One thing I love the most about all the books of Rishi Vohra is his ability to make the story seem so real and plausible. The words literally come alive on the pages, as you visualize scene after scene. I have been reading every work of his since his debut in 2013, Once Upon The Tracks of Mumbai and this single ability of his, makes reading his books simply enthralling.

When I was approached by him, yet again to review his next work I was truly overwhelmed. It is one thing for a reader to like an

Story of the book –

The story is about the struggling life of Rudra who, very clear from the title of the book, stammers. From a very young age, he wanted to be an actor but due to his stammering and low self confidence, it became a far away dream. He was humiliated in school, college and even in work (he worked as an assistant director). He was a piece of joke to people. Rudra also denied going to the US to his elder sister Supriya to pursue his MBA degree and settle down. He wanted to follow hi

Its been a long time since I have read such an engaging book. I am sure you would love it, too.

The story revolves around life of Rudra Talpade, the young protagonist. His dream to become an actor in Bollywood seems to be faced with only one hurdle - he stammers.

This is a tale of failure, endurance, enthusiasm to grasp any opportunity that comes in your way and finally, success. Anyone who ever had a dream but has been held back by self doubt or opinion of others, should read this book. Here's a

The book was a sweet and simple read.

The concept of the book was really nice, that how a person overcomes all the obstacles in his life to achieve something great. The author sends a strong message to his readers through this, that we should never ever tell ourselves any bullshit story, that stand between us and our dreams, as to why we cannot achieve it.

The story revolves around a man in his late twenties, who is struggling hard to make it big in the Bollywood industry. Currently, he was the as

I always enjoy reading author Rishi Vohra's books. I have read and enjoyed his Once Upon the Tracks of Mumbai and Hifi in Bollywood, so when the author contacted me about his latest, I Am M-M-Mumbai, I was elated.

All of Rishi's books are set in Mumbai, a city I don't visit frequently and one that I'm not fond of either. But there's something so charming and engrossing in the way the author describes his

MY SUMMARY:
Well, Title and the cover of the book is saying everything itself. And when we say Mumbai, glamour world and its struggles immediately come into our mind. Yes! It is a story of a young ambitious boy of Mumbai who want to become an actor but he stammers. His stammering always brought him into humiliating situations and that crashed his confidence in himself. He was adjusting with his life but a heart break made his situation worst. He became drunken. But as we all know, when we want so

An ideal Hindi movie script. That’s what I thought after going through a couple of chapters. Very light reading. Just like going for one of the typical potboilers of the Hindi film industry facetiously called Bollywood. So if you are travelling or are stressed out and want to read something, read this book. It is not bad. It is very dramatic just like the Hindi movies are.
It is a story about a young boy whose passion it is to be an actor in the film industry but is thwarted as he stammers. Henc

The story is a tale of a boy named 'Rudra Talpade' who is a stutterer and at the same time a wishful thinker with a dream to be on big screen. He is a person with good looks and a good heart. There are very few people in his life who knows him as a person other than a stammerer. This story strongly explains that 'life is not a bed of roses' ,but it can surely be made so if the seeds are planted and nurtured nicely. Rudra's life is truly shaped by the women in his life, and all of them had their ...more

It’s all about achieving dreams. Every one thrives to achieve something in life. The one who works towards the dream becomes successful and the one who doesn’t end in mediocrity. Rudra’s life is among the earlier one.

Rishi Vohra’s stories make a Bollywood experience. I am M-M-Mumbai is of no different. The story of a young stammering aspirer and his path to success makes a complete Bollywood package.
