All the actors have done justice to their characters. The production team has also done a good job. Everything from grand sets to the characters’ dress and hair to makeup make the series of that era. Declan’s cinematography perfectly reflects the fluctuations in the show’s mood. The background music of Alex Heffes and Anushka Shankar in the series is perfect for the series.
The lands are divided but our hearts can’t be. #ASuitableBoy and Netflix, the perfect match❤️#Tabu#IshaanKhatter #TanyaManiktalaAsRasikaDugal@MrVijayVarmaShahanaGoswami@dasnamit@MiraPagliNair @bbcstudios pic.twitter.com/dCHbBytctP

What’s not new?
A lot goes on in this series but nothing happens. It can be said that this series is one of the most directionless projects of Mira Nair yet. This series gives you a very different experience. You have to wait for 5 episodes to understand and feel this series of 6 episodes correctly. Even after this, the end of the series does not meet your expectations. Director Meera Nayyar along with editors Nico Felton and Tanu Priya Sharma should also be blamed on the case.
