Hum Log (English: We People) was Indian television's first soap opera.[citation needed] It began telecast on Doordarshan, India's national network on July 7, 1984, then the only television channel of India. It is the story of an Indian middle-class family of the 1980s and their daily struggles and aspirations.[1][2][3]

The idea of the TV series came to then Information and Broadcasting Minister, Vasant Sathe, after a Mexican trip in 1982, and soon the idea for Hum Log was developed in collaboration with writer Manohar Shyam Joshi, who scripted the series, and filmmaker, P. Kumar Vasudev, who went on direct the series.[4] The title score was composed by music director Anil Biswas.[5]

156 episodes of Hum Log were broadcast. The episodes were for thirty minute timeslots, with the final episode being for an hour timeslot.

At the end of every episode, Hindi film actor Ashok Kumar discussed the ongoing story and situations with the audience using Hindi couplets and limericks. In later episodes, introduced the actors who played various characters in the serial and end his monologue with the various Indian language versions of the words "Hum Log."

Cast and characters[edit]

Retelecast and remaking[edit]

In early 2000, Sony TV bought the tapes from Doordarshan and re-telecast the 154 episode story in 52 episodes.
