Sarabhai VS Sarabhai, the iconic show from 2004 about the Sarabhai couple, their two sons and a daughter-in-law is still relevant. With the iconic punchlines and hilarious characters, we can’t stop watching the reruns of this show. Our favourite is undoubtedly Maya Sarabhai, played by Ratna Pathak, the sass queen of our childhood. She didn’t miss a single opportunity to roast her beloved bahu, Monisha Sarabhai.
Here is a list of our favourite dialogues by the ‘ideal’ mother-in-law, who loved Monisha enough to call her out on almost everything! Oh and, “Don’t mind beta, main tumhari burai nahi kar rahi hoon, I was just joking.”
1. “Kisi carpentry mein fail hui mistry ki banayi hui cheez ko antique kehna matlab Monisha ko sophisticated kehne barabaar hai.”
2. “Monisha, tetrapack dene wale ko ‘bhaiya thoda aur doodh do na’ kehti hai.”
3. “Monisha toh supermarket jaa ke bhi free dhaniya mangti hai.”
4. “Monisha, say raise a toast,’cheers karein’ is so Hindi film party scene.”
5. “Monisha Beta, yeh haila toh theek tha, but this haichi is categorically middle-class.”
6. “Monisha toh geeli baniyaane bhi microwave mein sukhati hain.”
7. “Congratulations Monisha! Champagne khole ya jaljeera se kaam chalega?”
8. “Monisha ke standards are going to the dogs, that too stray dogs.”
9. “Indravadan ka pyaar Monisha ke pardo jaisa hai. Faded!”
10. “Monisha ki machli toh haath se daala hua paneer bhi kha legi. This fish has no self respect.”
11. “TV actors ke saath photo khichvana is just the epitome of middle class.”
12. “Monisha, bargaining with mall vendors is categorically middle class.”
13. “Monisha toh juice waale se muft mei santre ke chhilke uthati hai, marmalade banane ke liye.”
14. “Monisha toh falooda peetey samay straw se ‘sarr sarr’ awaaaz kar ke poora khatam hone tak peeti hai. How terribly middle class!”
