If you’ve been noticing a lot of great desi content on Netflix for the last little while, you’re not wrong. We love seeing new movies, serials and tv shows popping up every week. When the series Rishta.com showed up on Netflix, we decided to give it a watch and here is what we thought.
Rishta.com is an Indian television series that ran in 2010. It was produced by Aditya Chopra under YRF Production. It released on Canada Netflix in April and is available for world wide audiences to watch.
The show revolves around Isha (Shruti Seth) and Rohan (Kavi Shastri,) business partners at an Indian matrimonial agency. In each episode, they face new challenges and demands for clients as they try to find them the perfect match.
Along the way, you learn more about their personal lives, challenges, friendships and romantic adventures.
Here’s the trailer:
When I first started the series, I didn’t know what to expect. I was happily surprised. Each episode,which is about 40 minutes long shares a new adventure in matchmaking and it was a lot of fun following along. Each story was different and interesting as was each new client who came in to find the right rishta for themselves.
The chemistry and friendship between owners Isha and Rohan also made the Rishta.com even more addictive. In all honesty, it was hard to watch just one episode!
Once thing I would advise you to keep in mind if you are watching this show in North America is, that this is a show based in India for Indian audiences. So there may be some somethings that you might find odd or that you don’t align with, but that is because of the audience it was made for. If you’re able to do that, than I would say that Rishta.com is definitely worth a watch!
The only thing I was disappointed in was that there was no Season 2! But the Season 1 Finale did not disappoint!
