Some took a jibe at Akshay, one of the candidates in the show whose mother wants to get him married by the age of 25.

Many pointed out the blatant racism that exists in these setups and the obsession to find “fair” and “tall” brides.
So we not gonna address the constant and blatant colourism in #IndianMatchmaking? Okay, cool. Carry on.

Why are people shitting on #IndianMatchmaking for being sexist and casteist? The show is simply holding a mirror to the ugly society we are a part of. Also, here’s an underrated dialogue from the show. Needs more traction pic.twitter.com/YzZef4KozR

Aparna: Is rude, hardly let’s her dates speak, loves traveling but hates where her dates have traveled or have enjoyed traveling, says she doesn’t have to grow as a person.
