If you’re studying this then you’re no stranger to the world of Netflix’s Indian Matchmaking and like many others across the globe, you’ve gotten been ready for Sima Taparia’s new adventures. And this time too, ‘Sima Aunty’ doesn’t disappoint. It could be reductive to name this present a ‘guilty pleasure’ because it casually glorifies poisonous practices that Indians have been conditioned to observe for many years, even centuries. And judging by the primary two episodes, Sima Taparia and her shoppers are nonetheless on the identical path the place folks itemizing out what they need from a potential partner is seen as ‘demanding’ and trivial particulars like somebody’s peak and age are deal breakers.
There are a number of previous faces from the primary season, and some new entries, who undoubtedly thought that ‘Sima Aunty’ could be the proper matchmaker for them although none of her matches from the primary season really labored out. One of those new faces is a person named Akshay who idolises Elon Musk and calls himself the “world’s most eligible bachelor”. Of course, we all know that these exhibits are closely edited and aren’t a real illustration of 1’s persona however judging by what Netflix selected to point out us of Akshay, he’s a person who calls ladies ‘chicks’ and thinks that the one purpose he’s single is as a result of he lives in Nasik. So far, the editors of the present aren’t actually serving to his case nevertheless it’s too quickly to inform if Akshay has any redeeming qualities.
The present additionally brings again two most cherished contestants from the earlier season – Nadia and Aparna. Nadia’s breakdown within the first season after she was ghosted was an emotional expertise, even for actuality present haters. So watching her soar this time round simply makes you smile. There’s a brand new boy in her life however ‘Sima Aunty’ doesn’t approve as a result of he’s seven years youthful than her. For ‘Sima Aunty’, Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas are additionally not a superb match as a result of she seems “older”. I imply can somebody inform her that there’s extra to relationships than simply being in the identical age bracket?
Aparna, the girl from Houston who was thought-about bossy and demanding by Sima Taparia within the first season, is again too. Aparna was portrayed because the ‘difficult woman’ who’s anticipating an excessive amount of out of a relationship and isn’t able to accept much less. This time round, Aparna has damaged up with ‘Sima Aunty’ and has discovered a Korean-American astrologer dwelling in Hyderabad who’s guiding her by means of her potential love story with a person she hasn’t even met but. Aparna needs to be in love, and to seek out that love she has moved to New York City. She is an optimistic one who needs love, however isn’t able to let go of her individuality and we’re hoping that the present doesn’t disgrace her for it, because it did within the final season.
The first season of Indian Matchmaking launched quickly after the lockdown hit in 2020 and when all the world was starved for content material, the present turned the cringe watch that we couldn’t cease speaking about. The second season follows the identical path of pretending that these orthodox practices are someway part of ‘Indian culture’ and whereas we do stay in a world the place that is our actuality, Indian Matchmaking ought to be consumed with a pinch of salt.
