This book includes love, drama, fights,tears, reunion and finally dance. Perfect ingredients for a Bollywood movie.
1.I'm in love it Dimple's mom. She's exactly what I would say an Indian mom. She's strict, competitive , hilarious and totally lovable.
2. Hilarious; undoubtedly it's fun to read and becomes addictive.
3. Dimple comes off as cold bitch at first during the pace of time you end up connecting to her. She's a whirlwind of emotions.
1. Little unrealistic. Getting engaged at the age of 18 - 19 is too early for the educated crowd.
2. Rishi is too goody shoes and little delusional.
3. Too much like a bollywood movie.
Final verdict- Lovable, hilarious, refreshing read. You definitely experience all the emotions.
Let me tell all non-Indians one thing, arranged marriages at 18 are unheard off, they r not part of the modern culture and when they happen and oh boy they do.. They in that case happen because there are usually a number of side stories and reasons behind it.
And let's get on to Rishi!! Ahh the charming Indian prince..Too good to be true. I love him and I seriously wish guys would take some lessons from him..
I can rant forever on the things that are wrong with this book and things that are right and great!! But advice to anyone reading it,don't take it seriously believe me just don't. Moms don't go around telling us girls to wear makeup or good clothes(except on occasions).A number of people are not vegetarians and finding one is sorta a rarity. And girls like Dimple aren't forced into marriages (maybe some are but I don't thing at 18) but as she said in the book- she is an American.. A girl stuck between having to let go of her old identities and take on new ones.. The social media scare was quite true..
So read it, I'm sure many people will love it but don't give a lot of thought on the representation methods. It's just story about a fierce girl and a charming boy.. I wish there was a movie on it. I would love to watch..
Rishi is this pure little boy who is literally made of everything good plus toss in some innocence and a romantic heart. Seriously, where can I find this boy in real life? And Dimple on the other hand is this fierce and passionate girl who is strictly against marriage and doesn't want a relationship, especially one set up by her parents. But Rishi has already fallen in love with her and is all ready to marry her so Dimple might have lost it a bit and thrown an iced coffee in his face.
When they're stuck in the same programme Dimple feels a little bad and decided they can stick together and be friends for a while? But too late she find herself falling for him. Confused whether she wants this or not Dimple is set for a long journey of making new relationships, learning life lessons and helping people explore their dreams.
This is the cutest romance ever and Rishi is such a sweetie, pretty much everyone falls in love with him. You have got to read this book!
PS: If you're Indian you'll love the desi references casually thrown in there!
I have even decided the cast in my head:
Dimple- Deepika Padukone
Rishi- Ayushman Khuranna
All tracks and background music by Arijit.
Yes, that's right. This book is literally like reading a modern bollywood romance!
