Why one should watch ‘Aafat’:
The Aafat web series still stands as among the best produced by MX Player. The plot is well written with good humor and a great message, very subtly delivered with comic light-heartedness. These types of series break stereotypes and stand out for their observational view of our social hypocrisy. That our high-class education system and moral fabric, is not able to help us unchain out of stereotypical thinking with which a bride is chosen in an arranged marriage, is a rather poor reflection. Finding a bride is like an extended reality show in our country.
