Dunno why, but again I picked up a so-called contemporary Indian author and yet again the read has been disappointing.
Starts with a pervert engineering student, who's perhaps had more hook ups than the number of lectures he's attended. Crushes, making out and then dumping off. Half of the novel goes in this way. Finally some impossibly beautiful, had-been drug addict, confident girl steps into the pervert's life and, poof, our hero is in true love! Now what follows is a heartbreak. Ah Devastation! Next is the comparatively better part of the novel, when our hero discovers a side hero, his best friend. The friendship is sweet and has laughable moments. What ahead? Well, go and live through the torture!
Overall, it gives the flavour of some B-grade movie. High time these contemporary writers realize that relating to youth doesn't just mean being sexobsessed, or well obsexed, whatever sounds better! Liked the few witty parts in the surrounding friendship sub-plots, even if it seemed forced. More like whiffs of fresh air amidst the stench. It's an easy read, so thankfully didn't take up much of my time.
The only thing worth reading in this book is the title. Do not put yourself through mental torture by even "trying" to read this book. I definitely deserve an award for completing such a senseless novel. The author tries very hard to show "thats how we youngsters are" but fortunately in reality...we are way sorted out. After reading wonderful books by indian authors like Ahmed Faiyaz, Chetan Bhagat and Preeti Shenoy, i should have stopped right there and not ventured further! A serous waste of both time and money!
u need to have great will-power To complete those 230 pages!:-( The book was really reeally boring one!!
Durjoy duta really needs to learn grammer coz. several grammetical mistakes are committed in the book. Dirty mind of the author all time describes of porn stuffs which is falsely supposed as interesting factor bt gives u a headache!!
u need a great courage and will power to read 230 pages of this book!!!!Only 50-70 pages were the motivating factors that made me read this whole book..
If these kind of books can get published then I should get my class 6 to class 10 English essays published as well. They have better plot and are much better written than this.. uh.. well.. I can't really call it a novel now can I?
Simply delhi love story but as a young author i really appreciated his work. I just completed it in a day or half. It was not a extraordinary read but still you can read it and definitely, it will give you a long lasting smile, if you had such kinda interesting college life. One sentence which i like the most was when avantika told deb that you will never get the pants ironed if you dont take them off. It has humor with sense:)
Situated in the happening capital of Delhi, ‘Ofcourse I Love You…’ is a love story of Debashish Roy, popularly known as Deb. Although, he believes he isn’t much of a looker, he still represents the ultimate playboy! An engineering student who doesn’t take career seriously, loves to party and is in a ceaseless relationship with the term ‘break ups.
After all the relationships that Deb has had, when he first encounters Avantika, he gets completely bowled over. For him, it is LAFS – Love At First Sight that is. The female protagonist – Avantika, but naturally Deb’s love interest, is a confident, independent, witty girl, and absolutely gorgeous! Love blossoms after a while, and is crushed as well! Leaving the student life behind, unemployment rears its ugly head, people move on and Deb is left all lost and lonely.
From the time Deb had his first crush, till the day he has his last, ‘Ofcourse I Love You’ is a journey of love, life, relations, and all the possible screw-ups! A journey, that is one hell of a roller coaster ride; a journey, to which every individual can relate; a journey, which every reader has lived through at some stage of their life; and a journey, which leaves you completely intrigued.
Not once in the entire novel will your attention get diverted! The writing style is simply charismatic! The language is conversational and the scenarios are narrated vividly, the characters, simply make you fall in love with them! For first time writers, these two have set very high standards! The titles of every chapter are fascinating. It simply persuades you to read the entire novel at one go!
This is earlier books by durjoy and maanvi and if mills and boons is considered these book are on that line, a guy who in 2008 Delhi is having a good time at college friends were having him for fun and treats or gossips and they are having a eventful College life, until he meet a his best friend Vernita boyfriend Tanmay sister Avantika came to life and things change ,Deb and Avantika get instantly clicked they had first brush with her brother then her Ex boyfriend who was influencial man with contact and have attributes of Avantika had a bad past drugs and her bad relationship, but life gives chances but due to misunderstanding , she went away from him listening to her spirit of living guru advice but life gave them chance after Deb redemption and life gave them purpose through a blog. Story have issue that fat man is ogled by many, And beautiful one have trust issues, powerful met the dreadful fate.
First let me warn you don't keep loads of expectations with this book.Never judge a book by its cover is the best thing that i can say over here.Okay the title and the cover is good enough. I actually wasted my money on this book. Was expecting something worthwhile from the authors (who are passouts from DCE and SRCC). "A Disappointing Book" is what I can say about this book.
The book is way boring and lame. May be because the book was published few years back and was probably a hit back then but I read it now and I found it to be redundant. I would rather watch a rom-comedy series than read this.
Its about Deb and Avantika. Deb is a stud and had been in numerous relation ships. But avantika is his dream girl comes true. It’s story of deb. And his relationships and his friends. Unlike Chetan Bhagat, Durjoy datta’s books have weak motivation and aim. Weak storyline. It’s all about being a stud or sexy as long as the book counts. Weak plot seems to be dutta’s specialty. I don’t know how this book made the national bestseller! This one is super slow and dragging. Low kicks is what I’d say about datta’s ideas and imagination. He thinks his sex-words are the best. With the unwitting humor and explanations, it seems he’s trying to compete with western erotica’s. This is not even semi-erotica. The presentation is broken mostly and it’s hard to understand what is going on sometimes. Datta writes without an aim. This book was simple with no story at all. All for unmemorable story, if there is any, and just pleasure reading.(without any pleasure overall)It’s like he’s a terrible story teller. Anyway, I enjoyed some parts of the book.Especially the last part. And had a 2 points to learn about boys. The last part was a blast. As if he just wanted to finish off the story as soon as possible.
First book in the series of Deb & Avantika. So Deb firmly believes that relationship is just a key for getting laid until Avantika, beautiful-just-out-of-drugs lass crosses his path. They're getting into a relationship where Deb's past and Avantika's past are quarreling to mess up the present & future for the betterment of us, the readers :P Ultimately, listening to Guruji's advice, Avantika dumps Deb ! You're-single-and-out-of-drugs & I'm-happy-go-lucky-youngster-and-I-don't-care-about-anybody, so-let's-fall-in-love. This is the story line with one stupid Guruji acting as villian and screwing the phase. And believe me, this book is shelved under the national best-sellers. If you have hell-lot-of free time to waste off, don't miss out this book :P
When I started the book, I was slightly shocked. As the blurb claims, it reveals the "dirty secrets" behind most relationships. And since I preferred something not so on-the-face, I decided to not like this book. But the story started to actually take some form, and by the end, I was in love with it. Looking forward to reading its sequel..
It is very nice novel and very well written. Different from the ordinary thinking and definitely above average. Liked the narration. n the story was really touching. Over all a nice book n a must read.
Didn't quite enjoy it. Nothing too different about the style of writing and nothing different about the story. Like the script of a hindi movie. And not a very interesting one! One of the 'me-too' after Chetan Bhagat. Unfortunately, not everyone who graduates from an engineering or MBA college and has lived a colourful teenage life has it in him to put it into words that are interesting to read!
While reading, I was kind of bored in mid and after that just completed it somehow. Well, one time read but prefer not to. I didn't find anything mind-boggling or interesting. Just a guy's transformation from a playboy to one women man.
I remember reading this long time back and this book was the reason I stopped reading Indian Love Stories.. . . A playboy Falls in love Girl leaves him He gets depressed Girl comes back Steamy sex Both decide to stay together Happy Ending But the guy still continues staring at other girls ass . .. Such stories inspires people to keep having fun and falling in love and don't do anything for your life.. . . Hate such stories
infatuation, break-ups, switch overs and same all over, again.
Debasish Roy, a Bengali lad gets into Delhi Engineering College, into Mechanical Branch. Since he is just not interested in his studies, and always craving to get recognized among the lot, due to his hefty and ugly personality, he loses out in his exams as well as placements. He gets into relationships or the so called Love, with many girls, but dumps them or gets dumped equally fast, as soon as he satisfies his sexual pleasures with them. His friends Shrey, Vernita, Yoginder etc are no less. Finally, he comes across the most beautiful, sexy Avantika, who just gets rehabilitated from drug abuse through a spiritual Guru. It starts with infatuation but matures to true and passionate love, fuelled with wild sex and kissing. Avantika one day suddenly feels that Deb is stuck with her bad luck, just like all her other ex-boy friends, and breaks her relationship, by taking up a job and walks out of Deb’s life. The dilapidated Deb joins a Government organization through his dad, where he meets Amit, whom he helps to get his love of his life. Amit gets to know about Deb’s failed love story through his blog and contacts Avantika to know the real story. He narrates the position of Deb and how much how much he still longs for her. Avantika realizes her mistake and reunites with Deb through a surprise visit to his home with the published book of his story captured from his blog and also remuneration cheque from the publisher. Both live happily ever after. A good book to read.
This agglomeration of ink squiggles made to resemble letters of words in a sentence telling a story are not even those - squiggles of ink can be beautiful. The thought process of the protagonist is probably one of the reasons why Delhi has had more rapes than any other Indian city. On youtube can be found comments like "this porn has good music", and songs deserving that. This book, is similar - only much of the porn has no story or necessity of presence. Spoilers here - not that there is much of a story....
I couldn't stop reading the book, as I didn't want to prolong the feeling of wasting my time. The only good part of the book is towards the last third. A few of the scenes described do bring a few smiles and/or laughs.
don't even think about it. I don't know why I thought about picking up yet another contemporary Indian author. They've always disappointed me.
It's a boring read of how a not even average looking guy ( who is utterly insensitive in the matters of love and has had more girlfriends and hook ups than the exams in his college) falls in love with this stunningly-beautiful-past-drug-addict girl who still hasn't recovered from the heartbreak her ex-ex boyfriend gave her( which was btw 2 years ago). They meet through mutual friends and fall in love in the second meeting( while the guy still has a girlfriend who's about to tell her parents about their affair). They meet daily in spite of the restrictions by the girl's brother as well as her current boyfriend( yeah...!! even she has one). They start dating and break up with their present dates. Somehow in the middle of the story the girl realises that she's unlucky for everyone around her and leaves the boy "for his own good" (as if...!!!). Then in the end she realises that she's been wrong all along and returns to him and they live happily ever after....yeyyy!!!
Seriously if you're any kind of reader don't even think about reading this book. It's pure nothingness.....
