While actors like Pankaj Tripathi, Divyenndu Sharmaa, Ali Fazal, Shweta Tripathi, Rasika Dugal and Harshita Gaur will reprise their roles, Vijay Varma, Priyanshu Painyuli, Isha Talwar are the new members of the cast this season. Created by Karan Anshuman and Puneet Krishna, Mirzapur has been bankrolled by Ritesh Sidhwani and Farhan Akhtar. The web series revolves around the corruption, crime, governance failure, rule of mafia dons and gang wars in the titular eastern UP town. It’s new season takes the story forward as the fight to become the king of Mirzapur continues between Guddu Pandit and Munna Bhaiya.
In the trailer, we saw crime lord Kaleen Bhaiya defining the rules for the people of Mirzapur, while his wayward son Munna adding his own take. Meanwhile, Guddu Pandit has just one thing in mind – to avenge the death of his brother (Vikrant Massey) and his wife (Shriya Pilgaonkar). Joining him is Sweety’s sister Golu. Apart from revenge, the two are determined to rule Mirzapur as well.
Joining the race to sit on the throne of Mirzapur is Kaleen Bhaiya’s nemesis Rati Shankar Pandey’s son Sharad Shukla, Dadda Tyagi and his grandson. Now, who will manage to win the battle, is what forms the core of the plot. The second season looks a lot more intense, action-packed and bloody.
Mirzapur season one received mixed reviews, however, the audience lapped it up. It remains to be seen how the fans will react to the new season. For now, they seem sufficiently intrigued and excited, thanks to some excellent marketing by Amazon Prime Video.
The official synopsis of Mirzapur Season 2 reads, "The world of Mirzapur has become more about power, politics and revenge. It is about conspiracies and people double-crossing each other while carrying guns that they won’t hesitate to use. This season doesn’t stay confined to the violent world of Mirzapur - It takes us to the power corridors where a nexus between politics and criminals prevails. This season also takes us to a land beyond Mirzapur, a place which has its own set of violent and powerful families running various illegal businesses. The women of Mirzapur have become bolder and more complex. They will not hesitate in using any means to achieve their goals. Who will win in the end? Is there any one left to challenge the Tripathis? The canvas gets bigger this season, but the rules remain the same - without spilling blood you won’t survive here!"
Speaking about returning to Mirzapur as Munna Bhaiya, Divyenndu Sharmaa told indianexpress.com, "Munna has got this self-belief that no one can do anything to him. He has this constant belief in himself that ‘You are the man’. He thinks ‘I can do anything and everything.’ It was lovely to play Munna in such different settings and circumstances. I really enjoyed that change of scenario.”
