The Malhotra Bride is Sundari Venkatraman’s self published, second edition of her first novel, the first being a paperback. I have read her other book Double Jeopardy and had liked it, so was keen to read this book too. I finished reading this book in an hour or so, during my recent train journey. The Malhotra Bride is a story of arranged marriage between two rich and beautiful people, Akshay and Sunita. Both have respect for the Indian traditions and culture but are opposed to the concept of arranged marriage.

Because of the love for his parents and pressure from hers, Akshay and Sunita decide to meet, as planned by their parents. While it is love at first sight for Akshay, Sunita takes time to warm up to him. And she asks him to draw a prenuptial agreement. How things turn out for both of them, well, you need to read The Malhotra Bride to know that!

I like Sundari’s voice in the book which engages the reader in me. The characterization is good and it evokes the feeling of love or hate from the reader. Like one would absolutely hate Sunita’s father and adore her grand father and wish for a groom like Akshay!

While the narrative flows smoothly and the storyline is pretty fast paced, I found some aspects of the storyline too clichéd and some too unrealistic. The attack on Akshay came as a a bolt from the blue. The transformation of Sunita, the naive good girl to a sexy siren in a span of few days or the parents leaving the two in the hospital and retiring for the day seemed too farfetched!

Overall, The Malhotra Bride is a nice breezy romantic read with some drama and twists. A perfect read on a lazy afternoon or a short trip!

REVIEW OF THE MALHOTRA BRIDE BY SUNDARI VENKATRAMAN
From
ADIANA RAY.

Sundari sheds a spotlight on how marital relationships are formed among some business, upper class families in Mumbai. Trapped in a gilded cage, Sunita is a young vivacious girl with stars in her eyes and wants to do what so many other young girls of today want to….just explore life and create a little niche for herself with her experiences and accomplishments. Not too bad…right? Wrong, that is denied to her as it is not how her family operate. The whole family is under the thumb of her business man father and he never lets them forget it.
Akshay on the other hand also belongs to the same class of society but is lucky to be born into a forward thinking, modern household. Even though he is against the whole concept of an arranged marriage, on a whim, he decides to go and see the girl incognito and that is it… he is floored. However he has to tread carefully as Sunita is a nervous filly who is shying away from marriage as well.
The author takes us through the paces and builds up a vivid picture of the internal dynamics of these families and casts a light on society expectations too. Both the characters are well developed as are the supporting characters. The tenderness and protectiveness of Akshay, gives you a nice warm feeling and Sunita is the young wide eyed innocent, unaware of her potential. There were two minor pieces which jarred a bit with me: the first was with what Sunita does when she meets Akshay for the first time to put him off. It was all too clichéd. Though Ms Venkatraman also brings this up when she attributes embarrassment to Sunita for the way she behaved. The second was the whole violent episode at the end; I felt it was very abrupt and didn’t really fit in with the story but then that is just my opinion.

On the whole I recommend it for a very nice light read. Great work Sundari Venkatraman!

The Malhotra Bride is the second book I have read by the Author Sundari Venkatraman and is her first foray into self publishing. This is again a total Bollywood romance full of a few twists. Well, I did read the book in one go, so yes I was addicted to the story, waiting for the plot to unfold. Sundari has a way of tying her romances with some thrill and drama and the book ends up being an interesting and start - to - finish read.

PLOT: Twenty year old Sunita has just graduated, and dreams of having a fulfilling career as an Interior Designer. Gokul Rishi, her father has other plans for her, which involves marrying her off to the heir of the Malhotra business empire. Akshay Malhotra, is considered to be the most eligible bachelor, and at 28 has lived a very carefree life. An Arranged marriage does not tie in with his plans for the future. So this is what the story is about, how these two people who don’t want to get married meet and how does Sunita finally become the Malhotra Bride.

CHARACTERS: Sunita is a headstrong, independent and has big dreams for herself, at the same time she is traditional and has immense respect for her mother and Grandfather. She will stand up for what she believes in and will do what she thinks is necessary to fulfil her dreams. Akshay Malhotra is a typically good guy, the quintessential bollywood romantic lead (yep recall all the Prem’s and Raj’s and Rahul’s here). Sunita’s Father is the typical controlling father who thinks he knows all and tries to plan everyone’s life and keeps everyone mute and under the spell of his fear, including his wife. Ratan Rishi is Sunita’s grandfather who loves and understands her and does not agree with the way his son treats his family.
