Sacred Games: Season 1 Reviews

While it amounts to that simple contrast, along the way there are events and characters that illuminate much more - this is a Mumbai overflowing with sex, drugs, violence, glamour and seediness. It is a bracing and at times brilliantly told tale.

The very expansiveness of its concerns, which incorporate the mystical-religious, set it so far apart from the customary scandi-noir that the genre feels begun anew. For Nawazuddin Siddiqui's face alone I would watch it again.

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.

There's also something riveting about India's bleaker, darker heart being exposed as opposed to some upbeat, colorful explosion of dance scenes.

The combination of dark humor and operatic violence may call to mind "Fargo"; the slightly hyperbolic characterizations and stylized dialogue are akin to those in "Luke Cage."
