Rooh Se Rooh Tak (Hindi) by Vinit Bansal

 

 

BLURB –

गर ना समझें तो यह महज़ एक कहानी है, एक किताब है… बाकी और किताबों की तरह, जिसे आप पढ़ते हैं और भूल जाते हैं। समझें तो एक कोशिश… उस शय के सबसे सच्चे और सुच्चे स्वरूप को जानने की जिसे हम सभी प्रेम कहते हैं। कहानी की शुरुआत होती है नील से। किस तरह से एक छोटे से शहर का सीधा-सादा सा लड़का यूनिवर्सिटी में आता है और उसकी चकाचौंध में खो जाता है। पहले ही दिन उसकी मुलाकात होती है रणदीप से- यूनिवर्सिटी का सबसे रुआबदार लड़का। दोनों दोस्ती से कुछ आगे बढ़कर एक-दूसरे को भाई समझने लगते हैं। इसी बीच नील को प्यार हो जाता है- सच्चा प्यार, अदिति से। प्यार रणदीप को भी होता है- रिया से, लेकिन एकतरफ़ा प्यार। परिस्थितियाँ कुछ यूँ करवट लेती हैं कि रिया आत्महत्या कर लेती है और जाने से पहले अपनी हत्या का इल्जाम लगा जाती है नील पर। क्या नील रणदीप को अपने बेगुनाह होने का यक़ीन दिलवा पाता है? क्या होता है जब आपका सबसे अच्छा दोस्त आपका सबसे बड़ा दुश्मन बन जाता है? क्या होता है जब प्यार सनकपन की सभी हदें पार कर जाता है? क्या होता है जब आपको प्यार और ज़िन्दगी में से किसी एक को चुनना पड़ता है? क्या नील और अदिति प्यार की उस ऊँचाई को हासिल कर पाते हैं? क्या दोनों एक हो पाते हैं? जवाब आपके हाथों में है- ‘रूह से रूह तक”।

 

 

REVIEW –

The cover depicts about love and a person being in jail. The title is really touching. The story is based on love, revenge and friendship. How a day can change your life completely. The story has alot of dramatic turns. The major characters are neel, aditi, randeep and riya. How neel saves a life and randeep becomes his best friend until  a unwanted accident takes place which shatters his life. You will really love the daily incidents described and the college days as well.  Neel is in love with Aditi.and randeep is in love with riya. Riya falls in love with neel.Riya conspires against neel to get him to love him. That one accident changes everything( read to know about the twist). It is a little long read but it is really gripping. The pace keeps on changing from fast to slow and medium. The last few pages the story moves fast. The narration is beautiful. The phrases used in the book are relatable. The characterization has been done really strong. The book is like a journey. The author has written several more books and he has done an amazing job with this book as well. Will definitely be looking forward to read more of his books.

overall -4/5.
