Bhendi Bazaar has a well thought story line, and mostly moves at an even pace, alternating between the past and the present. The plot is not too intricate, so if you expect a mentally taxing narrative, this isn't going to supply the same. The protagonist Rita Ferreira is a likeable character, but I felt at times that the Crime Branch officers haven't made obvious conclusions, and look blankly at Ferreira for making easy deductions, which doesn't seem right. Also, apart from Rita, Joshi and Jatin, most other officers don't make any sort of impact on the reader, so I think the character development could have been better.
On the other hand, two of the Russian girls and the offspring of Varinka have been portrayed in a heart-wrenching manner, and make immediate emotional appeal. The culprit was an easy guess, as the author has left an obvious hint midway through the story, but the story behind him (or her) is a suspense worth reading for. I picked this up to feel the Indian flavor, and I was a little disappointed, as the story mostly deals with Mumbai only in connection with the plot, and slight details, humble openings into the buzz of the city haven't been stirred much.
So, yes, the plot is nice. It connects to the reader beautifully and can trigger emotions. Overall, it was an enjoyable reading experience, and if you are looking for Indian crime fiction, you can give this one a try.
