The Matka King
In a story that pits human nature against love and chance, a landscape of betrayal and redemption comes to life in the red-light district of Bombay, India. One very powerful eunuch, Top Rani, operates an illicit lottery through his brothel, and when a gambler who is deeply in debt makes an unexpected wager, the stakes become life and death. Can a fortune teller and a ten-year-old girl beat Top Rani at his own game?
Apsara, Bombay's most infamous dancer, lives with her iron-willed mother Padma in an apartment by the sea. Padma takes money from men so they watch her daughter perform a mesmerizing dace. Apsara's extraordinary beauty and erotically charged dancing cast a powerful spell over her wealthy and famous clientele. One day, a mysterious blind man named Kamal visits for a private dance. His secret link to their past threatens to change each of their lives forever. At turns lyrical and brutal, Bombay Black charts the seduction of Apsara by Kamal, and Padma's violent enmity towards the blind man and the secret he holds.
