#AMAZONPRIME: It’s the dream-team of Zoya Akhtar (Gully Boy), Nitya Mehra (Baar Baar Dekho), Alankrita Shrivastava (Lipstick Under My Burkha) and Prashant Nair (Delhi In A Day) have come together to form the edgiest web-series on the block.
Made in Heaven, an amazon Prime Original starring Arjun Mathur, Sobhita Dhulipala, Jim Sarbh, Kalki Koechlin, Shashank Arora and Shivani Raghuvanshi, is the story of two wedding planners promising couples their ‘happy ever after’, while also displaying what seems to be the ugly truth of the complexities around relationships.
But while they try and deliver the perfect wedding for couples, they are grappling with their own personal problems. Tara, who seems to be uber practical and composed all the time, suspects her husband of infidelity. Karan, has not come out of the closet yet and is dealing with his boyfriend – who is planning to get married.
Through them, and the other characters that they are dealing with amid the backscore of shaadi season and the many expectations and disappointments that come with it, Made in Heaven seems to be an apt, ironic portrayal of the Desi wedding market – and is set to release tentatively on 8 March on Amazon Prime Video.
After the success of Prime original series such as Mirzapur and Four More Shots Please!, more and more filmmakers are taking to the digital medium.
Coming from the successful director-writer duo, Zoya Akhtar and Reema Kagti, the expectations are high from this web series. Given that Big fat Indian weddings can generate storylines that run wide, Made In Heaven seems like the perfect pick to draw more audiences to the digital medium.
