Tv Season Info

The story focuses on Sartaj Singh (Saif Ali Khan), a seasoned and cynical Bombay police officer, summoned by an anonymous tip one morning, a voice which promises him an opportunity to capture the powerful Ganesh Gaitonde (Nawazuddin Siddiqui), criminal overlord of the G-Company. As the stakes mount and Sartaj seeks knowledge of his prey, it becomes clear that the game the two players thought they were engaged in is in fact part of a much larger scenario, one that expands beyond their city.

It may be "just" television, but it's also pushing forth important representation. TV is going global - and Sacred Games is just one way viewers can expand their worldview.

I suspect Anurag Kashyap and Vikramaditya Motwane's exquisitely performed screen adaptation has subconsciously been translated by writers who might have internalized the social undertones, subtexts and latitudinal beats of the 928-page drama.

Yeah, you've heard [this] story before, but Sacred Games weds it to a fresh, intoxicating setting.

Immediately captivating, its story in the criminal underbelly of Mumbai coiled like a labyrinth.
