Book Review of Glitter and Gloss

Glitter and Gloss by Vibha Batra is a light hearted romance novel blended with humour. The novel is well known for its witty dialogues and the way it involves Bollywood instances is impeccable.

Cover and Title- The cover is classy and the image perfectly suits it. This throws light on the glamourous world somewhere or the other. The title suggests that the story is about cosmetics , beauty salons and probably its sponsored by M.A.C as there is clear cut mention of this brand.

Plot- The plot is predictive still it binds the readers till the end. The story revolves around Misha is a makeup artist at M.A.C and bumps into Akshay one day. They fell for each other but as they say every story has a villain and his didi is one such person who wants a typical bahu for her brother. Will Misha be able to convince Didi? Does her love has enough power to hold back Akshay?

Characterisation- The author has beautifully portrayed her characters and my personal favourite is Misha who is a power house of energy. She never fails to make others feel awkward and her blabbermouth throws her in an awkward sitaution always. She is a makeup artist at M.A.C. She is hilarious and witty. The way she handles the things from her professional to love life is enthralling.

Akshay is the heir of Agarwal Jewellers who is tall,lean and a successful businessman. He falls for Misha but he loves his Didi so much. It is difficult for him to choose between his Didi and his love.

Style- If you are a grammar Nazi then surely, you will not love this piece but if you are reading like a layman and enjoying the witty, hunourous dialogues then surely, it is a treat to read Vibha’s writing. The Bollywood dialogues keeps you hooked till the end but at times those Hindi phrases are a turn off. Overall, its an interesting read and can be converted into a comedy film.

The Story:


Sagarika Mehta walks out of her nine-year-old marriage, meets with a near-fatal accident and goes into a deep coma all on the same day. After six months, she wakes up with no memory of her past. When she is discharged from hospital a year later, Rishab, her husband, whisks her away to an unfamiliar address in Gurgaon to convalesce.



There, in that plush apartment, with people waiting on her hand and foot, Sagarika can’t shake off the feeling that something is wrong.



Why does the scent of a particular cologne unsettle her? Why does the innocuous word ‘cheeni’ bother her? And why is Rishab so evasive in response to her queries about her past?



‘A Forgotten Affair’ is a gripping story of a woman caught between two worlds.
