An interesting read giving a lot of behind the scenes information about such worthy films.
Technically there is no structure at all...and the author sheepishly move around from one fact to another.
It gets boring after the first few chapters, so my review would be to skip it!
Very well crafted and well written to keep reader's interest alive all throughout.
And commendable research work done by the writer.
Somewhere, somehow; with a varying magnitude; everyone is affected by Bollywood- the Industry. It has always kept us involved, through thoughts- engrossed or abandoned; through talks- detailed or outlined. Keeping us all connected to it.
The book talks about how some movies instantaneously connect with us and how some might not have created a buzz at the box Office when released but still they have reached the masses, in fragments or whole.
How they too have a story behind them, a story which can still keep us engrossed. A story that’s still worth hearing about.
These stories followed by the interactions the author had with the creators of such movies will keep you connected.
Such stories narrated with the personal touch of the author, has definitely given us a light read to be enjoyed over the weekend, a book that can make it into our bags as a travel companion.
Well, my reading experience of the book was breezy and yes, I also learned a lot about the movies chosen by the author. At the same time, I did not agree with so many films on the author's list and that is bound to happen with any other reader as well.
The book is written in a very tongue-in-cheek style which worked for me. There were places I could not help but chuckle or guffaw, sometimes at the sheer ridiculousness of Indian cinema. And yet there is so much that Amborish has spoken about in this book - about the select movies and also about the ones that aren't on the list. The sheer amount of research done is staggering. From small things to know to the ones that surprise you instantly.
My favourite pieces from the book: Kaagaz Ke Phool, Chashme Buddoor, Silsila, Katha, Chameli Ki Shaadi, Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar, No Smoking (a highly underrated movie in my opinion), and the most brilliant piece on The Ramsay Brothers. "In A Cult of Their Own" makes for a perfect monsoon read. It is a light, interesting, and sometimes funny read as well. The kind of book that will not disappoint for sure.
