Snapshot: This book is a novel approach to deciphering the dialogues of Superstar Rajnikant with their deep implications in life and business. 
 
The Review:  There have been many great actors in Indian cinema but in my opinion there are just two stars, who when appear on the 70mm screen one does not see anyone but them, they are Rajnikanth and Amitabh Bachchan. India is a nation where Cricket & Movies are a religion. We are very fond of quoting movie dialogues in our conversations and remember our favorite ones by heart. I even remember entire movies by heart. So when the author approached me to review this book I was fascinated. Who thought these dialogues could mean so much and teach about life and business? And who better than Rajni sir whose dialogues and stardom reach the heights like never before.
 
Positives:  The book is very well structured and beautifully presented.  Each dialogue is accompanied by a picture, the author then begins explaining its meaning in brief, followed by a crisp implication in life and business.
 
A fun and motivating read. The originality of the idea is commendable.
 
Negatives: The font size is small.  
 
The Verdict:  The most entertaining way to get inspired! Go grab it!. 3.5 stars on 5.
