Reception[edit]

Suchin Mehrotra of Film Companion wrote, "Mismatched suggests it’s a light, frothy, feel-good teen love story. A promise on which the series adaptation only partly delivers."[14] Poulomi Das of Firstpost stated, "There is a certain convenience to the storytelling... that makes teenage adolescence look like a statement, and not a stage of life."[15] News18 gave 2.5 out of 5 to the series and stated "Mismatched is a show which should be watched for what it is, a light teenage drama to be binged on a weekend. There isn't a lot of depth in it, but it really isn't fair to expect it from the show in the first place."[16] Koimoi gave the series, a rating of 3 out of 5 and stated "If you decide to watch this, wear your nostalgia glasses. Also be ready to be impressed by the majority of the cast including Prajakta Koli, Rohit Saraf and the hidden gems Muskkaan Jaferi and Vidya Malvade. If you have nothing to relax with this weekend, go for Mismatched, but with no expectations."[17] Pinkvilla reviewed as "Mismatched on Netlfix creates a young, fun and drama-filled world of college students but with prospects of marriage looming that seems to be the biggest dampener."[18]
