#BookReview: The Jadoo of Your Love by S. R. Saha

On the jacket:


In the final year of college, Anurag's life was falling apart he vowed never to see Aditya, his best friend of many years again. Of course, what Aditya did was unpardonable! Not just losing his best friend, Anurag's love Urmi too got married to someone else the day unemployed. Anurag got the job of a flight purser in an airline company. But life has its twists and turns and one never knows where it will take him. Anurag too could have never imagined all that happened thereafter. In this page-turner of a spellbinding novel, every reader would ride the crests and troughs of myriad emotions, love, hate, anger, depression, excitement and joy that fill life's every moment and savor the essence of true love that is mystic and magical.

Review: 

The Jadoo of your Love is about Anurag, a loner, with just one friend Mote. The story begins form his first day at college and majorly about him and his life with Mote and Urmi, his lady love. After college, Anurag starts working as a flight purser. Here come a lot of incidents which don't really lead to anywhere. 

Characters are not really well-defined and the narration is loose. Anurag is shown to set fire in an airplane and now jobless, he is shown to join Ram Gopal Verma, learn about direction and become a director himself. Some events like this, are so absurd in the book, that I was not sure how to react. 

Towards the end of the book, things rush on. Life suddenly becomes simpler for Anurag and he is reunited with Mote and Urmi. The plot is pretty aimless and one doesn't really know what the story is trying to say.

Rating: **/5
