By Chandreyee Chaudhury

Swayam Ganguly’s first novel Love, Films and Rock n Roll! is a story of three young men from different backgrounds who are travelling on a train from Jamshedpur to Kolkata.

Sunil wants to direct a film in Tollywood, Sam is a software engineer and Dipsy is a musician. This novel is about how they bond and become thick friends, about their love interests which culminate in happy endings and how they are able to accomplish their professional goals

Ganguly’s writing is lucid with tongue in cheek humour and also shows a deep understanding of films and music. I especially liked his take on Goopy Gyne Bagha Byne (Ray’s classic film),his comments on Baul music as as his write up about Mark Knoffler and Jim Morrison.

Swayam Ganguly has made a mark with this novel and we look forward to many more from him.
