Sacred Games (2018)Directed by Vikramaditya Motwane and Anurag KashyapI finished watching the 8 episodes of "Sacred Games" on Netflix a couple of days back. It was really really good! Based on Vikram Chandra's novel, this show is set in Mumbai, and begins with gangster Ganesh Gaitonde (Nawazuddin Siddiqui) resurfacing after 16 years, getting in touch with cop Sartaj Singh (Saif Ali Khan), and hinting at a terror plot, something that is going to happen in 25 days. We see flashbacks to Gaitonde's life in Bombay of the 1980s and 1990s (these scenes were directed by Anurag Kashyap), while the present day story unfolds (these scenes directed by Vikramaditya Motwane). The production value is superb. The show is very cinematic and gritty (leagues ahead I felt, compared to Amazon's "Breathe"). The Bombay scenes felt like they could be from a "Gangs of Wasseypur". The performances, cinematography and music are all great and the show is gripping. The only downside is that this set of 8 episodes adapts only the early part of the book – so it's like the first act in a movie, and makes you eager for Season 2 and 3!The show has more adult content (some nudity, sex, violence and language) than you'd see in any movie released in theatres in India. A good thing that it's on this platform so the creators are not under any kind of censorship.Nawaz is incredible in anything that he is in, and it's no different here. I drew him as Ganesh Gaitonde. This was a quick sketch with Bic ballpoint pen on paper, and this is a scan.Note: The opening title sequence is great! I follow @simplyputtu on Twitter, he was involved in the making of the opening sequence of "Angry Indian Goddesses" as well, and in this one too.#358 / 19-Jul-18#sacredgames #dailymoviesketch #saifalikhan #radhikaapte #nawazuddinsiddiqui #ballpointpen #pen
