It's a lockdown love story that revolves around Ishaan- an RJ in Mumbai, who left home 15 years ago & Ruhi - a well-known choreographer.
Ishaan left his home in Bhopal fifteen years ago as his parents were separated. In recent times, the whole world is infected by the pandemic. A virus named Aquavirus is prevalent and due to that nationwide lockdown has been imposed. So he visited Bhopal. He met his old friend and he saw a girl named Ruhi next door and immediately fell in love with her. It was love at first sight. Read the book to unfold the further plot. The story is related to the current pandemic situation.
The climax caught me by surprise, I was not expecting that twist at all but the end did seem rushed to me. I was hoping for a sweet end, but the twist made it a lot better.
Language is simple and lucid. I loved the narration which makes it all the more appealing to read the story. This book deals with love, family, relationships. I liked the way the author has divided the chapters day wise and that too in reverse.
This book is not suitable for hardcore readers even though it was a sweet and simple read. The reason is that The book tended to be unrealistic at times. Like, a chief minister living in a normal society. Impossible. Chief ministers have bungalows with tight security. And jumping on the terrace of a chief minister without him knowing, it's something that I can't digest.
Overall, it is quite an adorable romance and although at times overdramatic, this was still a wonderful story that will bring back memories from the '90s.
