Mirzapur Season 1 has undoubtedly been one of the biggest hits for Amazon Prime Video. It took all its viewers through a roller coaster ride of emotions varying from joy to melancholy and from amusement to exasperation within a span of 405 minutes in the 9 episodes.
And finally, after 2 years of indomitable questions about the release of season 2 from eager fans, Mirzapur season 2 has finally been released on Amazon Prime Video on 23rd October 2020.
But one thing that you have our word on is that all the wait for season 2 was worthwhile.
We already saw the breathtaking performances by all the marvelous gems who are a part of the series including Pankaj Tripathi, Ali Fazal, Shweta Tripathi, Divyendu Sharma, and many more and they continue to astonish us with their remarkable performance in season 2.
Not just this, many actors whom we did not see much or at all in last seasons, like Amit Sial, Anjum Sharma, Vijay Varma, and a few more have entered the game and gained the limelight with their exceptional performances in Season 2.
In season 2 it’s all about survival and revenge. It witnesses how the ending of season one, which led to the killing of many important characters like Bablu, Sweety, and Rati Shankar Shukla has given rise to such a situation that somehow everyone got pulled in the battle of getting seated on the Throne of Mirzapur because of these two motives.
In season 1 we saw how anyone who tried to get in the way of Kaleen Bhaiya (Pankaj Tripathi) was removed very conveniently by him and now his main objective is to prepare his son Munna (Divyenndu Sharma) to become the new “King of Mirzapur”.
On the other hand, Guddu Pandit(Ali Fazal) has come back to avenge the death of his brother Bablu Pandit (Vikrant Massey) and his wife Sweety (Shriya Pilgaonkar). On this journey, Golu (Shweta Tripathi) and Dimpy (Harshita Gaur) support him and help him heal his wounds and get prepared for the menacing battle.
Meanwhile, Rati Shankar Shukla’s son who initially didn’t even want to be a part of this world gets dragged inside as he wants to fulfill his father’s dream and conquer Mirzapur.
Also, Golu and Dimpy who used to be two chirpy college girls in the previous season are now two valiant women whose sole objective is to make the enemies pay for the lives of their loved ones. Furthermore, we see how all the women of Mirzapur have become bolder in the new season.
Basically, now it’s a do or die situation for everyone as they share common goals – to avenge the death of their loved ones and to rule Mirzapur.
A lot of other things might have changed but the rule of the game remains the same; you either shed someone else’s blood or you’re going to be the one losing your own. It’s interesting to see how some of our favorite characters suddenly turn into something we could have never imagined until now.
Just like season 1, it will make the viewers experience several emotions in each episode. The series has been written and directed fantastically by Karan Anshuman, Mihir Desai, Puneet Krishna, and Gurmmeet Singh. It’s surprising and quite impressive how all the actors have brought the characters to life in such a way that when you watch the show, you can actually feel all the emotions that they are feeling .
Mirzapur Season 2 is much more than just the violence that we all saw in the previous season. It now comprises various other aspects like politics, conspiracies, revenge, survival, and much more.
And even as the battle gets deadlier in Mirzapur, it guarantees more entertainment for the ones watching. Definitely, the kind of show that you start watching with the plan of just one episode at a time and end up binge-watching.
