When two more murders connected with the case made headlines, it’s time for Agni to find answers to perplexing questions and unveil shocking truths.

The Colours of Passion breezes through Kolkata’s glamorous world of industrialists, movie stars, models and fashion designers laced with drug addiction and illicit liaisons, with a heart-wrenching tragedy at its core.


The Colors of Passion by Sourabh Mukherjee is a fantastic book that unravels the dark secrets existing behind the limelight. A Fiction/Crime Thriller seeks to bring forth the latent dark truths that are wrapped cleverly under the boisterous glitter of glamour.

The story revolves around its protagonist Manav and his insecurities and cowardice to accept a truth he proudly flaunts in the realm of darkness. The brutal murder of his wife, the Tollywood diva, brings ACP Agni into the picture, who is resolute in solving the mystery behind the assassination of the actress. As he proceeds in his investigation, a lot many clues and suspects cropped up that made it harder for him to determine the perpetrator. A rigorous and meticulous approach towards the case, finally, unfolds the truth before him that baffles him.

Our society is plagued with the dormant ideologies and age-old beliefs. Homosexuality is seen as a crime, a crime that is a curse for the society and its value systems, a crime that is ‘unnatural’. I would like to appreciate the author for bringing this critical issue to the fore, as it demands a special attention in the current scenario. The storytelling of author is wonderful. All the characters have been created nicely and well put in the riveting plot. The narration ties the reader to the edge of his seats and by the end puts a question in front of him, “Will the society accept the change, ever?”

The novel apparently talks about the limelight but it actually wants to fix our minds to ponder over a crucial issue of homosexuality, its relevance, its natural existence and ultimately its acceptance. The ones who are the “victims” live in self-denial and negligence. They want to cover up their identities and adopt dual lives. The urge to be accepted and respected coaxes them to take up a wrong path that leads to destruction. This novel points towards the ill mindset and the harm it has been causing to people ever since.

The author has meticulously put words and expressions to enhance the beauty of the story. The coherence is perfect and with the flow of the story, the thrill takes over your senses. The blurb is good and the cover is intimidating. However, the title is impeccable to compliment the content of the book. The love is a passionate emotion and its varied hues can bewilder you. But it is the Red which is more prominent that locks the theory of love!

Read the book for if you love the thriller, this one is going to fulfill your expectations completely! And not just for the bibliophiles, I would recommend it to everyone out there to contemplate over a serious issue that is being highlighted!
