here’s to those good old days!
