In season one we heard sitar, peepni, tabla. In Mirzapur season 2 “Bajega pura Band!”
Mirzapur Season 2 was announced by Amazon in February 2020. A short video was used to create a hype among viewers. However, this video was not a proper trailer and consisted of the scenes from season one. Mirzapur Season 1 had already engrossed the Indian audience into its world of mafia wars and drama. Fans are wildly anticipating about what the second season has to offer.
Mirzapur Season 2: Plot
Alert !! Spoilers for Season 1 !!
Season one followed the story of two young brothers Guddu and Bablu Pandit. Guddu and Bablu get entangled in the notorious world of drug mafias by joining hands with Mirzapur’s top drug mafia Akhandnath Tripathi.
But by joining hands with one gangster they automatically become an eye-sore to others. They rise in ranks under Tripathi and start a large scale illegal business of armaments.
Guddu is unable to keep his personal and professional lives apart. He falls in love and marries with a girls named Sweety. However, she happens to be the desire of Munna as well who is Tripathi’s son.
This is where the story begins to take a reasonable stand and the enmity between Guddu and Munna worsens. What follows is a series of gunshots and more gunshots in revenge of the previous ones.
Expected Plot of Season 2
We can expect season two to delve deeper into the past of the mafias. We can assume this because of the death of major characters like Sweety and Bablu in the finale of season one.
Season two might revolve around Guddu’s attempts to avenge the death of his brother and his wife. In addition to this, there is a constant threat of Guddu being killed by other gangsters.
Whom can you expect in season two
Mirzapur Season 2 casting is not going to be very different from season 1. The actors had garnered great praise and appreciation for their excellent works in season 1.
This makes it all the more obvious that we will be seeing many familiar faces. Although an official cast list has not been released by Amazon but hopefully the main cast will return.
The very versatile Pankaj Tripathi will be there to continue as Akhandnath Tripathi. Divyendu Sharma will be back as the evil Munna. Ali Fazal as Guddu is a constant of the series. Rasika Duggal will probably return for her role as Beena Tripathi. However, it is unclear if Vikrant Massey will be back as Bablu. Moreover, return of Shriya Pilgaonkar as Sweety is also not confirmed.
Expected Release Date
Season 1 of the series aired on Amzon Prime Video in November 2018. So, the audience were expecting a second season to be out there in November 2019. But this could not happen due to unknown reasons.
Earlier this year Amazon announced the release date of Mirzapur Season 2 to be November 25 2020. We are eagerly waiting for the series to return.
Our take on the series
The series has often been described as needlessly violent. Critics say that it is just an attempt to please Anurag Kashyap loyalists. And the story has been described as a “muddled heap” and the script “inconsistent”.
But there is one thing that the critics agree to in unison. And it’s that this sinking ship of drama has been saved by the extraordinary acting skills of a team led by Pankaj Tripathi.
However, the viewers’ reactions gives no air to crtics’ remarks. The series has quickly become the most watched Indian series.
