Rajinikanth is, quite simply, the biggest superstar cinema-crazy India has ever seen. His stylized dialogues and screen mannerisms are legion, and his guy-next-door-cum-superhero image has found a hysterically appreciative following among millions of moviegoers.
Naman Ramachandran s marvellous biography recounts Rajini s career in meticulous detail, tracing his incredible cinematic journey from Apoorva Raagangal (1975) to Kochadaiyaan (2013). 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: revealing how a legend was born.

Naman Ramachandran was placed on Planet Earth with the express purpose of writing the definitive biography of Superstar Rajinikanth. Fate intervened, however, and he was separated at birth from his noble purpose by a metaphorical Kumbh Mela of sorts. His life journey took him across the world where he became a film critic with Sight & Sound, a film journalist covering South Asia for Variety and the UK and Ireland for Cineuropa, and the author of the book Lights, Camera, Masala: Making Movies in Mumbai, besides a few film scripts. A chance encounter with a Penguin revealed the Thalaivar tattoo seared deep into his soul, and the epiphany that followed resulted in this book.Review:
A highly readable account ... combines the enthusiasm of a self-avowed fanboy with the clinical detachment of a professional critic --Sunday Indian
Does complete justice in explaining the Rajinikanth phenomenon ... readers will find themselves amazed by the man Rajinikanth really is --Dna
