Since the premiere of the first season of "Indian Matchmaking" in the year 2020, when people had nothing better to do due to the protracted lockdown, it has become a phenomenon. Whether it was on television or an OTT service, we all watched the broadcast just like any other dating program. The main variation in this instance is that the program only deals with the arranged marriage scenario, which is common among Indians both in India and among those who live overseas. Everything revolved around Seema Taparia, the most renowned matchmaker in the country, and her advocacy for arranged weddings, which aided in the growth of her matching business.
The individuals who have been on this program have allowed their hearts and brains to be open to truly finding love. Each person has a unique background and set of standards for the qualities they look for in a potential spouse.
In seasons one and two, Seema Taparia alternated between working with clients in India and the United States to find the ideal match or at the very least to begin the dating process. In season three, Seema Taparia moves her clientele's base to London and assists them in finding a partner who meets the criteria they have specified and who they want to settle down with. We are introduced to Priya, a Gujarati clinical chemist with roots in London who is looking for a new spouse. She goes on two dates with the individuals Seema arranges. She finally moves on to the third person, Vimal, after feeling nothing or having no connection with the prior two. If Vimal ends up being the appropriate match for Priya, it will be intriguing to find out. Bobby, a mathematician from Stratford, found it challenging to find a match since he views himself as a high-energy individual. He is a sociable man who has been friends with the majority of the women he has dated in the past, but sadly, he never meets anyone who would be a good match for him.
A Californian emergency room physician named Vikash also has a catch; he is approaching middle age and wants to get married and start a family. He rejects a few of the matches Seema sends him because he is renowned for being picky and has a certain checklist, but he ends up preferring Janaki. The only snag for him is that she is ten years his junior. He has an uneasy feeling about it, but he and Janaki click, and they want to pursue it together. Arti, a Sindhi woman who works in compliance for a cybersecurity company, is searching for a partner while she is in Miami. Although Arti does have her own set of preferences for a spouse, much like other clients. She meets director Tushar Tyagi thanks to Seema; the two first have a rough time connecting, but they eventually do end up rejecting every match Seema has made for her. Though Seema's dismissal of Arti's needs did annoy her just a little, Arti ultimately decided to follow her path after that. Seema has been tasked with matching Miss India finalist Rushali with a decent man back in New Delhi, India. Rushali is unable to compromise because of her limitations. Rushali steps back and begins to think about what she wants from life in general after having a long conversation with her parents, friends, and a life coach about what she wants specifically from herself and what she is seeking in a companion. Pavneet works as a PR and marketing specialist in the same location. She is eager to find a mate through Seema even though she is thought to be too old to be married. She wants to meet someone who will value her as the wandering, fiercely independent woman that she is.
Those who have had difficulty dating may find it cathartic to watch this show. This reality dating show stands out because everyone is so open about their desires. They don't hesitate to share their minds, and Taparia is this strong but kind voice to lead everyone. Seema Taparia consistently maintains positivity and happiness for her clients, even when there are many hits and misses. The final episode of "Indian Matchmaking" features a potential Youtuber who has his mother make a pitch for him because he's looking for a possible life partner as well. In this season, Seema also discusses how her husband's unwavering support allowed her to pursue her career goals with consistent vigor.
The emphasis placed on why young people of our generation have a difficult time finding a mate is one of the few encouraging signals that can be seen. Although they do want to settle down, they are not prepared to give up much or compromise much for the sake of a simple marriage, unlike their elders. These young people have the option of choosing who they wish to hang out with. The eight episodes have all reflected that in a positive light. At the beginning of each episode, there are interviews with married couples in which the husband and wife discuss their long-term union and how precisely they met. Even if they come from a generation where the regulations were different, it gives a good image of how marriage worked for them in exactly the correct way. However, one client's emphasis on the partner's desire to adhere to Indian culture and speak Hindi, the native tongue, comes off as hypocritical. In a way, a man or woman who was born and raised in America and who is fluent in English cannot expect their partner to have some remarkable talent. It exudes a small-mindedness.
Although acknowledged, "Indian Matchmaking" invited founders of rival community-based dating apps and their competitors to speak with Seema in-depth about the current trends among young people who are of marriageable age. This really makes Seema look good for being willing to make room for others who are just starting out and attempting to break into the matchmaking industry, especially in their own small, exclusive network. But once more, because they don't want to interact with people outside of their community, this limited community-based matchmaking also contributes to a form of ghettoization. The show's conclusion, however, with Seema repeatedly mentioning how she had no support at all when she started her business—apart from her husband—allows young women to learn that it is quite acceptable to be ambitious and not let anyone stop them from following their aspirations.
