When there is light, there is darkness too. So, the world of crime fascinates people since the time known. A lot of criminals are believed to have entered in the dark world due to the circumstance and surroundings. And, this theme is visible in movies, TV Shows and books around the world.
Vish Dhamija's book Deja Karma revolves around the philosophy of "Karma". This philosophy is at the root of Hinduism, the most straight-forward Dharma (not mere religion) - Hinduism. So, in this you find some references to the philosophy, thrilling incidents, legal battles, crimes and their punishments taking place at various stages.
The story revolves around Jai Singh. He is a well-known criminal lawyer of the city and has his own means to win his cases. Always accompanied by Bhima - his confidante - Jai is a private person. His personal life is not very known. And, to keep it the same, he lives at the outskirts of the city.
While on the professional end he receives a case of a politician's son, on the personal he found his possible life-partner. And, he loses his mother too. So, things are moving in multiple direction for him.
What happens to Jai and the other characters is better to be explored in the book.
Views And Reviews:
Strong characters is a plus point of this book. Be it of Jai, Bhima, Jai's mother or anyone else. Various layer's of their personalities explored gradually (as the story progresses). And eventually, this exploration grabs attention of a reader and makes him curious about the character.
The places and incidents are explored in very detail. The way a particular judge loves to run his court, or Jai's travel to a city in Rajashthan, or the clinic of the psychiatrist and Jai's interaction with her and her staff, the exploration of incidents happened in Jai's childhood, Jai's mother's life and truth, the home of Jai, Bhima's adventures to help Jai achieving his target,... there is a long list of positive things for a thriller lover.
It has some typographical and proofreading error that could have been avoided.
I liked reading this thriller. If you love exploring thrillers with a little philosophical approach, this book is for you.
Around 7.5 to 8 out of 10.
