From Gangs of Wasseypur (2012) to Mirzapur it has been a journey into ever intensifying violence accompanied by an ever-increasing frequency of abusive language. This is what the world seems to like about the ever-shifting Indian cinema that is paying attention to highly intensifying form of the butchery of the human skin.
The success of Gangs of Wasseypur I brought the Indian mafia back on stage and the Gangs of Wasseypur II brought to highlight the previously lesser-known actors including Nawazuddin Siddiqui. In addition, one particular name made his fortune by playing Sultan – Pankaj Tripathi. Mirzapur is a season comprising of 9 episode that contributed a lot to the popularity of Amazon Prime. Pankaj Tripathi’s exceptional talent keeps the drama alive and I’d say that it is his inspirational acting that pushes the flaws in the dark corners. The plot itself is weak in the sense that there seems no moral authority to balance against the evil world of Mirzapur.
Only one character, Ramakant Pandit, a lawyer decides to stay firm against the evil forces but he is side-lined after his sons accept the Mafia Don’s offer to join him.
Despite the fact that there is nothing inspiring in terms of morality and that the whole drama seems to highlight violence, vulgarity, and public abuse, viewers are eagerly waiting for the second season.
Mirzapur Season 2 is Coming Soon
Yes, it is true that the shooting of Mirzapur Season 2 is complete and it is the process of editing and cinematic effects. The exact date of release still remains a secret. Fan have already started speculating about the story of Mirzapur season 2. Well, one thing is certain, keeping in mind the end of the last season, that Guddu Pandit will get his chance to F*** Mirzapur in the next season in his quest to revenge his brother’s (Bablu Pandit) murder.
Munna Tripathi is shown struggling to find a way out in the middle of fire-arm action. Lala will definitely chase Munna Tripathi to revenge the murder of his expected son-in-law. And on the other hand, Ratti Shankar Shukla’s son is committed to rule over Mirzapur. Season 2 of Mirzapur is going to feature more complex rivalry and it seems as if the days of Tripathi dynasty are counted. Obviously, Kaleen’s second wife will find a way to murder Kaleen’s father and she has to if she wants to meet her objectives.
Mirzapur Season 2 Official Trailer
Unfortunately, the official trailer of Mirzapur Season 2 is still in the waiting list. We can anticipate it somewhere around mid-October but we can’t confirm anything at the moment. I just want to see a more meaningful plot this time and hence after if more seasons are in the pipeline. Ideally, I’d like to see Mirzapur changing with time and becoming more civilized. At the moment, at least in Mirzapur season 2, there will be more violence and abuse on display.
True Story of Mirzapur?
Whenever an Indian depiction of the Underworld features the screen, people start attributing the qualities of the character and plots to real-life events. It is true in the case of a few Indian movies. I know how Indians feel when it comes to the Dons such as Dawood Ibrahim, Karim Lala, and Mastaan Mirza. But things have changed in reality. Indians basically love fanaticizing for a particular reason. Basically, most of the underworld in India was and is controlled by Muslims. The reason is that Pathaans and other Muslim clans are far more brave, daring, and somewhat dangerous and they are the ones who kept their activities going even during the British Rule.
Gangs of Wasseypur depicts Muslim characters and most of the story is based on true events (only the original names have been changed). But Mirzapur is complete fiction. It is the depiction of how the Hindus in India fantasize the underworld because they don’t have balls to live such a life even for one hour. And this is the reason why Mirzapur has become a huge success even though it is nothing but violence, immorality, and abuse. On top of that, this time the writers have depicted Hindus as the Mafia Dons. Mirzapur, the real place, is named after a Muslim. There had been illegal activities in the past by today, it is the city of the third safest place in India with a lower crime rate as compared to other Indian cities.
Mirzapur Shows the Mindset
Well, I have no doubt about the fact that Mirzapur 2 is going to increase the level of physical torture, demonstration of adultery, and the use of even more vulgarity. The thing here is, the response to Mirzapur season 1 shows how the public in India fantasizes the underworld. This is something disturbing. I mean, none of these characters shows morality at any level. Even the good characters suddenly turn into an animal under human skin as if they had a dream to become such ruthless individuals. It is also having a negative impact on the young generation. Kids have now started to use the same vulgar language in their private conversations. They frequently repeat Guddu pandit’s dialogue ‘Mirzapur ki G*** Phar K Rakh Dain Gy’ – (Will A** F*** the City of Mirzapur).
If this is what they intend to teach the young generation, it really is their choice but I am not impressed at all!
