Mirzapur Season 2 Review and Release Live Updates: Mirzapur 2 has started streaming on Amazon Prime Video. 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.

'Season 1 is many times better than this one'

"Expected too much but Seriously disappointed after watching Season 2. Added extra unnecessary character & making it lengthy without climax. Golu & Guddu easily move to & fro and seems they are not in Mirzapur but Some other places. Season 1 is many times better than this one," Twitter user @Oracle_human wrote after watching Mirzapur 2.

Our verdict

In her review of Mirzapur season two, The Indian Express' Ektaa Malik wrote, "Mirzapur season two fails to learn from the mistakes of season one. There are some improvements, sure. Production quality has gone up; it no longer feels and looks like a telefilm from the nineties that used to air on Doordarshan. But everything else gives you a sense of deja vu." Read more

A tribute to the rowdy and fearless Munna Tripathi

I would love to play Beena Tripathi: Pankaj Tripathi

Speaking about the character of his on-screen wife, actor Pankaj Tripathi shared, "I find the character of Beena Tripathi very interesting. If I had the choice to choose a character other than Kaleen Bhaiya’s I would have definitely taken up Beena Tripathi’s role because there is a mystery to her character and Rasika Duggal being the brilliant actress has portrayed the character perfectly."

Sharad Shukla will change the rules of the game: Anjum Sharma

Talking about the character graph of Sharad Shukla, actor Anjum Sharma shared, "Sharad Shukla is the only person in the entire show who despite being a part of the family which is involved in violence, doesn’t want to belong there, unlike Munna or even Guddu. They all wanted power. But he is the only guy who is very sorted. He has a lot of objectivity in the way he looks at things. Now, if that kind of a person decides one day that he wants to kick back, wants to come into this world with a sense of revenge, to change the system and the rules of the game, so that in itself is quite an interesting character graph."

'Enjoy working with people you admire'

Vijay Varma on the ensemble of Mirzapur, "It was a delight. It was an easy and fun experience because they are the finest we have right now and they happen to be my friends. It was basically a picnic for most of us. These people were functioning under the pressure of season one. I was a free bird to do whatever I wanted to, with no baggage from the past. You really enjoy working with people you admire. It was one of those experiences."

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.”
