Indian Weddings, Queers, Secrets & More in Amazon Prime’s “Made in Heaven” Trailer
The trailer for Made in Heaven has been released, and I hope you check it out. The upcoming Amazon Prime Video Original series is ready to show the darkness underneath certain extravagant Indian weddings.
Made in Heaven is about two Delhi-based wedding planners, Tara and Karan. According to press notes, the upcoming series “portrays today’s India as a potent blend where tradition jostles with modern aspiration, set against the theme of the ‘Big Fat Indian Wedding’. Indians believe marriages are made in heaven and it is against these sacred unions that Tara and Karan’s personal journeys are juxtaposed.”
Here’s the trailer!
There’s drama, betrayal, affairs, queer representation, and so much more. I’m here for all of it!
Also, anyone else getting some Band Baaja Baaraat vibes?
Produced by Ritesh Sidhwani and Farhan Akhtar’s Excel Media & Entertainment, and Zoya Akhtar’s Tiger Baby, Made in Heaven also stars Kalki Koechlin (Margarita with a Straw). Zoya Akhtar directed episodes alongside Nitya Mehra (Baar Baar Dekho), Alankrita Shrivastava (Lipstick Under My Burkha), and Prashant Nair (Umrika). Shrivastava wrote all nine episodes.
“Creating Made in Heaven has been a labor of love,” Akhtar and Kagti said in a statement. “Our objective with this project was to tell a story that was inherently entertaining but strong and deeply rooted in our society. Grand Indian weddings acted as just the right backdrop to examine the liberal fabric of educated, modern Indians and their dichotomous value systems that co-exist peacefully at times and at others come into conflict.”
“Made in Heaven brings to Indian customers a show with a fresh storyline, incredible talent and a layered narrative that will draw the viewer in,” Prime Video’s India content chief Vijay Subramaniam said. “Indian weddings are a heady mix of celebrations, drama and intrigue for customers everywhere and this show will offer just that by lifting the veil and looking closely at what transpires behind-the-scenes. We are ecstatic to work with Zoya, Reema and the team and are certain audiences will enjoy this voyeuristic view beneath the veneer of grand Indian weddings.”
Made in Heaven will be available to stream on March 8, 2019.
