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 is yet another youthful love story. The story portrays life of Sarfaraz. a muslim guy from Kerala, how the journey of life casted him in different shades. It leads you through a connection between marwari hindu aur muslim malayali, over the horizon of cultural differences and its backdrop.
The brilliantly depicted each characters and the changes they embraced over time, he also succeeded in creating the typical life style of a college boy with respect to the region they are from. There is high voltage drama and then there is guy next door feel to it. It contains all the essential ingredients of an Indian love story in right proportions, nothing is overdone which makes it effective. The flash back style of story telling is pulled off well. The highlight is its concept of love, it points out that impulsive commitment owing to the age, over times fades off and that it’s all about finding the right one. I found the element of terrorism with coherence to the lead’s background an interesting twist.
In some places it was very much predictable and it in deed held low points along. Language and writing technique needs polishing. All in all its a delightful one time read.
I will rate it 4/5 🙂 . Do try this romantic tale, you will enjoy it for sure!
