A Short Review On Mismatched A Netflix series
Netflix Original “Mismatched” is a series directed by Akarsh Khurana and Nipun Dharmadhikari which was released on 20th November, 2020. Based on Sandhya Menon’s New York Times bestseller book, “When Dimple Met Rishi”, the show immediately took our hearts away with its trailer release and kept fans desperately waiting for the launch. The wait was absolutely worth as the show didn’t fail to surprise us in every possible way. Standing on its reputation of a classic teen Rom-Com, “Mismatched” not only makes us crave for the 60’s romance but is also a complete package of romance, friendship, love and competition.
Based on the journey of two completely opposite personalities, Dimple (the over-ambitious, hard working, middle class girl) and Rishi (the hopelessly romantic old school guy), the show is just like a warm blanket of pure love. The story beautifully unveils itself with some of the most iconic moments like the disastrous cold coffee meet, the romantic walk back hostel and many more to account for. Watching Dimple and Rishi is like gazing millions of stars, soothing and heart warming.
But the story is not just a teen love story. It walks us through teen drama as well with various other characters like Harsh, Celina, Namrata, Anmol, Siddharth, Zeenat, Simran and Krish. All these characters are so beautifully real and they have their own journey where each one of them fights with their own share of insecurities like social acceptance, detachment, financial insecurities, career ambitions etc.
Hence, “Mismatched” is the perfect light hearted watch which not only appeals to audience’s expectation of a modern-day love story but also surprises us with its unexpected ending which just blows your mind and makes us impatiently wait for Season 2.
