* ZeroPercentApprovalRating:
** The Delhi Police department, broadly perceived as uncaring and corrupt, and Indian law enforcement in general due in part to a recent increase in gang rape cases. One of the agents even hides his profession when discussing the [[DeliberateValuesDissonance marriage]] [[ArrangedMarriage prospects]] of his daughter, because well-off families will rather not become related to police.
** Nobody has anything good to say about Jai Singh ([[TheSociopath and for good reason]]), and is either scared or completely disgusted by him.
