Saif Ali Khan and Nawazuddin Siddiqui starrer Sacred Games was released on Netflix last year. The suspense-thriller impressed one and all, and after one year now the makers have come up with season two. The season one had ended on a note that made everyone wait for the season two. But was the wait worth? Partly yes…
Sacred Games season two starts where the first season ended. Just like season one, we are shown two parallel stories of Ganesh Gaitonde (Nawaz) and Sartaj Singh (Saif). But there’s one connection between them. By the way, if you have not seen season one, you won’t understand what is happening in season two.
There are new characters added in season two and some of the characters who have just been mentioned in season one get a bigger scope in the second season. Sacred Games season two is a good watch. It is interesting and engaging in parts. But after a point, you start feeling that the makers are stretching it. Also, season two ends on a note that now we need to wait for season three or at least the finale episode of season two which might irritate a bit as you waited long and watched eight long episodes to know what exactly happens.
Saif Ali Khan is good as Sartaj Singh but his character doesn’t get many layers. On the other hand, the web series gives Nawazuddin Siddiqui ample scope to showcase his different sides. His character has layers and it’s not monotonous. Pankaj Tripathi is excellent as Guruji and Kalki Koechlin leaves a mark. Ranvir Shorey doesn’t have much to do and he is totally wasted. The supporting cast like Anupriya Goenka, Samir Kochhar, Neeraj Kabi, Surveen Chawla, and others are good in their respective roles.
On the whole, Sacred Games season two is as good as season one. It doesn’t take the web series a notch higher as we would expect from a season two.
