The Blurb:

When the superstar diva of the past decade doesn’t want to play the hero’s mother on screen, she insists that she be reshaped into the most beautiful woman in the world…by any means. 

This is just one of the many odd situations which plastic surgeon Dr. Dhruv faces in Mumbai. He has dealt with tyrannical bosses and finicky patients while undergoing his training, during which he has also won over a stunning doctor as his life partner. But satisfying the movie stars is a different ball game, because every girl wishes to have bee-stung lips, and every guy wants to flaunt a six-pack abdomen without working too hard. And all this while, he has to resist losing his balance over his ravishing female clients. Dr. Dhruv’s journey surpasses even a masala movie for humour, drama and action. In debunking many a myth about cosmetic surgeries, the book will enthrall those who can do Anything to Look Hot. 

My Review:

       With everyone trying to look beautiful, it is the era where plastic surgeries are in demand. Plastic Surgeons who can give the necessary makeover and make people look and feel beautiful are considered close to God. This book is the story of one such plastic surgeon who strives constantly to sustain in this fast paced industry. With an intention of operating on film stars and super models, Dr. Dhruv moves to Mumbai, the city of dreams. But it is not easy to establish oneself. Take this journey with Dr. Dhruv as he struggles to find his foothold and then balance his workload as he becomes successful. This novel gives you an insight into the mystic world of plastic surgery where everyone wants to get operated on but no one wants to make it public.

Things I Liked:

  • This books gives an insight into the world of plastic surgery which is the most sought after and yet mysterious world.
  • The different, unique and realistic concept manages to grab the reader's interest for some time. 
  • The secrets spilled about the actors' visit and their desires to get operated upon just to look hot makes an interesting and sometimes funny read.
  • The language is simple and the editing is good.


Things I Disliked:

  • Boredom quotient was high. The story line didn't have that element to keep the readers' interest sustained throughout.
  • The pace was too slow for my liking.
  • After some time, there are too many characters and too many additional stories but instead of making the story exciting, it does the reverse. 


Verdict:

       Though there was some interesting facts, the overall story line wasn't good enough to engage me till the end. The pace too took away the fun of reading. So I would advice you to go for it only if you are alright with these drawbacks.

PS: Thank you Author Paradise for the review copy. Though it was a review copy, the review posted is my honest and unbiased opinion.

My Rating:


Until the next review,
Keep Reading :)

Love,
Starry Eyed Reader :)
