Many families were devastated at the end of the story of the first season of Mirzapur. But the most injured were Guddu Pandit (Ali Fazal). Munna Tripathi (Divyendu Sharma) killed Guddu’s wife, child, and brother. However, only Guddu Pandit, his sister Dimpy and Bablu’s girlfriend Golu were escaped from that shootout.
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.
Must say that the makers have managed to saturate the audience. So let’s know what things are better than ever in Mirzapur 2, from story to background music and from acting to the direction, and where this season is a little weak.
In the second season of Mirzapur, Guddu Pandit is like a wounded lion that is burning in the fire of revenge. Similarly, Golu too needs his revenge. However, the families of both have lost someone or other and now they want their children to return. But Guddu Pandit now needs both Badla and Mirzapur’s throne.
On the other hand, Munna Tripathi joins hands 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 closer 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 marries Munna 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 newness to the story. However, an attempt has been made to run them in a slightly different stream from the main story.
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.
Compare with First Season
Comparing to the first season, you may feel that the climax of this season is a bit light, but still the turn at which the story leaves you in this season makes you wait for the next story. The tremendous fight sequence and the intervening jokes keep your trend in the story, but must say that this time the season is a bit bigger than the previous.
Direction and acting
Mirzapur-2 can be given full marks in terms of acting and direction. Ali Fazal is more powerful than before. Divyendu is in his old baffling style. Pankaj Tripathi’s character will look 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.
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 tendency remains in it. In the series, abuses, nudis 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.
