About the Author A sleepy-eyed copywriter, who woke up one fine day to write this novel. Shivnay Sabharwal has been a creative bohemian (with a couple of creative trophies) moving to 5 cities in the past decade. Goa being his latest base camp. His musings, the flow of waves at the beaches and the caffeine flowing into his veins (Beer too cliché). Follow him @TheQwertist on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

Main Plot given Truth is stranger than fiction. There’s something even stranger – Love. Being an Assistant Director and scriptwriter, Karan never knew that fate would make him fall in love with his most unpredictable script in the form of a woman – Kashish. And just like a riveting script, this one too had plenty of drama, passion, twists and turns, and yes plenty of surprises till the very end. The only question remained, whether this script would be a perfect – The End?
Characters Karan- A newbie Assistant director in Bollywood from Delhi. Ambitious person, who falls in love with Kashish.  He is guy who tries to balance between the career and love life.

Kashish- A free spirited Mumbai girl, who is into Hospitality. She is full of emotional outbursts with ups and downs, which make her highly unpredictable.

Tone of writing  Simple and straight.
My take on the book  The title and the titles given to each chapter is interesting. It takes us down the memory lane of Bollywood movie names and few famous songs. The titles aptly goes with the content of the parts written.

The characters are well evolved in Bollywood style of course, with twists and surprises before interval. it ends with a surprisingly unexpected climax.

I like the fact that, the book shows the varied emotions of today’s generation, who make love complicated with unnecessary egos. A part of the book reminds of mills and boons, but not exactly that heart throbbing.

A cheers to debutant Author, who’s love for Bollywood is seen in every word penned.

Do I recommend the book? Very much. A complete Bollywood masala..
On the other hand  my rating: 4.3/5.

Have you read this Book? What did you think? Let me know your thoughts and if you haven’t Read it yet, read it!!

Finally I would like to thank Leadstart Publishing Pvt Ltd for sending me the copy for reviewing.

Tone of writing  Simple and straight.
My take on the book The books takes us through varied emotions. At a point it makes us smile, cry in pain, wonder and also rethink.

Each story in book is kind of an observation of a particular incident, bringing in a new perspective of how we look at certain community of people and how they helped the society in crisis.

I also like the fact that the author has tried to bring across the stories from different cities, different time frames, thus making is complete in all aspects.

Do I recommend the book? One time read.
On the other hand  my rating: 3.3/5.
