Without a doubt, the City of Pearls is one of the most unique cities in India, offering a distinct and culturally vibrant vibe. Hyderabad beautifully blends the old city with the new suburbs, boasts of a diverse population of natives and non-natives, has perhaps one of the richest cuisines – a blend of various cultural influences, and is a destination flourishing for new-age industries. For anyone unfamiliar with the city’s rich tapestry, Modern Love Hyderabad episodes will give a great insight into this fabulous city and pique your need for food and adventure. Watch it and find out for yourself.
A love that goes beyond romance!
As promised in the trailer, Modern Love Hyderabad goes beyond the male-female relationship. The anthology boasts of 3 stories that explore family loves – between parent and child, grandparent and grandchild, and the remaining episodes tackle different stages of modern love relationships, from dating dilemmas to budding romance to couple comedies. With constant chatter to include all kinds of love, it’s refreshing that the series captures the bonds of affection and attachment that are often forgotten and overlooked.
Central of artists
Although the stories may seem ordinary, rest assured that the talented actors who have poured their hearts and souls into their respective characters make each episode extraordinary and enjoyable. Some of the best actors in Indian film industry like Suhasini Maniratnam, Revathy, Nithya Menen, Aadhi Pinisetty, Ritu Varma, Naresh, Abije and Duddala to emerging talents like Komalee Prasad, Naresh Agastya and Ulka Gupta come together in this series, making those characters relevant and want to tug on your heartstrings.
An eclectic set of creators
Modern Love Hyderabad is Amazon Prime Video’s first Telugu Original that re-establishes the streaming service’s commitment to creating stories rooted in local ethos and culture. And it’s interesting that they brought in Elahe Hiptoola and Nagesh Kukunoor who, through Hyderabad Blues, introduced this city to the mainstream, and now they’ve taken it a step further with this Amazon Original series. While Nagesh Kukunoor co-wrote all episodes and directed 3 stories, the remaining episodes are directed by Venkatesh Maha, Uday Gurrala and Devika Bahudhanam. Each director lends their personal perspective and creative voice to their respective stories, making them truly unique.
