The simpler times. The easier life? Maybe not always. But Malgudi Days does bring back memories of when I was a kid. All I had to worry about was homework and whether I’ll get to bat that evening. Which is perhaps why watching the show even today brings back sweet memories of a time that seems to have been lost.
It is also interesting to note the ‘arty’ nature of the show. It was perhaps the way ‘artistically inclined’ producers and directors wanted to show it, but it sure beats the heck out of the garish nonsense that is on TV these days.
Whatever said, Malgudi Days continues to enthrall and entertain. Saturday mornings for two hours on 9X.
