Cover– The cover of the book is an amazing blend of colours andtwi figues could be noticed who are man and a woman standing opposite each other.
Title– The title has a great significance and the meaning ofthe title is cleared in the ending chapters.
Plot– Varsha has woven a well constructed plot which captivates the readers to know more and more. Sneha’slife takes a turn when she comes across her old ally Nikhil Chandel and his cousin Gayatri who happens to be Aditya’s ex fiance and has come back in her best friend’s life to destroy their wedding. In this course, Sneha tries to take Nikhil’s help who is a rude, adamant, arrogant man and they both have their plate of histories. Things become interesting during the course of journey.
Theme– Well, this book has variety of themes. The very first theme is of friendship between Nandani and Sneha. They have been best of friends since they were in school and are ready to help each other at any cost. Nandani always tries to hook her best friend whereas Sneha does every possible thing to save her Sethani’s wedding. Even she crushes her ego and meets Nikhil whom she hates from the core of her heart.
The other theme is of motherhood.Sneha is a single mom who gives the love of mother as well as a father. She tried her level best to make her kiddo happy. And with the cutest responses one can make out that Advey also loves her. She feels complete with him.
One cannot forget theme of love in this chapter. The first lovers are Nandani and Aditya. They are married and are madly in love. They respect each other and at times rule each other. Aditya is overprotective towards Nandani which pisses her off and when she confesses her feelings, he understands her point and allow her to start her Advertising Agency. Furthermore, Aditya is a loyal husband who didn’t cheat his wife despite of being such temptations from Gayatri.
The other set of lovers are Sneha and Nikhil. Yes, from the start they hate each other but when they unite to help Nandani and Aditya, things began to change between them. They go through a heart change and are madly in love but both never accepts it on face. When Sneha notices Advey’s attachment with Nikhil, somewhere feelings of love starts to bloom in her heart. They also undergo misunderstandings which are created by Nikhil’s ex wife Alisha and her friend Mona. But in the end they also unite.
Characterisation– Varsha’s characters are mixture of round and flat characters. Sneha’s character is being beautifully portrayed along with Nandani and Nikhil’s character. I know its hard to change the language when you describe about certain characters but she has made a perfect synchorization between the characters. Even Aditya and Advey’s characters were impressive. Advey’s character seemed difficult since once needs a lot of research for that and she has done her homework.
Villains like Gayatri, Alisha and Mona were also being looked upon perfectly. All have their roles to play and nothinglooked muddled up. The minor characters like Amla, Pradeep and the boss were also the key for such a perfect portrayal.
Style– Varsha is unique in her writing. She makes readers laugh and cry at the same time. Not only this, her crazy play with mispronounced abuses makes us share fits of laughter. The language is simple, lucid and clear. There are less errors and more flow of emotions. Next, the name of chapters are intriguing. To add more, the author has used mixture of sentences and has taken up third person narrative.
Spoiler– The names used for Nandani confused me in the beginning like Sethani and Kulta. I thought Sethani was a different person first. This could have been avoided.
