Love Reincarnated by C. Sreedharan deals with the theme of reincarnation. Ravi, Shanti, and their teenage daughter Devi come to live in the small town of Chennai. Across the street lives Hari, an elderly person. Devi is suffering from a rare condition that causes a lack of interest in everything. They start visiting the nearby Sri Krishna temple and things start changing slowly for Devi. There are signs of improvement and they praise the Lord. Devi soon starts becoming attached to Hari and looks forward to being in his company all the time. They put it down to infatuation but Devi is deeply in love with Hari.

It is an interesting theme based on the Hindu belief of reincarnation. Hindus believe that only the body dies and the soul moves on and reincarnates again. But the soul always seeks its loved ones, whatever form it takes on in this new life. In this story, it is strange that someone as young as Devi can fall in love with an old man. Finally, they realize that they must have been lovers in a previous life. There is a lot of intrigue, mystery, and also suspense while trying to figure out the young Devi's liking for Hari.

Love Reincarnated reflects the distinct voice of the writer. It speaks about the Hindu beliefs of afterlife and reincarnation. It also speaks about the power of love and how you can always be united with the ones you love, no matter how many lives you live.

Mr. C.Sreedharan's book Love Reincarnated is a revelation. Having known him closely for a number of years as a person with varied interests in fields like music, art and cultural, his literary talents were left under wraps. It is difficult to write a review on this book without taking into account his personality traits and philosophy. This book has been penned in his indomitable style of English as spoken in years gone by. The absolute down to earth description of the life style in rural Kerala and the deception of the ancestral home, customs and beliefs make one wonder if there is some personal connection with the author's own life in the narrative.The build up to Devi's infatuation to very elderly 'Uncle' is fascinating but with an undertone of an equally passionate feeling Sree has for this rather young girl. There seems to be a tussle in the Author's mind about the relative roles spiritually, astrology and scientifically in the lives of individuals.Are these three aspects of influences compartmentalized or are they intertwined or even complimentary is difficult to conceptualize from the book. The early years of Sree and his love for Gouri are described in a very innocent and simple manner. The Author makes an attempt though debatable at proving scientifically that rebirth is a reality. The climax of the book comes as a bolt from the blue wherein Devi is depicted as the reincarnation of Gouri both longing for Sree's undivided and unadulterated love. This makes interesting and light heated reading
