After Made In Heaven, Four More Shots Please!, Inside Edge, Breathe, Mirzapur and Laakhon Mein Ek, Amazon Prime Video has announced a new Indian Original series called Mind The Malhotras. The series revolves around Shefali and Rishabh Malhotra, a modern married couple, trapped in a dysfunctional marriage.
The trailer of the series released today. As it begins, we are introduced to Shefali, a bitter middle-aged woman, and Rishabh, her relatively laidback husband. Scared that they might head for a divorce much like their friends, they resort to a marriage counselor who asks them to try new things to add a spark to their sex life. The background score, a remix version of Kitabein bahut si, adds a necessary quirk to the series. In their own words, Mind The Malhotras is all about ‘ek weird parivaar’, ‘whacky sanskaar’ and ‘shocking vichaar’.
The two-and-a-half-minute trailer explores their troublesome sex life, their struggles in raising their three children and Shefali’s unconventionally bizarre dynamic with her mother-in-law. Check out the trailer here:
Mind The Malhotras is produced by Dia Mirza. It stars former MTV VJs, Mini Mathur and Cyrus Sahukar. Denzil Smith, Sushmita Mukherjee, Anandita Pagnis, Nikki Sharma, Jason D'souza and Rahul Verma form the rest of the cast. Mind the Malhotras has been directed by Sahil Sangha, Dia’s husband, and Ajay Bhuyan.
Mind the Malhotras will release June 7 on Amazon Prime Video. It is an adaptation of La Famiglia, an Israeli series.
