Naman Ramachandran's marvellous biography recounts Rajini's career in meticulous detail, tracing his incredible cinematic journey from his very first film, Apoorva Raagangal, in to memorable forays into Bollywood like Andha Kanoon and Hum, from landmark films like Billa, Thalapathi and Annamalai to the mega successes of Baashha, Muthu, Padayappa, Chandramukhi, Sivaji and Enthiran.
Along the way, the book provides rare insights into the Thalaivar's personal life, from his childhood days to his times of struggle-when he was still Shivaji Rao Gaekwad-and then his eventual stardom: Rajinikanth has not written his memoirs; this book is the closest we are likely to get to the definitive Rajini story.

121 Best English Books by Indian Authors: The Must-Read List (2018)
Jan 22, Aruna Kumar Gadepalli rated it really liked it Shelves: Biographies sometimes need time and patience to read. This one on Rajinikanth the popular South Indian star is quick and easy read. The author whose research on the Star looks promising and the way he portrayed makes one enjoy reading the book. Writing on such Star as well is also not easy keeping in view various aspects into consideration. The author to me succeeded in doing his job well.
The biography includes various phases of Star's life and his film as well his personal life. The author inc Biographies sometimes need time and patience to read.
The author includes in the end of the book the filmography of star from "Apoorva Raagangal" to the latest "Kochadaiyaan" , with the details of year of the film, director and the co-stars. He includes various awards both film and general which the Star won. Feb 21, Ranjit rated it liked it. A vague look into the man who has become a national phenomenon. I was expecting more from this book. Dec 30, Vidya rated it really liked it.
The book helped to contextualize the man, his body of work and the reasons for his mass appeal - not just in South India or all the countries where South Indians are present but also in markets such as Japan.
The book is extremely well researched - and does not suffer for the lack of personal reminiscences from the Superstar. It provides an interesting insight into the "Helped me become a fan of the phenomenon" Till I read this book, Rajini was just a trend - one I viewed with some bemusement. It provides an interesting insight into the man as well as the cult phenomenon that he has become.
The book has helped me become a fan - I am now curious to see his entire body of work - especially the earlier movies which have excellent, hard hitting stories.
Most of those were directed by K Balanchander - so maybe its time for a book on him as well! All in all - a great read and well worth the cover price - since its brought me a new lease of life for Tamil Films as a genre and Rajini as a specific segment within that genre. Looking forward to his next release! Expected a lot from the book. Turns out to be a hotchpotch of Wikipedia styled movie plots,quotes from oft-quoted popular speeches and eulogies from directors and actresses who have worked with him.
This cannot qualify as Definitive biography at all. Maybe,the author thought that anything with Rajinikanth in it will work big time. Sadly,such magic is restricted to the silver screen. We are still waiting for the definitive biography of Rajinikanth. Maybe,Baradwaj Rangan can do justice. This one's a Racy Read - an incredibly well written book - comprehensive and original analysis that provides a wealth of information at a rapid pace without ever getting boring.
A page turner which I was unable to put down from the get go. I loved it so much that I ended up buying additional copies to gift my friends. Must have for your bookshelf. Jan 24, Shiva rated it it was ok. Not so much of a Biography.
Rarely reveals anything the hardcore fans haven't heard about.
May 10, Rohit Ghai rated it liked it. Expected more from the book. Turned out that it measures his story from the chronological list of his movies. More of a filmography with personal attributes thrown in.
Nevertheless, a good description of the lesser known facts about the superstar and the Tamil film industry Dec 26, Venkatesh rated it liked it. Decent book. A hardcore thalaivar fan will know most of the facts. Was looking for some more dope about thalaivar.
Well written, well researched and objective. Good read. A compilation rather than A biography Good if you know very little about superstar. Not so much, if you are a long-time fan like me. If the movie descriptions are removed, whats left is superstars speeches, now available on YouTube, and some rare interviews from people associated with him.
I expected a definitive biography. Mar 29, Manu rated it liked it Shelves: The definitive biography of perhaps the biggest star that India has seen - THE superstar Rajinikanth - is quite a big thing to bite off.
At pages, I'm not too sure it does complete justice. This is not to say that the author hasn't tried, but to me, the contents just didn't seem enough. In fact, it was in the second half that I felt he was warming up to the task at hand.
The first half includes the early years of Rajinikanth, his entry into movies, and the first decade and a half of his movi The definitive biography of perhaps the biggest star that India has seen - THE superstar Rajinikanth - is quite a big thing to bite off. The first half includes the early years of Rajinikanth, his entry into movies, and the first decade and a half of his movies. The author does try hard to remain objective and not be in awe of the object of his attention, but that's obviously not an easy task.
What results is a mix of two things - a kind of retrofit applied to his formative years which tries to show that he was always meant to be the Superstar, and an almost bare factual filmography. It's probably not the author's fault because he might have found it difficult to find anecdotal material from that era, or people might have altered their memory to fit the image of the superstar who exists now. Either way, the first half swings between these two, and does not really make a great read in terms of narrative.
You'll love it if you're a Rajini facts junkie and it also shows the amount of research the author has done, as he tries to explain the milieu and the context of life, culture, movies and politics of the era, mostly in Tamil Nadu, but sometimes even beyond that.
