    Accuracy of Book Profile

    Yes, it feels like a fair reflection of the book. However, it would certainly benefit from a more built-out character breakdown, and the "About the Author" section feels way too overstuffed. Less is more here.

    Draw of Story

    What drew me into the story immediately was the rather unique point-of-view-- The author brings to the table a profound, thoughtful, and mature Hindu perspective-- It's a theme and commentary running concurrent with the actions and characters of the text at play. It makes this work feels distinct and endows it with educational value for a Western audience.

    Possible Drawbacks

    What made me want to put the book down, at times, was the scattered, inconsistent nature of the writing style. As a matter of fact, chapter-to-chapter, this work has different typefaces, structures, points-of-view. The text is everything from multi-colored, italicized, emboldened, and even highlighted. Moreover, the formatting and spacing proves inconsistent throughout as well. In essence, it makes the reading experience feel chaotic and hard-to-follow. Another pass to yield consistency and palatability would only help this work. Moreover, the scene where the doctor is caught literally with his pants down strikes as quite disturbing. It's a profoundly heinous act that a medical professional would exploit a vulnerable, unconscious woman to such an extent. But what is nearly as disturbing is that the characters Mayuri and her father Aakaash seem to ultimately just let it slide. This scene will prove baffling to the wide audience, and not to mention the fact that it seems to chip away at the audience's suspension of disbelief in this text. A reconsideration of this scene is essential.

    Use of Special Effects


    Primary Hook of Story

    The hook is that this work has a distinct voice-- It offers a life and cultural perspective that is thoughtful, informative, and rather unique. A Western audience would have much to gain from this window into, in essence, another world.

    Fanbase Potential

    This would not have a large fanbase, as it is far from a genre picture, and it seems to pertain squarely to a niche audience-- Women, 25+. This work has much more of an indie or low-budget feel to it, too.

    Awards Potential

    Candidly, no, this is not an awards contender. It seems to lean too far into melodrama territory for the awards bodies to view it as a prestige contender. This could perhaps compete at smaller festivals with a certain theme or focus, but its decidedly small footprint would seem to disqualify it from the more notable ceremonies.

    Envisioned Budget


    Similar Films/TV Series


    What’s New About the Story

    As noted, what is unique about this story is the Hindu perspectives the author brings to the table. It elevates this work from a more-or-less familiar melodrama to a work with educational value and originality.

    Lead Characters

    What makes Mayuri stand out is her honesty with herself and her sense of inner strength, which manifests as outward sassiness and confidence. Moreover, her internal monologue and diary entries give us immediate access to her emotions and psyche. It helps this work flourish with a distinct value set and cultural perspective.

    Uniqueness of Story

    This does not quite feel like a rare gem. It certainly has value stemming from its backbone philosophy and its unique voice that will provide a different kind of experience, at least for a Western audience. However, some of the content of its drama feels a bit familiar-- Broken marriages, affairs, family-planning woes. On top of that, the writing style feels entirely busy and scattered, making it a bit difficult to follow, and a scene late in the text will likely prove to jar audiences to the point of alienation.

    Possible Formats

    Film: Indie

    Analyst Recommendation



    Values aside, this work can only be considered a work in progress as the execution needs further consideration-- As noted, the writing style is highly variant chapter-for-chapter, making it a difficult, even unpalatable reading experience. Moreover, a rather disturbing scene and aftermath late in this text warrants another pass.

    Tips for Improvement

    The author would need to do another pass to smoothen the writing style and execution. There also seems to be some bloat in the 500+ pages-- An effort to cut, condense, and simplify could maximize this work's potency, too.


    SEDUCTION OF THE SEDUCER OF SEDUCERS is a spiritual, philosophical Indian woman's chronicling of her own life story, following her through a challenging childhood in India, to an adult life in America, and through a tumultuous marriage and romantic life.

    What We Liked

    This work stood out for its entirely original voice-- Mayuri is a strong, perseverant woman, and her story is told with constant and countless musings and commentaries of a modern world through a traditional Hindu lens. Sometimes the actions, emotions, and conundrums in this text can feel melodramatic and familiar, but it is the color and distinction of the main character's point-of-view that makes this work feel fresh, interesting, and engaging.

    Film: This would be a solid candidate for adaptation to film in that this work seems to afford its audience a sure-handed portrait of a life that is in many ways alien to our own. How refreshing it would be to spend a few hours in the world of Mayuri, with all of her strife and strength, and with the power and presence of her faith. Mayuri's world is a colorful, intimidating, and poetic one, and it would be interesting to see it rendered on the big screen in all of its glory.

    TV: This would be a solid adaptation for TV in terms of how robust its epic, decades-spanning story is. It was striking how eventful, high-stakes, and interesting the childhoods of Chandrashekhar and Mayuri were. The small-scale corruption and challenges they dealt with early in life felt massive, and it would be a perfect thread in a season of TV, among many others in this work. All in all, the characters, arcs, and journey of the protagonist feel large and built-out enough to warrant expansion on the small screen.

    Key points:
    1. The Hindu perspective-- Makes this work feel original and educationally valuable.
    2. The childhoods of Mayuri and Chandrashekhar-- High-stakes, challenging, and distinct.
    3. The strength and resilience of Mayuri-- She proves to be exemplary and admirable in many ways.
    4. The drama-- The deterioration and aftermath of Mayuri's marriage proves to be eventful and memorable.
    5. The resolution-- It is a relief and a reward that Mayuri seems to find solace despite her woes. It's a mature and bittersweet ending in many ways.


    SEDUCTION OF THE SEDUCER OF SEDUCERS is one woman's chronicling of her own life story. In a variety of different writing styles, formats, and points-of-view, we follow the upbringing, education, romantic woes, and more adult conundrums of an Indian woman named MAYURI. Through and through, she weaves in Vedic proverbs and philosophies, invoking her Hindu gods and goddesses in commentary and reflection of her life and choices. First, we follow the courtship and later marriage of the straight-shooting ADITI and her suitor, the wise and poetic-minded AAKAASH.

    After the traditional Indian courtship and marriage, they soon give birth to Mayuri and, years later, to CHANDRASHEKHAR, a son. Aakaash tries his best to endow his children with a vast cultural understanding and to pass on his traditional value system, while Mayuri finds herself often clashing with her more matter-of-fact mother, which becomes a major theme of their relationship.

    We follow Mayuri and Chandrashekhar through their school days-- Mayuri finds herself victim of a rather cruel educator who seems to target her with discipline, while Chandrashekhar finds himself at the mercy of a corrupt teacher who deflates other kids' grades in order to benefit his own son.

    Later, Mayuri heads to the United States for continued education. There, she finds herself often overwhelmed by the loud, vibrant American culture. She also experiences a profound sexual awakening, and she ponders and toils with her sexuality and spirituality as a result. She tries her best to stay focused on her studies and her future, going so far as to vow to never get married. However, she eventually meets the responsible, career-focused CHANAKYA, who woos and entices her. Before long, the two introduce each other to their families, and a union becomes imminent. They soon marry, and it is a joyous union, at least for a while.

    However, a major rift develops in their relationship when Mayuri proves unable to conceive a child. This causes major spats between the two, and Mayuri becomes increasingly turned off by her husband's money-grubbing ways. Mayuri finds herself curious about a male acquaintance of theirs named FAUST. They even spend time alone together, with a simmering sexual tension no less. Mayuri withholds telling Chanakya about the hang-out for fear of his jealousy. Before long, the marriage crumbles, and it gets ugly-- Chanakya becomes entirely hateful, even trying to hire Faust to kill Mayuri. However, the feelings between Mayuri and Faust are profound and self-admitted. The volatility of the dynamic crescendos when Mayuri, alone and broken, crashes her car and ends up comatose.

    Mayuri speaks to her favorite Hindu goddess while in the ether. Meanwhile, in the hospital Aakaash finds a doctor having sex with Mayuri while she is comatose. However, he claims he was inspired by a Hindu deity, and his act of "love" seems to wake Mayuri from her coma. Curiously, Mayuri and Aakaash seem to just let it slide for the simple fact that it worked in helping her wake up. Mayuri even starts to have a flirtatious kind of banter with SOREN, the doctor. However, she soon discovers that she is pregnant with Faust's child. She writes to him and informs him. After much self-reflection, she decides to terminate her pregnancy, finding solace in the philosophy in her faith that all women are mothers to all children. With that, now approaching middle-age, Mayuri finds a long sought-after peace of mind.
