Much like Jane Austen's original Emma, this is a retelling of her book but it's updated in the modern world and set in India.
We meet Ania, Khurana, who is just like Emma, a socialite, the only daughter, self-indulgent, proclaims herself to be grander than she truly is, but good hearted when not being spiteful or naughty. She too loves to partake in matchmaking. Just ask her bau (auntie), Renu! She creates a profile for this online dating app in which Ania monitors for Bau Renu who's in her 50's and is fine about staying home and doing the things she loves to do, like reading wine catalogs that she can't order barrels or cases of since she lives in Dileep (her brother and Ania's father) house. It was through Ania's picnic gathering that Bau Renu met Colonel Suraj Singh Rathore. They encounter and can't tear themselves away from each other. They honeymoon in London and Ania tags along.
One good deed done, now Ania needs to occupy her time and find something else or someone else to ....oh hello Dimple, my newest friend. Once again, Ania seeks out the "Mr Right" for Dimple, even though he's already there (Ankit), Ania declares,"Aim higher!" Dev Gahlot (family friend throughout their childhood) decrees Ania is not always right and sometimes unknowingly cruel.
The rest reads parallel to the original but this has much more richness of india to give its grandeur. I have to come clean...I read Jane Austen's Emma, saw the movie to see if it would entrance me to want to reread it with better appreciation and read this retelling tale. I've drawn to the same conclusion. I just don't care for Emma, the book, movie nor the retelling. If a graphic novel even came out, I will opt to skip it. I'm done with Emma. I've tried and I'm done more than my share to give it a fair chance. Yet if I had a baby girl, I'd consider that name because I do love that name. Oh wait, there's the name Chloe too. Nvm. ;)
