The story represents what it truly means to be in love forever with that one person who, you see, dying every second. The main protagonist of the story is Pihu, a happy-go-lucky medical student.

Durjoy Dutta is famous for creating such realistic imaginations in the minds of the readers. The starting of the story is very interesting, since it will keep the reader glued to the pages. However, the middle part seems to be a little disoriented. Again, the last part, or the climax part is amazing!
Dutta does a great job in depicting the realistic situation and the long lasting bond of love! It can make you cry too, while rewinding the same emotional extremities, in your own life.. There is absolutely, no exaggeration of information. The storyline is unpredictable at the end and Durjoy succeeds in penetrating into a readers mind through his story, of love and friendship, very vividly indeed.
