Storyline

Permanent Roommates follows the story of commitment-wary Tanya, and Mikesh, her overeager long-distance boyfriend who returns to India from the United States of America to surprise Tanya and task her to marry him. Acting upon the advice of her roommate and her own reluctance to get married to someone who barely knows her, Tanya refuses, but gives in to Mikesh's persistence. The two eventually strike a compromise, opting to move in together first. The subsequent events- a fallout, followed by a conciliation, and Tanya's premarital pregnancy end in the two of them planning their wedding, with unforeseen consequences. Written by iakhtar33380

Neither do they die nor do they live happily ever after...It's a third kind of love story.
13 November 2016 | by i_odinSee all my reviews

A story about a boy and a girl discovering love out of a long distance relationship and eventually getting to the point of marriage. The story is as simple as it could be, but that is what makes it so real and beautiful. The fact that the writers never even try to be surreal for a moment give it a clear edge over other TV Series (this is not a TV series though).

Mikesh's and Tanya's characters are well crafted. Mikesh is sort of an "egg head" (according to the Wikipedia page) and Tanya is the more mature and smarter one. After three years of long distance relationship suddenly Mikesh proposes to Tanya for marriage which in turn creates confusion between the two. And the couple somehow manages with the baggage of their decision. The plot is funny, specially Mikesh who sometimes could be dumb as hell. There would be moments when someone can feel that they don't love each other and they are not a "meant for each other" couple, actually they are not! That's what makes it more realistic. They are not a perfect couple, not at all but they do love each other. Love and only love drives their story forward. Mikesh is annoying so one might end up thinking, "Why on earth Tanya is tolerating him? Maybe she would better off without him." But love doesn't work that way, and this love gives this simple, realistic story an "over the top" feel. Season one is more funny and reasonable. It is more compact in its storytelling. Season two also share the same theme, but it is more dramatic. The plot is a little bit loose and focuses more on the human elements and values of family, society, and culture. The fact that the episodes of the second season are quite lengthier than the first season can give you a reason for "liking it less". But as the story draws itself towards its conclusion, everything started making sense. The story certainly doesn't end in an "all-happy" mode, but in a more natural way where they try to find "happiness" among what is left of them (believe me one would understand it after watching). The writers very cleverly try to tie all the loose knots at the end, and they succeed also. Somehow you get to understand the feelings of both these characters which were buried deep inside them in this entire series.

Acting is superb. The direction is very good. But the real heroes are the writers. The way the story is written makes it more lovable. One extra marks for the story.

At the end the quote from their title. "Neither do they die nor do they live happily ever after...It's a third kind of love story." It is indeed.
