Color Me Rich
A sensitive love story of a handsome and talented struggling painter Akash Saigal. What happens when he marries an extremely rich and beautiful artist and art investor Zenobia Taraporevala?
My Honest Review
Color Me Rich by Mohan Deep is mixture of suspense and romance, art and music.
It's a story of a small time artist Akash who like every other budding artist is struggling in Mumbai to make his two ends meet. He catches eye of rich, art collector Zenobia, who is attracted towards him for his charisma and his talent. Akash’s neighbor in locality Suma, who sings and writes ghazals have a crush on Akash but has never let him know about her true feelings.
Color Me Rich is basically their story of their love triangle laced with suspense of Zenobia’s death/suicide. The story at first resembles like story of a well-known Bollywood actress who had fallen to death 2 decades back from her high rise flat. But other than that there is no similarity.
The book depicts life of struggling artist Akash, how he handles the ups and downs of his success and also the truth of art world.
Language is simple, and nicely written. Climax is different and not what a reader expects while reading. In first read, one usually gets mixed up with which is present and which is flash back, which is only one drawback of the book I felt.
Color Me Rich is a short and interesting read. This is my first book of the author, but I can say liked the way he has written, blending well the lifestyles of middle class people in Adarsh nagar and also well-to-do Taraporevala’s penthouse in Apollo Towers.
