A Bollywood potboiler in print!

A still from Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Ram Leela
At any other point in time, Ram Leela might have been suffice to satisfy my craving for a Bollywood masala movie. But not yesterday. I watched it till the interval, taking in the grandeur of the sets and the explosion of colours on screen. I loved the garbas and the attires (the kedia looks so cool on Ranveer). What I missed was the story. So, with a lot of disappointment, I turned to my Kindle. And there it was! A fast-paced, masala story with sex, politics, mafia set in Delhi, UP, Mumbai and Dubai, with just the right dose of Mumbaiyya Hindi. Shobhaa De, I like you, for you gave me Sethji, when I needed it the most.
