Mismatched: Plot

Based on Sandhya Menon’s 2017 novel When Dimple Met Rishi, it will be a coming-of-age romance drama web series in the Indian language of Hindi that will premiere on Netflix in 2020. Gazal Dhaliwal was the one responsible for the adaptation, and Akarsh Khurana and Nipun Dharmadhikari were the ones in charge of directing it. Ronnie Screwvala’s RSVP Movies is the company that is producing it.

Rishi, a hopeless romantic who adheres to conventional modes of courtship, falls for Dimple, a gamer, and eventually wants to marry her. The series stars Prajakta Koli, Rohit Saraf, Rannvijay Singha, and Vidya Malvade in prominent roles. The story follows Rishi as he pursues a romantic relationship with Dimple.

The novel was adapted by Dhaliwal in the beginning of 2018, and the script is currently being modified for the series. Although the events of the story take place in the United States in the novel, they are shown to take place in Jaipur in the adaptation.

Avinash Arun and Milind Jog are responsible for the series’ cinematography, and Sanyukta Kaza and Namrata Rao are responsible for the series’ editing. The soundtrack album for Mismatched was created by Jasleen Royal, Samar Grewal, Anurag Saikia, Prateek Kuhad, Shashwat Singh, Taaruk Raina, Deepa Unnikrishnan, Abhijay Negi, and Hiphop Bhaiya. Saikia was also responsible for producing the background score for the series.

The first episode of the series was made available for watching on Netflix on November 20th, 2020.

It was well welcomed by both audiences and critics, who complimented Saraf and Koli’s on-screen chemistry, as well as the performances of the rest of the cast, the music, and the background soundtrack. On the other hand, the writing and the director came in for some criticism.

On March 3, 2021, the show was given the green light for a second season after receiving a renewal.

Mismatched: Production

Late in 2018, Ronnie Screwvala of RSVP Movies and Netflix India approached screenwriter Gazal Dhaliwal with the idea of adapting Sandhya Menon’s novel When Dimple Met Rishi for audiences in India. When Dimple Met Rishi was published in 2017.

The original book tells the story of two Indo-American teens named Dimple and Rishi, who are the protagonists of the story, and whose parents are trying to set them up in a marriage arrangement.

According to a report in the New York Times, the novel, which was published by Hachette Book Group and had a positive reception from readers at its initial release, went on to become a top seller.  Akarsh Khurana, best known for his work on Karwaan[8, and Nipun Avinash Dharmadhikari have been tapped by Netflix to direct the series.

Before Khurana was brought on board to direct the series, Dhaliwal had already wrapped up penning the script in its entirety. The revised script was given Khurana’s stamp of approval because, in his words, “it was a love story between two real people with real concerns.”

He continued, “Even though at its core this was a love story for young adults, it was handled with a level of maturity that belied its subject matter. Dhaliwal, who counts Kuch Kuch Hota Hai as one of her guilty pleasures, was similarly drawn in by the simplicity of the high-school romance at the heart of the book. This is in contrast to the large-scale candyfloss high school universe that is depicted in Hindi films. In the book, the high school romance takes place in a small town.”

Mismatched: Casting

Dhaliawal discussed the casting and characters, synchronizing to the adaption, and the liberties taken when recalibrating the plot to the Indian milieu in an interview with Firstpost. She continued, “The plot centers on an arrangement that was supposed to go smoothly but ended up being disastrous. It was essential to make adjustments to the dynamic within the family in order to make that happen.

Both Akarsh and I felt very strongly about the fact that it wouldn’t have been believable for Indian viewers if Rishi’s parents were behind him to start looking out for girls when he’s all of 18 so that he can get married in two years. We thought that it would have been more realistic for Rishi to wait until he was at least 20 before he started dating. Because of this, I included a grandmother in the story (her character is not featured in the book), and I used the elder generation’s loyalty to tradition as a reason for the set-up of the planned marriage. I also experimented with Rishi’s relationships with his parents. In the novel, Rishi’s parents, who are members of a traditional Gujarati family, are still married, and Rishi is portrayed as being more obedient and less hopelessly passionate than he is in real life.”

Characters

Both Prajakta Koli and Rohit Saraf have been given roles in the series, with the former making their acting debut in the project.

In an interview, Saraf made the following statement: “The ‘romance’ that the show possesses was, in his opinion, the show’s strongest selling feature. The love, the aspiration, the navigating through the college years of one’s life, and the type of acceptance toward all that was going on in my life were things that I found to be extremely applicable in the book.”

The author Koli gave a description of her character Dimple, “She is extremely focused on achieving her objective because if she doesn’t, her parents will force her to be married! Isn’t that something that may be related to by a large number of girls and boys all around the country? There are a lot of people in my family who are my cousins that are going through this problem. Since of this, it is quite difficult to get through to Dimple because she never drops her guard.”

Rannvijay Singha has described his character as “cool and sardonic on the exterior but a softie on the heart, Professor Sid (himself) believes in tough love when it comes to his students.” Rannvijay Singha is the actor who plays Professor Sid. When he was asked about his part, he continued by saying that the character he plays urges students to challenge themselves and step outside of their comfort zones so that they can realize their full potential.

Mismatched: Filming

Although the events in the book take place in the United States, the story was retold to take place in Jaipur (India). Khurana, when asked about the environment, stated the following in an interview with Poulomi Das of Firstpost: “When I initially read Gazal’s take on the book, what I loved was that she altered the context for the love story at the center of the proceedings and introduced a host of new characters who had a very distinct characteristics which made the world building so much more interesting.”

The series was shot in November 2019, with the majority of the scenes being shot in Jaipur. Some of the sequences were shot in Old Royal School of Jodhpur, however the rest of the scenes were shot in Jaipur. The filming took place over the course of 38–39 days, with each day’s shooting lasting the cast members for 12 hours. In May of 2020, during the COVID-19 pandemic lockdown in India, the post-production work was successfully finished.

Mismatched: Soundtrack

A total of nine different musicians contributed to the making of the soundtrack album for the film Mismatched. These musicians are as follows: Jasleen Royal, Samar Grewal, Anurag Saikia, Prateek Kuhad, Shashwat Singh, Taaruk Raina, Deepa Unnikrishnan, and Abhijay Negi. Hiphop Bhaiya also contributed to the album. Along with Nikhita Gandhi, Raj Shekhar, Shwetang Shankar, and Ritviz, five of them are also responsible for writing the lyrics for the songs.

Anurag Saikia was responsible for composing the series’ background music as well. The soundtrack album was released on November 11, 2020, and initially had seven tracks. On November 20, 2020, the song “Sun Toh” was made available for download as a bonus track, making the total number of songs on the album eight.

“The Mismatched soundtrack is a couple of sweet ballads combined with some strange cross-genre things, that doesn’t make you disappoint,” Devarsi Ghosh of Scroll.in noted when reviewing the album.

According to what Umesh Punwani of Koimoi said, “This album is full of upbeat, fresh songs that were written specifically to follow the various characters in this series as they go on their own separate journeys. This CD is ideal for a younger audience that enjoys listening to experimental music because it ranges from high-energy to uplifting and even melancholy.”
