Book Blurb:

Q. What happens when three ambitious, high-achieving, 20-something Mumbaikars become New Yorkers?

A. Madness.

 

Zipping through life’s ups and downs like a high-speed elevator during rush hour, buddies Shri, Shanks, and Neel hold on to each other, and their sanity, with a bro-hood bonding that chipkos them together, fevicol se.

 

Neel’s the driven hedge fund guy, with a weakness for scotch and women. Tam Brahm Shanks, a techie, falls for the wrong girl. Good Son Shri, a banker, holds a secret he means to take to his grave. Their intertwined lives buzz with high-voltage drama — explosive secrets, super-charged romances, and a-fuse-a-minute meltdowns.

There’s alcohol-fueled passion, Devdas style. Inter-racial hook-ups. Even a fake affair, because money can’t buy the real thing. When their skyscraper-sized dreams are tested, this desified saga of friends in Manhattan is like the city’s rapid transit express subway line. You won’t want any stops in between.

 

My Review:

From Mumbai to Manhattan, this book is a journey of three guys and their bromance!

This book seems like something straight off F.R.I.E.N.D.S sitcom minus the central perk…but i’m not the one to complain…who does not want a little bit of F.R.I.E.N.D.S nostalgia now and then?

The story starts with three quintessential Mumbaikars trying to make it in Manhattan..leading busy but uncomplicated lives. Their lives suddenly take a turn with the entry of rich heiress Shefali, and along with her trails the whole entourage of people which leads to a whole lot of masala being added to their lives!

This book is not for intellectual simulation, but for general light breezy read. 

Best enjoyed with a cup of tea and a beautiful day 😉

(p.s. Thank you FINGERPRINT! publishers for sending me a copy 🙂 )
