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.

Critic Reviews for Sacred Games Season 1

All Critics (23) | 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.

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.

Sep 4, 2018 | Full Review…

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.

Jul 17, 2018 | Full Review…

The criminal-mastermind-toys-with-cop trick is old hat, but the series injects it with neo-noir flair.
