Just Missed by Himanshu Bhatia

Blurb-

While we try to arrange marriages by matching horoscopes and compatibilities, we forget at times that “marriages are made in heaven”. We all love to say that Bollywood romantic movies are silly, and that they go overboard in their depiction of love, we actually secretly fantasize to be characters in them. Siddharth Gupta (lovingly called Sid) is an ISB alumnus, who is an ambitious perfectionist. He wants to go up the corporate ladder at a faster pace than his age, and is doing pretty well. In his matrimonial search, Sid meets Shreya Malhotra, who herself is an IIM graduate and very career oriented. He finds Shreya the epitome of the “Beauty with Brains” tag and develops a crush on her almost instantly. Shreya and Sid are going steady towards what looks like a ‘soon to be married’ state, but when has life been that simple! On her way to Bangkok for her friend’s bachelorette party, Shreya meets Shivam Malhotra, an IITian, with a living flirting tiger inside him. While Shivam’s cheesy lines ignite hatred in Shreya, it’s only the beginning of a story that doesn’t end in Thailand. “Just Married Missed!” is the journey of a practical arranged crush, chased by crazy filmy love.

My views

The story of Shreya, Siddharth and Shivam. A love triangle of the characters, very much bollywoodish. Shreya and Siddharth getting along throught matrimonial site amd then Shivam neets Shreya while travelling. Shivam being a flirt, annoyed Shreya and the story goes on.

The good thing about the book was the writing. The narration from different point of views made the story progressive and interesting.

Author has explained all the characters well. Amongst all, i liked siddharth the most. Also, Shivam’s character was strong.

Plot was obvious but smooth.

Rating- 3.5/5
