Graphic India just appointed a new writer to reboot The Sadhu series with this book. So, the story remaining same I will not go about that, but rather the comparison. If you have read the first original volume of the Sadhu then this will not come as anything new. Sure it tries to take care of the shortcomings of the original but in doing so has introduced some of it's own. Rather at times I found the original better narrated than that of this one. Though this one had a better pace, it did not have the grip. This one doesn't fully retell the original. So the original is more elaborated (which did not help with the pace much). The good things, it removes some cliche portions of the original, is tighter and quick. You can give it a miss if you read the original yet it is alright to read again if you want to let go of the money, though not mandatory.
