The scramble for the throne of Mirzapur continues in the Mirzapur season 2 which belongs to Akhandanand Tripathi a.k.a. Kaleen Bhaiya. Notwithstanding an amuse of full-bodied performance, isn't exactly an affair. Only an entrenched fan will only find the nine hours that the show demands worthy but not the critics.
But it wasn't a downpour even. The season is well-plotted and scripted by Puneet Krishna and Vineet Krishna and well-directed by Mihir Desai and Gurmeet Singh. The season lags because of not so genuine, relatable political and social content. The story like in season one informs in an unscrupulous lacuna. Neither the political powers nor the police has a say on what's happening around. It's just a cinch for the mobster.
The imperturbable Kaleen Bhaiya, retaining a grip on the ostensible towns, guns and opium trades has his sights set on the crowbars of political power in Lucknow. The season completely dissolves the election process where a chief minister wins re-election in the State Assembly election who is chosen randomly with no opposition.
But coming on to the actors in their elements does a phenomenal job. The season projects Munna Bhaiya's soft side with a headstrong character. The revenge-drama season has a female-dominated storyline where the female characters are too very manipulative which helps to stretch down the story. The story ends with a cliffhanger which gives hopes to the fans for the next season.
