Strictly Soulmates takes a fun, entertaining and emotional look at the real life trials and tribulations of a group of singletons trying to find their perfect match from four different religions: Evangelical Christian, Hindu, Muslim and Jewish.
This episode follows three young Hindu singletons on their journey to find 'the one' as they navigate their way through formal family introductions, Hindu speed-dating events and singles evenings.
At 28, Cardiff-born Hasmita is practically on the shelf. She is the last girl in the family to get married and the pressure is on. Even her local Hindu matchmakers say that if she waits any longer to find Mr Perfect, it is going to be too late. Luckily, after years of hunting, she is given the contact of a boy who, amazingly, ticks all of her long list of boxes. The problem is, he lives over 4,000 miles away in Dubai. Unbelievably, after a two-week trip there, she comes back engaged and she gets her fairytale ending in India after all.
Jalpa has always fallen for bad boys, but at 26 she has decided it is time to get serious and find a husband. For the first time ever, she takes the plunge and lets her mum and dad loose on her love life, allowing them to set her up on a few dates with some 'suitable' boys. Meanwhile, she cannot quite help keeping an eye open for someone herself and before long she is spending time with a guy who might not be exactly what mum and dad had in mind.
Coolly confident, Amardeep unleashes his charms on the Hindu dating scene only to discover it is a jungle out there and most of the girls he is lucky enough to talk to simply eat him for breakfast. Will he ever actually manage to pin a girl down for a date?
