    Surrogate Author is the kinda book Devdas would have loved. - Sudhir Solman, Programme Manager, Helix Biolabs.
    Surrogate Author is a fresh, fun book about Devdas fans. - Ruchita Shah, Business Analyst, MNC
    Devdas is lovelorn, Authdas is booklorn. - S. Kumar, Project Manager, IT Product Company
    End up asking for more! Authdas a LOL! - Raghunath Babu Are, Software Engineer, Ex - Yahoo! employer.

    Who is Authdas?

    I wondered how difficult it is for a woman to be a surrogate mother irrespective of the objective. Writing few books have taught - true Devdas are authors. If author's adopt similar concept of surrogacy than book can evolve. We have many examples to quote, Amitabh Bachchan, Shahrukh Khan and others that symbolize the surrogacy of continue doing movie irrespective of critics and box office result. Authdas is Author das! Plot of Authdas character - I taught if Authdas (booklorn - book sick) as Devdas (lovelorn - love sick), whose love is write a novel, Paro. Authdas needs some inspiration to write Paro and if that inspiration was Chandramukhi, how the story would be?

    Story of Surrogate Author

    Keeping the above plot, I looked into various movies - few movies that often people continue to enjoy are Devdas, Sholay and DDLJ. Keep those baseline into mind Surrogate Author book was written. The book is in-line with Devdas. I assume that people, who love devdas would perhaps relate and link to Authdas. I thank Sanjay Leela Bhansali for giving an visually stunning movie, Devdas.

    What does this book provide?

    There are two sections - First section has the story of Authdas. It is a drama based on Bollywood movies Devdas, Mohabbatein, Sholay and DDLJ. Second section has some inputs to begin as a writer.

    Who should pick this book?

    The book is meant for aspiring authors, people who enjoy drama, movies and entertainment.

    What is the objective behind the writing?

    To encourage aspiring authors and continue to write because they love it. A part of fund will be given to educate a girl child.

    A Bollywood LOL!

    Here is our Authdas! You guessed it right, the author form of Devdas is returning back from London in hopes to continue his childhood dream book, Paro. However, after what happens at Fantasy Mohini's birthday party, Paro seems distant to Authdas. In a rage, he leaves home and accidentally lands at the house of Chandramukhi, the inspiration. By the time, he goes back to Paru, she's already handed over to another author. At the end of a bollywood climax, Authdas wins over Paro which becomes a b...

    Good jumbles Up Mixture of Movies and Characters

    I Got this Book From Santosh for an Honest review & I will try to fo Justice to it.
    This is kind of Spoof + Play + comic + help for future writers.

    The story is based on DDLJ and Devdas movies. Cahracters inspired from Devdas and ending is more like DDLJ.

    AUthdas is a want to writer who has not met his BOOK Paro for sometime.
    He comes home and find his family against and the drama continues.

    I liked the concept part of it and also a little bit of humor here and there.
    A worksheet in the en...

    A Decent Read

    Santosh Avvannavar and Shilpa Patil joined hands to come up with “Surrogate Author”, a hilarious take on the journey of becoming an author. It is loosely based on the film ‘Devdas’ by Sanjay Leela Bhansali where the aspiring author “Authdas” has been described as book-lorn or book-sick. He needs immense inspiration to write his dream book “Paro” and the story thus goes on in a humorous as well as satirical manner. The book has a separate section which contains some valuable inputs on how to...

    One Dollar Book, But Gave the Pleasure Worth Two!!!

    One thing that I loved about Santosh's Book (this is the second one I read), is that they are short sweet and fulfills the promises it makes.

    The Book starts with a passion following introduction by the Author and takes you to the entire journey of Authdas (Shadow brother of Devdaas). And follows exact story of Devdaas with a humorous twist.

    What I liked is that at the end of the book, the author has taken an extra effort for all who always wanted to write a book, but could not. Nice tips w...

    Mini Dramatic Novel

    This is a mini dramatic novel where the book plays the role of finding its author. Writing a review is actually next to impossible because one must feel it which you can get it only when you read it. This book also gives you an opportunity to analyse yourself and helps you in becoming a writer yourself. I have been reading the books of Santosh for a while and all I could say is this - He is one author whom you cannot predict about his writing style as he keeps changing from one book to anothe...

    A dhamaka in small size, truly!

    I thank the author for sending me this book, in exchange for an honest review.

    I have never read a book as funny as this, where being anything other than an engineer is being equal to a terrorist! Amazing 47 pages!

    This is the story of an engineer turned author Authdas {a guy very similar to Devdas}. Authdas always wanted to be an author and write his first book named Paro. Paro is his childhood obsession and an unfulfilled dream. But there are so many people who stand in his way. It his lo...

    Surrogate Author

    Most of the time, we have seen in movies or read in books about love stories that exist between a man and a woman. Love triangles, sacrifices, happy endings, all these exist in such stories. But how interesting would be a love story that exists between an aspiring author and his first written book? Santosh Avvannavar and Shilpa Patil, in their book ‘The Surrogate Author’, have taken inspiration from the legendary Bolywood movie ‘Devdas’ and have beautifully woven the Devdas love story, rewrit...
