book is ais a piece of black comedy by Rajesh Devraj and Meren Imchen Superficially this is an autobiographical tale of a chimpanzee called Sudarshan and his life and struggle in Bollywood starlight But under the covers this is a deep dark satire on the human condition and the man s search for a meaningful life The tale references several Bollywood heroes slyly and parodies and riffs on the tale on which Amitabh Bachchan movies are based Man is struck by unfortunate disaster Man works his way through the system and then comes to dominate it by sheer merit and street smarts And there is a a final downfall of the hero from grace The book uses this narrative but many of the parts are played by animals eeping in the theme of the book The Chimpanzee can never be eual to a human no matter how successful as he has no pedigreeThe black white watercolor and ink based artwork is interesting The fact that the book is printed on handmade coarse paper makes it stand our form the other graphic novels A delightful read.
