I am a third year law student at the National Law School of India University, Bangalore. I believe in bringing to the fore the voices of the ignored and the unheard mostly because I grew up and went to school with underprivileged kids although from a middle class family. Whenever I'm not sleeping, eating or overburdened by projects and classes, I'm probably being hated on for being a SJW trying to make people acknowledge their privilege.
Indian Matchmaking follows the lives of Indian individuals trying to get married through a matchmaker based in Mumbai, Sima Taparia. Another lesser known Netflix venture that she was a part of, was a documentary titled 'A Suitable Girl'.
This is a narrative based on a ‘true story’ as seen through the eyes of a daughter, that is, Shakuntala Devi’s daughter Anupama Banerji. In doing so, unfortunately, this film has reduced the life of the late Guinness-record-holding 'human calculator' to just her motherhood.
