Paperbackpages. Ami Patel rated it it was amazing Dec 24, Putul is a firebrand woman. I thoroughly appreciate the author for having accomplished this seemingly impossible task of giving the readers a glimpse of what Mumbai truly is.

Compelling story, technique of story-telling is gripping and I am definetely going to look for BackSeat now! This book starts off with promise of being a different take but somehow ends up like a Bollywood movie. The characters are well portrayed but I did end up wishing that the dynamics of relationship between the three main protagonists in the book-Nikita, Vijay and Shashank had been more detailed.

The way this story has been presented is absolutely brilliant and shows a maturity which is amazing for a second book writer.
