A Suitable Boy
Based on the book by Vikram Seth, the show follows the story of a young woman named Lata, who quite frankly just wants to live her life and survive the journey through education. Her very traditional mother, however, has other ideas and is constantly on the hunt for "a suitable boy" for Lata to marry. As a result, she meets a whole host of potential suitors, of course falls in love with all the wrong ones (we know the feeling), and alongside that, there's a bunch of family drama surrounding adultery, interfaith relationships, and female sexuality. It's a must watch.
