Language of the book is lucid and written in a simple way to comprehend for any kind of reader. A book which won’t require the use of a dictionary, a book which evens an amateur reader would love to get indulged in. It’s a Bollywood type story. The author has portrayed each and every character with utmost significance of their own and every one of them has done justice to their respective roles throughout the story. The narration of the story is gripping though predictable at some times and unreal-table in few places. The story is fast paced. Father-son duo had beautifully crafted about entrepreneurship, entrepreneurs, start-ups, business achievements and the revolving relationships and the struggles the faced.
Overall an engaging read with twist and turns like Hindi Masala Movies.
