review by: Russell D’Silva
It seems that anthologies are the new trend for Indian web series, and truth be told, they are missing more marks than being right. Luckily, Modern Love Mumbai just squeezes in with a better bunch, some of whom are precious. Also, full disclosure, I haven’t seen the original American Modern Love, and so, Modern Love went to Mumbai with a clean slate and that’s why it might have worked for me. or did? We’ll never know, but what we do know is that I’ve been pleasantly mildly surprised with it.
So, are you excited about what to watch this weekend or what to watch this week and wondering if Modern Love Mumbai is worth your time? Scroll down for my complete Modern Love Mumbai web series Analysis,
what’s it about
Six romantic stories starring famous actors, such as Arshad Warsi, Chitrangada Singh, Tanuja, Prateek Gandhi And much more, starring respected names like Vishal Bhardwaj, Hansal Mehta and others, who capture the different emotions of that strange thing called love against the varied backdrop of splendid Mumbai.
see Modern Love Mumbai Trailer below:
Fatima Sana Sheikho The Kashmiri accent is well portrayed to t and the plight of the immigrants, but that’s about it.
A nice sensitive portrayal of homosexual relationships against a backdrop of hostile family strife and the uncertainty of what your loved ones face. Both Prateek Gandhi and veteran Tanuja are in good form, supported by Ranveer Brar. And there’s a cute, heartwarming twist at the end.
Definitely the best compilation, especially with its old world charm and how well the director Vishal Bhardwaj The friction between the future mother-in-law and son-in-law balances what could be a dead-to-death story about friction with no shortage of sympathy. It also pays meiyang chang, vamika gabbi And Yeo Yan Yan — presumably the quest for the entire show — is all completely cast. Most of all, it is so entertaining because how Bharadwaj proves that timeless tropes never go out of fashion when executed with freshness.

Sarika Again demonstrates how little her talent has been underutilized and the climax, which ends with a mature touch and a sense of self-discovery, is welcome, but that’s about it. it’s also good to see Navneet Nishan Even after his age in a very small role. Tanvi Azmialso, shines in a cameo.
i love thane
Masaba Gupta tries her best, but neither is her the best good for this kind of dull material nor is she an accomplished actress to rise above the material.
Possibly second best after Mumbai Dragon, capturing the spirit of the city and its changing landscape beautifully against the backdrop of a wedding that is seen and continues to see its ups and downs but still remains solid . Arshad Warsi and Chitrangada Singh are the icing on the cake and all the characters from all the episodes seamlessly merge at the end, with the cherry on top.
what is not
Despite that accent, Fatima Sana Shaikh is very loud and no less bothered to the point of being borderline neurotic. In fact, the way the director Shonali Bose Presents to him causing you to lose all sympathy for his plight. Also, it is not necessary to force women empowerment into everything because when the plot suddenly detours to make a point in that area, the irony seems to lose the plot entirely. Make no mistake, I’m all for female-centric stories, but coercing it out of nowhere feels like abusing an essential theme.
The middle part is quite backward. Drab is not the right way to express a love story, especially when you want to warm up to non-believers in what they think is a taboo subject. Also, Director Hansal Mehta Portraying gay marriage really could have been avoided – as much as your heart is in the right place, you also need to portray reality in front of the actual setting.
Honestly, there’s not much to talk about here except maybe the futility Naseeruddin Shah character for the plot.
my beautiful wrinkles
A tried-and-tested formula of a young man developing feelings for an older woman, narrated in a tried-and-tested way by director Alankrita Srivastava. Also, Danesh Razvi is very mediocre in his part and gets exposed badly in his part unlike Sarika.
i love thane
Certainly the most monotonous, soporific and bound by many motionless, endless verbiage. It’s not that what’s being said is meaningless, it’s just that it’s so interesting that I could care less about where it led. Furthermore, Thane is depicted as the majority of residents not living in Thane, in fact yours too.
The episodes could have been done with a little more depth and certainly with Arshad and his impeccable comic timing, but those are only minor catches.
Modern Love Mumbai on Amazon Prime may be a mixed bag, but there are more items in that bag you’ll want to avoid. Episodes 3 and 6 come highly recommended, the second episode is also hard not to heat up and the fourth manages to make the cut. You can also watch these four and pass the first and fifth episodes for a better viewing experience. I’m going with 3 out of 5 stars.
