The Krishna Key: Ashwin Sanghi

A book which has remained on my bucket list for a very long time, finally got read by me.

To be honest, by the name of the book I thought of it to be a philosophical book on finding spirituality and stuff. But on turning it over I realised it was a mythological thriller.

A fictious storyline follows professor Ravi Saini as he tries to find Krishna’s secret while trying to escape a serial killer who believes to be the Kalki Avatar.

I must admit Ashwin Sanghi is a very good historical writer. All the facts that he brings regarding the Hindu Mythology are wonderful. They surprise me and even bring a lot of respect for my ethnicity.

This book is indeed well researched.

But where Sanghi excels in facts his thriller lags. The story plot is a mess of multiple characters, half of them existing without any main significance or impact. It has historians, professors, lawyers, cops, detectives, dons, serial killers, and the list is endless.

The story starts off with a lot of potential and speed but then it just keeps retarding.

Paying attention to the Hindu mythology Sanghi has kept 108 chapters in his book. But on stretching the book it made a lot of plot holes. Unnecessary character backgrounds took us away from the main essence of the story.

The excess drama and foolish actions of the protagonist were cringe worthy.

The unlikely romance in the end made the book lose some more points from my favour.

Krishna Key would have been a far better book as an exploration story than a thriller.


Nevertheless, I recommend this book to those who want to read the story of lord Krishna and learn some interesting facts on Hindu Mythology. Not recommended if you are expecting and exciting thriller.

Overall, 2.5 stars.

In the end, quoting from the book, ‘The philosopher is more important than the stone’ and it is reading the book that is ultimately more important than its review. So, if Krishna Key is your calling, then do read it.
