Especially the role of Sharad Pawar.

Secondly, though it was also tainted with bias and sensationalism, Mr. If he was not killed in an encounter he may have very well been a serious challenger to Dawood in Mumbai and in Asia. Lists with This Book. This book is truly an unputdownable book. Return to Book Page. It’s a first hand experience and the one which cannot be ignored. It is astonishing and completely unacceptable that a goon and a low life like Gawli could form a party and dream of becoming a politician after all his crimes.

Dons are very complicated to understand. It is quite interesting to know how all three dons started their career and become dons. Add to that the sensational way of writing that only a seasoned journalist could have and you hope to get a treat of a read. There were a lot of pages which read more like fiction that reality, this could have been avoided. I finished it within 8 hrs flat.

Written nicely this book may not apppeal to those who like their stories to be woven aroung a central character. Jul 13, Amit Goda rated it it was amazing. Feb 28, Athul rated it did not like it. Chota Rajan, the self-proclaimed patriotic don and a friend turned foe to Dawood is also the prime character of the book, who first got noticed by bashing a policeman openly in public. The vivid description to the last detail adds to the horrific encounters and brutal killings and the fight to power and rule Mumbai.


Critics argued that the prequel to the book, Dongri to Dubaiwas better in terms of story. After the huge success of Dongri to Dubai, here comes its much awaited sequel, Byculla to Bangkok.

Bads about this I read this book because I had to.

But the smooth linking between the chapters seemed missing in BTB. If you are interested in reading about crimethe mafia, their origin stories then this is a must read for you, along with the other two by Mr.

Last but not the least, however cool they sound in the movies or look awesome. The Book traces the evolution of Maharashtarians into underworld, and how so of them have started their own political parties now. The bias in this book as well his earlier one towards Dawood is visible in a very subtle manner. Writing style of mr. Chota Rajan, Arun Gawli and Ashwin Naik are among those whose lives Hussain Zaidi recounts with his characteristic flair for narrativizing the Mumbai underworld.

The art of investigative journalism and then transformed into a superb page turner, trust Hussain Zaidi on that. Major characters in this book include are Arun Gawli, wheelchair-bound Ashwin Naik who was also a civil engineer of the city and an accomplished gangster, and Chhota Rajan. Zaidi’s interview with Arun Gavali in Harsool jail is quite interesting to read.

If police would have acted in some cases and not acted in others, many people wouldn’t have ended up where they were. All in all, Byculla to Bangkok is a scary account of revenge, broad daylight killings and merciless encounters which lack the intensity of Dongri to Dubai, but is definitely a one time read.


Mar 24, Kanishka Sirdesai rated it liked it. Sometime you feel like you are watching a movie rather than reading a book. Many committed suicide, some just melted into the background, some retreated to their native villages — while others ended up hawking vegetables beneath the very structures that gave them their bread and butter.

Byculla to Bangkok is largely a bycjlla about Mumbai’s Hindu gangsters. This book tells us stories of 3 major dons. Views Read Edit View history.

If you have read Dongri to Dubai then what are you doing here just grab your copy and enjoy reading it.

May 23, Prity Malhotra rated it did not like it. It seems the author just printed few of the pictures for the sake of it. Primarily because his first one D2D kind of stole the show.
