It's Got to Be Love by Prashant Kaul : Book Review


IT’S GOT TO BE LOVE by PRASHANT KAUL :
 BOOK REVIEW

I have never been a fan of love stories in general and those by Indian writers in particular—not to mention, I have not even read many since a long time. However, recently, I was handed over this book, IT’S GOT TO BE LOVE by Prashant Kaul for a review. At first, I was not willing to read it, but then decided otherwise. I do not know if – or in what ways – this book is different from most other romance novels, as I have not read many, but certainly IT’S GOT TO BE LOVE is a thoroughly entertaining book. 
 
The protagonist, Dev, is a University student, who falls in love with a girl named Carol while ragging her batch of students. Dev has two friends, Vikram – who loses some of his memory after an accident, and his friends jokingly call him Ghajini since then – and Amrish – whose first interaction with Dev was not very friendly. They are his closest friend, nonetheless, throughout the story. Not to put forth much of spoiler, I would say, the transition of Dev’s love from Carol to Vaani, another girl in another city, where Dev goes for his higher studies, is not a smooth one. It creates a lot of trouble for them all, but Vaani is an understanding girl and does not give up easily on Dev.

Overall, It’s Got to Be Love by Prashant Kaul is an excellent companion for spending time alone, reading some light romance. The novel grips the reader from its very first page itself, and while it seems to loosen its hold a bit in the middle, it grips even tighter in the latter part. The choice of words is utterly simple, and so is the structure of sentences, that is to say, it does not make it a point of necessity for the reader to have any certain experience of reading novels.

If you are looking for some fresh voice in the Romance genre of novels, then you should definitely take this book up. The story is successful in lightening the reader’s mind, and providing a good time reading.
