Breaking the stereotype of the daily soap operas, Made in Heaven has come out as a surprise for the audience. It portrays the reality of weddings and shows how those lovely and cozy perfect weddings have emotional cracks lying underneath. The way it has shown that love sees no age and how children revolt to their parents getting remarried is outstanding. It encourages the youth to understand that age is just a number. The show portrays that even after a lot of development, dowry taking still persists. Our young boys and girls should stand up against it. The part most appreciated is how some families and girls decide to marry someone to achieve their materialistic dreams forgetting the repercussions.

Another amazing agenda that the show picks is orthodox thinking. Even if you strongly believe in astrology, consult an intelligent astrologer who will give you the right advice. This was portrayed by showing how being manglik is considered as an issue but manglik people are passionate sex lovers which is a good thing when it comes to weddings. It shows how people with money and power exploit the weaker ones where a mehndiwali is sexually assaulted in one episode. This should stop!

It shows how the father of the daughter takes huge loans to have a lavish wedding just for the sake of showing it off. This thinking has to change. Overall, this show is a super bang on!

What is the entire buzz about:

The show peels off the layers of the so called perfect fairy tale weddings and evinces the actual reality. This makes the audience relate with the characters to a very large extent. As I mentioned earlier, each episode shows a new wedding that prevents the show from being the same old Indian soap operas with stupid plot twists and what not! It reflects the impact of money and power in real life. Basically the show portrays absolute reality.
