Mismatched season 2 Hindi web series review: Story,Performances & Analysis

Dimple Ahuja (Prajakta Koli) is trying hard to forget what happened last night between her & her project partner Harsh (Vihaan Samat). Harsh arrives in her room to make her feel better so that she can join the class. They thought of keeping it between them only but their batchmates make things worse & during the heated discussion Dimple's rival Anmol Malhotra (Taaruk Raina) hit Momo (Ruturaj Shinde). Professor Siddharth Sinha aka Sid (Rannvijay Singha) arrives there on time & make an end to their fight.

Dimple is unable to forget her ex-boyfriend Rishi Singh Shekhawat (Rohit Saraf) and tried to contact him several times but Rishi ignored her. Rishi is busy for the preparation of his Grandmother’s (Suhasini Mulay) birthday & there he came to know that his mother Kalpana (Aditi Govitrikar) is going to marry Randeep (Digvijay Savant). 

With the arrival of Namrata Bidasaria(Devyani Shorey) at Rishi’s Grandmother’s birthday celebration, Rishi tried to talk to her & apologized but being his best friend and project partner she is hurt due to what Rishi did to her earlier.

Professor Siddharth Sinha aka Sid is trying his luck on his love interest Zeenat Karim (Vidya Malvade) with some occasional casual conversations between them. Anmol is now visiting the therapist (Akarsh Khurana) to control his anger as per his punishment by Sid.

Sid introduces Ayesha Duggirala (Priya Banerjee) to the students as she will be helping them supervise beta testing. Namrata started liking Ayesha but she is yet to get over from relationship with Celina Matthews(Muskkaan Jaferi).

On the occasion of Rishi’s mother’s wedding, the photographer Sanskriti (Sanjana Sarathy) arrives and started liking Rishi. On the other hand, Harsh and Dimple are also getting closer to each other slowly. Will Rishi & Dimple be able to get back their love for each other again?

Prajakta Koli is obviously the primary reason you should watch Mismatched season 2. She makes the character Dimple Ahuja look so easy to portray. She is flawless at times and sometimes went beyond the character to make it natural.

After delivering a convincing performance in the recently released Vikram Vedha starring Hrithik Roshan and Saif Ali Khan, Rohit Saraf tried his best but one of the main reasons his performance suffers is the poor writing of his character. The one area where the writers did well is the development of the chemistry between Rannvijay Singha and Vidya Malvade. 

Vidya Malvade’s character deserved more focus. Vihaan Samat as Harsh did a very good job especially in his scenes with Dimple during her bad days were executed very well. Jugal Hansraj as Rishi’s father doesn’t add anything to the progress of the narrative. Devyani Shorey, Sanjana Sarathy, & Taaruk Raina supported well with their respective roles.

The first couple of episodes of season 2 tried a lot to take you out of the mess which was created at the climax of season 1. But the writers somehow managed to take you to even more messy situations. The character development was not taken care of which will give you a feeling like the characters are too much confused and did not help in the progress of the story.

What makes Mismatched season 1 different, unique & interesting from season 2 was the chemistry between Prajakta Koli & Rohit Saraf and that is one thing I believe you will keep looking for from the beginning to the end before finally realizing the writers have come up with the script which rarely makes us engaged to it. 

Akarsh Khurana & Nipun Dharmadhikari’s directions falter in many scenes where you get a feeling of too much stretched unnecessarily. 

Final Words:

Mismatched Season 2 on Netflix is good in parts but the complex narrative makes it a bit tedious at times and poor writing & lack of focus on the character development part are some of the negative areas of this season.
