This is a story of love, friendship, betrayal, and revenge. Neil and Gauri are a loving married couple, being Gauri the most understanding and mature one and Neil being the messy one. Both of them have their set of very good friends to fool around with and lean back on when time needs them to. Tom, Jerry, and Jasoos are the friends Neil can count on at any time. Mehr is the pillar of support for Gauri.
Their lives were quite normal until they set out for a combined trip with all of their friends to Cuba. There Neil and his friends meet Drishti and her husband Somesh by mere accident and everything changes in all of their lives. After coming back from the trip Drishti gets abducted by someone. Drishti and Somesh were already dealing with a troubled marriage. She even suspected that Somesh is having an affair with someone. But then Drishti falls in love with Neil.
Was it really an accident when Drishti and Neil met for the first time or was it a setup? Who was behind that? How did Neil mess up so bad that he gets imprisoned? Was it only Neil’s actions that his life is so messed up or someone else is there plotting against him? Will he be able to save his marriage with Gauri at the end? What happens to Drishti? Read the book if you want to find out.
The story is good but the narration is really very bad. The main story starts with “A hundred days ago” but I couldn’t join up the counting of days of past and present. It sounded a bit weird to know all the details of others lives and actions in first person narration. And weirder was when detailed descriptions of intimacy and intercourse came up while Neil was narrating the story to his boss Ganga. Also, for a senior executive working with a top brand, Neil gets a lot of time to hang around with friends and then go for back to back vacations abroad.
In a nutshell, the story was promising but didn’t live up to my expectation. It is really messed up.
