Aaj Robibar (Bengali: আজ রবিবার; Today's Sunday) is a Bangladeshi television sitcom, created by Humayun Ahmed, which originally aired on BTV in 1999. It is due to re-air in Hindi on Indian television channel, Star Plus. The series is known for popularizing the Bengali song "Jole Bhasha Poddo Aami" as well as reintroducing Hason Raja songs to a younger demographic.
The plot revolves around the day-to-day life of an eccentric household consisting of a man only called Dadajan ("grandpa"), his socially in-adept sons, two granddaughters, a boarder, the manservant and the maid. From the eldest son, who never got married and loves playing chess with himself, to the manservant who tries to peek through the keyhole of the former's room and gets caught and squirted with ink every time, everyone contributes to make it one comic madhouse.
A drama about the daily comic incidents taking place in a Dhaka household, the series' opening episode begins with Konka, the younger granddaughter who breaks the fourth wall to introduce characters and premises to the audience. She and her elder sister Titli are fun-loving girls, both secretly in love with the boarder Anis, a nerd who doesn't seem to understand social stuff. Their father Jamil, the middle son and an architect by profession, is fond of Hason Raja songs and after losing his wife around the time when Konka was born, falls in love with an attractive, mature and intelligent woman named Meera, whom he hires as a governess. The eldest son, Asgor is an eminent psychiatrist and is obsessed with his own imaginations about events and personalities while the youngest son is mentally ill and has a non-speaking role. The manservant Moti, who prefers the term caretaker instead of servant and the maid Fuli seem to spend most of their time romancing when they aren't busy with their antics.
