I hated it. I will never recommend anyone to read it. It is the only book that made me embarrassed after purchasing. I hate to know that I own it. It is ridiculous. And I don't know what the writer of this book thinks of himself!!! I left it half unread. I would never wish to complete this book.

Bored on a rainy evening. Picked up this book. Went through the first three chapters. Shit hit the fan. Buried it behind my house. Good riddance.

Nothing special in this book.It's plot is similar to the movies releasing now a days in Bollywood, cos the author is turning to be a script writer after this one.I still can't understand one thing Revathi's sister's name is Rupali(p-59) in the beginning and suddenly it got changed to Swetha(p-95) I don't know how this variation occurred.The novel shows that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.I liked the subplots of Anil and especially that of Vishal(he deserved it).

Worst reads ever!! A complete waste of time! I cannot begin to describe the hatred I have towards the author! The characters are so very annoying! The book has so many male chauvinist characters that it left me with nothing but disgust. Mayank was totally irritating, and Revathi, a supposedly intelligent woman sounded and acted like a complete idiot. When the book's cover said "a male chauvinist" I thought the author was referring to Mayank initially, but apparently it was Vishal. Male chauvinis...more
Without doubt, one of the most crass books I've ever had the misfortune of reading. Not only is the writing monumentally poor, but the plot (if it may be called that) is indescribably inane and shallow. Really pissed of at someone? Bingo! Gift him/her this book!
It is one of the most rubbish books I have read... so much like the daily soaps that come and go on televisions... Waste of time...
Pretty okay. Was expecting much more. It gets lame when it keeps on talking about marriage issues and life in Mumbai.

am still readung it....I would say its kind of OK.....not grt writting.....but it does hold your imterest...
Total disappointment.
Probably the worst book ever written.

Very confusing story... The picture that the plot gave away, it is the stories of five persons.. Or rather the stories of five different person's relationships..

In fact, five stories of people of a Metropolitan, in this case, Mumbai...

But it had just the story of Mayank (the lead) and just a few pages of stories of the other persons..

The narration was good, very vivid and clear...

Have been a big fan of literature, maybe thats the reason I was bored the entire length of the book.. In fact, the bo...more
This is undoubtedly one of the most boring and shitty, want of better word,coz it doesn't even qualify to be called one) I have ever read.Recommend it to the enemies whom you want bored to death.....;)

This is an unusual love story, the reader successfully captures our heart with his fine words and carefully chosen back drop.
Kunal Kumar
parcel of turns and in addition a genuine defination of intimate romance. anyhow it neglects to keep up the intrest all through the book
Neha Dobhal
Mediocre at best.
The other reviews made me go Lol!!!!
Something very different story.. in which very young boy falls in love with married woman (married for 10 years) just because young boy (Mayank) ...finds the resemblance of lost love (Shweta) in married woman (Revathi)....

In between there are other Anil, Vishal, Gargi, Sonia..and many more.....

Book is one time read.... but do not expect much from book...its simple love story........

Vani Taneja
On a rating of 1 to 5, with 1 being the least and 5 being the highest, I wont rate it anything beyond 2.5. The fact that it is Tuhin's first work, is quite evident in the way it has been put, immatured writing at some points. Otherwise, it is quite an honest attempt at the complexities of relationships in today's time.
Harshvardhan Arya
The bookkk takess u to the crowded city of Banaras.
Itzz such a story in fact a luv story in which in the end u cannot judge which of the character (Arti, Gopal or Ragha)iss the ideal and the perfect one. It livess u with a question and dilemma of the behaviour of Gopal in the end.
Rishi Prakash
It is nice n cute...the story revolves around different characters...and somehow their lives gets entangled somewhere in the middle...Tuhin shows lots of promise in his first book and looks like he is going to stay here for a long time!
At the very first glance this book might look a bit mawkish you but later it will definitely succeed in captivating you....though the book is filled with histrionic sentiments you can devour it pleasantly!!!!!!!!!!!!
Mridani Pandey
This book was something that underwent the social changes in the life of an urban was good but not like sth which cn grab ur attention for a very long does'nt remembers d book after reading....
Deepmay Chakraborty
Just a script based on practical love rather than platonic...well written book :)
a usual story about love...
which happens around us...
This book better reminds above again....
Jyoti Patil
Very average love story that did not make sense in the end. Amateur readers might like this one. Two stars only for the Mumbai part of it

Rent/Deposit: 20/150
This is just a one time read. Its more like a usual bollywood movie though the narration is good enough to not bore you.
Anurag Nirmal
What is liked the most in the novel is description of the lady dressed in white in Mumbai rain... very well described
