Sacred Games 2 Review
The second season has actually doubled the level set by the first season.
In the first season, we were only told that Gaitonde and Saratj's lives are related to each other. But we still know nothing about the connection they had. this season tells about the link between their stories. The suspense and thrill element has indeed added on to the outstanding story.
The angle of religion is also there and its use is efficient in the show. The show gives a glimpse of the way politicians use religion to provoke people and use their own faith against themselves.
The old characters are in the same roles as the previous season. However, you will see some new characters in the new season. Especially Ranvir Shauri and Kalki Koechlin are the new faces that have important roles in the new season.
The show has given focus on Pankaj Tripathi and he has done his job really well. Pankaj Tripathi was less screen time in the previous season. But this time, he is going to play with your mind well.
Some famous characters of the first season like Suleman, Isa, Banti, and all have not been given much importance in the second season. So, the fans of these characters may get a bit of disappointment. But the new characters are good enough to attract your attention and interest. So, you may not miss the old characters a lot. Moreover, adding new characters in the new season has added freshness to the show.
Talking about the titles of the various episodes, the titles are really a bit weird and cannot be understood by everyone easily. However, in the second season, each title has been explained well in every episode. This again is a new practice in the second season which was not there in the previous one.
Some references for real-life characters are also there in the show. This new concept is really good to see. Though the writers have not used the original names of the characters, you can easily identify them by looking at their appearances.
The angle of the rift between India and Pakistan on grounds of terrorism has also been used well in the show.
The best part of the show is the storyline of the episodes. The story is indeed unpredictable and each episode has a new twist or suspense element that keeps you engrossed. The character of Guruji is a major element of suspense in the show and till the end.
The performance of the various actors was amazing in the first season as well and it has been in continuation this time also. Be is the effective dialogue delivery or the excellent acting by the various artists, everything is up to the expectations of the viewers.
Another thing contrary to the first season is the screen time given to Saif Ali Khan. In the first season he was the most important character but this time, he has very fewer scenes and dialogues.
Nawazuddin Siddiqui has again proved himself. He is undoubtedly one of the best actors in the Indian film industry and Sacred Games 2 has made this image even more strong.
Some of the episodes of the show seem to be slow and stretched. It appears that a lot of time is given to explain petty things. This shows the voids in the storyline.
Altogether, Sacred Games 2 is a treat for binge-watching. If you are someone who likes thrill and suspense, this is the exact thing for you.
If you haven't watched the first season of the show, you won't be able to understand the second season as well. So, watch the first season first. You won't regret the time given at all. Enjoy your weekend with binge-watching.
To complete the story that had started in Sacred Games 1 is back to be completed in its second season. The second season of the very famous series has been appreciated well by the critics and the viewers. Seems we have got a go0d thing for our weekend binge-watching.
