Well thats the novel I read recently. To be honest I had a lot of expectations from the writer of Five point someone. But after reading the novel I felt it was run of the mill stuff. Infact it was as if I was watching a Bollywood movie. No doubt the novel highlights the problems people face when they love someone from the other caste or state but the way the protagonist wins over the love of his in-laws was too movie like. There may be plenty of youngsters who face similar situations in life. They love but it never culminates into marriage. The reason being parents. I fail to understand when two mature people decide to spend the entire life with each other, why others interfere or stop them. Why is age, status, caste and money more important than feelings? Do these things decide the future happiness of a person? Can two people belonging to the same caste and community only live happily? Can a girl coming from a filthy rich family ensure the happiness and success of a boy after marriage?
Here I am not supporting love marriage or going against arranged marriage. It hardly matters whether a marriage is arranged or love , what matters is the happiness of the two people who will spend the entire live with each other and on whom the success or failure oa a relationship depends.
