Mayaram has a plan -- to rob a bank, where the minimum haul they can expect is a whopping fifty lakh one lakh is a hundred thousand, so fifty is five million -- a lot, even in rupees -- and he wants Vimal on his team. Reluctantly, Vimal joins the motley crew, which includes such characters as the hard-drinking Sardar Labh Singh, a.
Matar-Paneer because of his fondness for matar-paneer. The first half of The 65 Lakh Heist is a bank-heist story, from organizing the crew to getting the information necessary to pull off the job to putting the plan into action. And The 65 Lakh Heist becomes a cat-and-mouse game, as Vimal is both on the run and in a chase, wanting to make Mayaram pay and hand over the cash. Matters also get complicated -- and dangerous -- when the notorious dada, Harnam Singh Garewal, whom Mayaram has worked for, gets involved, as Vimal seeks him out to find Mayaram but Garewal decides he wants a piece of the action, too.
Vimal is quick on his feet, but still finds himself drawn into this ugly and violent business. The 65 Lakh Heist is uneven, tripping over itself a bit in the chase-half, after the more deliberate build-up to and around the heist itself. Overall this is a solid, fast-paced thriller that offers a few true thrills and is an enjoyable read.
