Of course you know about the seven stages of love, but have you ever lived them?" Atharva Rathod and Meher Qasim. Lovebirds since adolescence. Bonded by love, separated by circumstances. They part ways only to meet again. But this time, he is on a secret mission... Are they in control of their own destiny, or its their destiny which is making them dance to its tunes? Only time would answer, as Atharva and Meher unwillingly and unknowingly transcend the seven stages of love. A quintessential tale of love and romance marked beautifully by its own rustic old school charm.

Story in a nutshell:
The story Unns starts with Atharva and Meher's school and progresses towards their adulthood. Atharva happens to casually mention that he likes Meher. And from then on begins the journey of puppy love. They do not realise how their liking for each other turned into love. The love story seems like a dream come true for both of them. One fine day, Meher's parents learn about her relationship with Atharva. They manage to convince her that she was infatuated with Atharva. Meher moves to Germany. Years roll on. Atharva finds himself infront of Meher. Is love giving them a second chance? 

The first thing that came to my mind after reading the book is the movie Fanaa. The story revolves around similar plot. The narration is done well. You will instantly feel connected with the characters. You will fall in love with the innocence of their childhood and maturity of their adulthood. The characters have been sketched well. The story keeps you on edge at certain places. You will feel the curiosity to know what happens next while at few places the story appears dull. The story gives out inspiration.

My personal favorite is the seven stages of love. I am in love with that dialogue.

I rate:
Cover: 3/5
Characters: 3.5/5
Story: 3/5

My overall rating for Unns - The Captivation is 3/5 stars.

Book your copies on  Amazon.
