UTV has purchased the movie rights to the book and a film based upon the story is expected soon. So when I am reading this one along with international ones, it was obvious that this book was going to be neglected. And it has a perfect ending. From the sand-washed ruins of Kalibangan to a Vrindavan temple destroyed by Aurangzeb, Saini must also delve into antiquity to prevent a gross miscarriage of justice. Finally, the end is rather abrupt, sudden and a bit of an anti-climax.
And most annoying of all, a bizarre love story was thrown in to the mix of history, mythology, murder-mystery and conspiracies towards the end. I was disappointed 2.
The only thing isof many things he mentionedI am not sure what sources are credible and what are fiction he wrote for the sake of book! This is clearly an attempt at making the novel more international, since audiences today are fed an overdose of Hollywood movies “you have the right to remain silent”, etc If you have read Dan Brown, perhaps you may feel pity for the author and his attempt.
Another one of a scientist and lastly, a perspective of a geneticist. I was so looking forward to read it and when i read it turned out to be a mojor disappointment! Probably the author had the baggage of an already burgeoning book and did not want to spend more pages on character development. Would I recommend this book to anyone? There are many instances where I couldn’t help smile at the result of this deliberate attempt to ‘belong’ to a wider audience and mostly US audience at that.
Though I am Indian, I have some problem with Indian writing style. Infact the whole idea of Krishna key was based on the ceramicplate, but again the author failed here atlast. Dec 18, Nikhil Harindranath rated it liked it.
Having read his previous books The Rozabal Line and Chanikya’s Chant, I did expect a lot from this book hoping to find some conspiracy theories and untold tales about Lord Krishna.
Like the the main characters coming out of dangerous situations rather smoothly, and the main villain committing crimes too easily without much resistance etc. From this one statement, it is SO OBVIOUS that Sanghi has written this book keeping probably non-existent American readers in mind, while the truth is that almost all of his readers will be Indians because, c’mon, which American in his right mind will want to read a Da Vinci Code rip-off?
Professor Varshney is one of the few who knows about this secret and he has a safety net. Now coming to the mystery-thriller part, it was good in terms of pace as the book progressed. Infact, it is not a good read at all. At the end of it, its what the title says.
This page was last edited on 30 Decemberat One thing which I really liked about this book is that krishnx the beginning of every chapter, the story of Krishna is written in a short and concise way. Ashwin is a changed man! The characters are under developed. Reading “The Krishna Key” conversation part is akin to watching a B-grade Bollywood movie with banal dialogues and too much verbal diarrhea. Characters have sandwiches and coffee at a road side eatery, rather than standard Indian dishes.

I thoroughly enjoyed Krishna’s narration. Finance from the Yale ,ey of Management. He has acknowledged this on his website. Truly, by the time you reach the end of the pages, you essentially do not want it to end.

The Krishna Key
Five thousand years ago, there came to earth a magical being called Krishna, who brought about innumerable miracles for the good of mankind. Perhaps there was a compelling plot here, but it was weighed down by the writing. Scratching the wall with my nails would probably be more bearable than reading this trash. The characters did not seem very fleshed out and they were killed off quickly However, with some help, he manages to deal with everything and arrive at the kriishna.
Every elementevery important incident, every key character was portrayed well.
At too many places the book points an ugly finger at the beliefs of religions other than Hinduism. The editing is careless, to say the least.
Already this has been said by Dan-brown, Mr. The entire story revolves around how Saini can prove his innocence, outwit his enemies, and at the same time solving- What is the legacy that Krishna left behind for us? The latter considers himself to be the tenth ashiwn of Lord Vishnu and is out to get what he thinks belongs to him.
