The Mumbai chapter of the international franchise, inspired by the famous New York Times column, will bring half a dozen soul-stirring and uplifting stories that are rooted in the heart of India's financial and entertaiment capital. A bouquet of six heart-warming, lyrical stories that explore love in its many forms, and together, all the stories represent a unique love affair with the poly-cultural city of Mumbai.

Modern Love Mumbai — the first Indian spin-off of rom-com anthology Modern Love, now streaming on Amazon Prime Video — opens with the same words as its American counterpart: “Inspired by personal essays from The New York Times column Modern Love. Certain elements have been fictionalised.” But curiously, unlike the original, Modern Love Mumbai doesn't reveal who wrote the columns the six episodes are inspired by. Why is it hiding the names of the authors? It begs the question: are these truly Mumbai stories submitted by Indian readers of NYT? Or — allow me my cynical ponderings — are these global stories transplanted to an Indian context? That occurred to me at times as I saw Modern Love Mumbai, more so because the episodes didn't pull me in.
