Season 2 of ‘Made In Heaven’ takes us into the world of big weddings, things that make us feel uneasy but are true, and a lot of exciting emotions.
This season is a bit complicated, but it’s interesting and perfect for watching a lot at once. It talks about important ideas and keeps us interested in the main story.
After waiting for four years, ‘Made In Heaven’ has come back with Season 2. Just like before, it’s all about big weddings, uncomfortable truths, and lots of drama. But is this season as good as the first one? Let’s take a closer look!
First, there’s a quick 5-minute reminder of what happened in the first season. Then, Season 2 of ‘Made in Heaven’ continues with Tara (played by Shobita Dhulipala) and Karan (played by Arjun Mathur) facing some troubles in their business.
They’re not doing so well, and they’re worried. To try and fix things, they bring in Ramesh (played by Vijay Raaz) as a ‘co-partner’ and Bulbul (played by Mona Singh) as an auditor. They want to keep their business going strong.
Tara, Karan, Kabir, and Jazz are working really hard to make sure their clients have the best weddings. But it’s not easy at all. Tara is going through a tough time because of her divorce and problems with ‘Made In Heaven.’ Karan is also dealing with personal troubles. Despite all this, they’re not giving up on finding love.
There are seven episodes in this season. Each one tells a different wedding story. These stories show different ways things can turn out, sometimes happy and sometimes not so happy.
They also talk about difficult things that might make you feel uncomfortable, like racism, unfair treatment of the Dalit community, cheating, having more than one spouse, and same-sex weddings.
The creators of the show, Zoya Akhtar and Reema Kagti, along with the directors Nitya Mehra, Neeraj Ghaywan, and Alankrita Srivastava, did a great job putting these stories together without making it too much for the viewers.
It might make you feel uneasy sometimes, but they stay focused on the main idea.
At times, the show starts to sound like it’s giving a lecture, and that can make you lose interest for a little while.
The ideas behind it are new and interesting, but Zoya and Reema usually share their messages in a more subtle way instead of being too direct.
This season introduces two interesting characters. One is Bulbul (played by Mona), who is married to Ramesh (played by Vijay Raaz), and the other is Meher (played by Trinetra Haldar), who is a transwoman.
Kalki Koechlin is also back as Faiza Naqvi. There are also appearances by other actors like Mrunal Thakur, Samir Soni, Neelam, Pulkit Samrat, Dia Mirza, and Radhika Apte, and they all bring something special to the show.
The episode with Samir Soni, Sanjay Kapoor, and Neelam is particularly memorable.
There’s also a big Bollywood-style wedding happening in the French Riviera (sounds a bit like DeepVeer, right?). The show has really gone big in terms of scale. The story is interesting and easy to follow.
But the writers deserve a lot of credit for weaving so many different topics into the story alongside the main narratives of the characters. It’s complex and gripping. Definitely a show you can watch a lot of at once!
