The Colour of Love (Jagdish Joghee): Book Review



Sarfaraz is brought up with a good value system by his devoted parents. With time, curiosity and adolescent growth pangs take him through many experiences. His first brush with girls starts with a friend, and slowly meanders into casual flirtatious affairs with girls at college.
All through it, he realises that none of them have his undying, true love. A time comes when he realises who he truly loves, and in the midst of it all, he handles brutal enmity and takes on vile characters that misbehave with his friends.
Sarfaraz grows up in Coimbatore where a series of bomb blasts occur. His identity is called in question, as his status as a Muslim makes people see him as an enemy. He loses something precious in the blasts and leaves to Sharjah, only for life to find him and surprise him.


The Colour of Love dabs a college life love story. It explores the life of Srafarisha, a muslim from Kerala how his life turns out at college; his perks in all aspects and his shot at finding his love of life adding more… how fate played with his life.

What’s best about the book is that the characters are like people next door that helps in connecting well with the readers. The framing of characters with their regional influence was interesting. The turn of events were coherent and composed well. The approach towards love is realistic, in a way pointing out the difference between crush, love and lust; a true meaning of what love is and how it is different from the other momentary forms of attraction.Towards the end there might be that high level dramatic moment that might make you feel “Not again! ” but then it takes a turn to end at a hopeful point, nothing tragic, which went good with me.

What is off about the book is that it is a bit predictable in the first few pages itself, but how is what to be read. Writing style and delivery can be improvised.

I will rate it 4/5🙂 . A pretty good one time read 🙂
