Full Credit Goes To RAMENDRA KUMAR That While You Read ‘Mohini’ It Is Impossible To Tell That This Is His First Novel..Such Polish & Finesse Only Comes After A Few Books Are Published.
MOHINI Is Based Or Should One Say Heavily Inspired By Bollywood...This Maybe Classified As Fiction But A Lot Of It Comes From Reel Life Events When The 🎥 Ain’t Whirring.The Resemblances May Be Coincidental But They Too Thinly Disguised To Go Unnoticed.
But It Is This Very Thin Line Between Facts & Fiction That Makes This Book So Enjoyable All 118 Pages Of It Between The Covers.
If MOHINI Is RAMENDRA KUMAR First Foray Then He Sure Has Dug Deep Into The Underbelly Of Bollywood & Shown The Mirror On What Lies On The OtherSide Of Midnight.
This Is One Of Those Books That Compels You To Read It From Cover To Cover Before Taking A Break...Bollywood Buffs Are Bound To Enjoy The Guessing Game Trying To Connect The Names With The Faces!!
You can juxtapose the characters and series of events of this book to that of real life. Ramendra Kumar has penned down this novel in a very descriptive way and the reader can easily breeze through and at the same time keep pace with the occurrence of events. The story is gripping, real and you may never want to leave the book until you finish it.
It briefly describes the cruelty of Bollywood which every Struggle need to pass through. It indeed sheds some light on the so called glamorous world, but if taken a closer second look you will realize how gruesome and horrendous the B-Town is. One has to pay a price for being successful in the Indian Cinema. Talent merely doesn't takes you to places until you tweak with stakeholders involved.
Story starts with Anjali who is the mother of Manga(Mohini) and is set in the alluring backdrop of Studios and Shootings. Anjali's expectations and dreams of achieving success in Bollywood is short lived when a Director tries to molest her in the pretext of offering her better role. Post this incident, Anjali quits acting and prevents her daughter Manga from the ugly environs of Bollywood world. But still nothing could deter Manga(Mohini) to take up Acting as her career, as she was mesmerized by the starlet of this industry since her childhood. Imran Bhai and Vicky abreast Mohini in shaping her career by sketching and executing various plots and succeeds in grabbing better and bigger roles in the movies.
Slowly and steadily she steps up on to the higher levels of acting roles and her career beguns growing exponentially. One of the yesteryear's actors KK notices her during an event and rechristens her to Mohini. Sam - one of the most successful director proposes her for marriage which she gladly accepts. Sam directs one of the most sensational movie to leverage Mohini's acting skills so that Mohini can bag the most coveted award of "Best Actress" in Indian Cinema. Sam's hard work pays off and it gives a boost to Mohini's career.
Post this, Sam asks to quit her acting career because after her marriage he cannot stand seeing her wife romancing with others. Unwillingly, she still accepts Sam condition. She indulges herself in a one night stand with an upcoming actor and Sam leaves her in splits with the help of the underworld as soon as he comes to know about the fling. One series of events leads to others and you will be enthralled with the suspense involved.
No one is our's in Bollywood. There is no room for relations and emotions in the dazzling world of Bollywood. All the glitters is not gold and this is what the author wants to drive home via his Novel. One has to pay a price for being successful in the Indian Cinema.
Do read this novel and you will come to know about the heart wrenching realities of Cinema Industry.
Now to this.
I think Mohini is, arguably, the best work of Ramen ever.
He succeeds in portraying a very real sketch whilst keeping all characters very true to life and not letting their behaviour and the story's make-up go to larger-than-life unreality.
"Mohini..." is extremely fast paced. I finished reading it in 2 hrs 15 mins, in a single seating. It has that Surely you're Joking Mr Feynman: Adventures of a Curious Character type of cant-put-me-down edge to it.
5/5, no qualms.
