Sacred Games Season 2 review: It is a decent watch, but don’t expect much from it


By: Murtuza Nullwala

After waiting for a year, finally the Sacred Games season two started streaming on Netflix on 15th August 2019. When the first season ended, we had a lot of questions about the series especially about the ‘teesra baap of Ganesh Gaitonde’. Thankfully all the questions are answered in season two.

Season one was very interesting. It was something new for the audiences. It had the thrill factor, suspense and most importantly it was entertaining. When a season two of a series comes out, we expect that it will take the series to a higher level, but that doesn’t happen here. Of course, the makers have taken the production to a better level, but content-wise it is same as season one.

We are not saying that Sacred Games season 2 is bad, it is interesting, it has a few scenes that will give you an adrenaline rush but it fails to reach our expectations. Also, the narrative is stretched a bit and the pace of the series becomes quite slow in a few episodes. The last scene of the season two does wonders because now we need to wait for season three to know what exactly happens next, or maybe the makers are yet to release the final episode of season two.

Performance-wise, it is Nawazuddin Siddiqui who steals the show. He is fantastic. Saif Ali Khan is also quite good as Sartaj Singh, but his character doesn’t get developed much in season two. Pankaj Tripathi is amazing in his role of Guruji. Kalki Koechlin looks beautiful and has performed very well. Amruta Subhash nails it as Kusum Devi Yadav and Surveen Chawla makes her presence felt. Anupriya Goenka, Elnaaz Norouzi, Samir Kochhar, Neeraj Kabi, and other supporting actors are good in their respective roles. By the way, we miss Radhika Apte in season two.

Overall, Sacred Games season two is decent, but don’t expect much from it. If you have seen season one then, of course, season two is a must watch to get all the answers for the questions you had in your mind after watching the first season.
