Candid unspeakable truths and confession of life

By Dr. Asif Anwar Alig

And then One Day: A Memoir, by Naseeruddin Shah, Hamish Hamilton, an imprint of Penguin Books, Gurgaon, Year2014, 316pp, Indian Rupeese699, Hard.

Only few celebrities dare to laugh at them in their memoirs to contemplate mystified aftereffects. Theater cum film artist Naseeruddin Shah speaks out his heart rebelliously about life in And then One Day: A Memoir to confront the usual allegories. His exceptionally frank and bounteously humourous book is equally engaging.


Perceptions on Shah are change by learning unknown and stimulating facts about him. Prototypical revelations since his birth in a middle-class Muslim family to receiving ceaseless support from mother to derisive relation with father until latter's death remains melodramatic. Perturbed connection with father and his struggles for a career in acting are all robust ideas.


Assessing personal life, formative years to Shah's disconcerted relationships are vivid in the book and he considered his father a primary hurdle in his aspiration to become an actor. Without reconciling his career ambitions, his father insisted on him to choose 'proper job' like other parents dreamt in post-independent India. His desire for acting was considered an absurd idea and he finally rebelled to fulfil that dream. He rebelled against his father, though he always provided him with financial support. It was while sitting beside father's grave that he found the first opportunity to speak to him uninterruptedly without being rebuked, Shah melancholy narrates with.


Discussing several known and unknown peoples in a hilarious narration, Shah turns this book into a mature storytelling chronicle. His contemptuousness against big budget filmmakers, who underestimate small budgeted moviemakers and do not to respect their commitments, brought him the recognition of a consummate actor.Only few celebrities dare to laugh at them in their memoirs to contemplate mystified aftereffects.
