TRUST ME: RAJASHREE
Set against the backdrop of the Hindi film industry, Rajashree’s Trust Me is a story about the complexities in urban relationships. Cheated in love, duped and heartbroken, Paro concludes “all men are bastards”. When she meets Rahul, she learns that there’s light at the end of every tunnel…or is there ?
In this lighthearted debut, Rajashree balances comic and sad moods perfectly. Issues like the casting couch, stray leopards prowling the streets of Mumbai, quarrels with landlords and why clichés are a hit in the film industry are woven into the story. The language is colloquial, colours and movements are visual and well-illustrated. A fun read!
