    A raw, gripping crime drama in the best tradition of Godfather and Goodfellas. Laced with ambition and cruelty, this series shows an unvarnished underbelly of the criminal and religious organizations, one that grows through sheer determination and grit from the slums of the megacity. Nawazzudin is our Brando, he alone holds up this series like a weary, wiry Atlas, the weight of the dark underworld on his thin shoulders. He is a truly unforgettable character, seizing every scene with his audio or visual presence, combining so many complex traits into a singular character - filthy guttural language fit for the slums, noble-minded patriotism and vision for the nation, fierce loyalty to kith and kin, harsh brutality and fatality to traitorous scum. I watched this series for him, the rest were decorations. In these sacred games of melding politics and religion, one sees the standard template used by all dictators and autocrats today, in all types of nations both developed and developing. Manipulating the masses to slit each other's throats is the oldest game of all. The series gives a much-needed insight into the Everest-sized mountains of bullshit that new age gurus preach around the world. It is fascinating to hear the glib, golden words slip from a so-called holy man's tongue while at the same time espousing heinous crimes against humanity and indulging in perversions. In this age of lost souls, it is very easy to see how millions can fall sway to these mass brainwashing religion manipulators. However at the end of the day, their sacred vessels fail them and they taste of death, leaving a poisoned chalice behind for their followers to drink from. Pankaj Tripathi gives a master class in the role of the diabolic guru, just spectacular. On the ground level, it is quite sad to see brave souls fall victim to their carelessness and over-confidence. In the cutthroat ambition of outdoing your peers, no one can rely on their companions, and end up taking unnecessary risks of life and limb. The prevalence of meaningless killing is typical of such series, but the proliferation of meaningless suicide is even more alarming. Large characters are reduced to blithering, diminished fools with their needless sacrifices, which seems to be a running theme. I appreciate a cliffhanger as much as the next person, but the ending of this series left me with frustration and a lack of closure. This 16 episode arc covered many questions or morality, with each character vacillating between hero and villain, a final lesson was required. Like the fake guru claims, things cannot mean something and nothing simultaneously, there has to be a message or meaning to the journey.

    While the series starts off with a lot of suspense and draws you in, it doesn't take long before it turns into a repetitive case of secular violence and poorly executed scenes. The series has nothing to offer other than nudity and sex in the hope that people stick around to watch another episode. The story itself is a sad testament to the paranoia being spread in the Indian community about it's own population as well as the perceived threat to its sovereignty by other nations. Two thumbs down.
