If You have not started watching the Hyderabad edition of Modern Love yet, get on it now. It’s subtitled too.
Dabbling with relationships, Modern Love Hyderabad tells a serious of stories that talk about love – from parental to romantic.
The series so far has roped in some of the best actors from the southern India film industries. Revathi’s performance as Meharunnisa, Noori's mother in episode 1 cannot be applauded enough, especially when she tries to win her daughter back by cooking some of the most delicious food.
Nithya Menen, who plays Noori, juggles her childlike demeanour and her deep understanding of relationships brilliantly when she stands up to her mother for marrying outside their community.
Episode 2, Aadhi Pinisetty and Ritu Varma, a live-in couple, demonstrates jealousy in the most amusing form when Varma finds a pair of stilettos, which definitely aren’t hers, in Pinishetty’s closet.
Suhasini Maniratnam as Gangamma excels in the third episode of Modern Love Hyderabad. The story, which delves into a relationship between a mother and her grandson and self-sacrifice, is directed by none other than Nagesh Kukunoor.
In the episode ‘About The Rustle In The Bushes, directed by Devika Bahudhanam, a protective father goes around snooping into her daughter’s life, trying to play detective.
In 'Finding Your Penguin', actor Komalee Prasad plays a stereotypical Hyderabadi youngster, checking out dates and objectifying them, mostly to just feel cool that they’re single. While most of the episodes touch a delicate spot, this one might have been a bit much.
