Mirzapur season 2: Worth the hype?
Amazon dropped Mirzapur season 2 on 22nd October 2020. The fans were so excited for the new season and amazon didn’t hesitate to hype it up more. They kept on teasing the fans with teasers and new videos. So is Mirzapur season 2 really worth watching and as good as the hype created for it? Let’s see.
Mirzapur season 2: Plot
Mirzapur season 1 ended with a cliffhanger with Bablu and pregnant sweety being dead. Bina picks up a gu at the end and no one knew what happened to Munna. Meanwhile, Golu, Guddu, and Dimpy left the wedding safely leaving lots of questions for Mirzapur season 2.
We of course guessed that it would be something about revenge as Munna and sweety died and Guddu won’t be silent. The plot revolves around the same. Munna is all healthy and safe whereas Guddu is injured and is boiling with anger and wants the revenge of his dead brother and the love of his life, sweety, who was also pregnant.
The show is all about Guddu, Golu, and Dimpy who has to stay low for the sake of their survival but also are finding ways to somehow get to Mirzapur and get their job done.
Meanwhile, Kaleen Bhaiya is under pressure as the highjack (At the wedding) was done by Munna and hence, is an accuse. So how will Kaleen Bhaiya figure this out?
Mirzapur Season 2: Direction and Story writing
Mirzapur season 2 is directed by Gurmeet Singh and Mihir Desai. And let me tell you guys, the direction of the show is at its peak. The drone shots, the fighting scenes, chasing scenes can catch you off guard so real quick that you won’t know how the time passed by.
The other things like putting in little details to hint you what will happen are as insane. You just have to look closely at what the director really wants to show you and you will exactly know what is going on. (And if you won’t, we will come up with an explanation article for this. I got you. Don’t worry!)
I would say that that the storyline and its writing was so great that I consider it to be better than season 1. Season 1 has this everyone “wants to be bad for no reason” vibe going on. But season 2 puts it so well in place.
This season gives the characters a strong reason for us to understand why they are doing what they are doing and hence the season feels more powerful. You can actually go in with the pain and anger they are going through, and really understand why what their next step should be.
Other than that the show really adds these cute little funny moments here and there which are not forced. It goes with such a flow that rather than taking you out of the show, it puts you more in it. ( So maybe by now you would have left the article. Because by far I gave you all the reasons why it is good. But if you are still sticking around. Thanks!)
Mirzapur season 2: Acting
I don’t know what to say about this man. If you have read my previous articles, you must have already figured out how much I appreciate this man. I think he melts into the character he chooses.
I know, it’s the same role with at most same emotions, but I can’t leave this man out. Pankaj Tripathi is the heart of the show and you can’t deny it. ( Actually, he is the main reason I watch this show. No offense. I can watch anything with Pankaj Tripathi in it.)
We have seen Ali Fazal playing Guddu, and we know how perfectly he suits for this role. His innocence, his stubbornness, and his anger, he plays it so well.
But we get to see different Guddu in season 2. Guddu, who is still angry but more mature. Yes, still stubborn but still gets right back to track. He just takes to the emotion ride we didn’t think we needed. And on top of this, this Guddu is grieving. And Ali Fazal pulled it off so well.
Remember her? Most probably yes. She was the absolute cherry on the top. The whole switch in his character and turning it off to something else is absolutely what we need from the show.
The whole bold Golu, her anger, her new goals, gave such a shape to the show that made it more Amazing. And Shweta Tripathi knew how to do it. She took the character switch so well that the changes in the show don’t feel weird.
And all of the other actors like Divyendu Sharma (Who plays Munna), Rasika Dugal (Beena), Harshita gaur (Dimpy) played their role as great as the other I mentioned. I have seen Harshita Gaur in the show Sadda Haq, in which she has as bold character as Dimpy in the second season.
The one actor who really surprised me was Anjum Sharma who played Sharad Shukla (Son of Rati Shukla), who also had a big character switch in the second season. I can say that all the cast members did a fantastic job. (At least for me.)
Mirzapur season 2: The conclusion
So we started with the question that “Is Mirzapur season 2 worth the hype?” and the answer is a big Yes. The story writing was even better than season 1. Stronger characters, stronger reasons, and stronger story.
The story just got more interesting and you will absolutely love it. (And even more, if you are already a fan.) If you are someone who was waiting for season two and is scared that it won’t live up to the mark, let me tell you, that is not the case. (But also if you are a fan, you already must fave watched it no matter what.)
So this was Mirzapur season 2 for me. Can’t promise that everyone will love it. But for me, the story just got stronger. They actually didn’t want this to get ruined.
Let me know what you guys think of the season if you already watched it. Have you been waiting for season 2 eagerly? Did it leave up to your mark? And I will get back to you guys with something really soon. Until then, be kind. Spread love. Peace!
