Cover of Dreams in Prussian Blue by Paritosh Uttam

The Real Deal, published by Rupa Publications in July 2016, is my second novel.

It is the story of Paras and Sulochana, youngsters stifled by the conservative small town they live in, but with stars in their eyes. Only the popular reality TV show The Real Deal offers them a way out of obscurity and into fame and fortune. But do the two have a chance competing against the ‘cool’ big-city crowd?

Set in the world of reality TV, The Real Deal is a rollercoaster ride of emotions, strategies, betrayal and finally, redemption.

I hope you will find The Real Deal a breezy, engaging read, as well as a satisfying literary experience.

You can purchase the book online on stores like Amazon.in and Flipkart. The Kindle version is also available.

Dreams in Prussian Blue, published by Penguin India as one of its Metro Reads series in January 2010, is my first published novel.

Malayalam film - Artist

Dreams in Prussian Blue has been adapted into an award-winning Malayalam film titled Artist by acclaimed director Shyamaprasad, and was released in August 2013.
