Overview :

Arjun Mehta is a smart, confident and charming Management graduate, who is desperately trying to hunt down his old college professor, Col. Rawat, with the help of his fiancé, Shruti. However, this trail unearths many secrets about Arjun’s life during his MBA days, which Shruti might not be prepared for. Will they be able to pull through this ordeal with their relationship intact? And Will Arjun ever find Col. Rawat? Moments Of Truth is a fascinating tale about how Arjun battles against controversies and heartaches, and his struggle to protect his relationships and realize his ambitions – all against the backdrop of “an average B-school”. Will he be able to find his real purpose in life? Or does he get end up getting lost in the crowd like so many others?

Beauty :

  • Concept is good.
  • Writing style is brilliant.
  • MBA’s hostel life of Arjun is fun filled and hilarious to read.
  • First few chapters of the book proves to be ‘anxiety generator’ chapters for the readers.

Beast :

  • Blurb seems to be distracting.
  • Middle part of the book is seems to be a bit stretched.

Review :

It takes a huge courage to face the truth, only few of us can go through the dark trail which leads us to the ugliest truths of our life. Moments of truth is a brilliantly written story of Arjun Mehta who refused to accept the truth and decided to run away till he met his professor Col. Rawat. Col. Rawat showed him the path, Arjun was always destined to follow. Arjun followed the trail of destiny and found the main motive of his life.

Moments of Truth offers a fresh idea with a captivating storyline, written brilliantly by Nimish Tanna. Writing style of the author is simple and very effective, he possesses the power to draw readers attention over the story he is narrating through his characters.

The story kick starts with the love proposal, followed by 3 months of exile of Arjun. When he returned, he took his fiance, Shruti on a trail to find his professor Col. Rawat. Author does creates a huge anxiety while building the plot for the novel. Reader starts to anticipate but nothing seems to be convincing.

According to me the downfall of the story starts with the stretching of the love story of Riya and Arjun. Reader could feel detached from the story at that moment because the initial anxiety gets lost with the beginning of an unexpected love story introduced in the middle portion of the book. The trail of finding Col. Rawat gets completely lost.

In the end, the story again picks up its beauty with the revelation of Col. Rawat’s truth and the story of 3 month exile of Arjun. That made the overall story grab 4/5 stars.

Verdict :

Moments of Truth is a story of a soulful confession and then fighting back to get the life on track. I’ll recommend this book on the basis of writing style of Nimish Tanna and the plot of the story.
