Digital original series have taken the world by storm. With over thousands of films, documentaries and series available on various platforms like Amazon Prime, Hotstar and Netflix, accessible all over the world, it has become a race to capture audience’s interests and make them sit, watch and even binge a full season. One of the newest is Mirzapur, which released this past Friday.
Ever since I saw the trailer of the Mirzapur, I was quite excited about it. The new web series promised to be gritty and gripping and the fact that, it featured some of the best actors of industry and was produced by Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani added to the excitement.
I have binge-watched the whole season and here are the five reasons why you should too. And oh, you can thank us later.
1. The stellar star cast
The show stars Pankaj Tripathi as the ‘King of Mirzapur’, a small town gangster (again) and that reason should be enough. If it isn’t, then he is supported by a prolific set of actors including Ali Fazal, Divyendu Sharma, Vikrant Massey, Rasika Dugal, and Shweta Tripathi.
2. The storyline
As you would expect, the storyline is intriguing and you find yourself hooked since the opening scene. The show is set in a small town where the mighty and powerful are suddenly threatened by two men – whose only motive is revenge. And as many crime dramas in the past have proved there is no emotion more powerful than revenge.
3. The dialogues
The dialogues are a riot and the use of expletives is quite funny at times. They will surely leave you cracking with laughter at one moment, and gasping in shock the another.
4. The violence
Mirzapur is a gorefest and is a treat for those who love action and thrills. They have left no stone unturned. After movies like Gangs of Wasseypur and series like Sacred Games, the Indian audience is no stranger to hardcore violence, but Mirzapur has raised the bar with this series.
5. The shock value
The major reason to binge-watch any series should be for its shock value and Mirzapur is no different. It keeps you on the edge from start to finish. At the same time, no character is as simple as they appear, or so the trailer would have us believe.
