‘Made in Heaven’ season 2 – Empowering Stories and Realities: Unveiling the Impact of Female Creators on India’s Most Socially Aware Show

When women like Zoya Akhtar, Reema Kagti, Alankrita Shrivastava, and Mansi Jain lead the way as producers, directors, and writers, you witness what can easily be dubbed as India’s most socially aware show. Not to diminish the contributions of other writers Neeraj Ghaywan, Anil Lakhwani, and Rahul Nair, but this dynamic blend results in something truly remarkable.

The second season of Made In Heaven delves into a myriad of topics – divorce, bigamy, extramarital affairs, and the intricate landscape of casual relationships. While there’s a risk of this kind of material appearing preachy or forced, Made in Heaven strikes a balance, captivating us with its storytelling while addressing significant issues like domestic violence, teen relationships, racism, and unwed pregnancies.

The writing is crisp; long after you finish the series, you’ll realize how skillfully it intertwines the challenges faced by society with our own lives – spanning from class and caste biases to toxic wealth and work dynamics. MIH2 introduces us to complex characters in an unconventional and sometimes unsettling manner, making us think while we’re absorbed in admiring the intricate lehengas, the exquisite jewelry, and contemplating a glass of pink champagne.

But it’s not just about social awareness; MIH2 is also an inclusive show that explores queer relationships and the struggles of a transgender girl navigating the harsh world of dating apps, seeking understanding from friends who may not fully comprehend. It’s incredibly real.

The mix even includes a Bollywood wedding, set in an exotic location. In a season that celebrates love with Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani, this series showcases several love stories, sans the loud humor and flamboyant costumes. It’s raw, authentic, and relatable. A world of high-profile divorces, designer outfits, extravagant parties, and grand mansions intertwines with the everyday universe of Jassi, facing bills and hustles. Tara’s middle-class roots, her efforts to support her niece’s education and make her business profitable, and Nadeem’s unique dynamics, as he loves a girl aspiring for more – all these stories evoke sighs and smiles, unveiling the lives of these flawed yet beautiful individuals.

In a country where weddings hold immense significance, it’s fitting that each wedding in the series is lavish and enchanting, providing a perfect canvas for the drama of brides, grooms, and their families. MIH2 stands as India’s most visually appealing show, a characteristic it shares with Season 1. The actors shine brilliantly throughout. While the plethora of characters might seem overwhelming, each one manages to carve a space in your memory.

My only lament about Made in Heaven 2 is the prolonged wait (given that the first season premiered in 2020). In an era of content overload, it’s tough to recall the trials and tribulations of characters, particularly due to their sheer number. Releasing the second season sooner after the first would have added to its compelling allure.
