Book Review - “Grave Profits” by Tejendra Sharma


       Originally written in Hindi language, this book consist of 12 stories, which are, Color of Passport, Homeless, The Window, Why, Oh! Why?, The Telephone Line, The Link, Come Again… !, The Matching Color, Black & White, The Ghost of Sin Perceived, Hurt Me Tender, Grave Profits. And translated by Gurcharan Singh Thind, Eerma D Bajaj and Juta Austin.

       My personal favorites are - Color of Passport, Why, Oh! Why?, The Telephone Line, Black & White and the Ghost of Sin Perceived. Tejender Ji’s writing is so mind boggling that it with definitely shock you by the time you reach the end. Gurcharan Signh Ji was successful in bringing out the real emotion with which the story was written.

       It was always the last line in every story which hit me so hard that it would take days to start next one. I tend to forget the world while reading his work & it’s the best quality a writer can possess. So, give it a try, you won’t be disappointed.

Movie Review : 2 States

                                   Director : Abhishek Varman

                 Cast : Arjun Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Amrita Singh, Revathy,

                           Shiv Kumar Subramaniam and Ronit Roy


       Based on the national bestseller with the same name by Chetan Bhagat, this movie is a complete package. Abhishek Varman has done a pretty nice job as the debutant director. Arjun is the star of the show, he was phenomenal and Alia was nice on her part too. Revathy and SK Subramaniam were amazing playing Tamilians on screen & (not to mention), I couldn’t have pictured anyone else other than Amrita Singh playing the character of a typical Punjabi mother. Ronit Roy was seriously amazing on his part. The music by Shankar Ehsaan Loy is fabulous, as expected.

       The story basically revolves around two lovers with different cultural backgrounds, trying to convince there parents for their marriage. If you have read the book then I must tell you that the movie is the exact copy. It’s like, what you have read in the book, it’s all there in visual.

       So, if you have read the book and are not a movie person, then don’t watch it but otherwise, it’s a great time pass. Watching it with your family or even your partner would be a great decision.
