Sacred Games Review: The Netflix Original Series Is Great For Binge Watching


New Delhi: Based on the novel by Vikram Chandra, 'Sacred Games' is the Netflix's first Indian original series. 
In the series, Saif Ali Khan plays the role of a hapless honest cop stuck in a corrupt system. He is a man with moral principles and refuses to lie. He is even ready to take the fall for his ethics. 

On the other hand Nawazuddin Siddiqui plays the character of Gaitonde, who is a don with a God complex. Gaitonde has a rather morbid back story, and he uses Sartaj Singh to tell his story.

The series begins with Sartaj Singh receing an anonymous call warning him of a looming danger that would destroy Mumbai in 25 days. The anonymous caller turns out to be Gaitonde, a notorious Mumbai criminal who’s been missing for years and thought dead. 
 
In the first few episodes, the narrative cuts down between these two men, as we have a deeper look into their lives.

Packed by the powerful performances by Saif Ali Khan and Nawazuddin Siddiqui, the show is being called as India's answer to Narcos. But we are yet to find out if the show will be able to deliver, what it promises. The editing by Aarti Bajaj is sharp and will keep you hooked through the episodes.

The story arc of the individual characters, go hand-in-hand with the bigger story arc of the show and at no point does one overpower the other.

The show is shot and cut purely like a film, but directors Vikramaditya Motwane and Anurag Kashyap have chosen angles, perspectives and visual methodologies that serve the medium that Sacred Games is made for.

The classic original score by Alokananda Dasgupta enhances the thrill of the show.

Netflix is publicising an array of future Indian projects, but has chosen to start production from the same genre as a previous success, the American-Colombian “Narcos.”

With the projects like Lust Stories and now Sacred Games, it looks like Netflix is off to a good start.
