Even for a non science person like me who knows barely anything about physics, this book has been fascinating to say the least. Feynman was a remarkable character for his day and the passion and fun he brought to his work has no parallels. Reminds me of Aamir Khan in 3 idiots...
All in all a highly enjoyable book, goes to show that genius scientists are human too and not infallible or boring as they are made out to be
Frank, honest, funny, no emotional/dramatic stuff and yet appealing so much to the reader for his humility and playing down the genius in him, read this book to know more about scientists
Rituja's book says all the right things about weight loss and also addresses many commonly misplaced notions about weight loss. It also gives some useful information about common health issues faced by women like PCOD, low/high thyroid etc. Some of the real life conversations she's had with her clients are hilarious.
Negatives?? Well the book can get a bit preachy and we all know its easier said than done to lose weight. She actually asks people to grow vegetables on a farm or buy from outside MUmbai which can be quite impractical for the average working woman!!Also though it looked very cute to publish Kareena's foreword in her own handwriting...its illegible in many places!!
All in all its written in a very informal casual style and has quite a bit of humor. Strictly for women though...men may get bored reading it
Casting wise and acting wise good. Some of the characters I like the owner of the Massage parlour where Ruth (Kalki) works, Naseeruddin Shah one of Ruth's clients ironically a father like figure but not the same as being a boilogical father.
Chuttiapa as the villain cast in a very very different mould from the normal Mumbai gangsters one has seen so far.
So some interesting characters, interesting story but not gripping enough, dialogues could have been stronger especially towards the end. Film meanders a bit here and there, I felt Kalki was well casted and acting wise okay there was one scene where she really stood out...when she explains to her boyfriend why she is searching so hard for her father. That's probably for me the best scene in the film
Though I did not buy this book from flipkart (but from an airport after flipping thru some pages), I have not regretted at all.
Thoroughly enjoyed reading it...what a masterful entertainer...couldnt help laughing in so many places...if everyone wrote their autobiographies with so much candour and wit, our knowledge would have been so much richer.
I could not put down this book from the moment I started reading it....even skipped my tean and dinner!!
Loved every word and every chapter, Mr Mehta you rock and I am your fan forever.
My respect for your profession and you has gone up ten fold.
finished reading a truly one of its kind book "Mafia Queens of Mumbai".....Hussain Zaidi (the same guy who wrote Black Friday) has pieced together stories of some amazing women who dared to be part of the underworld....for me Sapna didi who dared to take on Dawood stood out as bravest, some like Monica were just gangsters' molls...all the stories are vivid and compelling...these women came from diverse backgrounds and cultures and in almost all cases it was a matter of choice and not force....grab it and read it...highly recommended!!!
I bought the VCD with a lot of expectations but was terribly disappointed.
Movie is about Ranbir and Nargis and their love story. But its very disjointed, some sections are not very clear like for eg why Ranbir was thrown out of his house....why he goes and stays in Hazrat Nizmuddin. Shammi Kapoor's role is tiny and not of any substance,
The biggest disappointment is Nargis. She is terrible at acting for a role which requires a lot of depth and emotions.
The only thing good about this movie is Ranbir and his acting prowess which kind of holds up the movie. Found the music decent but otherwise the script is weak and the story and plot a let down.
