Made In Heaven season 2 review: Hard-hitting series is back with a bang

In the second season of Made In Heaven, Tara and Karan continue to organize grand Indian weddings to keep their failing business afloat while dealing with their own personal issues. The second season is now streaming on Prime Video.


Six months after the events of the first season, Tara and Adil are getting a divorce. Tara’s life has changed a lot. Her old friends have abandoned her, and she no longer enjoys the luxury that she used to when she was married to Adil.

Homosexuality is now legal in India, but Karan’s mother, who has stage 4 cancer, refuses to accept him. She believes that it is Karan who is killing her, not the cancer. She emotionally blackmails him to marry a woman, which results in Karan indulging in self-destructive behavior.

Made In Heaven has not been making any profits, so Mr. Jauhari brings in an auditor, Bubul, who is Mr. Jauhari’s wife. There is one more addition to the team — Karan and Tara hire a production head, Meher Chaudhary, who is a transwoman.

Meanwhile, Jazz is ready to find someone and get married, and Kabir is going to NYU for his master’s degree. A lot has changed in the lives of the characters who are all struggling in their own ways, but the fairy-tale weddings must go on.

Similar to the first season, Sobhita Dhulipala and Arjun Mathur give great performances as the protagonists. Dhulipala’s depiction of Tara, a woman who braves it all and squares her shoulders to deal with the next problem, is bold and as authentic as it gets.

Arjun Mathur brings out Karan’s vulnerability, indignation, and heartbreak. Mathur’s performance does not falter even when his character starts acting completely different from his usual self after using drugs to deal with his pain.

Jim Sarbh and Kalki Koechlin are just as brilliant as they were in the first season. Similarly, Shashank Arora and Shivani Raghuvanshi are perfect as Kabir and Jazz.

Mona Singh and Trinetra Haldar are the latest additions to the cast of Made In Heaven. Singh’s performance gives depth to her character. Haldar also gives an adequate performance, and so do the other actors who appear in this season, including director Anurag Kashyap.


The second season of Made In Heaven is as hard-hitting as the first season, if not more. It brings out the various problems in our society with finesse. The values of those who are deemed progressive are judged and questioned when faced with age-old traditions that are extremely problematic.

The show also depicts the erasure and rejection of that part of a person’s identity that is not acceptable to society, be it the Dalit identity of a reputed professor or the queer identity of various characters in the show. The world becomes a hostile place for them at every step.

Whenever the minor characters in the show sit in front of the camera, the audience is made to feel like a spectator looking at them with a critical eye. It is almost like the show is asking the audience to pass judgment silently, the way Kabir does.

The characters are still as gray as ever, and their stories are complex. It is hard to dislike them for the choices that they make when they are desperate, hopeless, and struggling with various problems, like the difficulty of loving one’s parents even when they are unfair.

Apart from holding a mirror of reality, the show also gives the audience a taste of the big fat Indian weddings that are fresh, elegant, and enjoyable, thanks to the beautiful sets and costumes.


In the second season, Tara’s character does not develop much. She makes the others pay, but her own growth is stunted. As she is one of the protagonists, her lack of growth is a little disappointing.

Like the first season, the second season also has many powerful scenes that were memorable. However, there are times when, in an attempt to be realistic, the show loses the opportunity to make a statement that would have left a greater impact, as seen in Adhira’s case.


Made In Heaven does not lose its appeal in the second season. It continues to be engaging and hard-hitting as it takes the audience to the glittering and beautiful world of Indian weddings. It should definitely be on your watchlist!
