Kamini - such a strong character. A woman who started her life like you and me - till she did not fall in love with Harsh, A Don’s son. But love as they say is blind and much against the wishes of her parents she marries Harsh. What should have ended as a fairytale romance takes a sinister turn when Harsh’s Dad is killed and he is forced to take up the reigns of the family.

Forced? Well, yes. By Kamini, none other. Her love for her father-in-law makes her, force her husband to pick up the gun. Ha

When I was offered to read and review Don’s Wife, I was pretty excited. A thriller, centred on the murder of the Wife of a Notorious Don, Kamini at the front door of her own house, the book starts off on a relatively promising note. With the murder and the frenzy that it causes, the author makes you want to read further in the book.

After the Murder the book goes into a flash back, which deals with the rise of Kamini from a simple girl to being the Don’s Wife and politician. Her personal journey

n’s Wife is the debut novel of Director-turned-Author Vinod Pande of Ek Baar Phir, Yeh Nazdeekiyan and Sins fame. The movies were far ahead of their time and stirred up many Hornets’ nests so I was expecting nothing less from the book. I wasn’t disappointed. This is a story of love as well as crime, revenge as well as retribution, a tale of hope and honor and tragedies.

Kamini belongs to a middle class family but falls in love with Harsh who is the son of a much feared and respected underworld do

To be frank, I am just giving my opinion rather than reviewing Don's Wife. The title was pretty catchy for me when I first read about the book but I was pretty apprehensive about this being the author's first novel. Hence I ended up researching the book on the internet and more so, the author. Mr. Vinod Pande is an Indian Filmmaker. Found out about his films and realised that most of his films were women centric. Trusted him to do justice to Kamini. Scanned through the first few pages and decide ...more

Read Full Review :

The beginning of the story is intriguing and readers will surely found themselves latch to the book very soon. But the thick book of 500 pages cannot be completed forthwith and thus readers need to give some time to discover the various peaks and valleys submerged in the book. The title of the book very finely suggests that the story is centered on Don’s wife. The cover of the book shows the wretchedness of a woman and the woman is defin

Vinod Pande in his debut novel explores the life of Kamini, a character who finds herself in between the mob family initially led by RD and then by her husband Harsh. It traces around her affair with a bodyguard and the political life that she leads. Categorically though, the genre is given as a thriller, it reads more like something in the General fiction category with Thriller elements.

“Façade. One, simple word. But, very complex portents. It’s like living a life of half-dead. You are neither fully inside a grave, nor completely out of it, beyond the oppressive calmness of the slabs, tombstones and plaques. There is one solace though, you soon discover that you are not alone in the vast graveyard of the half-dead. This is what Kamini soon realized when she plunged herself back into the world that the destiny had conspired her to inherit.” 3 likes
