    Flipkart Official Review


    “Those Pricey Thakur Girls” is not chick-lit, well not at least according to me. It is fiction, popular fiction if anything else. It is also Jane Austen in Delhi, or rather hints and traces of Pride and Prejudice in Delhi in the 80’s and just by that you should know that it is a romp of a read. At the same time, Anuja Chauhan touches on the political and social issues of those times, however does not let the novel dwell on it too much.

    The setting: Hailey Road in Delhi. The family: But obviously the Thakur clan. The characters: Justice Laxmi Narayan Thakur, his wife Mamta Thakur, and their five daughters, who are named alphabetically from A to E. Each daughter has her own eccentricities. Each daughter comes with her own opinions and way of living. Amidst all this is the fourth daughter Debjani, who essentially the story is about, of how she becomes a news reader on DeshDarshan (a tongue-in-cheek but obviously on the national channel) and the appearance of Dylan Singh Shekhawat (her father’s closest friend’s son) and but obviously the tone of the book is set – of misunderstanding, of romance and of whether or not they will get together.

    The Indian families in the book automatically provide for so much fodder for humour and sarcasm. The characters are well-etched– interlinked families in a growing metropolis. The book is a fantastic read.

     

    Those Pricey Thakur Girls is a popular fiction set in the posh Hailey Road In Delhi. The book is about the Thakur family and how each member of the family is unique in their own quirky way. It is a fun read with tongue-in-cheek humor.

     

    Summary

    The story of the book revolves around Retd. Justice Laxmi Narayan Thakur and his five daughters, all named in alphabetical order from A to E. Each daughter has their own opinions and way of life and come with their own set of eccentricities. Debjani, the fourth daughter and the protagonist of the novel gets a job as a news reader with DeshDarshan, the national channel. With the appearance of Dylan Singh Shekhawat, a christian-rajput and the son of her father’s closest friend, things take a whole new turn, with romance brewing in the backdrop. The other sisters, Anjini, Binodini, Chandrakanta and Eshwari make the book witty and spot-on funny.

    D-for-Dhamaka! A fun read indeed!

    The 5 daughters of BJ (Bau Ji) are the 5 different hues of the spectrum. Well, technically 4 because the 3rd offspring((Chandu with her Estonian spouse and son Hendrick Narayan Lippick) never surfaces. You can hear the Judge yelling "no one should take her name in the house" and ultimately discover the "secret" nexus between old Mr Gambhir and LN which clearly marks out the fact that a father can't be weaned away from a child for long.

    The show stealers are themembers of the thakur clan--Anj...

    A Breath of Fresh Air!

    I think its a very brave move for Anuja Chauhan to write about the 80s- it was a huge risk taken on her part as descriptions are very important for creating the background in a novel- and she nailed it! Although I am only a teenager right now, I was able to clearly imagine the 80s because of the apt descriptions. I remember my mother telling me about those times when they used to have Doordarshan as the only channel and the whole family used to be huddled in front of the TV every Sunday to wa...

    Immensely putdownable!

    Damn! If you are one of those guys who have the audacity to flip through the pages of a rather pernicious looking "chic-flick" and decide to breeze through it in the hope that such an un-nerving genre does not exist in the first place. Well. then you could not have been more wrong. This self styled salt and peppery attempt at Jane Austenesque style of writing falls flat on its face and well is absolutely for girls and teenage ones at that. I was hoping for a run up through the nostalgic 80's ...

    Hillarious

    This is my first Anuja Chauhan book and i must say it will be the first of many books to read from this Author.after reading the first few pages i just couldnt put it down n completed within 3 days ...and it has its mushy moments and all in all a great peak into the era when we only had one channel to boost of and off course you do come to know abt politics @ that time ..all in all a good read and the characters stay with u even after putting down the book..go for it .. !!!!

    D for dreary

    I had very high hopes for this book, fresh off the high a re-read of the Zoya Factor and Battle for Bittora provided me with, but sadly this book fell short. Dabbu and Dylan had none of the sparkling chemistry and uncontrollable attraction to one another that Zoya-Nikhil and Zain-Sarojini had. I usually fall in love with the male protagonist of the book, but Dylan was thanda. Dabbu was a disappointment; I understand that the book is set in the past, but that is not an excuse to make Dabbu su...
