'Logically Stupid, But Love' has been the book I've been reading from past three days. Yes, I finished reading the book in three days. It must be normal for an avid reader to read a book in three days, or a few hours at the minimum. Well, facts apart.
Let's jump on to the review.
Kartik: Yes, I want to be successful, and that's not a crime. Trust me, I too would have wanted the same as Ms. Stupid, but I can't toss away my hard work of years for a girl. We would have had a beautiful love story had she not been my boss's daughter.
Sahana: I know he's ambitious and doesn't know his heart well. But I'm sure one day Mr. Logical will come to my way of thinking, and we'll have a beautiful life together thereafter.
He flirted with her for five days; she waited for him for five years, only to be shattered irrecoverably one day. Logic seems to be winning the battle until destiny refuses to move on and adamantly brings them face to face again.
In life's moments of struggle and comfort, the heart and mind must join hands to combat.
A love story dedicated to the generation that never values what comes easy. Wish a few logics were a little less stupid. But nevertheless… Logically Stupid, That's Love.
The characters in the book are as follows:
Kartik Brar, a boy next door from Amritsar, who is all set to fly his career to the paramount. At a very tender age, he became the mainstay of DataMagica and became the COO of the organization. His inclination towards achieving his goals was keen and discreet, and he achieved them effectively and with full efficiency. But, the times they are a changing, and he met a girl as beautiful as a fairy, who captivated his heart at a wedding where his boss was staying and Kartik, too.
Sahana, a Delhiite, is a daughter of one of the wealthiest businessman. She is parties like an animal, least interested in academics, and is as beautiful as a fairy. Yes, she belongs to a high-class family, but she has a heart of gold. And like every girl, she dreams of having a 'Prince Charming' who will sweep her off her feet and treat her like a princess all the time.
Ajit Khurana is Sahara's dad. He is a responsible father, a loving husband, and an epic leader. Because of Karthik, Ajit's company, DataMagica became tremendously successful. Ajit only has one major problem in his life -- how to handle his adamant daughter. Whenever he thinks of getting Sahana married, he lands up in one problem or the other.
Alka Khurana is Sahara's mother. She is a tender mother and a loving wife.She is quite innocent by nature.
Meet Karthik's parents, Gauri and Arminder Brar. Gauri is always anxious about her son, she always wants his son to find himself a life partner. Like a typical Punjabi mother, she is loud and shouts at her children all the time.
Arminder Brar is the coolest father ever. He is calm and composed all the time, also, he is fun loving, too.
Vinayak 'Vinny' Brar is Kartik's younger brother. He is a brat of Brar family. He respects his parents to the core, especially for his mother. He also helped his brother, Karthik, to fight for his lady love.
The book has very adorably showcased the feelings portrayed by the characters. Neither too sophisticated nor too masala, the author keenly considered Indian mindset and beautifully framed an exceptionally simple yet one of the greatest love stories ever. The book typically portrayed how normally an Indian love story looks like.
