Mismatched Story Plot & Review

Do you believe that opposites attract? This is a story about two people who are a mismatch to each other, hence the title. The one focuses on a career, while the other one is pursuing marriage. Accompanied by friends with diverse personalities and backgrounds, Dimple’s whole summer crash course turned into a complicated but beautiful mishap.

A complete mismatch, but fate has its unique way of making everything fall into its right place. There’s beauty in imbalance, after all.

Episode 1: When Dimple Met Rishi

mismatched episode 1

So, Rishi here introduced the school. Together with his childhood best friend Namrata, he looked for the love of his life. There they first met Celina, the girl with blue hair. After Celina gave them the whereabouts of the girl he’s been looking for, they immediately rushed off to the canteen. Upon seeing the girl, Rishi tapped her shoulders and said, “Hello, future wife.” The anti-marriage girl named Dimple got creeped out and impulsively threw her cold coffee onto Rishi’s face. How does that feel, you ask? Well, see for yourself.
Moments later, flashbacks of what happened to the two of them days ago surface. Rishi saw Dimple’s natural picture on a dating website and instantly fell in love. Dimple’s mother has been arranging her for marriage, which Dimple totally despises as she dreams of being the best app developer. Upon getting admission in a summer crash course about app developing, Dimple tried to woo her parents to attend the said class. Surprisingly, her parents allowed her to go. Rishi, on the other hand, decided to attend the same course hoping to court Dimple.

Episode 2: Hot Summer, Cold Vibes

mismatched episode 3

After the two’s unfortunate meeting, Dimple learned why her parents allowed her to attend Jaipur’s summer class. That alone became the reason why Dimple easily got so annoyed at Rishi. Moments after they bonded on an assignment, Rishi hoped he’d be paired with Dimple for a project. Guess what happened?

Dimple doesn’t get along with her partner and doesn’t acknowledge him as one. After being insulted to make a meditation app for hyper-aggressive chicks who like to throw coffee on guys, Dimple sulked on a corner. Rishi came bringing Dimple’s bag. Poor Rishi. He always gets Dimple’s bad side, especially when she said that the marriage plan is all but canceled. Have you ever been in a situation where you do nothing, and yet you get someone’s negative aura? Rishi might be your soulmate.

Episode 3: Message Deleted

Being brokenhearted makes you make impulsive decisions, don’t they? Because it happened with Rishi when he turned over his dropping form. Meanwhile, on the other side of the ground, each student gave their ideas on the app they plan to make. Dimple’s ideas always get rejected.
Dimple and Rishi got invited to dinner with friends. Dimple, being the smartest of all, got bullied with her app ideas. Rishi walked Dimple home and was able to help her get an idea for an app. After they arrived home, Dimple sent a message to Rishi and immediately deleted it. Seconds later, Rishi responded to her message and deleted it as well. Guess that’s how love works with teenagers.

Episode 4: Making Moves

Do you have someone you can confide your secrets with? Even the deepest ones? Because that’s what Namrata did. Dimple and Rishi started working on the weather app idea, the atmosphere between them slowly becoming friendly. In the other group, Anmol doesn’t want to work with his pair. When Zeenat offered food so they could work on their project, Anmol invited everyone. A wild house party erupted at Zeenat’s residence, which resulted in some surprises and mishaps. Lucky for Dimple, she got an app idea from that party.
Sitting alone on the porch, Dimple misunderstood Rishi and Namrata’s friendship. To clear the misunderstanding, Rishi revealed Namrata’s secret.

Episode 5: It’s Not a Date

Rishi asked Dimple on a date. Having rejected, Rishi asked her for a platonic date, which Dimple gladly accepted. Although a platonic one, emotions took place, and secrets raised the risks. Rishi lied about his parents, which made Dimple mad.
Upon returning to the school’s boarding rooms, Dimple caught Celina making out with a guy. She excused herself and went outside while Celina ran after her. Dimple confides in Celina about Namrata’s secret. And after that, Dimple went to the ladies’ comfort room where she found Anmol inside. Having exchanged irate words, Anmol and Dimple agreed on a challenge.

Episode 6: Games We Play

Having a heavy heart with Rishi, Dimple dedicated herself to her app weeks before the Anmol gaming showdown. When Krish announced to the class about the upcoming game battle, Harsh decided to offer Dimple’s help, but Anmol cut him off. For nights, Anmol and their friends stayed at Harsh’s residence to practice on the game. Upon deciding to order food instead of eating what Harsh’s grandparents provided on the table, Simran saw Celina’s real-life under those spunky looks.
The day of the game arrived. Many betrayals took place. What do you think happened with the game? What kind of betrayals? Will Rishi and Dimple get together again? Well, watch the series to find out. 

More You Should Know

The RSVP has yet again showcased its ability to produce a refreshing yet relatable show with its recent series, Mismatched. The whole rom-com series is about two people being a mismatch to each other.

But not only that, RSVP has brought us some realities of society. From how society views women to be subservient to people being pretentious to live with society’s standards. Although the characters are teenagers, the concept applies to all. Also, the struggle of a 40-year-old woman in attending a class full of teenagers is highlighted.

You would totally relate to this show, whether you are a teen or in your late 30’s. If you are a teen, you are probably trying to find your way in life. If you are in your 20’s, you are probably having the dilemma of choosing between career and love unless you have both. If you are in your 30’s, this show would be your trip down the memory lane of all the butterflies and frustrations of your teenage life.

First things first, the casts are great and portrayed each character with perfection. Although there is only one character for each personality, which is quite unrealistic in a class, the show has perfectly showcased the careless, carefree, yet ambitious millennials’ attitude.

Even though a light-hearted drama, there are some serious moments that you’ll most likely relate to and find yourself thinking about that friend who betrayed you or the one you betrayed. Not just that, but also the struggles of a student doing a project. If you are an IT or Computer Science student, you’d totally relate to their struggles in building the app and other technology-related strifes. It’s a cute love story that will make you all giddy like a tweener.

But you might want to tie yourself tight because what you are about to watch will leave you emotional as it ends the season. That being said, this series will surely make you wait for Mismatched Season 2 as it did to all of us.
