Highly educated, affluent young professionals looking for love, meddling parents who have fixed ideas about their child’s perfect match and a story steeped in budding ­romances and broken hearts.

Throw in a controversial matchmaking auntie who often offers unsolicited and sexist advice and you’ve got Netflix’s ­latest bingeworthy dating show.

If you haven’t watched it yet, do yourself a favour. Indian Matchmaking is ­reality TV at its most gobsmackingly watchable and just the thing to forget the world’s woes right now.
