Trivia

Vikramaditya Motwane said that the digital series medium was "liberating" as he was able to tell stories that "don't have to be told in two-and-a-half hours with an interval and three songs inserted into it." See more »

Goofs

The medals keep changing positions on the Police Officers uniforms and do not seem to be worn in the correct order of precedence. Also in flashback scenes they are wearing the Indian 50th Independence Anniversary Medal, which would not have been awarded before 1997. See more »

This show talks about revolution. Literally. In Indian cinema. But. Great shows deserve great ending. Alas!!!
7 July 2018 | by shubhamtyagi-10119See all my reviews

This is first Indian netflix original series directed by Anurag Kashyap and Vikramaditya Motwani.

The second season was a bigger disappointment than what I'm to my parents. Well, jokes apart, S02 was not as bad but S01 actually raised the bar so high that matching upto that level was never going to be easy. They just made the Gaitonde's character a mere joke. Guruji's character doesn't have the potential that we expected. The more they digged into other characters, more cartoonish they looked except Zoya, Malcolm and Jojo's character. They kept an open ending in S02 also but I hope they better come with a killer script else...

First 30 seconds in the first episode and you'll get to know that this series is going to be dark, edgy and controversial. This series starts with bold statements on religion, and then continues with same on political figures like Rajiv Gandhi to a lot of cuss words, violence and drug use. If you're a person who gets offended very easily then I advise you to keep yourself away form it.

Sacred Games is just an example of what Anurag Kashyap is capable of. This is his real potential. Now screw CBFC. I maybe am a bit biased towards Anurag Kashyap or Phantom productions in general.

The whole cast did a great job, while we saw Saif Ali Khan in a good role after Omkara and Being Cyrus. Radhika Apte has a quite short but impressive role. In my opinion Neeraj Kabi, Jatin Sarna and Nawazuddin are the backbone of the series.
