Mrs. and Mr. Sharma Allahabadwale is an Indian television series which was launched by SAB TV. The concept of this show includes a small town middle-class family with their day to day struggles. A total number of one hundred and forty eight episodes have been produced in this series. The story of this series is based on the two characters as mentioned in the title of the show. The backdrop of Allahabad has opted for the place where this small family lives.
The show progresses with the celebration of comic spirit and depicts the life of a small town. As mentioned earlier, the story keenly focuses on the various incidents that an average middle-class family goes through in their day-to-day lives. It portrays the clash of ethics and values between the set mentality of the people belonging to small towns and metropolitan cities. A double standard which is found in big cities, and the widespread corruption, becomes a common point of satire in this show.
The basic comparison here is between the small town of Allahabad and the busiest metro of India Mumbai. Apart from the husband and the wife, there is Dristhdumn Sarveshwar Sharma, who is the head of the family. He is the definition of a simple man. He is content with his family, surroundings, life, and job. Although he is quite harmless, but he too has a very strict set of beliefs and customs that he is governed by.
The wife, in this story is exactly how a small town Indian housewife is. She had never seen the likes of a big city and has the utmost faith in her husband. The story begins where Mr. Sharma receives a promotion in his job, and with the prospect of a better tomorrow, he humbly takes the promotion. The promotion, however, is a transfer of Mr. Sharma from Allahabad to Mumbai. Thus, the comic situation that unfolds when the Sharma family reaches Mumbai forms the base of the storyline of this series.
The role of Mrs. Sharma is played by ‘Divyanka Tripathi’. ‘Rajesh Kumar’ takes up the character of Mr. Sharma. A couple of other characters involved in the story are ‘Raagini Sharma’, who is Mr. Sharma’s unmarried sister and whose role is played by ‘Akriti Singh’. ‘Dilip Kumar Sharma’ enacted the role of Dabboo, who is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Sharma. Some other characters are Sharma’s boss, a plumber, Anna, his wife Dolly, Rajshri Shah (‘Vandana Pathak’), 'Atul Srivastava' and 'Sudha Chandran’.
