After enjoying season 1 of the most popular web series Amazon Prime video’s original Mirzapur, The much-awaited Season 2 of Mirzapur has finally returned. Mirzapur Season 2 is premiered on Amazon Prime. A huge audience and fans were eagerly waiting for this day to come. The series was earlier scheduled on 23 October 2020, but as a surprise to the audience, it got released a day before.
Here’s a brief review of the Mirzapur Season 2:
Kaleen Bhaiyya (Pankaj Tripathi) was one of the best thing about the first season of Mirzapur and in the new season, this fact doesn’t change. In fact, he gets inexplicably better in a way only Pankaj Tripathi can – effortless building on his menacing air and the wry sense of humor. We see enough of him in the first 2 episodes to want to watch the rest of the series just to admire his inimitable style.
After an elaborate recap reminding us of the fate of many felled characters and the spilled blood, we enter a world that evokes an all-pervasive atmosphere of revenge and violence. Guddu (Ali Fazal) , Golu (Shweta Tripathi ), and Dimpy (Harshita Gaur) are on the run. Bruised, broken but seething with rage as they try and consolidate help to avenge the deaths of Babloo (Vikrant Massey) and Sweety (Shriya Pilgaonkar).
Munna Bhaiyaa (Divyendu) is still trying to impress his father and show him he is a worthy contender to take over Mirzapur. He seems to have evolved as a person and has far more layers to his character, but every time he is on-screen we can’t help but wonder if he will trip on his smug belief of being invincible and have an inglorious fall. The precariously balanced world after the death of Ratikant Mishra in the previous season now foregrounds his son Sharad played by an impeccably restrained Anjum Sharma.
But the ones who seem to hold the most promise are the women characters. Shweta Tripathi and Rasika Duggal, both supremely talented, get a chance to dig their teeth into solid meaty roles. Much of the power that their characters hold is not explicitly spelt out but thanks to some brilliant subtle writing and their faultless performance draws us in completely. A familiarity to the narrative notwithstanding, we can’t wait to find out how Beena and Golu circumvent the testosterone fuelled world and make a bewitching rulebook of their own.
Let’s see what fate holds for Kaleena Bhaiya, Gudd Pandit and Munna Bhaiya this season. To know more you must go and watch the full web series available exclusively on Amazon Prime Video Its definitely a binge-worthy show.
