Within days of her fairy-tale wedding with Manav Chauhan, Hiya Sen, the reigning queen of Tollywood, is brutally raped and murdered. As ACP Agni Mitra investigates into the high-profile murder, he meets Neha Awasthi, with whom Manav broke his engagement to marry Hiya, Neha’s father Deepak Awasthi, who was eyeing business benefits through the alliance, Mayank Kapoor, an alcoholic model and Rituja Bose, the diva who had reigned over Tollywood over the past decade. When two more murders connected with the case make headlines, it’s time for Agni to find answers to perplexing questions and unveil shocking truths.

The Colours of Passion breezes through Kolkata’s glamorous world of industrialists, movie stars, models and fashion designers laced with drug addiction and illicit liaisons, with a heart-wrenching tragedy at its core.

The colours of passion is a crime thriller. The story revolves around mystery behind the brutal murder of Tollywood Diva, Hiya Sen. There are many suspects in this case including Hiya's husband Manav Chauhan. She gets raped by three people and murdered. ACP Agni Mitra and Inspector Arya put their best efforts to solve this murder mystery. Each character brings new twist and turns in the story and makes it even more complicated. The topic of heterosexuality is also highlighted in this story, which is considered a taboo in our story.

The language used is simple and easy to understand. It a gripping story and the suspense will keep you at the edge of your seat and to turn the next page to know more. I enjoyed reading it and I am sure every reader would love reading it as it has everything suspense, romance, thrill and mystery. The title of the story is apt as when we read the story, we'll get to know how different colours of passion drives us to do things which may not be right.

RATING: I would rate it 4/5
