Nukkad Serial received a very good response from the audience. All the serial characters like Khopdi, Kader Bhai and Ghanshu Bhikari were all known by this name. Nukkad was one of those three TV series in the 80's, which was greatly appreciated by the audience. The remaining two series were hum log and Buniyaad.
The first season of Nukkad used to come on Doordarshan between 1986-87, which had 40 episode. Every episode of the lower classes, whose income was low, used to tell about their personal life. Some episodes ended with a new hope and good thinking, while some episode had sad ending.
