Yash Chopra by Rachel Dwyer [in AsianWeek]

Yash ChopraOne of India’s most enduring filmmakers, Yash Chopra is known for his lavish, fantastically romantic films. Dwyer, obviously an avid fan and self-professed friend, offers the life story of a man whose life motto is “family, films and food.”  Like the Mother India title above, this book could definitely have used another edit or two, although Dwyer is at her best when offering summaries and analyses of Chopra’s films – although a limited word count, there, might have served the overall book well.
