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.

    hey! To all!!

    Just finished watching the last episode of S2 Mismatched.
    I’m sorry to say, but i was kinda bumped after the first season and such a suspenseful and disappointing ending but Oh My GoD!!

    The second season is full of I don’t know exactly what because it is a new concept or character that hits you every time.
    Sometimes you will fall in love with them, the other times you’re angry at Anmol. Well mostly yes he deserves it(only in the beginning, at the end we all fell for Ahsaas and their chemistry).

    But I really didn’t expect it to be that good until I watched it. And i know most people think it’s only because of the cute guy that we ought to watch it in the first place. But guess what, the only reason I watched the first season was because I got to know Prajakta was playing in it the lead.

    And of course, Rishi was our cherry on the top. But really guys, I’m not being feminist here or anything or maybe I am but she is the Show’s topper most of the times.
    She has to do this for her for her dreams. I mean she was chasing her dream since she was eight.
    You know I’m 22 and still don’t have a dream. People are not lucky, they work hard. and not just work hard randomly for anything. They work hard because that’s what they believe in, that is what defines them. Their passion, commitment their aggression towards their dream.

    Isn’t that something that makes us human. To be alive and shining.

    I know mere lines kaafi filmy, motivational quotes type sound karenge.
    But I really admire people who have dreams. and people who have the guts/love to accept those dreams. Who fight for their dreams.
    They are living. hum toh bass survive krr rhe hai ….iss zaalim duniya me.

    ohhh got a new distraction……..writing…love it for now …..
