When you perform on stage in school or college days, you try your best to become one with the character you portray in the play. The applause from audience is the prize you get for your performance and dedication.
However, it is totally different if you have to play a role in your real life. Portraying someone else, being one with someone, giving your best shot to be the person is not as easy as acting on stage. And, the applause â€" it does not come. Silent gratitude from the person to whom it makes the difference and hostility from those who are offended, without you wanting to offend them, is all you get in real life for role-playing.
When Sneha sees Ajay for the first time, she is not aware her life is going to be turned upside â€" down. She does not know she is about to lose her individuality and step into someone elseâ€TMs shoes willingly. What seems like love at first sight for her also means facing responsibilities which she is not sure, initially, whether she is ready to accept. The intensity of her feelings for Ajay, however, finally makes her take up the challenge of role playing of a wife and a mother.
On one hand, Resemblance takes us on a journey of Snehaâ€TMs life and on other hand it also tells us about the depth of motherâ€TMs love for her child, which overcomes even the barrier set by death.
Reviews by readers:
When reading the novel Resemblance by Arti Honrao it soon turned into a nail-biter after the first few sentences. Many twists and turns in the story-line keep the reader completely engrossed making it hard to put the book aside. With a unique and very unexpected ending it is a story not easily forgotten. Arti is truly the queen when it comes to writing love stories.
