Expectedfrom 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 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 cultures countries languages. Decent book A hardcore thalaivar fan will know most of the facts Was looking for somedope about thalaivar Well written, well researched and objective Good read. A vague look into the man who has become a national phenomenon I was expectingfrom this book. Helped me become a fan of the phenomenon Till 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 Helped me become a fan of the phenomenon Till 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 well All 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
