Indian families often ask young people when they plan to get married, so much so that if they earned a nickel each time they heard this question, they could fund a lunar exploration mission like Chandrayaan.This cultural fixation with marriage has been a subject of interest in Indian cinema, and it’s about to be explored in a light-hearted way in the Telugu series “Kumari Srimathi.”
“Kumari Srimathi” is a comedy-drama series set to premiere on Amazon Prime Video on September 28.Directed by Gomtesh Upadhye and written by Srinivas Avasarala, the show stars Nithya Menen in the lead role.
The teaser for the series gives us a glimpse of Srimathi’s life.It starts with her delivering items at a wedding, and an elderly woman at the event questions when Srimathi will get married since the bride is younger than her.Throughout the teaser, we see that this question is a constant in Srimathi’s life, with various marriage proposals being rejected.Srimathi is portrayed as someone who doesn’t tolerate nonsense and has a short temper.
