BOOK REVIEW 8 - ANYTHING FOR YOU MA'AM


NOVEL - ANYTHING FOR YOU MAM (AN IIT'IAN'S LOVE STORY!)
     
AUTHOR - TUSHAR RAHEJA

GENRE - ROMANCE FICTION 

THE PLOT

Tejas Narula, an IITian, a fun loving guy, insanely falls in love with his sister’s friend Shreya Bhargava. She is shifted to Chennai and Tejas wants to meet her. His college arranges for ten days Industrial trip, and Tejas plans in all means to bunk the whole of it and go to Chennai to meet his ladylove. On this verge, he tries all adventures which turn into misadventures. 

Thus begins Tejas’s extremely eventful and humorous journey where Mr. Fate pits him, as only he can, against Professor Sidhu who would do anything to stop him; and conjures a host of interesting characters who travel some part of his journey with him weaving together extremely witty plots….and well, Mr. Fate, it seems, has more roles in his ingenious mind for "Biobull" than just remain a rocking bus.

MY VERDICT

A very simple tale. The touch of bollywood style remains throughout. Just gets you going through the usual love drama. The author has good narrative skills and a flowing style with humor. The story seems realistic but in a few chapters it deviates away. The scenarios where Tejas fights with his sister (Palak), flirts with his sister’s friends are quite funny. The professor’s episode was amazing. The first few pages were real slow. The author has neatly written the romance story without adding vulgarity to it. Happened to pick this book after reading some positive reviews, nevertheless it failed to impress me. Not that I hated it, but it was a not-so-gripping-tale and I completed within few hours.

Very comical & cinematic! !

A page-turner and a one time light read..
