Written in the s, the hero is Ali Imran who plays the fool but is intelligent and part of khufnak intelligence service. His whimsical utterances are slap stick and corny but as he is such a fun character these become the highlight of the stories.
The stories are fairly simple but they have not aged.
It was interesting to read Agatha Christie’s blurb quote on book cover – I don’t know Urdu but have knowledge of detective novela in the subcontinent. There is khakfnak one original writer – Ibn-e-Safi.
Lead character Imran is shrewd, intelligent man. One who spews Urdu couplets at drop of hat. Khuafnak, he always projects himself as an bumbling idiot. I thought this khaufjak bit too overdone. But, then that khafnak the character U It was interesting to read Agatha Christie’s blurb quote on book cover – I don’t know Urdu but have knowledge of detective novela in the subcontinent.
This book has two stories – House of Fear and Shootout at Rocks. First one involves traditional secret agents, traitors and imposters. The second one predictably is related to mythical, dynastic drug mafia lord. One big plus the that it is flowing and it is fast-paced. One minor whine – I missed reading Urdu couplets in original, English translation is never the same. It is interesting to read the reviews of the first book of Ibne Safi’s Imran Series,something that became a cultural phenomenon in Pakistan for decades.
Some love it,some hate it. I imarzt it in my teens and enjoyed it. Ali Imran,the character which spawned innumerable imitators doesn’t appeal to me now but the nostalgia still remains.

I have become more critical of Ibn e Safi,so much so, that all those books I once collected so painstakingly are no longer in my personal library. View all 5 comments. Brilliant detective storytelling ihaufnak one of the masters of subcontinent.
And Imran as a character is so 3 dimensional, one starts rooting for him from page 1! Must read for everyone. Be shocked, be amusedbe outrageously stupid. But be not bored. Coz here is Ali Imran. There are two stories in the book: The story–and the setting–is a refreshing change from so many mysteries; I looked forward to reading the book for that reason, though it made me realize how ignorant I am of India and imart culture.
I like the hero, Imran bhai, who plays the buffoon so no one takes him seriously, reminding me of Zorro and the Scarlet Pimpernel. No one would sus There are two stories in the book: No one would suspect him of being alert and intelligent; he fights well also. The back cover blurb says that he is the head of the secret service, chief X2, but I saw no mention of that in the stories; it i,arat mentioned in the introduction.
Possibly it’s brought out in other books in the series, which Imarst would also enjoy reading. The introduction, written by his son, gives the background of Ibn-e-Safi khauffnak psuedonymwho was a prolific writer, and I learned a little bit about the literary scene in India. I confess that I didn’t know there was one!
I learned a lot from this fun read. I quite liked Ibn-E-Safi. His stories are the kind that should be made into movies. His protagonist Imran is portrayed as a strange funny man, foolish mostly but someone who is highly sought after by imadat who know him to help them solve mysteries. He is a member of the Intelligence division.
Hard to believe khsufnak the initial characterisation. I love the set-up, the characterisation though I’d like more explanation and the language.
His foolishness borders on being extreme. Just a simple reason why he does this apart from, to fool his opponents who are rather foolish to fall into this trap would be great. Again, his parents’ intolerance of this foolishness is rather confusing. But then, that is what make these mysteries so simple and easy to read khafunak accessible to all.
I’d recommend it for light reading and I do think he’d qualify as a good pulp fiction author. Jul 12, Rija rated it it was amazing. A story that started imaat entire genre!
This book marks the beginning of Ibne- Safi’s brilliance as the most well-known Suspense writer of Pakistan.
Imran Series gives you everything. Thrill, Romance, Comedy and definitely some extra-ordinary not run-of-the-mill in any way Action. I have spent countless nights reading the different books of the series and I am not even exaggerating.
Absolutely love these books. And I recommend them to anyone who enjoys unexceptional writing. This was my first experience of reading Ibn Safi. The blurb on the front cover stated a quote of Agatha Christie which read, ” I don’t know Urdu but have knowledge of detective novels in the subcontinent.

There is only one original writer – Ibn E Safi. The stories are pacy but the ending of both the stories failed to awe me.
I felt that at the wee end Imran could’ve offered better explanations for the events that eventually he This was my first experience of reading Ibn Safi. I felt that at imarag wee end Imran could’ve offered better explanations for the events that eventually helped him nab the culprit. And a genius who holds the story together. Imran bears more resemblance to Holmes rather than Poirot.
Was a decent read. Having said that, I found the book to be a decent read. Nothing magnificent, but good potboiler entertainment.
May 13, Saif Khan rated it it was amazing. Where it all began This series is the reason I started reading books in the first place. For me it will always be no. May 02, Rural Soul rated it did not like it Shelves: Imaat was expecting something high as I had read only novel of Imran series by Mazhar Kaleem in my entire life and that was end of it. Many of my pals consider it pride as comparing your taste to others but this is how may be I was.
Still being a teenager I had hated his book. May be it wasn’t good as it’s hoped. This goes to Ishtiaq Ahmad as well. Didn’t like him as well.
Didn’t finish his any novel. I always had curiosity to read original Imran Series and when i did. It’s not pleasnat experience.
I am going to write honestly what I felt about it. I was expecting a pure piece of literature combined with a thrilling detective story as it was written in 50s. That was the era of perfection whether it’s prose or poetry.
