After the wait of 2 long years, Amazon Prime Video India has finally unconfined the second season of Mirzapur on 23rd October, 2020. The eagerness and the hype around this series is incredible. This time there are 10 episodes with an average running time of 55 minutes.
In Mirzapur 2, we dived deep into the lives of the characters and got to learn more about their bad as well as good qualities. One of the very first thing about Mirzapur 2 that will catch your attention is the cinematography by Sanjay Kapoor. The close-up shots, the aerial shots, the addition of cultural information in the frames and the long one take shots made the viewing experience very enjoyable.
The best thing about Mirzapur was the writing and above that was the dialogues written by Puneet Krishna & Vineet Krishna. If you belongs to UP or if you are familiar with the place, you will definitely appreciate the faithful dialogues used in this series. They were correct and suitable for that situation. But in season 2, somehow these factors got a little unsettling. In season 2, everything was going fine until the 6th episode. The story started to drag from there and it pushed till Episode 9. The feel of the action thriller was left in between those subplot developments.
Mirzapur 2 was partly directed by Gurmmeet Singh & Mihir Desai, but most of the episodes were under the supervision of Gurmmeet alone. The show has quite a lot of ups & downs in the last few episodes. Some creative choices were good and some were totally not understandable. As a whole, Mirzapur 2 is good but not great. This season provided me answers and some new questions to think about. The anticipation from Mirzapur 2 was to get much more from this but the creators have settled down for less this time maybe they have a some bigger plans for season 3.
