Well, I am pretty confused as the plot is so common and storyline is very predictive, however the premise of the plot Harrapa was very heavy and luring... It's very difficult to understand why the author have taken the best of these genre novels, mix it well and plated in the form of novel when he could have done more dip test in history backed by historical evidences. These genre of book could have dished out lot of more insight of the lost history however it felt that the history was used just to add flavor to the novel.. If felt like the story is weaved around the notable name of Harrapa and no effort taken to ensure that the story line is not in lines with conspiracy theories and no reference bibliography have mentioned to entice the audience and add weight to the story.. Now it felt like a fable for an young adult which is just like masala movie. Expect more from such genre and somehow dissatisfied. The performance is unnecessarily dramatized which is not needed as the audience is not kids but adults. Also the essence of the story gets diluted when the performer needlessly do the voice modulation and make the grim situation laughable. Read it maturely to make more impact I felt.

The storyline was gripping but could find the traces of lot of plots heard or read in blockbuster, some were so cheesy plots that could have been avoided... Nevertheless good story to hear... The flip side is the narrators choice of modulating females voice and was damn irritating and sound ugly...

Good content but storytelling was predictive... Needed more tighter plot... By the mid of the story I anticipated that end.. Characters needed to be more sting and conviction missing... Nevertheless the author has good knowledge of history and put his knowledge to create the mystery.... Narrator was on the go pace which was easy on ears.... Overall satisfactory...
