At Kobo, we try to ensure that published reviews do not contain rude or profane language, spoilers, or any of our reviewer’s personal information. Zaidi makes sures of it through some really interesting story telling and plots. Hussain Zaidi is a master storyteller. Zaidi is trying to convey that “Muslim” Mafia is far better organized, eqipped and efficient than the Hindu Mafia.

Dawood was just a thug till his early thirties who got big by all the activities mentioned above.
