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.

All Critics (24) | Top Critics (5)

The series strains to meet such heavy expectations, but the production is generally superb and the writing does not miss a beat.

There's beauty in the way that all of this sinister intrigue is conveyed, but it's a surface-level telling of a story that wants to have so much more in its grasp.

Anurag Kashyap and Vikramaditya Motwane deliver a thriller that doesn't shy away from being an indictment on religion. The show argues that religion has always been used to shape politics, commit murder, and amass wealth.

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.

Bollywood maximalism meets downbeat Euro noir meets Hollywood gangster epic.

Jul 20, 2018 | Full Review…

It wasn't predictable and provided something out of the ordinary compared to the plethora of other crime thrillers available.

Jul 19, 2018 | Full Review…

Flashing between past and present, the first episode left me in some confusion, though there was no denying the fevered atmosphere it conjured up.
