    Khullam Khulla ...Rishi Kapoor Uncensored

    I like Rishi Kapoor esp in his second innings as a actor but its his bindas...no hold barred attitude that made me buy this book .
    Super engaging and entertaining finished this one in jet speed ...
    oru section undu where in he detail about the music sitting in the 70ies and 80ies ..about different style of approach towards music by filmmakers he worked with..super annu ah part ..eppo ulla music direction reethikale patti singersinte interviewsil ninum thanne kettu kurachu ariyavunathu kondu ..one can't help but be in awe of that era ...

    As the tittle suggest the book is Khullam Khulla ...well largely ...it appears to me that he is guarded about his personal life in the book (for obvious reasons) but otherwise one get a feel that he is sincere with this effort .He have talked about the personal equations that he share with his family, friends and colleagues without any sugar coating . I think only someone who is honest from heart can admit to their mistakes and have no qualms in expressing their true self ...

    rasam ulla oru kaariyam ...startingil forward message undu by Ranbir and the book ends with a afterward by Neetu singh/kapoor ...athu randum vaayikumpo nammuku manasilavum ...Rishi kapoor is a kind of person who approach things only from their perspective ....athayathu people around him will have to adjust themselves and function accordingly ....

    @ ballu it is interesting to make an observation on things that appeal to different people from the same book..while it was the toy portion for you ..it could be the moving portion that traces ammu's death, or the unfortunate incident that occurs to estha at abhilash talkies or the manner in which she depicts the life of paravans..through wit..or humorous segments involving Kochu Maria's character 'Et Tu Brute" that seal the deal for me..I feel the book could be a tough grind for most..because pop cultural references are hard to relate to...we are not exactly used to "Sound Of Music", "Elvis Presley" , the only true malayalee reference could be the one to chemmeen..but in the book, she pitches the whole family as 'outsiders' so that doesn't become an issue..iniyum kurachund complete cheyanund....but felt like posting a comment after seeing the discussion here.

    The better man vaayichu..anita nair's debut novel...the core theme of the book is a friendship between two aged people..the loner, mukundan and painter bhasi who has the knack of cleansing people's mind..the portions that trace mukundan's early life are packed with cliches..with his father, a strict patriarch coming across as a stereotype..but the book started to work for me when focus shifted to mukundan..the small tragic romance that occurs in life, during his lecturer days is nicely etched..and the portion following that involving a housewife who gets charged for murder too stands out. The final portions do not entirely work and change in tone event tone to overt drama feels evident. still a decent first time novel, keralites will relate to it well.
