Bollywood Babes Reviews

    Similar to the first book in the series except the girls' attitudes are more tolerable and the Bollywood star Molly is an interesting character.

    I had high hopes for this book because I'm fascinated by Bollywood and it sounded like a really fun premise. Unfortunately, the characters didn't seem very real, not much depth to anyone, and there wasn't anything much at stake. They skipped through time so quickly and I didn't get a sense of anything "big" on the line. I was kind of disappointed there wasn't more to the story. I'm left puzzled by the change in "Dad," I still am not sure if the three main characters are actually sisters (since it never said so), and it kept referring to some previous major life events like they'd been in a previous book together, but I don't know which book, if so. If they WERE in a previous book, I think it should have listed it on the inside cover. I thought this was a stand-alone novel but it didn't act like one.One of the most annoying things about this book, which kept pulling me out of the story, was all the words used for dialogue tags..."snorted," "blustered," "moaned," "asked assertively," "said lyrically," "smirked," "croaked," "groaned" name just a few.

    Bollywood Babes by Narinder Dhami is the second in a trilogy that I'm reading backwards. It didn't mean to do it that way but that's how it worked out. I still need to read the first of the series, Bindi Babes.In this middle volume, the three sisters have been roped into helping plan a fundraiser for their school by their well meaning but sometimes smothering Auntie. A chance meeting with former Bollywood starlet Molly Mahal gives them the inspiration they need; they'll make her the star attraction.Molly was the character that really sold the story for me. She's like so many former stars who have fallen on hard times. Growing up in California, I can remember similar stories of one time screen idols living in flop houses and struggling to pay bills.But being a comedy, the sisters' offer of help is taken to the extreme and they begin to doubt their decision. It's familiar story especially in comedies. It's fun to see how the sisters cope with their demanding guest and how they try to stay focused on the fundraising at the same time.

    Narrated by Nina Wadia. Amber Dhillon and her sisters track down former Bollywood star Molly Mahal, hoping she will accept their invitation to appear at their school's Bollywood themed fundraiser party. They discover her in a less than superstar condition, living in a dingy flat and about to be evicted. Amber decides they should take Molly home with them until she gets back on her feet. Soon the community hears about Molly and everyone beats a path to the Dhillon home. Worse, Molly proves to be a bit of a diva, monopolizing the bathroom and Auntie's wardrobe, and flirting with the starstruck men in the community. Amber still hasn't proposed the party idea to Molly and Auntie wants to know when Molly will get back on her feet again. Molly surprises everyone by donating a lot of money for the surgery of a sick child and blowing off the school party to start her first movie job in years. Light fiction.

    I reread the first book yesterday, discovered there were sequels, and finished this one today. My review from the previous entry stands; there's nothing groundbreaking here, but it's a light, enjoyable read. Auntie is even sassier, and she's no longer presented as a villain, which is nice. The three sisters remain somewhat boring (and really unintelligent). Hopefully this changes in the next entry, because I definitely intend to read it! Overall, this book is neither better, nor worse than the first.

    I didn't really like this book because even though it takes place in a character's life, it would never happen in real life to anyone. The 3 sisters Amber, Geena, and Jazz didn't want their annoying aunt in their lives in the 1st book and now she is helping out a fund raiser at their school. They get excited to be able to have a bollywood actress to help (at a school fun raising party). But this actress ends up being broke and wants to be treated as a star when she stays with the sisters, which means being her slave. Good read for when you are bored

    The Dhillon sisters are back, with another situation they have to take care of somehow - sister Amber has invited a down-and-out former Bollywood movie star to live with them in hopes that she will be the guest of honor at her school's fundraising party, & she's turned into one unpleasant houseguest. A fun read about three Anglo-Indian girls & their tightly knit community that any girl can relate to & enjoy.

    This book continues the story of Geena, Amber, and Jazz. This time, Amber has the brilliant idea to invite a former Bollywood star who happens to live near them to come to their school's Bollywood fundraiser party, but end up taking (the rather annoying) Molly Mahal into their home. The plot is a bit unrealistic, but it was still a pretty cute book.Technical notes: I am reading the epub version, and there are some strange paragraph breaks in the middle of sentences.

    Geena, Jazz, and Amber are just getting used to living with their nosy Auntie. When Auntie plans to throw an all out Bollywood party for the school fundraiser, Amber once again comes up with a crazy plan which involves a retired Bollywood star who embodies the very meaning of the word "diva."

    Good continuation of the series, very entertaining, my only complaint would be that the story perhaps could have been more original. Main characters trying to get rid of an annoying woman staying with them? Soooort of similar to the last book. Still a great series though, and a really fun re-read.

    This was okay - a story of 3 teenage Indian (as in, from India) sisters who end up with a somewhat washed up Bollywood film star living in their home. Many mix-ups ensue. It moves fairly fast, but wasn't amazing. For grades 5-7 probably.

    READ IN DUTCHThis is the sequel to the first story in Tina Topper 66. I always liked to collect them, even though the stories weren't always that good.They are still a quick and nice read for children around age 10-12.

    Very cute story! It's great to see sisters sticking together, even if it is for selfish reasons. Would recommend it to YA girls on the younger side to read.

    Excellent follow up to Bindi Babes. A series middle and high school students will love!

    This was ok, not really fantastic. I thought the author's first book featuring these characters was much stronger.

    I found this one more readable than the first book in the series. The plot was ten times more far-fetched, but somehow the maturation of the main characters helped a lot.
