All those who didn’t like the ending of the show, can watch it again to understand why this was ideal and the ending bid adieu to the insanity.

Sacred Games 2 Review: In season 1, Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s Ganesh Gaitonde considered himself as ‘sarv shaktishaali eklauta bhagwan’, but we see a mellowed down version of him. The season 1 was all about his machoism and personality of Gaitonde. Saif Ali Khan’s Sartaj Singh is worrying and in turmoil about where he has to move next. Just as the headline suggests, the season is full of excitement and enjoyable to watch. The main debate is about the traumatizing ending. Makers have puzzled the audience and led all to the ambiguous zone. What began in season 1, those 25 days, finally ends with the climax. We see Shahid Khan (Ranvir Shorey) working towards blasting a nuclear bomb in Mumbai, which apparently is 6 times larger than the one of Hiroshima-Nagasaki. It all finishes, in Utopia manner, finding a pattern from a book called ‘Kaal Granth’.

The show begins with a different line of happenings instead from where it ended. With a huge masterstroke and non-linear story, we get to see, in a flashback sequence, Ganesh is being transferred to Mombasa, Kenya by Kusum Devi Yadav aka Yadav Sahab (Amruta Subhash). She had planned for Ganesh and uses him to do well for the nation. But Gaitonde manages to mess with everything and leave the country.

These links add up and connect with Guruji (Pankaj Tripathi), who’s the reason for all of this mess. This season is excellent and the technicalities are high on everything. Right from the austere appearance of production sets in the 90s to just a glimpse of the city post-Nuclear holocaust, the screenplay is extraordinary.

This season makes choices and gambles with its lead character Gaitonde by presenting him by surprizing everyone. The season is also turns prequel, and showcases the rise and fall of Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s character. The Mombasa spin-off gifts a very interesting angle to the story. With all this is just the start. The show is dark, gets engrossing towards the end.

“Do you have a single reason to save this world?” asks Batya Ableman (Kalki Koechlin) from Sartaj. The latter half of the season revolves around this line. The show also gets the audience to think, whether we have any single reason to save this world. Mob lynching, a very strong and controversial commentary on the religion, backing up facts with the mythological references, there is a lot more in the season.

The actors give their very best in the season, their characters achieve a certain level of madness. Towards the end, the confrontation scene between Ranvir Shorey and Saif Ali Khan had every chance of pulling off a Joker-Batman conversation, but it’s okay. This happens when a show is so good, you start to expect crazy things from it. Special mention for Nakash Aziz’s ‘Tune Jo Toda Hai’, gives a nostalgic feel, Varun Grover’s lyrics make this a memorable track.

Screenplay is brilliant as it joins the makers are giving hints of since season 1. It is solving itself and in several scenes, we get to see certain characters going through hallucinations and that’s where the insane screenplay comes to the play. There’s a feel of ‘Vikram & Betaal’ in a scene and in its next scene, we see Ganesh & Guruji take place as those mythological characters. That presents how the show evolves and comes to the technicalities of film-making.

The makers are not planning any upcoming season and those who didn’t like the ending of the show can watch it again. This will be a heartbreaking farewell to the excellent show presented in India’s digital space.
