Ronak Kotecha | Times of India: 3/5 | 6/10
Amusing and entertaining in parts, but regressive in spirit ... Full Review

Inkoo Kang | The Hollywood Reporter: - | 7/10
Natural light suffuses the production, and the colorful B-roll footage in India is refreshingly free of stereotypes. The 35- to 40-minute runtime is well suited to the storylines, with well-constructed cliffhangers underscoring the series' narrative ... Full Review

Kristen Baldwin | Entertainment Weekly: B+ | 7/10
All of this is presented as glossy, cosmopolitan drama, without a hint of "look at these crazy foreigners and their kooky customs!" condescension ... Full Review

Samit Sarkar | Polygon: - | 5/10
For all of the clients' unique personal stories, the show presents one particular image of Indian life ... Full Review

Fox News: - | 6/10
A little disjointed... conceivably worth watching, not for the matches though, because it didn't completely come together... a little free-form ... Full Review

Alison de Souza | The Straits Times: 4/5 | 8/10
As with any reality show, part of the fun is debating how genuine some of the pathos and epiphanies are - and reports have it that none of the couples that were matchmade are still together ... Full Review

Melissa Camacho | Common Sense Media: 3/5 | 6/10
Bingeable dating show raises questions about class, culture ... Full Review

Yashica Dutt | The Atlantic: - | 3/10
Indian Matchmaking allows a few jagged edges to remain as it tries to assure skeptical viewers that, ultimately, Indian arranged marriages aren't that bad. And that is the most chilling aspect of the show ... Full Review

Melanie McFarland | Salon: - | 6/10
Taking all of this into account, which most people won't, "Indian Matchmaking" is still as undeniably appealing as any series operating on a similar level of unreality, such as The Bachelor or The Bachelorette ... Full Review

Joel Keller | Decider: - | 6/10
Isn't too much different than other matchmaking and dating shows, except it brings thousands of years of tradition into the mix ... Full Review

Dominic Patten | Deadline: - | 6/10
Indian Matchmaking is a delight. It opens up a glimpse into a world that a lot of us only know by its worst aspects ... Full Review

Daniel Hart | Ready Steady Cut: 4/5 | 8/10
This Netflix series has definitely delivered above expectations, laying out matchmaking on an in-depth and carefully articulated level ... Full Review

<Shubra Gupta | The Indian Express: - | 4/10
Especially galling is the way independent-minded women are shown the door ... Full Review

Cinema Express: 2.5/5 | 5/10
There is tremendous binge-watch potential in Indian Matchmaking, which is structured in such a way that even if you are ‘hate-watching’, you get invested ... Full Review

Suchin Mehrotra | Film Companion: - | 5/10
Even as something that's not to be taken too seriously, Indian Matchmaking isn't the most engaging show ... Full Review

Poulomi Das | FirstPost: - | 3/10
An infuriating exercise in delusion, ending up doing exactly what it intended to rally against: exoticising a calculated, cultural practice that in reality is steeped in decades of misogyny, casteism, and gender inequality ... Full Review
