A charming young relationship
Love is for cool times. The latter part of the year seems to bring an abundance of romantic comedies and enjoyable television shows. The third season of College Romance premieres this week on SonyLiv.
Additionally, Netflix today revealed the premiere date for the second season of its teen romance drama Mismatched. On October 14, the programme with Prajakta Koli and Rohit Saraf in the lead will resume. The two are back as Rishi and Dimple from the first season, a beloved and cherished pair.
The series also features Vihaan Samat, Taaruk Raina, Devyani Shorey, Muskkaan Jaferi, Kritika Bharadwaj, Abhinav Sharma, Rannvijay Singha, Vidya Malavade, Priya Banerjee, Ahsaas Channa and Sanjana Sarathy.
A love equation between opposites
This coming-of-age relationship story is an adaptation of Sandhya Menon’s 2017 novel, ‘When Dimple Met Rishi’. The story centres on an old-school romantic kind of guy falling for a young woman, who is a different kind of person — an ambitious gamer who is not what one would call a typical romantic. This equation between the opposites supplies the story all the warmth, energy and quirks.
Season one ended at an intriguing point with the leading pair having a fallout. Two secrets, one professional and other personal, that they alone were privy too come out in the open. The teaser of the new season takes off from that idea — not being able to keep a secret.
“Since the success of season 1, the series has had many fans asking whether their favourite young couple would find their way back to each other. In a unique teaser, we get to see Dimple and Rishi reunite on screen, only for visible tension to take over. Amidst the arguing, the camera pans out and we see possible new partners. Will Rishi and Dimple make #CoupleGoals this year or will new love interests pull the rug out from under them?” a statement from the streamer said.
Akarsh Khurana is the director and Ronnie Screwala is the producer of Mismatched. Gazal Dhaliwal, Aarsh Vora, Nandini Gupta, Sunayana Kumari, and Akshay Jhunjhunwala make up the writing team.
