Murder Mubarak

In our review of Anuja Chauhan’s 2021 novel Club You To Death, we had said that its protagonist, ACP Bhavani Singh, “is a neatly written antithesis of the machismo-driven Bollywood franchise cop”. Just three years later, a Bollywood adaptation is here is the form of a Netflix murder mystery. After a gym trainer is found murdered at a posh Delhi club, an inspector investigates a series of wealthy suspects with secrets to conceal.
