Review by – Nehali Lalwani

Blurb of the book: 

When your dreams are tainted with lies and deceit, you have no other choice but to walk to the other end of the corridor.

Leela has nothing extraordinary about her except the dream to become famous. Her desires take wings when she gets married to a handsome boy from a respectable family in Delhi. But her dreams are shattered even before they have a chance to take flight.

She happens to meet two friends from a long forgotten past, which infuses hope and opens new avenues to realize her dormant aspirations. Leela delves into previously unexplored paths of deception and forbidden passions that only make her stronger.

In an attempt to rediscover herself, she falls in love with life and with herself but her life takes a sudden turn again… No matter what, Leela will continue to chase her dreams. Where does this journey take her?

Cover and Title of the book:

The cover image has been kept realistic and makes it worthwhile for a reader. The title adds up to the curiosity as what to expect from the book.

My view on THE OTHER END OF THE CORRIDOR:

Leela Chopra is the lead character of the story. This story is all about how she juggles between being a dreamer, aspirant RJ, a middle class girl and overall an ambitious lady. She shares her journey from being a girl to a lady; a journey from being a wife to a responsible mom and a voyage from claiming respect to snatching respect.

Leela will never leave you alone throughout the story. Sujata’s awe-inspiring writing style keeps you glued to her. I would like to congratulate and appreciate Authroess for penning down such a sensitive issue with this simplicity. In simple words THE OTHER END OF CORRIDOR can be described as – Simplicity at it’s best.

Sujata discusses the plight of an adjusting wife who loves her husband and leaves no stone unturned to make him happy. How she struggles hard to save her married life and her self respect. How her thrust for, being independent and rich demands her to be fake in front of the whole world. How social media play a vital role in making her realize her own value. How dreams of her decides to be her strength and As a result, she carves her own niche that is loveable but at the same time is vulnerable.

With every page there is a new challenge and with every word there is a feeling which lives in front of the reader. Right from the pleasure to the obscurity, it traverses a path which many have tread upon and faltered. It rolls out the finest and the nastiest out of the human psyche. The character’s contribution fills up all the necessary spaces to bind the story together. The bold approach and the complete idea work and makes it useful for the readers too.

Conclusion:

The book has utter practicality which is certainly the USP of this wonderful tale. The description in the book by the of the author is undeniably admirable. The language, rapidity and simplicity will be surely admired and appreciated by the masses.

All in all the story out of the blue comes hard and fast and hit at the right places. The 238 page book is undoubtedly appealing. The pace varies, but the lingering effect makes it a gem of a story. It is an absolutely enthralling roller coaster of sentiments. There are no flaws and negative points are hard to point out. It inspires and coalesces, the realism and the fake version the love and the anger, the innocence and the savagery it has all and evermore to it. The book has utter practicality which is certainly the USP of this wonderful tale. The description in the book by the of the author is undeniably admirable. The language and rapidity and simplicity will be surely admired and appreciated by the masses.

The book renders the best of what one expects in a story line.

I repeat, It’s a masses story.
