As Netflix released the show Indian Matchmaking, it seemed to have got mixed reviews from audience and critics alike. The series talks around the Indian American couple with Sima Taparia at the helm of affairs as a matchmaker. The show takes an inside look at the customs of the arranged marriage in the US. Of late, the series has become a topic of discussion on the Microblogging site called Twitter. The show has brought the Indian marriages on the streaming giant.
This has allowed audiences of more than 200 countries to catch the show turning big for the Indian marriages. The episodes of the show have highlighted issues like the ideas of colourism, sexism, and casteism to some extent. The series also shows the way the marriages are turned into business propositions. One can even find some unrealistic demands coming from the bride and groom. The showever, however, has dismayed people and they have come on Twitter to vent out their frustration.
Well, you need to check what people has to say on the Microblogging site:
So we not gonna address the constant and blatant colourism in #IndianMatchmaking? Okay, cool. Carry on.

28 minutes into Indian Matchmaking and I am mortified. Full body mortification. Seven-lives worth of mortification. Arranged marriages are embarrassing/shameful to watch in real life, what was the point behind taking it to the reel…

The reason arranged marriage is predominantly a “Desi” thing is because it is rooted in caste. Its not about finding love, it’s about keeping the bloodline “pure” or some other such nonsense. This institution needs to die, not be given a Netflix special. #IndianMatchmaking

Watching Indian Matchmaking on Netflix and the casualness with which people keep repeating the requirement that matches be “fair” is…disconcerting.
