Sacred Games, a Netflix original series released on 6th July and gained immense appreciation from all quarters of the world. The show is based on Vikram Chandra’s epic novel of the same name and is adapted by Varun Grover. And safe to say, he has done an impeccable job and the same goes for the director duo Kashyap and Motwane. The series takes jibes on religion, corruption and political scandals; filled with nudity, abusive language, and extreme violence, the series is a prime example of what a neo-noir thriller should look like.
But, guess some portions of the series are not well received by a certain section of the society. All India Congress member from West Bengal has filed a complaint against Nawazuddin, Netflix and the producers of the show for allegedly insulting former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi.
The series highlighted Bofors scandal and Emergency era and took sarcastic remarks at the Congress party. The complaint alleges, "Sacred Games has a scene in which the protagonist of the serial Nawazuddin Siddiqui is seen abusing late Prime Minister Shri Rajiv Gandhi and calling him Fattu.” The complaint also alleges the extreme nudity and profanity that has been involved with the show.
The show, however, is trending really good on Netflix and is enjoying a superb 9.8 rating on IMDB. People are loving the guts of the makers who went guns out to deliver a superb piece of cinema. The show ends on a heart-pounding cliffhanger and people are eagerly waiting for the second season to drop in.
