“The book…is at its best when exploring the love at first sight, between Aditi…and Hemant, whom Mr. Kolluri depicts as gallant but overwhelmed at the prospect of an arranged marriage…”

Charles Isherwood The Wall Street Journal

"...the show (Monsoon Wedding) boasts some appealing performances, especially in...Deven Kolluri as banker husband-to-be, Hemant..."

Peter Marks The Washington Post

"Mr. Kolluri's transformation from caustic co-worker to a conquered heart was portrayed with skill and natural ease. (Kolluri reminded me of the great Jerry Orbach at times)."
