What happens to a couple who used to be in love, but later they don’t want to be together anymore? Well, in real life, the outcome is uncertain, while in the movies/ TVs, we predict a happy ending. Netflix’s new sitcom from India, Decoupled, seems to be trying to break the traditional outcome.
Released on December 17, 2021, Decoupled has become India’s No Netflix series in less than a week. This article will discuss the plot of Decoupled, review, actors, and director.
In the face of an uncertain future, celebrity author Arya Iyer (R Madhavan) and finance manager Shruti Sharma Iyar (Surveen Chawla) decide to break their marriage. After several years together as a couple, they are now looking for separation on good terms with co-parenting responsibilities in regards to their school-going daughter Rohini. The decision is made easier when it comes time to finally announce this major change; both even planned to host a separation party in Goa. That’s how the series proceeds with humor and comedy. But what happens at the end? Well, you will need to watch the full 8 episodes.
The series’ writer-creator Manu Joseph and director Hardik Mehta don't bother with going into the background of how Arya ended up in love with Shruti, but they do introduce us to them as an unhappy couple. The series begins with a narrative, and each of the eight episodes has a title. Each title represents the gist of the whole episode.
Even though Arya is a guy who speaks his mind and gets into trouble every single time, Shruti prefers him to be more careful with what he says. On rare occasions when she does hear him speak candidly in public places like restaurants or on trains- which happens more often than one would think -her embarrassment knows no bounds!
