Amazon Prime's web series Made in Heaven is making a lot of headlines these days. Made in Heaven has become very popular among the audience. Users are not only watching it themselves but are also recommending it to other people. 

Made in Heaven, directed by Zoya Akhtar, stars Shobhita Dhulipala and Arjun Mathur in lead roles. So let's know what is so special about this web series that it should be seen.

Relationship Story

Although Made In Heaven does not follow any single line but it would be fair to say that Made In Heaven is a story of relationships. This is such a web series in which many stories are intertwined. 

Made In Heaven is the name of an event management company that organizes weddings and charges a fee to take full responsibility for it. The series where each member of the team of Made in Heaven narrates a different story, but also tells a different story of the weddings they perform.

The Script is Different

Made in Heaven is a completely different script. No such webseries has come on Netflix, Hotstar and Voot so far. While most of the service providers are currently working on crime, thriller and sex based web series, this web series of Amazon tells a different story of deceit, deceit and jealousy in relationships. If we consider the script in one line, then it can be said that one gets the fruits of his deeds.

LGBT Community-

A lead character of the web series, whose name is Karan (Arjun Mathur), is actually gay. The web series narrates the story of the time when changes were not made in Section 377 and it was a crime to have homosexual relationships. The series tells how the people of the LGBT community had to go through disdain and suffering at that time.

Zoya Akhtar's Direction-

Zoya, who has directed films like Gully Boy, Lust Stories, Dil Dhadakne Do, Talaash and Bombay Talkies, has directed this web series. Zoya's work is seen in every episode of the series. The way he has paid attention to every detail and narrated the story of the characters is commendable in itself.

Sobhita-Arjun's Acting

Sobhita Dhulipala and Arjun Mathur are in the lead role in the lead web series. Arjun came into the limelight by playing the character of Rahul Gandhi in Anupam Kher's film "The Accidental Prime Minister", released in early 2019. Now his character in Made in Heaven is being discussed fiercely. Arjun has given many intimate scenes in the difficult role of gay character. At the same time, Shobhita has worked in many films before this.

Only Name Big

Overall, an attempt has also been made in the film to show that the big royals and families are not as they seem to the common man. There are many such things behind the scenes which are not visible and which are changed with great cleanliness. The response to the web series is very good and it can be assumed that this web series has been a hit.

Weddings have a different look in India. Different from all over the world. Unique. It has become an industry worth lakhs of crores. And from 'Monsoon Wedding' to 'Hum Aapke Hain Koun', different genres of indigenous and foreign audio visual content have been successful by working on the theme of this concept. And the new platform 'Online Streaming' was also not untouched by it. First 'Bang Baaja Baaraat' and now - 'Made in Heaven'. Its name gives you a hint of its story.

This story begins with Karan Mehra (Arjun Mathur) and Tara Khanna (Sobhita Dhulipala). Together they run a wedding planning company. The dream is to go a long way. But as they go ahead they come to know that the business of wedding planning is not just about making wedding arrangements. 

Rather, it is also the name of crisis management and morality crisis. All clients are found with whom there is something morally corrupt. Rich clients also have disgusting truths. Now the question is whether Tara and Karan compromise their principles for the sake of business or stand up in front of the wrong. Strictly speaking, questions related to morality keep coming in front of both these and the audience.

Talking about Tara, she is married. Married to famous wealthy Adil Khanna (Jim Sarbh). The paradox of her life is that she grew up in a lower-middle-class family. In so many deprivations that the mother did the grooming for this day so that she could marry a nobleman and get out of this 'dirt'. Tara has always looked at her past unacceptably and is moving on. But there is no more happiness. There the situation is even worse.

She shares her turmoil with her friend Faiza Naqvi (Kalki Kekalan). Faiza is also an important character of the series. But such a shocking thing about him, later Tara comes to know that their relationship is almost over.

Karan too has his problems. One, there is a lot of debt on the head, to pay it off, he has to do wedding planning work continuously. Second, he is gay, due to which everyone from his childhood schoolmates to the landlord (Vinay Pathak) now becomes a source of trouble for him. The relationship with father and mother in the house also takes different forms due to this truth.

Some of the main characters of the story are also companions of Tara and Karan's company 'Made in Heaven'. One of them is Jaspreet (Shivani Raghuvanshi), who comes from a lower-middle-class home in Delhi. Who is the only earner in the house. Young brother is addicted to drugs. 

The second is the company's official photographer, Kabir (Shashank Arora), who sometimes becomes the narrator in the stories. The third one is Shibani Bagchi (Natasha Singh) who is the star performer of the company but (hence) she is not happy with her salary, she has to fulfill her daughter's expensive dreams. 

Shibani also keeps asking Karan for a salary hike. Since Shibani is a star performer, the rival company of 'Made in Heaven' always wants to bring her in their side.

All these wedding planners are seen tackling a new wedding and a new event in 9 episodes.

After the idea of ​​the story is done, now if we talk about the review, then I would say that this series is very long, so a lot of references and a lot of positive - negative things can come out in it. Everyone's observation can be quite correct even though it is very different. For convenience, here I tell you 10 things that I have observed.

# 1 - In this series made in the backdrop of Delhi, there is no Old Delhi with 'Delhi Six'. It is not Delhi that Gulzar talks about in his song 'Kajrare-Kajrare'. This is Delhi South Delhi. posh. Upper class. But still you get to see less Delhi and more Delhiites in this. That is, even if some other city had been taken instead of Delhi, there would have been no difference in saying.

No. This is not a good or bad thing, but personally I would have felt a connection if I had got to see more of Delhi and its locations, its references, its lifestyle. Like Delhi in 'Titli', Mumbai in 'Mumbai Meri Jaan' and Kolkata in 'Kahaani' was in its brightest colors.

#2 - When we start judging the characters of a creative work in this way, we start forming opinions about them (whether they are good or bad) then it reflects the success of that work. It is just like this that while discussing about Game of Thrones, instead of discussing the acting, editing, storyline, we start discussing the map of Winterfell and Kingsguard.

#3 – We have heard about ‘grey’ shades and layered characters many times in the past. This 'adulteration' of the characters is seen in some of its most 'pure' forms in this series. For example, take the character of Shibani Bagchi. When we see him sparring and fighting for a salary increase in front of his boss, we start judging him. 

But then knowing his complete truth, we find his struggle for salary justified. Be it Tara who looks like a rude or a psychotic character of Faiza Naqvi. Everyone on their own level seems to be just as sly as one is in real life.

Jaspreet Kaur is from poor or middle class family. Small dreams. When she goes to fulfill one of those small dreams, she falls on her head. (This role is played by Shivani Raghuvanshi)

Jaspreet Kaur (Shivani Raghuvanshi) hails from a lower-middle-class family. Small dreams. When she goes to fulfill one of those small dreams, she falls on her head.

#4 – The entire series is very modest in its treatment, considering that you will not get the same conceit of 'vastness' as you got while watching 'Sacred Games' or 'Mirzapur'. While big names like Zoya Akhtar, Rasika Duggal, Kalki, Neena Gupta, Vijay Raj, Vinay Pathak and Deepti Naval are also associated with this series. Now take the guess that Kalki's character Faiza Naqvi is not a lead character even though she is important. 

This is also the account of Vijay Raj and Vinay Pathak. The lead characters are actually not even Arjun and Tara. The lead character is the script. Which is tight despite being spread both in terms of time and spectrum. Makes you curious. Inspires you to look ahead.

#5 – Most of the characters in the series represent the upper class, so a common man like me does not feel completely connected to their mannerisms, their joys, their troubles. The director has also seen some lower class characters through binoculars. 

All that has been used to show their poverty, which has now become tainted. Like Jaspreet Kaur's character who gets down in front of a big apartment in a car to show her cousin and not her ordinary house.

Traditional version of upper class. But there is no problem if the daughter-in-law should work in the Indian Air Force with such an open mind. But a great duplicity has spread.

The traditional version of the upper class is Yeh Family. But they are so open-minded that there is no problem if the daughter-in-law works in the Air Force. Rather feel good. But the shock comes when the immoral face of this officer working in the Air Force and this Royal Family comes to the fore.

#6 – There are many other things, concepts and places where the audience finds a mediator and a ‘stuffed’ condiment. There are many new and shocking things to happen but all these shocks, all these innovations are at the level of the scene and not at the level of the overall concept. 

In many places things have been used like a template, which can be called safe play. Like homosexuality. Due to the huge running time of the series, experimenting or doing something new in every moment would not only be a mammoth job but also the audience could not connect with it.

[I think the same is true in the case of usage as it is in the case of language. That is, in order to explain a new word, it is necessary to have familiar words around it, in the same way, for a couple of creative things to be acceptable to the audience, it is necessary to have a lot of cliches around it.]

#7 - The best thing about 'Made in Heaven' is that it exposes the duality of our society and goes ahead without answering those doubleness with great cruelty. For example, a family from abroad asks the girl's people to marry the girl first to a Peepal tree to eradicate Mangal Dosh. 

Their reason (which actually seems to be an excuse) is that, of course, nothing will happen if you do not do this, but what will be the harm if you do.

#8 – Dowry + Upper Class, Sexual Abuse + Upper Class, Superstition + Upper Class, Honor Killing + Upper Class, Virginity + Upper Class, NRI Marriage + Upper Class – These are the themes of some of the 9 episodes. Somewhere by watching the series, you will feel that these episodes are inspired by real events, and you have seen or heard such cases in real as well. Seeing all this myself, I remembered many high-profile cases.

#9 – There are so many incidents where as a viewer we want answers, solutions, a final culmination, but the series makes no such effort. For example, we can talk about a girl who has been molested but accepts to remain silent due to money. And sadly, you get his stand as well.

Another example - the lead character who is gay, when he gets stuck in childhood, makes his friend a scapegoat in his place. And we feel pity for the friend but don't get angry on the lead (Karan Mehra).

Among the many problems of Karan, the name of another big problem is Johri. From which Karan has taken a loan. [Vijay Raj has been taken for this role.]

Among the many problems of Karan, the name of a big problem is Johri (Vijay Raj) from whom Karan has taken a loan.

 #10 – When we start watching the series, the concept of ‘boy + girl + wedding planner company’ reminds us of ‘Band Baaja Baaraat’. But one episode, rather than a few minutes, it is revealed that this series is not 'another version' of 'Band Baaja Baaraat' anywhere from treatment to concept level.

Vinay Pathak has become Karan's landlord in this. His character's name is Ramesh Gupta. His character bold italics and underlines the duality of our society.

Karan's landlord Ramesh Gupta (Vinay Pathak) who bold, italicizes and underlines the duality of our society.

#11 – Lastly, without spoilers, the climax of 'Made in Heaven' is actually like leaving a burning spark of hope in the cold winter nights of sorrow. And we as a viewer hope that the characters might have lit the fire, the chilly night would pass.
