Plot & Review
The story has a reincarnation.
Not my cuppa tea. I don’t really buy the whole reincarnation thing, not in present times, for sure.
There are two couples, in present and in past, reminding you of the movie Love Aaj Kal. It even refers to a Bollywood movie Raabta which is based on the reincarnation theme. It made me google if the writer has written the movie script. She hasn’t.
Apart from the reincarnation bits, the plot lacks any suspense and does not hold reader’s attention. Because the reader, that’s me, has already lost interest.
A quick read but doesn’t leave you happy.
