Really insightful!!!!My nephew wanted this book, so he asked me to get it for him. I bought the book and thought, before I give it to him, why not flip through its pages. I started, and I must say, could not stop until I was done with this. My nephew, as usual, was angry with me, but later when I explained to him he simply said, "so uncle you see, us, the new generation do know how to pay respect...."

R D BURMAN THE MAN THE MUSICOne of the best books on Bollywood Music. Excellent writing with details of the most famous and not so popular numbers composed by RD. Enjoyed reading it. OK there are couple of points though which was not so palatable to me. One the continuous refrain in the book of trying to say SD Burmans music had a lot of work by RD. Second the deliberate playing up of Kisore compared to Rafi was most unnecessary. Like saying Rafi had difficulty singing O Haseena.. Well except for these the book is a great read...

Amazing book - must read for fans of Hindi film musicI absolutely loved this book. The amount of research that has gone into this book is amazing. yet it is written in a free-flowing, fun kind of way - giving the story of musicians in Bollywood who remain mostly in the background, and yet have given us so much wonderful music over the years. Highly recommended for old hindi music fans.

Very nice read !If you are a die hard RDB fan and want to read some real informative biography - without any bias, go ahead - buy this one and enjoy. Crisply written and definitely a page turner. Also, if you are a movie quiz buff, you might love the various anecdotes in this book. Overall, amazing !!!

Amazing work of researchThis book is an intensely researched book, the inspiration for which is one single person. A must read even for people who are not into the technically finer points of music, yet it beautifully describes the journey of this man. Also one gets an insight into the film and music cultures of the times. Strangely enough, it has not taken inputs from Asha Bhosle who could probably given more insights into the talents of this man. Overall, a balanced book by a couple of erudite worshippers of the man and his music.
