With over thousands of films, documentaries and series available on various platforms, accessible all over the world, it has become a rat race to capture audience’s interests through devoted screen time. But here’s what sets MIRZAPUR – an Amazon Prime Original Series apart from every other show:
1. The perfect ensemble of Star-cast
This show marks the union of talent from all fields alike, but what catches the eye is the diverse yet somehow cohesive star-cast. The pivotal characters are played by stellar actors like Pankaj Tripathi, Ali Fazal and Vikrant Massey and supporting them are the likes of Divyenndu, Rasika Duggal, Shweta Tripathi and Shriya Pilgaonkar. The trailer that captures the essence of the gritty series owes its success to their superior acting skills.
2. The International Emmy Awards Nominee team
After the success of their first stint, Inside Edge, the successful producer-duo Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani are now backing Mirzapur. The trailer that showcases an intense storyline featuring drugs, guns, violence and goons has piqued the interest of the audience and left everyone wondering what more is in store.
3. The story deeply-rooted in India
The show succeeds to celebrate the true spirit of India with tough, fearless characters and a believable plot. Be it the unnecessary honking, the importance of power in small towns or the common nicknames, the trailer contains more than a whiff of India. The characters are relatable and real, not just with a black or white but grey side to them and are based in a backdrop of the real town of Mirzapur. The characters are beautifully layered and glimpses of them have left the audiences curious.
4. The impressive script
Karan Anshuman, who has also written the much-acclaimed series ‘Inside Edge’, has done another stellar job with Mirzapur by coming up with impressive dialogues and capturing the dialect and feel of Mirzapur through his words. The dialogues and conversation seem genuine and right out a real-life situation.
5. The easy accessibility on Amazon Prime Video
Gone are the days when you had to wait for days on end for the next episode to come out. Mirzapur, releasing on the 16th November, will prove to be an excellent weekend binge as it releases all 9 episodes all over the world on the same day - and the best part is that they will be available for re-runs whenever you feel the need to re-watch some intense drama.
