A Suitable Boy Season 2 Plot and Cast
The TV series has been adapted from Vikram Seth’s modern classic novel of the same name. The ambiance of the series is based on post-independence India in 1951. The show projects the way of life that people adapt to after the country’s long struggle for independence. Lata Mehra is a coming of age young woman who wants to have her own way to life. She wishes to explore her options and opportunities and wants to grow in her own way. But it is quite challenging to achieve in a prejudicial society where the elders make decisions regarding the children’s lives.
Lata is an English literature student at Brahmpur University and has three siblings, namely Savita, Varun, and Arun. Arun is married and is well settled with his family in Calcutta. The first season starts with Savita’s marriage, during which Rupa keeps telling Lata that she is the next one in line for the wedding. But as stated above, Lata is a free-spirited personality who wants to have her own way in life. She falls for a history student named Kabir Durrani at her university. After a few meetings, they realize that they like each other very much, but Lata used to see Kabir in secret, as she was a Hindu, and her family would never accept her having a Muslim fiance.
The story is parallelly shifted to the Kapoors, where Mahesh Kapoor is a Revenue Minister in the Purva Pradesh Government. He lives with his wife and his son Maan who does not wish to follow in his footsteps. Maan is an out-of-the-way kinda boy who doesn’t travel the “normal” way. He falls for a singer and a courtesan named Saeeda Bai, who is relatively older than him. His father disapproves of the relation and watches his son go down the destructive path. Tension mounts up Mahesh’s mind as he pushes for an important Zamindari Bill in the state assembly and is also working very hard to win the country’s first democratic election alongside worrying about his son and his future.
