All I have to say for this Book is - "Respect" for Mr. Zaidi,
He has provided a narration for almost all the Mafia Events for almost half a century.
The narration is so powerful you would be enchanted in the journey as well as would be able to fantasize the events in your own style, after all evry one is a hero in his own story.
It is a must read for every History fanatic as well as nation enthusiast.
I rate it a Perfect 5 ,it deserves it.
The author is surely a well known journalist and has done immense homework before penning down this book. It has extreme insights into the life and crime of Mumbai mafia from the advent of independence. At times the read becomes too hot to handle owing to a number of people introduced simultaneously and it becomes difficult to map who was in which gang at a particular point of time. Some excerpts are short and appear to be direct newspaper cutouts. Having said that a must read for Mumbaikars and anyone who is interested in the real things that happened in the underworld of yesteryear. More exciting than the movies, I tell you.
Good book who is interested to know how the mafia culture is first originate from Mumbai, and who is behind to daood who become Indian's most wanted criminal. And how tactically he is the king of don's.
If you get thrilled from Gangster stories and rags to riches articles its a good one. Loved this book nothing exceptional, its more like newspaper article. Definitely worth the money and a good purchase. Go for it. Flipkart as usual good
Hussain Zaidi is a journalist and not an author, and this fact is apparent throughout the book. He is definitely not a story-teller as well, which is a pity. The book is full of countless small stories that make up part of the different dons' lives. A lot of these stories would also differ from what people would have read or heard about. And in my opinion, since a lot of these stories are second-hand, one could probably think and doubt some of the incidents' exact verity?
One would think that the entire book is about Dawood. However it isn't. There are loads of details about the other characters who are also related to people around Dawood. Some times these small stories distract oneself from the main story. Unfortunately there is not a lot of material for the main story. This is why you have detailed stories of Sabir, Samad Khan, Baashu dada and more. However when you come to the big D, the details are pretty less.
Why? Was Zaidi scared to offend the don? Or was he too impressed by the don's demeanour during his past encounter(s). Zaidi frequently talks about Dawood's love for riches and fast women. Other than the one story that every news rag has printed, there are no names about either the objects that the riches bought or the women for whom Dawood had a fancy for. While there are few subtle hints, there are no heavy details about the people in Bollywood who have been connected with the mafia.
This book gives an interesting and in detail of real story how dawood became the king of mumbai to king of the mafia world and how destroyed our country by shaking hands with the ISI,etc are explained by the author in this book
