- By Sandeep Sharma and Leepi Agarwal

A special thanks to Sandeep Sharma for the review copy.


Have you ever woke up from your sleep and saw your future son licking lollipop in front of you, giving you a feeling of amusement, excitement, confusion and fear all at the same time. Well that’s exactly what the story is all about. 

Puneet, 29, is a well settled Bank Manager who like every other son is bearing the torturous love of his mothers’ most common questions-When will you get married? Living his normal life, one day something weird and extraordinary happens with him. He was stalked by a child-ghost, Rishi, who claims to be his future son. On asking, he admits that he has traveled from future to help his father find his mom.

While helping Puneet to get his love, Myra, he starts getting jealous of her. His jolly behavior turns unimaginable and brings a change in his intentions?

What makes his child’s appearance haunting at a point?

What lies behind that child’s intentions?

Was there something, he wanted to share with Puneet?

Will he be able to unite his mom and dad?

What mystery lies behind Rishi’s appearance afore Puneet?

Taste this unexpectedly yummy recipe of love, fear, humor and suspense, Hey Dad Meet My Mom to get all the answers.

My Opinion:


A perfect story, this book includes all the important parts that are required to make it a “HIT”. To be more precise, this has all the qualities to be made a Bollywood movie. An unexpected story till the very ending, it will keep its readers hooked to know the reasons behind the appearance of Rishi. Well thought plot and twists by the author-duo. Narration is kept simple and straight. The story is written in a prĂ©cised manner and fewer words which make this 159 page book a quick read.

Some of the best things about the book are the small (four liners) poetries at the beginning of most of the chapters, those humorous incidents shared between Rishi and Puneet. Apart from the dialogiue writing which is amazing, the book targets all age groups thus increasing its audience circle. Last but not the least, the title and book cover are exceptionally attractive that will make sure that you read this book.


The book started with a perfect pace, but some of the incidents added seemed useless in the ending since they had no connection with the story. The incidents of Puneet’s college life and his roommates could have been ended and defined properly to give them proper justice. Also, some amount of Literature could have added more sweetness to this wonderful cake.

My take on the book:

The story shuffles between the real and dream life of Puneet where he is fighting between his past and the present life. As mentioned in the blurb, ‘Right since childhood, the world in which we live teach us to bury our ‘bad’ past somewhere inside us and just move on. So deep, that even we can’t possibly dig it back out.’ we try to hide the things so as to live a perfect life in the present. But the book teaches us that, no matter how much you try to hide the things, one fine day they will come out and shake your present, so it’s better to solve things and move on rather than burying them for future excavations.

Besides this, one more important lesson that the book taught me was:

Don’t follow the crowd, follow your heart because the crowd may lead you to your destination but your heart will surely lead you to happiness.

Further, its ending also release a secret message that it’s tough to make choices, but times we have to make some, so it’s better to be prepared for the consequences of our choices and the acts we make. No doubt our choices will give us happiness, but it will definitely bring some losses along.

With a cute love and thriller story, this is an act of teaching these beautiful lessons which is really appreciable. A must read!!
