This is the very first time I have completely and irrevocably fallen in love with an Indian author. Ha! Me, who always use to criticize them for something or the other. I am talking about Richa Mukherjee, the author of Kanpur Khoofiya PVT Ltd.

The moment I started reading it, I knew that I was going to love this book and it’s super interesting characters.

Hat’s off to Richa, who did a remarkable job with her writing – simplistic, yet full of wit and humor – which is confide

Each of us is amazed by mysteries and have a craze for the unknown. Detectives have always featured as one of the most interesting and riveting literary characters. Be it Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes or Karamchand close to home, there are such characters that have made a place in our minds.

 The title of this book is extraordinary as it seems a registered private detective office’s name. After reading the title any reader will pay hisoor her attention to it and wish to know more about it. It’s a unique idea of keeping such kind of title. I must appreciate such kind of thought.

Cover: It is designed so wisely that can easily capture anyone’s eyes on it. In fact, I was overwhelmed by it. In my first attempt I didn’t catch that it was a customized co

Kanpur Khoofiya Pvt Ltd by Richa. S. Mukherjee

I personally believe it takes a lot of guts and courage to write a mystery novel or even stories about the detectives. One needs to keep the plot intriguing and every page must come out as the page-turner. A good book is a book which keeps a reader hooked and never give the urge to keep the book down before finishing it in a go.

Well, Kanpur Khoofiya Pvt Ltd turned out to be one such book for me. I'm not bragging at all. I'm always very p

"Like Karamchand?
When were you fired from your real job?
Do you eat carrots as well?
Are you kidding me?" - These are some of the usual questions Prachand Tripathi is asked when he reveals that he is a private investigator..😂

💯 Ladies & Gentlemen! Buckle up your seat belts and join the Kanpuriya Tripathi family for a LOL riot of a roller coaster ride through the pages of a unique local detective mystery solving novel.. 📚

. "Forget the plot, the uproarious characters will keep you hooked to the book."

#Insight- Cover needs no special mention, for it catches glance in a flick. The title is not to be judged but when "Kanpoor" is an inclusion, it easily rides your head that this is the way out from normalcy.
Rs250 is quite apt for this 290 pages vivacious tale of a Kanpuriya styled detective lingering between his

The story opens with the detective searching for a missing cat, thus highlighting how jobless the detective actually is. There is no major mystery or murder in the town and he has to survive with one or more small petty cases. His family is not at all happy with his choice in profession. He has an engineering degree however he is not interested in some basic job. His only support is his wife, Vidya.

But his super normal life is about to turn around with the entry of actress Shailaja K

Sometimes comes a book which after I have read, I think wistfully, wish I had written this. This is one of those.
The story is that of a detective who has been offered an important case read case with big, never seen before money. Add small town thugs, slow on the uptake policemen, a don- like dadi with a surprise, a wannabe singer, an ever angry patriarch and the wife who wants to escape the ghar ka chikchik and be gainfully employed and you get a whirlwind tale of well etched characters and lo

The book is getting revoked around Prachand who is a private investigator: witty,wise and spontaneous. He is offered with a case of secrecy to follow a person who was once very famous. Things are not always sugar coated and get very bad! Life which seemed hunky dory to then suddenly takes pathetic actions!!⠀
Listing out the things I loved in here in 5 points:⠀
❤ The writing style- super visualise-able⠀
I can relate this writing style to Sudeep Nagarkar's. so chill and rev

The story follows the struggling detective Prachand and his wife Vidya as they dig deep into their newest case. .
I’m sucker for mysteries/thrillers and this was a great read. The narration is fun and engaging, you’ll never be bored. .
The story is primarily set in Kanpur and it was fun to see the Kanpur language here and there. The plot is extremely entertaining and the characters are naturally hilarious.
I’m so excited to see this book become a film. Congratulations @mukh

Read the full review here:

The book has a lot going in favour then otherwise. It is a light-hearted fun-loving roller coaster story of a new small town detective on the scene, Prachand Tripathi. Richa S. Mukherjee’s Kanpur Khoofiya Pvt. Ltd. is a good one time cocktail of humour and mystery.

I am going with three and half stars for this Khoofiya ride. You will not come up out with shock-n-awe but it will definitely bring a smile to your face.

quick-witted, humored and refreshing read! the storyline was gripping and engaging throughout the plot and I applaud Prachand's attention to details and defensive tactics. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book as it is like a desi sherlock holmes novel! recommend this to everyone.. it's like a movie!

First half awesome.

Second half: Husband Wife Nagging.

I do not know why I was expecting the detective story.. its a drama... with no freshness...

same stupid trope...

I do not want to start on the cover... it's so unfashionable...
