Book Review – The Colors of Passion by Sourabh Mukherjee


“Who killed Tollywood heart-throb Hiya Sen?

Within days of her fairy-tale wedding with Manav Chauhan, the dashing young entrepreneur, Hiya Sen, the reigning queen of Tollywood, is brutally raped and murdered by three men. As ACP Agni Mitra investigates into the high-profile murder, he meets Neha Awasthi, with whom Manav broke his engagement to marry Hiya, Neha’s father Deepak Awasthi, who was eyeing business benefits through the alliance, Mayank Kapoor, an alcoholic model, and Rituja Bose, the diva who had reigned over Tollywood over the past decade. When two more murders connected with the case make headlines, it’s time for Agni to find answers to perplexing questions and unveil shocking truths.

The Colours of Passion breezes through Kolkata’s glamorous world of industrialists, movie stars, models and fashion designers laced with drug addiction and illicit liaisons, with a heart-wrenching tragedy at its core.


The cover is designed in such a way that it depicts that the storyline is based on some murder.

The title is eye-catchy as well as the cover shows blood and red signifies many things and situations.

As mentioned in Blurb, the plot revolves around the death of famous Tollywood actress Hiya Sen. Other characters like Mayank and Manav plays an important role in the storyline as well.
While reading the story, I felt that the characters were not described as they should have been. The only factor which was a led down for this novel was this part only.
The language used in the novel is simple to understand. The start of the novel is a little bit slow, but it was a mind-blowing page-turner novel.
What I loved about this novel is that It was written from ACP’s point of view.
The novel is written in such a manner which takes you through twists and turns, which are next to impossible to guess.
The author has written the novel in such a way that the suspense of the story is kept intact until the end.
Kudos to the efforts of the author to make the story a thriller with a message.
And the message reads,
“Always be True to avoid troubles in life”.
