Sacred Games: Netflix’s first Indian original series has been received very well in the first season. The eight-part season 1 is an impressive crime thriller based on Mumbai’s notorious underworld while taking us through the city’s organized crime, corruption, and more.
For long, people were waiting for season 2 to learn more about the crime story and its two prominent characters: a cop named Sartaj Singh (Saif Ali Khan), and crime boss Ganesh Gaitonde (Nawazuddin Siddiqui).
Sartaj Singh, a good cop, who embarks on a journey of self-discovery, struggles to solve the mystery of Gaitonde’s third father, and attempts to salvage his failed marriage, all while trying to save Mumbai from a massacre. In turn, Ganesh Gaitonde, the crime boss, in his quest to re-establish his power and position as the king, sets up a new cartel far away from his land.
We will also see two new characters Batya Abelman (Kalki Koechlin), and Shahid Khan (Ranvir Shorey) and as Netflix writes in a press release, the story will surprise us with numerous twists to the tale, while the self-proclaimed renaissance man Guruji (Pankaj Tripathi) plays a larger role and might become as big as Gaitonde.
Vikramaditya Motwane, who turns showrunner with the second season, shares:
“We’re extremely excited to finally be able to share with the fans of Sacred Games what they’ve all been waiting for with bated breath – the date of its release on Netflix! This season is bigger, more compelling, and totally unexpected. Be prepared to discover a different side to each character as we take the audience on a tremendous journey, and address questions left unanswered last season.”
While season 1 was directed by Anurag Kashyap and Vikramaditya Motwane, for season 2 – Motwane has been replaced by Neeraj Ghaywan. The story is adapted from Vikram Chandra’s 2006 novel of the same name and is written by Varun Grover, Smita Singh, and Vasant Nath.
