I was hesitant about purchasing the book after reading the negative/hate comments, but realised soon they were more of a personal (reviewers) statement than a reference to the book.
The author has done a thorough job with the interviews with SS, cross-referencing when other characters were involved. There is no sleaziness but an honest telling of the story as narrated. The chapters are well-designated, with early life, family, and career both film and politics, appropriately covered. She has skilfully captured his voice and style throughout. His falling out with his brothers (also cross-referenced), his emotional upheaval at the time of his marriage, his work fraternity, and his children are there with scratches et al. You genuinely feel his child-like hurt at being misunderstood. His mention of Reena Roy as a matter-of-fact incidence in his life surely deserves praise. There are many actors who would omit mentioning the names and duplicitously proclaim it as courtesy. This after the whole world has read about their affair.
Being a fan of Amitabh Bachchan’s, it was interesting to find out about his biting the hand that fed him in his early phase. Not so much mentioned by SS himself but also corroborated by others, e.g. people of Salim Khan’s stature and a few more. This was in reference to SS being removed from films and the distasteful episode during the shooting of Kaala Pathhar. AB would deem it being diplomatic but it smacks more of hypocrisy and pettiness on AB's part.
A reliably good read for anyone interested in autobiographies and biographies.
