Reviews of Aliens in Delhi:

The narrative has different parallel plots that are intriguing and engaging. And all these plots are somehow interconnected, which make for a strong narrative — HINDUSTAN TIMES 

The author has extensively used tropes to raise geopolitical issues. It will not be difficult for a discerning reader to understand what Khan is actually hinting at. The narrative is pacy and full of twists and turns THE TELEGRAPH 

The words fly off the page and yet shock you into reading them again slowly to appreciate the auanced way in which the author has carefully yet callously, craftily yet casually 'launched' certain words in a sentence - words that leap into immediate meanings with a certain depth layered with a nonchalance' that is so original that it blows your mind —THE PIONEER
