The release was out on 15th of August and since then the patrons of the series haven’t stop gushing about the marvel Netflix has served for its audiences.
Series’s second season was released on midnight and the viewers were hooked to their seat with this crime thriller that was starring Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Saif Ali Khan and Pankaj Tripathi in the lead roles.
The series directed by Anurag Kashyap and Neeraj Ghaywan is gripping like the first season, answering the queries and the mysteries left unanswered in the season 1. It is based on Vikram Chandra’s novel which also bears the same title. It deals with the story of friendship and betrayal.
Saif Ali Khan and Nawazuddin Siddiqui are repeating their roles as Sartaj Singh and Ganesh Gaitonde whereas the new additional characters in the story are played by Ranveer Shourie who played Shahid Khan, Amruta Subhash playing Kusum Devi Yadav and Kalki Koechlin playing Batya Ableman.
Gaitonde who was considered to be the main culprit was later revealed as only a puppet who was being made to dance by someone else. The second season begins from the narrative of where the season 1 ended.
In this season 2 beginning, Sartaj and his team of cops are trying to save Mumbai from a nuclear attack which would be devastating Mumbai after 2 weeks. Sartaj has various personal issues that have to be resolved besides saving the city and the two timelines run parallel to each other. Sartaj is trying to solve the puzzles to save the city.
Although the story is quite slow at the beginning until the third episode, it picks up pace in later episodes. But it will keep you on edges of your seats truly engaged in the storyline and narrations.
The series tries to bring out similarities between the characters of Sartaj and Gaitonde as they both are dealing with their past and were betrayed in love.
Those who have not yet seen the season 2 can watch the series for a visual treat it makes via very strong star cast. Nawazuddin is a brilliant actor and Sameer Kochhar is again a new entry. In this season, Sartaj has been able to solve many mysteries which were left unsolved by Gaitonde in the first season. So, it is truly the successor of season 1 which would delight the viewers by its strong storyline, amazing beginning, character conflicts, and a well-structured finale.
It is a Binge-worthy series because not only the star performers are brilliant but also the direction and the scripts are equally immersive. The build-up that was given in season 1 has been well executed in this season 2.
