Book Review: India Today Mahesh Special

Ever since the news of "India Today's Special edition of Mahesh Babu" was out, the hero's fans have been waiting for the  release of the book and finally, the book has been released after two months of the news was broke out. Let us have a mini review on this book. 

POSITIVES:

* The book, consisting 122 pages, appeared to be a library edition to all Mahesh's fans as it has given A to Z details of Mahesh Babu. The quality of the book is good.

* A glance at Mahesh's movies as a child artist and as a hero were given. Interviews of Superstar Krishnna and Mahesh's directors such as Puri Jagannadh, Srinu Vaitla and Trivikram were given. 

* A special article on Mahesh Babu's brand endorsements was seen. 

* Rare photos of Mahesh's family members such as Krishna, Indira Devi, Ramesh Babu, Mahesh as a child etc. were published. 

* An interview of Mahesh's better half Namratha has been published. 

* The magazine mentioned Mahesh Babu is far away from affairs with heroines. Mahesh Babu's Mr.Clean image is well focused. 

NEGATIVES: 

* The magazine told many lies on Mahesh Babu's films to prove him as a number one hero.

* In the editorial, 'Rajakumarudu' was mentioned that the movie broke all the records of tollywood. In fact, the movie got the status of just a 'hit'. 

* Mahesh Babu was mentioned as number one hero many times. In reality, only Mahesh Babu's fans accept it now. 

* 'Dookudu' was mentioned as the number one hit. However, it was no way on par with the collections of 'Magadheera' then. 

* As the magazine repeatedly tried to focus Mahesh Babu as a 'number one', chances of other heroes' fans stay away from reading this magazine may possible. 

BOTTOM-LINE: A memorable book for Mahesh fans, a hilarious book for other heroes' fans and an informative book for cine lovers.
