The ingenuineness of this review appears doubtful. There is caste system even in murder! You dont 66 the name of the road vukas dwellers killed by Salman Khan!

But, here the one who is killedMr. Is he a noble soul whose death need to be mourned? He deserve more punishments but alas our system is so corrupt! What ever it may be – another interesting question associated with this is “Who is the killer? Arun Advani – the investigative journalist who was observing Vicky Rai for quite long take us through the roller swadup ride revealing the mysteries behind the death!

Police could figure out “Six Suspects” Title of the Novel. Did any one of them commit the murder? Or there is another one who got amazing capability to fool the system? Vikas Swarup takes us through the story behind the murder in his latest novel.

Some of the real life characters like Barkha Dutt is also there in this novel! Also, many of the incidents can be identified with swaryp life happenings – like the murder of Jessica Lall in etc.

There is a bureaucrat, an innocent tribal youth, a dumb American, an actress, a thief and finally finally a politician Vicky’s father himself. Each character has their own chapter, three times over, the first being under Suspectsthe second under Motives, the third – when all is revealed – under Evidence.

The bureaucrat is one of the most corrupted person who serves in the board of many companies owned by Vicky Rai. He is encountered with Chemical Locha popularised by Munnabhai. At times, soul Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi take control over him and then he will resort to Gandhigiri. He got another identity as Gandhi Baba.

Finally, he was guided by the soul of Ruby Gill who was killed swarip Vicky to pay revenge. How he is liberated from his sarup Is he the murderer? The Tribal Youth reaches India from Andaman stress vikad the point – India – they dont have national feeling?


Finally, he came to know that it is found in Vicky Rai’s residence. A good reason to kill Vicky? The dumb American who is a fork lift driver reaches India to marry an Swadup woman who send her photo to him through an agency. On arrival he was shocked to realise that he was duped.

He is enoucntered with many difficulties, got job as an accent trainer vjkas a call centre he almost cries when his students call him Professor.

Un fortunately his name is the same as that of the founder of Google – yeah, Larry Page!

Suspeccts, what cost he has to give for that? The actress is the one from a small village and Vicky was always wanting to have an indecent affair with her.

Delhi underbelly

Finally she accepts his offer. Is that with a special agenda? The mobile phone thief could win the heart of Vicky’s sister.

He got brutally attacked by Vicky’s henchman. Is that a good enough reason to kill him? Finally – what will you do, when your son causes this much of trouble to you – like, you are about to become Chief Minister of the state but just because of your son and his wrong deeds, you are going to lose the fortune. So, what will you do? Will you kill your son? Is it the Home Minister of UP sqarup given the contract to kill his son?

The lives of each and every character is so distinct and vivid where in we will have the experience of reading new story altogether! Interestingly, some of them really came to kill Vicky on the same day when he was shot dead. But if you are looking out of amazing experiences suspscts of a literary wonder – oh no, please. Dont even touch the book. I was reading this book for last one month just for the purpose of time pass and it served the purpose.

It provided information, it made me laugh loud at times especially the Americanit did revealed a realistic picture on corruption etc. Altogether, it demands much time and energy from the author. It is very difficult to withhold my feeling of happiness just becuase of the lack of technical intricaciies and logic. Six Suspects reveals Vikas Swarup’s uninhibited lust for bizarre twists and outrageous coincidences and instances of appalling cruelty.

There are too many ingredients have been stirred into the stew, that it has been quite crudely overspiced and that there has been ample recourse to fictional stock-in-trade. Finally, the book takes us all over India and shows us the myriad threads that weaves the country into a giant multicolored quilt. So, sooner we can expect a movie out of this Novel also. But will it bag “Oscar” again?
