Mirzapur 3 is a reality. This makes the Mirzapur franchise one of the few Indian web series to have a third season. It was one of the few web series in India with AAA actors and A-grade production values. When Mirzapur released, it was a boom time for streaming in India. That year saw big releases like Sacred Games, Breathe, and Mirzapur.
The show also introduced the mainstream to Ali Fazal and Pankaj Tripathi, earlier together in the comedy caper Fukrey. Incidentally, this becomes the second time that Fazal and Tripathi are part of a franchise because Fukrey recently had a sequel as well.
Currently, there’s no information about which character will return to the screen in Mirzapur 3 and who will not. Those who have seen both seasons will have a better idea of how the story might progress.
Will Mirzapur 3 have the sex and gore now that streaming is under the GoI purview?
There are some websites giving spoilers about the series and its climax, so we are staying away from giving out any spoilers about the series. The writers bumped off some seemingly important characters, and audiences thought that the juice of then series was gone. However, with the second season’s success, the creators have once again proved the audience and critics wrong.
Mirzapur stars Pankaj Tripathi, Divyendu Sharma, Ali Fazal, Shweta Tripathi, Rasika Duggal, Kulbushan Kharbanda, Vijay Varma, Lilliput, Isha Talwar and others.
Not since movies like Sarkar and Vaastav and the Gangs of Wasseypur franchise did we have such an intense and high profile look at organised crime in India.
Web series like Mirzapur and Sacred Games made streaming and online entertainment legitimate and the Indian media started following the genre. The road ahead will not be easy. The Government has decided to bring online entertainment under its purview. With this, the cuss words and the violence and the sexual content that Mirzapur is famous for might not be present in the third season.
The Mirzapur series has come under some fire for the language and its sexual content. That has not created a big controversy. But with the Government now coming into the picture and the third season on it’s way, we need to check out whether the writers and creators will be able to keep the rawness of Mirzapur intact as it goes into its third season.
Pankaj Tripathi is finally finding his footing in the streaming world. After his raucuous act in Gangs of Wasseypur, Pankaj is part of some fine streaming projects like Ludo and Mirzapur. The Netflix Original Film, Ludo has earned the appreciation of the critics.
