Book review: Falling for a Bollywood Legend by Mahi Jay

"Everyone watching them could see their love enveloping them as one. A few turned their noses up in cynical amusement. But most wished they had it themselves. The forever kind of love."

Even though I am a hopeless romantic and a very big fan of romance novels, I've never really completed reading a Mills & Boons novel. Though I picked up a Mills & Boons on two occasions before, I never ended up completing reading it. This is for the very first time that I completed reading a Mills & Boons novel. And it's from the Indian author collection.

Falling For a Bollywood Legend is a steaming tale of romance between a guy who completely detests love and a girl who is wishing for a happily-ever-after kind of love story in real life. It is a story of the independent, strong and sassy PR girl, Nina and the heartthrob of B-town, Aadith. Even though he plays the role of the ultimate romantic hero in his movies, he has always been running away from any kind of emotions and commitment in real life.

He meets Nina when he hires her as a PR person he desperately needs to recreate the image spoiled by his former PR person. And ever since that day, he knew he wanted her to be a part of his life. But she wanted something beyond. And he knew he would never be ready for commitment. They take a plunge into it and what follows is a tale of steaming romance without a hint of emotion, or is it?

A contemporary story, crisply written by debut author Mahi Jay, Falling For a Bollywood Legend, is one of the finest chickflick novel by an Indian. And I say this after reading the best chickflick writers in the country. There is nothing great about the plot. But it's a chickflick, so you can't expect much. The story runs smoothly for 185 pages amidst emotional turmoil, passionate kisses, fights and the heated makeup sex that follows. It's a novel every Indian chickflick lover would love.

Rating: 4/5
