A Netflix Series review of Mismatched, TV Series
On 20th November 2020, a series adaptation of Sandhya Menon’s highly acclaimed novel When Dimple Met Rishi, was released on Netflix, called Mismatched. To the extreme disappointment of my friend, I am yet to read the book, but guess what? Going along with the hype, I watched Mismatched and believe me, I HAVE NO REGRETS!
It is a YA rom-com, with Prajakta Koli as Dimple and Rohit Saraf as Rishi in lead. The show is just 6 episodes long. If you are a binge-watcher, then you can finish it in around 3 hours. It took me three days (I know, you don’t have to tell me; I am slower than a snail.)
Dimple is an introverted gamer and wannabe app-maker who doesn’t care about her looks and all those petty things. 10 minutes in the show and I was in love with her character already; she was so relatable. She is just 18 and her mother is already on a search for a possible groom. And marriage is the last thing on Dimple’s to-do list. Rishi is your cute and typical old-school, Bollywood-loving guy who wants to marry early just like his grandparents.
Rishi takes up the same app-making course at a college in Jaipur as Dimple (HOW ROMANTIC!!!) But obviously, she doesn’t think that. Calling him a creep and giving him a coffee-splash on their first meeting, Dimple makes her point clear. She is there just for the course and nothing else.
But the show is not just a love-story. There’s so much else. What I loved most was how each episode was dedicated to a different character. We have an LGBTQ+ character called Namrata, Rishi’s best friend. There’s Zeenat, a widow of 40, who doesn’t know a thing about coding and struggles with the new trend of talking in abbreviations. There’s Anmol, a popular game-streamer and Dimple’s rival, who got impaired in a car accident. What I mean is, all the characters are like colors of a rainbow, each different in their own. Every one played his/her part extremely well.
