Many families were devastated at the end of the story of the first season of Mirzapur, but one who is injured But blazing for revenge is Guddu Pandit (Ali Fazal). Munna Tripathi (Divyendu Sharma) killed Guddu’s wife, child, and brother. In the bloody shootout, only Guddu Pandit, his sister Dimpy, and Bablu’s girlfriend Golu were left.
After the first season was over, the audience was convinced that the second season would be the story of Guddu Pandit’s revenge. However, the big challenge for the makers was that they should be served something new apart from what the audience is already guessing.
Many say that the makers have managed to saturate the audience. So let’s know what things are better than ever in Mirzapur 2 from the story to the background music and from the acting to the direction and where this season is weak in delivering the best.
In the second season of Mirzapur, Guddu Pandit is like a wounded lion that is burning in the fire of revenge. Similarly, Golu also needs his revenge. However, the families of both have lost their own and now they want their children to return. Now Guddu Pandit needs both Badla and Mirzapur’s throne.
On the other hand, Munna Tripathi joins hand with Ratishankar Shukla’s son Sharad. Now Sharad needs his father’s revenge with Guddu, and Munna wants to complete his unfinished work. Meanwhile, to improve his business, Akhanda makes a knot with the UP CM and gets close to him on the pretext of giving him an electoral advantage. At rallies, Munna grows closer to CM’s daughter, taking advantage of this, Akhanda get Munna married to CM’s widow daughter, who later becomes CM herself.
Apart from Jaunpur and Mirzapur, this time also a gang from Bihar has been included in the story, which both Guddu and Akhanda want to help in their business. The double role of Vijay Sharma in the character of Lilliput Farooqui and his sons in the role of Dadda Tyagi brings a lot of exclusiveness to the story. However, an attempt has been made to run the story from a slightly different stream from the previous one.
Here Munna has become the husband of CM and on the other hand, Guddu starts a business of opium by joining hands with Lala. Now Munna, Sharad, and Guddu all want the throne of Mirzapur, but for this, they are waiting for the right opportunity. All three get this chance together, but how do they get this opportunity and who among them is able to cash in on this opportunity, this is the story of the series.
Comparing to the first season, you may feel that the climax of this season is a bit poor, but still the turn at which the story leaves you in this season makes you wait for the next season. The bloody fight sequence and the intervening jokes keep your entertained in the story, but we must say that this time the season is a bit longer than the previous one.
Direction and acting
Mirzapur-2 can be given full marks in terms of acting and direction. Ali Fazal is more powerful than before. Divyendu looks in his old baffling style. Pankaj Tripathi’s character involvement looks a little less this time than before, but new characters are seen to fill their gaps in the story. Background and theme music is as powerful as before.
What are the negative points?
In this season, each episode is about an hour and there are 10 episodes in total, so it is possible that some people may find it a bit longer. However, the story has been woven in such a way that your interest remains throughout the episodes. In the series, abuses, nudism, and violins have been kept higher than before. So if you do not like to see this kind of content, then you can avoid it.
