What is Netflix?
We were thinking if it’s even necessary to discuss what Netflix is all about, because who doesn’t know Netflix, right? We all do.
But assuming there are some who don’t know, Netflix is an American media service company provider. You can access it via their website or the Netflix app. By signing up and a little fee, you get the chance to watch a lot (as in a lot!) of movies and series of different genres – including our favorite, romantic comedies.

The lead movie characters were portrayed by Irrfan Khan and Parvathy. Qareeb Qareeb Single was released worldwide on November 10, 2017. It was Pavarthy’s Hindi film debut, which earned her a lot of praises.
The story of Qareeb Qareeb Single revolves around Jaya Shashidharan (portrayed by Pavarthy), a 35-year-old widow who lives alone, loveless, living a monotonous life, and still grieving over the loss of her husband. She works at an Insurance Policy Company.
Provoked by her friends and family, she signed up in an online dating website called, AbTakSingle.com where she eventually met Yogendra “Yogi” Kumar Devendra Nath Prajapati (portrayed by Irrfan Khan).
Yogi is a poet (whose published book did not sell pretty well), open-hearted, talkative and easy-going. He and Jaya eventually went out on a date where Yogi talked about her past three relationships who he claimed still yearn for him. The date ended with a Jaya challenging Yogi to prove his claim. So, they ended up traveling around the country to meet Yogi’s three ex-girlfriends.
