    Biographies sometimes need time and patience to read This one on Rajinikanth the popular South Indian star is uick and easy read The author whose research on the Star looks promising and the way he portrayed makes one enjoy reading the book Writing on such Star as well is also not easy keeping in view various aspects into consideration The author to me succeeded in doing his job well The biography includes various phases of Star's life and his film as well his personal life The author includes in the end of the book the filmography of star from Apoorva Raagangal 1975 to the latest Kochadaiyaan 2012 with the details of year of the film director and the co stars He includes various awards both film and general which the Star won

    A vague look into the man who has become a national phenomenon I was expecting from this book

  3. Vidya Vidya says:

    Helped me become a fan of the phenomenonTill I read this book Rajini was just a trend one I viewed with some bemusement The book helped to contextualize the man his body of work and the reasons for his mass appeal not just in South India or all the countries where South Indians are present but also in markets such as Japan The book is extremely well researched and does not suffer for the lack of personal reminiscences from the Superstar It provides an interesting insight into the man as well as the cult phenomenon that he has become The book has helped me become a fan I am now curious to see his entire body of work especially the earlier movies which have excellent hard hitting stories Most of those were directed by K Balanchander so maybe its time for a book on him as wellAll in all a great read and well worth the cover price since its brought me a new lease of life for Tamil Films as a genre and Rajini as a specific segment within that genre Looking forward to his next release

  6. Shiva Shiva says:

    Not so much of a Biography Rarely reveals anything the hardcore fans haven't heard about But give a lot of insight into how movie 'stories' have been historically 're adapted' into Tamil from various culturescountrieslanguages

  7. Rohit Ghai Rohit Ghai says:

    Expected from the book Turned out that it measures his story from the chronological list of his movies More of a filmography with personal attributes thrown in Nevertheless a good description of the lesser known facts about the superstar and the Tamil film industry

  8. Venkatesh Venkatesh says:

    Decent book A hardcore thalaivar fan will know most of the facts Was looking for some dope about thalaivar

    As correctly said by Mani Ratnamabout the phenomenon of Rajnikanth “That’s its just magic” Rajnikanth is an amazing actor and a humble human being A week back I watch Rajnikanth's movie “Darbar” in theatre and still in 2020 the audience screams and whistles at the larger than life entry I had goosebumps when he was about to appear for the first time in the screen and I didn’t stop myself from screaming and cheering either I don’t think I have ever done this for any other actor Rajni has this magic in him that makes the audience go berserk and makes his fall in love with him I always tell my friends that if they want to see what Rajnikanth is they have to watch his film in the theatre it’s an experience that one can’t miss The atmosphere and the energy in the theatre is something else and one has to be there to feel it My favorite film of Rajni sir is the movie “Thalapathi” and I fell in love with the actor in the movie “Geraftaar” I believe that it had one of the stylish and epic death scene I had ever seen in Indian movies This is book is a complete filmography of Thalaiva and his journey from a bus conductor to a demigod of India good book A Must Read
