A wonderful journey into the Mafia world of Mumbai, introducing the Ladies who made it big in the men's world. The narrators did an amazing job of bringing the emotions behind the story and mesmerising from the beginning to the end. Kalki stands tall above all else !!

Such AMAZING stories of female mafia queens

They are big drug peddler / prostitution ring leaders, but these stories don't portray them as heroes. Instead, it provides their back stories and provides us with a human side to their otherwise notorious nature.
Kalki shines as a narrator with her smooth voice and Radhika shows us that her emotions are well portrayed through voice.
Well worth the time spent!

An intriguing account of Mumbai's Underworld

Listening about the lives of Mumbai's well known and other not so lady mafias was an intriguing journey. Through these true stories one covers a good part of one of the very important chapters of Mumbai's history. All the narrators have done a good job and more such endeavours should be undertaken. I hope we will soon have hindi and other language books as well.

Very well written and well narrated.

Some of the amazing stories of women of underwolrd in Mumbai in neutral light. The narration has been very well done by Radhika Aapte, Kalki Koelchin and Rajkumar Rao

Radhika is remarkable!!! Rest can be ignored.

The first part, story of Gangu bai is brilliant. What makes it ethereal is Radhika Apte's voice. She has this perfect voice for audio books and I am addicted to her. Rest of the book..I can't judge because I am leaving in the middle. I didn't like Kalki's voice at all. It is raspy and lacking the needed emotions. What is more babbling is Rajkumar's reading. I don't know what happened there? I have heard his narration before and he is remarkable. But not here.
Now bout the book, I couldn't exactly sympathize with any of the characters neither feel empowered. I have nothing to take from any of these except gangu bai. All these women have done irreparable damage to society. No doubt their rise to the power is spell binding. Yet, I would never side myself with any of the characters. My mind is too chastised for these. They did what they could have not done. All the lives lost due to drugs, arms, docait, terrorism - I see no reason read about them. Or even glorify them. Everyone comes to a point I their life where they have to make a choice. They lose someone they never thought they could live without. That never means they would launch themselves into a killing spree. Just because you don't have money at your house, doesn't mean you would start smuggling. Yes, the author is not directly sympathizing with these women, but writing a whole book about them...this itself is manifestation of his fascination towards them.

Go for the book if you want good Indian fiction and you don't think much about good vs bad all the time. Because it filled with nasty shit being on pedestal all the time.
