  • Murder with Bengali Characteristics

    Book Review: Murder with Bengali Characteristics

    Jokes aside, there is something to be said about this novel's failure to work as a murder mystery.
  • Seahorse

    Book Review: Seahorse

    In Janice Pariat's debut novel Seahorse, time is tethered to love, to obsessions, to personal myths.
  • Pune 52

    Film Review: Pune 52

    Largely regarded as India's first Marathi neo-noir film, Pune 52 has all the elements one has come to expect from unconventional cinema in India.
  • Annie Zaidi Gulab

    Book Review: Gulab

    Annie Zaidi takes the tropes of the conventional ghost story and breathes new life into them.
  • The Lives of Others

    Book Review: The Lives of Others

    Mukherjee writes with subtlety and intelligence, never quite allowing any of his characters to assume a moral authority.
  • Mirages of the Mind

    Book Review: Mirages of the Mind

    Mushtaq Ahmed Yosufi's novel captures the overpowering sense of nostalgia that erupted in the Indian subcontinent after the partition.
  • Brahma Dreaming

    Book Review: Brahma Dreaming

    As an introduction to the world of Hindu tales for the uninitiated, John Jackson's book is a fascinating read.
  • Gone with the Vindaloo

    Book Review: Gone with the Vindaloo

    Vikram Nair's debut novel is humorous and unpretentious; a book that celebrates life in all its natural flavours.

    Graphic India’s latest graphic novel pays tribute to an unforgettable character from Indian cinema.
  • The Lowland by Jhumpa Lahiri

    Book Review: The Lowland

    Jhumpa Lahiri understands the immigrant instinct and its compulsions only too well.
  • Kaurava by Krishna Udayasankar

    Book Review: Kaurava

    As an author, Krishna Udayasankar’s strength lies in demonstrating characters and ideas, not describing them in paragraph after droll paragraph.
  • Homesick by Roshi Fernando

    Book Review: Homesick

    In her debut novel, Roshi Fernando beautifully captures the guilt and loneliness of a tightly knit Sri Lankan famiy in South London.
