At the end of six stories Feels like Ishk bumpy but watchable, says Sukanya Verma.

Feels like Ishk evokes modern love.

It lacks the scope and emotion of a romantic anthology comedy inspired by New York Times a weekly column created by readers, but it captures the idea of ​​a magical bond between two people in six laid-back half-hour episodes.

Given the overkill in the anthology format lately, it’s a bit of a relief that Feels like Ishk more like a collection of individual shorts cataloged under a general heading.

Most of these odes of fluke are set in a post-pandemic universe where the protagonists are young, social media addicts smitten with good old-fashioned sparks.
