“ Kya aap bhagwan ko mante ho? “
If this is the standard of crime-drama produced by Indian filmmakers. Hats off!
Starting from direction to cinematography, it will keep you glued to your seat. Great adaptation by the writers Varun Grover, Smita Singh and Vasant Nath. Vikramaditya Motwane and Anurag Kashyap did a fabulous job. The background score is so apt in every situation. Nawaz, Saif and Radhika did justice to their roles.
The situations presented starting from Babri Masjid, Bofors scam and Hindutva politics. The naming of each episode has some connection with that episode.
Sacred Games is India’s reply to Narcos.
If you have seen Shahrukh Khan’s Raees, you might be able to connect the roles of Nawaz and Shahrukh where they rise from nothing sheltered by the darkness of Indian filth. Nawaz as always has been doing justice to whichever role he has played in the past. His role as a serial killer in “Raman Raghav” hasn’t gained much prominence in the media and the general public but if you watch the movie, you will understand what this person is capable of delivering!
Saif on the other hand has been great playing the role of a police officer who is eager to change the system and ensure that his people and country does not fall prey into the hands of a corrupt system protected by the so called white faces of our society. It took quite a while for him to come back on the stage with a bang.
Sacred Games is one of those things India can be proud of on the world stage.
This series reveals the true potential of Indian cinema without the interference of censor board so say the least.
Radhika Apte has been on a spree with her latest releases featuring in another beautiful Indian Netflix original “Lust Stories”. Her stellar performance throughout the series might make you hate her at one point where she plays the role of a bold heartless RAW agent. I won’t give you the spoiler as to what happens to her in the end. Maybe you should see it for yourself!
Makers of Sacred Games. Take a bow!
