‘Cinematic and poetic. A multilayered and taut thriller which is also full of humour. A definite page-turner!’ - Vishal Bhardwaj
A building collapses in Mumbai. In the debris is a man who is mumbling something in delirium. It appears that he is passing on the real-time movements of a young Muslim couple. Elsewhere, a young intelligence agent is assigned to shadow two terror suspects, one of whom is a teenager and the sweetheart of her street, Laila.
Taking up a slice of recent history, Miss Laila, Armed and Dangerous glares at the entire system – not just politicians, the bureaucracy, the police and lackeys, but also the good folks. Pervasive in its satire, wicked in its humour and broad-based in its canvas, this is one of the most stylish and honest works of fiction about India ever written.
