Unlike matchmaker Seema from the net collection who goes via catalogues to decide on potential brides and grooms, Shobha (her company is referred to as ‘Rishte hi Rishte’) has a monitor report of arranging 100% profitable marriages. She takes Sunny below her wings, with the consent of his dad and mom, and units him as much as path Ginny.
Can love be organized? The dad and mom and Sunny hope so. The Delhi and NCR romance nods to many issues synonymous with Punjabi households — from the recognition of Baadshah and Mika Sigh numbers to strains similar to ‘we Punjabis are left with emotions and paneer’ (Navjot Gulati and Sumit Arora share the writing credit).
