MATINEE MEN: A Journey through Bollywood by Roshmila Bhattacharya

I selected "MATINEE MEN: A Journey through Bollywood" by Roshmila Bhattacharya, simply based on its cover. In the last 3 years, I have read many books based on Bollywood, these books take me through the journey of Indian celebrities. From the cover, I judged that I would come to know at least 6 different personalities in this book. But the book has more to offer.

Coming to the content, there are 13 great actors discussed in this book. I know each of these actors has painted a bigger canvas to cover them all under 250 pages. But the author has covered a few of their important moments in this book. Each chapter also contains part of the interview that the author has covered for that celebrity. The tone of the interview is smooth and interesting. The language used is simple and easy, written for all age groups. It is a perfect read for movie buffs. 

The chapters I liked the most are

1) Ashok Kumar - Decoding Dadamoni

2) Dev Anand - Evergreen at Eighty

3) Dharmendra - Hero with a Heart

4) Farooque Shaikh - The Extraordinary Actor

5) Irrfan Khan - The Warrior

With the attractive hardcover design, one cannot ignore this book. Giving 4 out of 5 to this interesting book.
