Falling in love is the easy part but making your family love the person you have decided to marry is the hardest part as Chetan Bhagat shows in his novel.
The author does a good job conveying the
message when a person marries someone outside their cast, religion and culture. He portrays the characters in such a way where you feel that you are in their shoes. The novel starts out with a simple love story between the two main characters but as they start planning their future together we get to know the problems they have to face.
In all this novel was too "filmy" and predictable, it is better off as being made into a movie rather than a book. He tried to put in an "American" feel in this book but he did not succeed in doing so. He had me hooked in the beginning but towards the middle and end it felt that the author was trying to finish the novel as fast as possible.
