Sacred Games Review

  • 5/5
My favorite of all time....

The warp and weft of Vikramaditya Motwane and Anurag Kashyap's Sacred Games is love, deceit and chaos hinged on a good-versus-evil hook. The director duo turns the concepts of good and evil on their heads, moulding their lead characters — cop Sartaj Singh and crime overlord Ganesh Gaitonde — as vulnerable and volatile. This cat-and-mouse chase thriller kicks off when the crime kingpin calls up Singh, bearing a simple message — he has 25 days before Mumbai is razed to the ground.

It's a classic Mumbai noir, a world masterfully painted by the filmmakers. So you are spared nothing — the grime of the gullies, gore from body parts scattered on the road, gloss of the silver screen, gangsters and their gunfights.
