Indian Matchmaking

Indian Matchmaking is one of the newest Netflix shows that has managed to become a topic of heavy discussion on social media and is receiving not-so favourable reviews. The reality show takes us through the lives of Indian bachelors and bachelorettes as well as US-based contestants who are forced into seeking help from an Indian matchmaker for marriage. The show is receiving a lot of backlash for pushing a myopic approach towards Indian marriages. There has been a lot of talk about Indian matchmaker on the show, Sima Taparia whose cringey lines are being slammed by viewers.A Suitable Boy Adaptation: Ram Kapoor, Shahana Goswami and Vivek Gomber on Board for Mira Nair’s BBC One Series.

The dating/matchmaking series whilst throwing light on the setup of Indian arranged marriages, seems to be perpetuating old beliefs and reinforcing stereotypes. Several people on social media have called out the show for promoting racism and casteism. At one point on the show, matchmaker Sima Taparia is also seen saying derogatory things such as, “because of your situation your options are limited, you have to adjust with what you get” to a divorcee woman seeking a husband. Check out how Twitterati have reacted to this controversial show.

Promoting a Narrow-Minded Attitude

this show really portrays how narrow minded the Indian society can be. How is having a “fair” partner going to guarantee your marriage to last forever??? 🤦🏻‍♀️

Regressive in All Sense:

#IndianMatchmaking on #Netflix is so problematic and regressive. Indian women have been trying hard to step out of decades laid patriarchal structure and you are doing nothing but engraving it deeper by greenlightning a show in the name of Orignal content

Cringey Is The Word:

This show on Netflix #IndianMatchmaking is so cringey. It’s everything about indian culture I hate and I’m so glad I stood up for myself to be with someone outside of that culture and who loves me FOR ME and not just cause I’m “successful or pretty”

The show has certainly opened up a dialogue on the toxicity and overall and major issues with the concept of arrange marriage. Let’s hope the show serves as a warning to do better than to learn from its regressive ideas.

Bigg Boss 14: Kavita Kaushik’s Husband Ronnit Biswas Reveals His Relatives In Law-Enforcement Have Approached Him To File A Complaint Against Aly Goni For His Violent Behaviour

Bigg Boss 14: Kavita Kaushik's Husband Ronnit Biswas Reveals His Relatives In Law-Enforcement Have Approached Him To File A Complaint Against Aly Goni For His Violent Behaviour




A recent Bigg Boss 14 episode saw Aly Goni lose his s**t on captain Kavita Kaushik when she takes away his personal items as a punishment from stealing juice bottles meant only for the captain. Kavita said to Aly, “mai teri baap hun”, which irked him to no end and tempers flew. In a fit of rage, Aly kicked a trash bin which hurt Kavita, who was standing close to it and the houe erupted in chaos. Talking about his wife battling chaos almost daily in the house, Kavita’s hubby Ronnit Biswas said, “Physical violence was never a thing which we had signed up for whether it happened directly or indirectly it doesn’t matter.” Bigg Boss 14: Captain Kavita Kaushik Demands Aly Goni’s Eviction After He Gets Aggressive and Violent With Her (Watch Video).

“I had seen the promo first, day before yesterday and I was very disturbed. But once I saw the way Kavita was putting up to it and how she was behaving I felt extremely proud of her. My sadness disappeared and I got happy thinking that no matter how much you try to target this girl, she will not bow down to anyone. She will come out shining and strong,” said a proud Ronnit in a conversation with ETimes TV. Bigg Boss 14 November 24 Episode: Aly Goni Pays a Huge Prize for Getting Violent Towards Captain Kavita Kaushik – 6 Highlights of BB 14.

He also went on to say that what Kavita said to Aly was not a big deal. Stating that Aly also said the same line to Kavita thrice, Ronnit revealed, “He has also said this to her thrice after that. So, I think the topic should have ended then and there itself. But I understand most of the housemates know that Kavita is quite strong and if they fight with her or corner her, they will get some footage. It is very sad that in a country where we keep talking about women are equal to men, we worship Goddess, we celebrate women and talk about women empowerment, there is a man who is threatening a woman on national television that he will make her life a living hell or won’t let her sleep (main iska jeena haram kar doonga, main sune nahi doonga).”

 

Check Out the Video Below:

Ronnit also argued that Aly’s intentions were indeed violent and showed during the fight. “If he didn’t want to hurt anyone there was another trash bin lying behind he could have kicked it but he hit the one close to Kavita, this goes on to show his intention. We all saw how aggressive he was getting, if a man is so aggressive with a woman then we can understand that there is certainly something wrong with his mind. Because of people like him, other men who are good towards women also get bashed.”

Ronnit also took a dig at the other male contestants present in the house. “Hum itni badi badi baatein karte hain about respecting women, Beti Padhao Beti bachao, all of these goes into a drain we see such behaviour on national television. I am very proud of Kavita that she has stood up against so many people. All the other so called men in the house, who had problems when Jasmin had a breakdown and had an issue with Rahul which was again not an issue and was created, few ‘so called men’ stood by her. But surprisingly, in last night’s episode no one said that Aly you are doing wrong and if Kavita said it, you also repeated it, thrice. Ye joh baaki aadmi hai Bigg Boss ke ghar mein pata nahi inko kasie aadmi kahein.”

Ronnit is also of the opinion that Aly’s bestie Jasmin Bhasin, who in the past few episodes, has been targeting Kavita, is now shing her rel side. “After watching the recent episodes I have started to feel that in the show a woman is another woman’s biggest enemy. What we saw of Jasmin Bhasin in the first few weeks was absolutely fake and we are getting to see her real side now. Now, she is coming into her element and can only mock and imitate Kavita and she thinks she is funny. I can’t believe an actor can do something like this to a senior. She uses the same insulting behaviour with Eijaz Khan also. Eijaz and Kavita are still closer in age wise. Eijaz is 45, Kavita is 39 and Jasmin must be in 30s and despite having such a huge age difference she mocks Eijaz. We have got to see how much she respects her seniors. Even the audience and fans are seeing it.”

Few of Ronnit’s relatives, who are in law-enforcement, have approached him asking him if he wants to file a complaint against Aly Goni. “I have been getting a lot of calls from our well-wishers and relatives who are into the Police force, Government officials and they are asking me If I want to take action against Aly Goni or register a complaint. Although, I have told them that it is not needed, but I was expecting from the channel and the production house a stricter punishment. One week’s nomination doesn’t make any sense,” concluded Ronnit.
