There is a good news for people who were smitten by the Netflix’s Crime drama, thriller Sacred Games, and waiting impatiently for second season of the show.
Media streaming platform Amazon Prime brings Mirzapur, directed by Karan Anshuman, and produced under the banner of Excel (Ritesh Sidhwani, Farhan Akhtar). Mirzapur brings back the raw desi flavor of abusive criminals after Gangs of Wasseypur , and has an ensemble cast of super talented artists like Pankaj Tripathi, Rasika Duggal, Divyendu Sharma, Ali Fazal, Vikrant Massey, Kulbhushan Kharbanda along many more.
The series follows story of Kaleen Bhaiya aka Akhanda Tripathi (Pankaj Tripathi), a Carpet trading entrepreneur who deals in hand-made illegal guns and drugs, and rules Mirzapur. His son Munna Tripathi (Divyendu Sharma) is a power hungry, backstabbing and college student union president. The wild card entries that create both an opportunity and challenge for Tripathi clan are Guddu Pandit (Ali Fazal) and Bablu Pandit (Vikrant Massey), sons of Advocate Ramakant Pandit.
Mirzapur will remind of you the Gangs of Wasseypur days, it is full of sexual innuendos (no graphic nudity although), violence and gore, blood spurting, flesh being torn and women moaning in sexual scenes. All the actors have done their best, Pankaj Tripathi gives another powerful performance as Akhanda Tripathi, but the show-stealers are Divyendu Sharma as Munna Tripathi and Ali Fazal and Vikrant Massey as Guddu & Bablu.
We would highly suggest you to binge watch Mirzapur, it once again proves the vast potential of Indian cinema and the artists.
