If something fulfills the true definition of a drama enveloping a fast-paced action thriller with mind-boggling twists it surely is the Amazon Prime series Mirzapur.
Mirzapur Season 1
Pankaj Tripathi never ceases to amaze with his stellar performances and this fact is brought home with this role of Akhandanand Tripathi aka Kaleen bhaiya. He plays the role of a mafia boss cum carpet merchant of Mirzapur who has made a fortune dealing in the arms trade as well as opium smuggling while using his carpet business as a cover.
The role of his son Munna has been played by Divyenndu who has come far from his once comical role in Luv Ranjan’s trendsetter Pyar ka Punchnama. Divyenndu showcases his talents in a phenomenal yet foolhardy way leaving the audiences both worried and spellbound.
Despite great performances by these actors the one actor that really pushed the envelope really far and outdid himself is Ali Fazal.
He brings the character of Guddu to life in such a way that one is bound to forget his rather somber and chocolaty roles in earlier movies.
Rajesh Tailang being the veteran he is has brought a sort of stiff intensity to the role of an upright lawyer rivaling in stature Kaleen Bhaiya if not in means. It wouldn’t be justice to Rasika Duggal’s quirky coquettish yet marvelous performance if it isn’t placed on par with that of Pankaj Tripathi.
All the actors have done a fantastic job of keeping the audiences at the edge of their seats, although with the rise of OTT platforms the expression should be twisting and turning on the couch instead of the edge of the seat!
Mirzapur Season 2 Release Date
The next season is to be released on the 23rd of October and we can only imagine and hope even better entertainment!
