My review might be a bit biased as I grew up loving the man his skewed movies and his mannerism But nothing can take away from the fact that the man Dev saab was effervescence personified He was obviously so full of life It would a blessing to live a life the way he did A big life and a long and fruitful one His joy for life was indeed infectious Yes the man had his faults But then who doesn t Okay enough of the man The book was honest It was entertaining But when he switches between illusion and reality it becomes a bit tedious A straightforward narrative would have been enjoyable Still I cannot help but give the man and the book a 5 star rating Unlike other books that I review I know that Dev saab will not be reading my review Wish he could and respond to me
