Love, life & all that jazz is set in Mumbai and it’s the story of five friends Tanveer, Sameer, Vikram, Naina and Tania. The story revolves around the five friends and there personal and professional life and twists and turns they face.

Tanveer – is hardworking, ambitious and belongs to the poor Muslim family. For him his family and responsibilities of his families comes first. He joins a financial firm with challenging job and a difficult boss. He falls in love with the Tanaz, the daughter of his Farsi landlord. Will Tanveer succeed in his challenging job? Will his family accept Tanaz, who belongs to the different religion? Will their love survive?

Sameer & Tania – is in love with each other since college days. they find it difficult to manage the long distance relationship when Sameer moves to UK for his MBA. Will their love survive?

Vikram & Naina – is fun loving, charming and affluent. Vikram falls in love with Naina – upcoming model. Vikram helps Naina to achieve her goal in life – becoming a successful model. Will Vikram take the pressure and growing popularity of Naina as super model positively or negatively?

This is the journey of life in a new India where these friends support each other and evolve through their experiences and missteps in Love, Life and all that Jazz……

The character development is very good and phase of the story is also good. You won’t feel bore or skipping some pages. There are some instance in which you will surely relate yourself in the story, – either it is college fun, college time love affairs, first job, difficult boss, long distance relationship etc.

The places described in this book are all familiar, you didn’t have to Google the names of the places to know – where it is and how actually it look like. the language is very simple and up to the point. there were some points in which the story goes in flashback in which the characters remember or tells their college time fun.

The flow of the story is kind of Bollywood movie like and ending is also kind a Bollywood movie like (I mean ‘Happy Ending’).  Ahmed Faiyaz has done the excellent job in his debut novel. I picked up this book from landmark when it is released, guess what I got book signed by Ahmed Faiyaz!.

Overall a very interesting and good read.

[P.S : Wish You All A Very Happy New Year 2011 ]
