An entertaining rom-com that never leaves ale moment.
A typical love story of a couple, Ved and Akira who met as strangers in an outburst of angry circumstances but fell in love and made each other realize that they were a match made in heaven. When I initially started the book, I was scared of the pages I had to complete. I somehow comprehended the end. The length of the book shivered me a bit but because of its interesting cover and book title, I had to give it a second chance. After all, who would like to miss out on a ride of emotions by flipping just the pages of a book? Did I say before that reading this book would give you the essence of how amazing and joyous Punjabi families are to be general? You would just fall in love with Ved’s family and extended family the minute to get introduced to them. I could feel the love of grandmothers, the annoyance of cousins, the mischief of a little sister and a wholesome amount of warmth.
I love storytelling. It’s all that we expect from a north Indian family narration. If you read this book, remember there’s a package of action, drama and romance waiting for you. As I said, though 358 pages on Kindle was tough but I’m happy with the way the book gradually took a clifftop rise in terms of narration. The characters dominate the book and I’m glad to read a book that gave equal importance to the side characters apart from protagonists.
The author’s simple words can make to feel stupid, laugh out loud in pin-drop silence and makes you feel want to be loved and if you’re in a long-distance with your lover, surely you would miss the person. This book makes you experience emotions like a parallel line- they cry, you cry. They laugh- you laugh harder. Several Hindi Punjabi exchanges give fluidity to comprehend.
I loved the fact that Ved’s parents understood Akira just like their daughter. They accepted and in some parts embraced the flaws she carried. They were kind enough to acknowledge the emotional baggage that Akira was caring. Despite all the family drama with his parents and sister back in Mumbai, Ved learnt to love and respect and adapt with his lover from his parents. Though there were little editing errors here and there, I would love to recommend it with all my heart.
