No one can deny that romantic comedies are great. But, what about web series or movies that are built around quirky relationships other than romance? So, in case you would like to watch a heart-touching web series about relationships that are different than romance, then you would love our shortlists.
From siblings’ love to friendship to parental love, here’s a list of series that focus on relationships and not just romantic love.
The first on the list is Gullak – a refreshingly hilarious and undoubtedly nostalgic series.

From showcasing sibling love to family bonding, this show is one of the finest Indian web series on relationships. All seasons of Gullak are available on Sony Liv. You can watch them here.
We don’t think any Indian web series have explored sibling love in such an entertaining way. Divorced, jobless, hopeless. Three siblings plan a road trip together. Chandan, Chanchal & Chitvan. What happens on this road trip? Well, they not only find themselves but also how much they love each other – all while making you laugh. You can watch it here.
Adulting is the perfect blend of comedy and drama, reminding you of the pleasures and trials of moving away from home and finding family in your flatmates. You can watch it here.
Starring Jeetendra Kumar, this TVF series won many hearts with its simplicity. A comedy-drama, which captures the journey of an engineering graduate Abhishek, who for lack of a better job option joins as secretary of a Panchayat office in a remote village of Uttar Pradesh. How he finds friends and family among the strangers in the village leaves you touched. You can watch this beautiful series about relationships here.
5. Engineering Girls
Three engineering students deal with dorm drama, date around, and do whatever it takes to make their dreams come true. Exploring the beautiful relationship of friendship, this series is fun to watch. You can watch it here.
Much before web series became a common (or rather, preferred) source of entertainment, Pitchers was the show that had the audience ditching the TV and looking at their laptops. The series is about a bunch of friends setting up their start-up and fighting against life challenges. It was entertaining, relatable, and fast-paced – elements that are crucial to the success of a limited web series.
Home is loosely based on the real-life incident of the demolition of the Kalakruti Society in Mumbai. It offers a fictionalized version of those times through the experience of one family – the Sethis. Starring Annu Kapoor, Supriya Pilgaonkar, Himani Shivpuri, Amol Parashar, and Chetna Pandey, the show explores how emotions show up in times of struggle, and how family members and neighbors come together to fight the world.
8. What The Folks
Next on the list of best Hindi web series is the family comedy – What The Folks. With hilarious instances, emotional scenarios, family bonding moments, ‘What The Folks’ is a journey of modern Indian families breaking stereotypes. What sets the show apart is the topics it takes upon, which are relevant for most married couples (and even single adults) living in India. You can watch it here.
9. Yeh Meri Family
The next web series on the list is Yeh Meri Family – a show full of sweet memories from childhood.

10. Aam Admi Family
Another beautiful show that focuses on a typical middle-class family – notorious children, sweet but controlling parents, and everything in between. The show captures the hopes, disappointments, challenges, and happiness of this middle-class family in a very entertaining way! You can watch it here.
F.A.T.H.E.R.S is a pleasantly refreshing take on the problem of the ‘generation gap’. It presents the story of three retired fathers, who get together and attempt to ‘become cool’ in an effort to connect with their millennial children. It takes a dig at all things millennial and is the kind of comedy you don’t mind revisiting. You can watch it here.
