Nadaniyaan is an Indian television series based on comedy. This television show had been airing on the channel Big Magic for about three seasons so far.

Another version of this serial:
Away from the prevalent ‘saas-bahu’ drama themes that have been taking Indian television by a storm for the past few years, the people at Reliance broadcast network have decided to treat the audience with a comedy set up which will be rolling with the name of ‘Total Naadaniyan’. This show is the immediate successor of an already loved series- ‘Uff! Ye Nadaniyaan’. This out of the box story revolves around a family based in a town of Punjab, with the head being Ms Tarawanti, the epitome of an ideal ‘Bhartiya maa’. She has two sons, with the elder one’s name being Nandu and the younger one going by the name Pappu. There is an actor, and the series also introduces to the audience a couple where the husband handles a business related to teleshopping, and the wife, known as Jassi, is a simple and sweet hearted woman hailing from Canada.
Jassi’s twin brother, who quirkily shares her name, is also involved in the story gradually. However, keeping them all at bay, the show’s biggest attraction is a pug! (This breed of dogs has indeed won a million hearts, thanks to the Vodafone advertisements and well, now this TV series!) The Pug is called Pug Ghungroo. A unique feature that this dog brings with him is his ability to talk! However, there is a twist.
