Rushi Kota and Eva Bourne in Make Me A Match on Hallmark
According to the official synopsis, Vivi (Eva Bourne) is an optimistic woman with a bad romantic history. She works at a data-driven matchmaking app, and when she discovers the success rate for matches on the app is low, she enlists the help of Raina (Rekha Sharma), an Indian matchmaker, to give advice on how to improve the numbers.
Meanwhile, Raina suggests an unusual arrangement to teach Vivi her methods. She then uses her expertise to help Vivi find love, and she can then use the methods to help her company. As they embark on the matchmaking journey, Vivi meets Raina’s spontaneous son, Brumesh (Rushi Kota). This leads her to question whether finding love is something you can take control of, or allow to happen on its own.
