Before sharing the review of the book, I am sharing the reason why I chose to read this book. I instantly fell in love with the title of the book. I had heard of various stories where girls had fallen in love with army men but I was always keen to know the other way round story. And I finally found a book that I was looking for.
This is a simple love story that revolved around Oscar and Amrita. The male protagonist is very good reporter, a Catholic who lives in a huge joint family. The female protagonist is a Punjabi has army men in her family and feels proud in calling herself as an Army Girl. Destiny had its plans and Amrita joins the same company where Oscar worked as a reporter. Their meeting and eventually falling in love seemed to be planned in the heavens. Though there were some problems and confusions but they happen in every love story. These problems are the ones that make the love story a better one for a perfect ending. There were problems in convincing both the families as religion was a bar but the two protagonists won the heart of each other’s families. For Amrita it was easy as she made Oscar leave his bad habit that he had been continuing for a long time. And in case of Oscar, he took time to win the hearts as the first response was expected to be a negative one.
I don’t know whether I had made too many expectations from the story after reading the title or was the story not that good. It was predictable most of the times as it happen in every love story where the lovers are from different cultural backgrounds. Since there were no mystery and dramatic twist and turns, I did not like the book that much. Otherwise it was a light and a decent read.
