What was the season 1 of Mirzapur about?
Season 1 starts with Munna Tripathi, son of Akhandanand Tripathi accidentally killing a groom. It is no big deal for him as the people of Mirzapur fear his father because he is said to be the king of Mirzapur. The Tripathi family owns the business of guns and ammunition. The family of the groom that Munna had murdered hires a lawyer to fight their case. To handle the situation, Munna visits the lawyer’s house to warn him and advise him to back out. Munna ends up picking up a fight with the family where the lawyer’s two sons namely Guddu Pandit and Bablu Pandit beat him up. Kaleen Tripathi calls both of them to his house. They cannot refuse to go as ignoring Tripathi would have been very risky.
Both the brothers visit the house only to realize that Kaleen Bhaiyya offered them to work for him. They hesitate at first but end up accepting the offer. This enraged Munna and even though they were working together, there was a huge grudge between them. Guddu ends up marrying Sweety Gupta. Munna had a big crush on her and it ended up increasing their enmity. The last episode showed Munna searching for both the brothers at a marriage of Sweety’s friend and he starts shooting. He ends up killing Bablu and Sweety. Sweety was pregnant at that time but he just didn’t care. He also shot Guddu multiple times. Guddu, her sister Dimpy and Golu manage to escape after Golu gets a gun and fires at Munna but misses thereby creating a distraction.
How did the audience react to the web series?
The show has received a positive response but many have called it out calling it an Anurag Kashyap rip-off series. The violence and the language is not suitable for kids under 18. Hence, promoting such behavior is called to be unethical. The show does not focus on a single character and no moral values are shown as it is filled with violence. With the brilliant casting, the acting of every character is exceptional. However, the show has average ratings calling it a ‘Gangs of Wasseypur’ spinoff. The 2nd season will be available for streaming on Amazon Prime Video. The show is all set to release on 23rd October, 2020.
