Of course, she exists in actual life as precisely what’s proven within the sequence as a excessive profile matchmaker Sima Taparia.
Her shoppers too are actual, sieved out of an inventory of 500. Through her we meet a good-looking jewelry designer in Mumbai, an bold lady lawyer in US, a Guyanese Indian origin lady and later within the sequence a divorcee, all on the lookout for love and a life accomplice. The widespread thread is Sima aunty, who frets a bit, as all of us need every little thing.

Real tone & tenor

Often the dialog of the potential bride and groom runs the identical distance, even perpetuates stereotypes, but the present retains you engaged with its actual tone and tenor. What they are saying, how they relate to one another has a hoop of honesty and earnestness. Be it the awkward wanting mama’s boy Akshay or assured in his pores and skin designer Pradyuman who cooks like a professional and rejects ladies by the handfuls, it’s exhausting to detest them.
Even the mom who has no compunction in echoing ‘my house my rules, daughter-in-law has to adjust’ has a sure diploma of familiarity.

Love it or hate it, there is no such thing as a denying it mirrors the fact of matchmaking.
