Those Pricey Thakur Girls by Anuja Chauhan

Anuja Chauhan had a very successful debut novel. Those Pricey Thakur Girls is her third novel.

The story is about five alphabetically named Thakur sisters, with the fourth of them, Debjani Thakur, being the central protagonist. The novel is set in 80's, the pre-liberalization era. Debjani has just landed a job as a news reader in DD. Soon she meets Dylan, the journalist. Well the rest of the book goes to this "He loves me, he loves me not,..." loop, with dollops of family drama, teenage perplexities,  (facts and fiction about) Sikh riots,etc. thrown in. No prizes for guessing what happens in the end...!!!

After reading the Zoya Factor, I didn't think much before buying this novel. But I may not buy another book by Ms. Chauhan, I may rent it though.

2.5 out of 5.
