Netflix - Indian Matchmaking Season 1

Oscar nominated filmmaker Smriti Mundhra drives the show through Mumbai's top matchmaker Sima Taparia, who is an authority on setting up arranged marriages. Armed with bio-datas, Sima is shown meeting a wide range of NRI families in the US and in Mumbai & Delhi as well. Here, the men and women spell out the criteria for their perspective partners. Sima then dips into her wide database and pulls out suitable profiles for her clients. She offers more options if the first one doesn’t work out. All the while explaining the ‘hows’ and ‘whys’ of her matchmaking process. The show also ventures beyond familial house meetings to the dates between Sima’s matches, which are its biggest highpoints.

Our mandate was to line produce all the India segments. We provided a wide range of production services with an expert team with tons of experience. The India team consisted of two line producers, an associate producer, sound man and a DIT.

The show was met by an amazing response on its release and was an internet sensation from the very first day that it was aired on Netflix.
