So, what exactly happened to Guruji? This could have been whittled down about 500 pages and moved a lot more smoothly, yet the characters are still interesting in their own flawed and miserable ways. Sacred Games could have been brief, maybe that's why they made it into a Netflix series. I like to relish a good book, admire a nice turn of phrase - and this book was full of those - but there were parts where I was just skimming.
So why am I so mingy in giving this book a mere 3. But, if you go for its intended use and read it instead, chances are that you could find a brilliant nail-biting, heart-pounding, edge-of-the-seat, bollywood blockbuster. Of course we know the good will win but the question the story leaves us with is — at what cost was the victory arrived at? The series was produced in partnership with Phantom Films.

I really, strongly advise you to start acclimatizing yourselves to this new reality by picking up works by talented storytellers like Vikram Chandra.

I was surprised by the way I myself was in love with Ganesh Gaitonde and the way he handles his friend a female , keeps up with her for decades and almost never comes face to face with her but I expected a heart-break in the end and you really need to read the book to know how it all ends. Hope they do a good job. Sartaj deve arrivare a Gaitonde, e l'ha quasi toccato quando Gaitonde inizia a raccontargli, attraverso il citofono del bunker dov'è asserragliato, della sua incredibile ascesa; fino al momento in cui, all'improvviso… In mezzo, tra Gaitonde e Sartaj, ci sono i vicoli puzzolenti ed i colori sgargianti di una città crocevia di tutti gli umani vizi e debolezze, antiche usanze e riti di cui si perde l'origine avvinghiati e infettati a tecnologia e modernità, la lingua indiana condita da parole inglese indi e marathi, musulmani che fronteggiano cristiani, pakistani e indiani che si studiano dalle montagne lungo un confine apparentemente deserto, servizi segreti guidati da una donna di poche parole, giovani vergini che ruotano misteriosamente intorno a Jojo, una bellissima donna dalla pelle ambrata e determinata come una pantera pronta a balzare sulla preda, un guru inafferrabile e infido che sembra essere il manovratore di tutto e di tutti, ashram in cui tutto sembra immobile, un'altra giovane donna, sorella della prima, che sembra ormai non chiedere più niente alla vita.
