Modern Love Hyderabad — out this week on Amazon Prime Video — has created a fair deal of buzz among fans as it is the Telugu language adaptation of the popular American romantic anthology of the same name. The second Indian take on Modern Love, after the Hindi-language Mumbai chapter, brings together quite a few popular names from the Telugu film industry such as Revathy, Nithya Menen, and Aadhi Pinisetty. Moreover, Nagesh Kukunoor serves as the showrunner on what is his second Telugu-language project after the comedy drama Good Luck Sakhi.
The Iqbal director recently revealed that working on Modern Love Hyderabad was an “exciting” affair as he enjoyed a “free reign”.
Kukunoor said in a prepared statement: I had free reign. So, this was far more exciting to venture into the Telugu space. Having shot it now, I'm a whole lot more open to working. Clearly, my confidence to work with my mother tongue has grown tenfold because of the show and by working with multiple actors. So, I think I might do more".
With that, here's everything you need to know about Modern Love Hyderabad, including release date and time, the full cast, number of episodes, and the directors involved.

Modern Love Hyderabad trailer
Amazon Prime Video released the first trailer for Modern Love Hyderabad on June 24 to give fans an idea of what to expect from the anthology. The one-minute 40-second teaser trailer introduced us to the lead characters and touched upon how relationships can sometimes transform into something unexpected.
This was followed by the full-length Modern Love Hyderabad trailer, which again focused on the layered nature of relationships. The second trailer also featured soothing songs that played in the background, adding depth to the reel romance.
Modern Love Hyderabad review
At the time of writing, not a single review was available for Modern Love Hyderabad. This suggests that either Amazon Prime Video is yet to provide early access to critics, or initial reactions are on embargo as is usually the case with most Prime Video originals from India.
Modern Love Chennai
Modern Love Hyderabad will be followed by the Tamil-language Modern Love Chennai, which brings together five filmmakers namely Bharathi Raja, Balaji Sakthivel, Raju Murugan, Krishnakumar Ramakumar, Akshay Sundher. Kishore, Ramya Nambeesan, and Ashok Selvan among others lead the third Indian adaptation of Modern Love. Modern Love Chennai, however, is yet to set a release date.
