Mismatched REVIEW:

Mismatched is the tale of Dimple and Rishi, two individuals with different purposes in life.

While Dimple wishes to study Java, get a PhD and be an app developer, Rishi is a hopeless romantic in the search for his soulmate.

Dimple’s mom belonging to a mediocre family, fakes having a better lifestyle. Her sole purpose is to turn Dimple into a ‘lady’ and get her married in a well off family.

Complications arise when Dimple and Rishi cross paths and their relations & goals collide. A group of teens balance work and life, while working on their apps for 3 months.

The mismatched set up shakes up everyone’s life around Dimple and Rishi risking goals & relations.


The way of portraying the theme seems fresh and keeps viewers hooked. While the story keeps taking turns, the unexpected ending leaves the viewers off guard.

The series is worth watching but the plot being too real is hard to digest in a go!


Rating: 3 out of 5.

Mismatched QUOTES:

Kisse pyaar karein kisse na karein, ye humare haath me kahan hota hai.

Jinki qismat achi hoti hai, unhe wo ek mil jaata hai ‘the meant to be’, jo unhe accept karta hai,

Someone they can show all of their flaws to.


The songs ‘kahan ho tum’ by Prateek Kuhad and ‘Aisa Kyun’ by Anurag Saikia, Raghav and Nikhita are a treat for the Mismatched fans.
