The first time they collide, he thinks she’s a con artist, she believes he’s an arrogant snob.
It takes several meetings to change their minds about each other, but eventually, Abhimanyu and Sanjana strike up a friendship that seems destined to turn into something more. He’s a rich successful businessman, however, and she’s a small-town girl who doesn’t fit into his glittering world; a fact that Abhimanyu’s mother has taken pains to point out.
Will they ever overcome the odds, or are their lives on parallel tracks, never destined to cross?
Against all Odds is a typical ‘rich-guy-falls-for-the-small-town-girl’ tale. Meet Sanjana and Abhi- our central characters of the story! Sanjana is from a small town- Kasauli, who is struggling to find a place of her own being an Interior Designer in Delhi. Whereas, Abhimanyu is a successful businessman who is from a wealthy family. The duo meet at the unexpected of the situations and he thinks of her as a con artist and she feels as if he is an arrogant stiff neck.
After a series of further encounters, they eventually fall in love. But Abhimanyu’s mother dislikes their coming together, leaving Sanjana perplexed and deciding to disappear from Abhi’s life.
Will their love be able to make it through the test of time? Will they be able to overcome all odds?
The author has portrayed the characters realistic and the chemistry between Sanjana and Abhimanyu is sizzling. The emotions are dramatically described making it an enjoyable read. There are few interesting twists and turns, but it failed to give the desired punch. The climax was a little too predictable resulting in a cliched and typical Bollywood movie plot.
Overall, it’s a light romantic read which can be picked up over a cup of coffee!
I give a 3 on 5.
