    Golden Karavan

    I was of the opinion that Season 2 of Delhi Crime couldn't possibly outperform or even match the masterpiece that its predecessor was. However, while chasing the "Kaccha Baniyan Gang", DCP Vartika Chaturvedi proved, yet again, that we can always rely on her. While this entire year has been an illustration of Shefali Shah's supremacy,Tillotama Shome was a wonderful surprise to watch.

    20. Indian Matchmaking (Season 2)

    Netflix

    Sima Taparia from Mumbai was back with a bang in 2022! With new cast members and some familiar faces from the previous season, the second part ofIndian Matchmaking saw a series of awkward, forced, and incredibly confused pairs trying to make it out of the battlefield with a partner in crime.

    In 2022, the "Bollywood Wives" came back to haunt us with their peculiar accents and quirks and we all hated (but also secretly LOVED) it. There's just something about watching people live these completely bizarre lives that are so massively different from ours.

    Dharmatic Entertainment

    Now, let's all agree that we love to watch KWK and rail on the frivolity of the conversations, the outfits, the games, the sets, the guests, and the host. But we will still watch it because life is too short to be serious all the time.
