He gets stuck between his dream and this girl.
Everyone has dreams and understandings of their lives. Untold Story of a Common Boy is the story of how Prem comes to know what the meaning of true love and the truth of life are. This is an ordinary story of a boy’s dreams about success, life, friends and true love.
Untold Story of A Common Boy is the story of Prem, the male protagonist, who is a small town boy with big dreams. He has dreams of of pursuing his career in one of the biggest cities. Here’s where his character becomes relatable. Almost every youngster in India does wish to move to the biggest cities like Delhi and Mumbai for higher studies. Prem might not have a good financial background but he sure does have confidence on his capability. On 30th June 2009, Prem gets selected for his MBA at the MTCL.
Prem’s college life is described on how he works hard and tries to make a spot for himself on the teacher’s good book. But like in every class, there has to becompetitors. Even being an average student, Prem somehow manages to make his way through all the people who try to pull him down and at some point in his college life, he falls for Jiya, the female protagonist.
Jiya’s character is shown to be indifferent, where she isn’t really good with expressing her emotions. On the other hand, Prem is very emotional and sensitive. But later on, Jiya’s emotional side is revealed. Her character is a strong character.
This book would be a good choice especially for youngsters who are in their college phase because they would be able to connect with the character of Prem. The language is very simple and the narration follows that of an young adult book so, it has that informal friendly vibe to it.
Overall the book was good but I am not much into a laid back and casual kind of writing style. There were a few grammatical errors and at times I felt that some sentences were unnecessary and their inclusion only stretched the paragraphs for which the book length increased. The plot is relatively simple and the story could have been managed within a few less pages than 328.
MY FINAL VERDICT
College-goers would be able to relate to the characters. The friendship, first love, parties, the college fun as a whole…I think everybody would be able to connect with that part. The story is overall good, I liked Jiya’s character, especially and how she is shown to be strong.
Give this a read if you are into college romances and want to reminisce over the good-old college days.
