Tragedy strikes young Xavi’s family when his mother is abducted and killed. Following which, Xavi‘s father sends him off to a boarding school. Due to little contact with his father and being forced to stay away, he becomes resentful of his dad. After spending years away from home, when he finally returns, he finds things are far different from what he expected. His father is no longer the law-abiding citizen he once was. Even though their relationship is far from ideal, little does Xavi realize that his own motivations and outlook towards life are not too different from his father‘s. In this twisted world of power, will his struggles and choices against chaos help him see the light he desperately seeks… or will it only lead to more chaos? Witness the story of an ordinary boy forced into extraordinary circumstances- A boy who refuses to live a life dictated by others.

Review by Himanshu Khatri

ye story h xavi naam ke ladke ki jiski life ek aise event ne change kr di aaj uske pass apna kehno ko kuch nhi hai . jindagi ki struggle ne usse ekdum change kr diya h wo har bure event ke reaction dene ko tayar rehta hai par unproper training ki wajah se mat kha jata jiske liye wo khud ko tayar krne lagta. main iss issue me yahi par iske saath aise bahut event hote xavi ke saath jisse aap padh ke khud ko usse juda payengy. 

writer ne jiss khubi se har charcter ko bnaya hai aur unke beech ki bonding wo aapko real life me kahin na kahin dekhne ko mil jayegi. art and color iss comics ki jaan specialy action scene.....tadam ka art isse pasand aayega unke pichle work se aur naval ji ki coloring shandaar huyi hai. kulmila ke new grounded heroes type story ke liye iss cmx ko chance de sakte hai nirash bilkul nhi hongey...
