War isn't over! 'Mismatched 2' teases rivalry between Dimple-Rishi
Ahead of the Mismatched Season 2 premiere on October 14, Netflix India has unveiled a brief teaser of the young adult drama, starring Prajakta Koli and Rohit Saraf in the lead. The first season arrived on the OTT giant in 2020 and had six episodes. Opening to favorable reviews, it particularly struck a chord with the youth and was praised for its performances.
Why does this story matter?
- Mismatched Season 1 was based on Sandhya Menon's 2017 novel When Dimple Met Rishi and followed the coming-of-age story of the two characters.
- It marked Prajakta Koli's first major acting role.
- Gazal Dhaliwal adapted the novel for the screen and as opposed to the novel's setting in the US, localized it to Jaipur.
- Akarsh Khurana and Nipun Dharmadhikari directed the series.
Brief clip focused on palpable tension between the duo
In the one-minute-long teaser, titled Cold Coffee Revenge, Dimple and Rishi can be seen on the Aravalli campus walking with their respective friends, while onlookers speak in hushed tones about them. When Rishi and Dimple finally meet, there's visible, awkward tension between the two, where Dimple wishes to "reset everything" while Rishi waltzes in and splashes cold coffee all over her, leaving her shell-shocked.
'Mismatched 2' will delve into new relationships, new drama
The season will delve into "new relationships, non-dates, and drama." On Thursday, Khurana announced the show's return and uploaded a brief introductory video. He wrote on social media, "Since December 2020, one question has been posed to me wherever I went, online and offline. Today, finally, we have an answer. Mark your calendars! Mismatched Season 2 drops on 14th October, only on [Netflix]."
