Sorry! This book is no longer available to read.


The media had already named it Gurughantal, a mysterious mobile application that yields whatever is desired.

Three unsuspecting boys - Sandeep, Anish and Sougata steal it from the mobile phone of Ameira, the girl of their dreams.

The motive - to fulfill their wishes.

As Gurughantal sucks them into a vortex of murder, deceit and horrors, they realise that their wishes are made in hell.

Awesome job. Crazy plot, out of this world characters (at least the three chapter I just read) and fast pace. These are the requirements of a new age novel - and you have aced it. There are a couple of editing errors - however, baring this I feel that you should be proud of what you have done here.
On the flip side - story line seems pretty close to 'The Mine' by Arnab Ray, but I put this comment here, just because there are not many negatives in your manuscript.

Its a racy pacy read. This one really moves fast and there are lot of laughs in between. One of the most wittiest stuff I have read till now.

"Nice characterization! Of all the characters, Sougata caught my fancy the most. In the second chapter, the story moves fantastically between the past and the present and discusses his predicament. But, Ameira as the enigmatic female steals the show in chapter three leaves me yearning for more. Good work!!

Unique twist in the start itself ! The character of Ameira is quite mysterious and makes me want to know more as to where is the story going. Some interesting lines like "...a heady cocktail of Lara Croft meet Cindrella soaking in a big bottle of Benadryl" were simply hilarious. An engrossing page turner that immediately transports you into the world of Sougata, Anish, Sandeep and Ameira. Want to read the entire story immediately.

Really novel storyline! Highly unconventional start!! Loved lines like "Godzilla on steroids", "leaking mutant" and "their hammering heartbeats would put a heavy metal concert to shame". The humour track is unique and hilarious. Very very different from anything I have read till now. Highly engrossing stuff!

It starts with a rocky pace but gets interesting while you read on, not the usual run on the mill(Mills & Boons) type. I like the dialogues which is typical guy talk and would want to read on and see how the book develops.

Very interesting story line! Nice pace and believable dialogues. And funny too! Talk about injecting bums without prescriptions … ha ha ha …. And I thoroughly enjoyed the bits about boys ‘surrendering to Paresh’s analysis’, ‘grain in a grinding machine’, ‘soaking in a big bottle of … Benadryl (of all the things to soak in!)’. For no reason at all, I found myself liking Baba, Sougata, Sandeep and Anish 
But, as is becoming a standard feature in all my comments, the language element needs rework, especially in the descriptive parts. I wonder if I am being pompous when I comment on language because writers have every right to innovate in the language department (and I did love your turn of phrases), but then I did feel that there was much room for improvement.
Let me explain with an example. ‘The other man narrowed his brows’ should ideally be ‘the other man lowered his brows’, or ‘the other man’s brows came together’, or ‘the other man knitted his brows’, or simply ‘the other man frowned’ … depending on what you want him to do :). It is just that ‘narrowing brows’ is not a phrase I have come across earlier and it gets me wondering … is the writer hinting at a sinister frown or a perplexed one or just a tired one?
Second example – things are usually clutched tightly … not ‘sternly’.
Third example – ‘right now it was unsure to predict whether the bullet had done it’ … ‘unsure to predict’ doesn’t quite come together …
Siddarth, I know I have given a long speech instead of a review and I am really sorry about that! As I have mentioned in another review comment, I don’t get things right the first time either … because I am so focused on the story that the language goes out the window. So once the story is done, I sit down and just edit, edit, edit, and then edit some more. Boring job … par kya karein!!
PS - My manuscript is actually quite nice now . I would love to see the next version of yours.

Interesting concept. The author had demonstrated originality and not tried to follow a populist trend. What I liked about the writing is that there was a lot of dialogue and less prose. It keeps things moving along and you want to keep reading on. It takes quite an imagination to come up with and then execute on paper some of the scenes, scenarios and characters depicted. All the best to the author.
