 Pellam Oorelithe

This series from the banner of Tamada Media revolves around a husband who desperately needs space. Witness the fun banter between a husband and his wife about married life.

With hilarious internal monologues, funny anecdotes, and some great acting by Santosh Chintalapudi and Sushma Gopal, Pellam Oorelithe is packed with entertainment.

Exclusive Interviews

Also from the house of Tamada Media, this thought-provoking show pitches booksmart against streetsmart. Every Indian kid is familiar with the pressure of performing well in school, so much so that we forget to be kids sometimes. While most defy these restrictions, some kids grow into the same pressure through college and forget to live. Exclusive Interviews tells the story of two such friends, one who has done everything right in his life, and the other who chooses what to do right in a strategic manner. When these two attend the same job interview together, things go very differently from what one would expect.

1st Salary

That’s what happens with the protagonist of 1st Salary. After scoring a job at 25, he makes a variety of plans as to how he will spend his first paycheck. Everybody in his life also has certain demands- while his mother would like him to donate it to a temple and his father expects him to take up some responsibility at home, his friends expect a celebration! And before he can decide for himself, all his money is gone. Watch this fun series that accurately depicts one’s transition into true adulthood.

Coolie No.1

With all the elements of a quintessential masala flick, Coolie №1 is a great watch, makes you laugh and keeps you on the edge of your seat in a good way!

Kanjoos Mother

Every Indian kid is familiar with the lesson in conservative spending that parents usually tend to preach. “Spend less”, “save”, are terms they know well.

30+ Unmarried

The perils of an Indian woman who’s over 30 and unmarried can only be imagined by most of us. 30+ Unmarried depicts just that in a fun, comedic manner. While she paid no mind to getting married in her 20’s, she’s more open to the idea at 30. However people around her seem to think it’s “too late” now.
