Today, on Halloween, what's better than getting scared and nostalgic at the same time? On this day, let's take a trip down memory lane and rewatch our favourite horror show, 'Aahat.' 'Aahat' is an Indian horror thriller TV show that aired on Sony Entertainment Television from October 5, 1995. The show is renowned for its intriguing episodes, addressing various paranormal activities and focusing on eerie and spine-chilling stories in each season. It seamlessly combines elements of horror, suspense, and the supernatural to create a gripping viewing experience. The series spans six seasons and started as a suspense thriller.


The name of the show still sends shivers down the spines of us '90s kids. When asked about our favourite horror series, we still recall 'Aahat.' This series holds a special place in our hearts, as it was not just a show but an emotion. It gave us a reason to boast that we watched it and were not afraid of ghosts. It made us believe that a dupatta could fly in the sky because it was possessed, and a headless body could walk and kill someone. It convinced us that a ghost could pull your heart out of your body.


Initially, the first season of the show aired on Thursday nights before moving to Friday nights. After approximately 40 episodes with a similar theme, one episode with a supernatural theme was produced. When viewership for this episode surged, the series made the switch to a supernatural format. Due to its immense popularity, the show returned with another season following the same format.


The show's narratives encompass a wide range of paranormal phenomena, including ghosts, spirits, haunted houses, curses, and more. 'Aahat' is acclaimed for its storytelling, intense performances, and clever plot twists, consistently keeping viewers on the edge of their seats.
