Based on the critically acclaimed best-selling novel Sacred Games by author Vikram Chandra, the Netflix series Sacred Games, which stars Saif Ali Khan and Nawazzudin Siddiqui will premiere on July 6, 2018 in all territories where Netflix is available. Directed by Anurag Kashyap and Vikramaditya Motwane, the bi-lingual (Hindi and English) series also stars Radhika Apte.
A joint production venture with Netflix and co-produced by Anurag Kashyap, Vikramaditya Motwane and Madhu Mantena of Phantom Films, Sacred Games is an epic masterwork of exceptional richness and power that interweaves the lives of the privileged, the famous, the wretched and the bloodthirsty.
Set in Mumbai, Sacred Games delves into the city’s intricate web of organized crime, corruption, politics and espionage that lie beneath India’s economic renaissance. A policeman, a criminal overlord, a Bollywood film star, politicians, cultists, spies, and terrorists—the lives of the privileged, the famous, the wretched, and the bloodthirsty interweave with cataclysmic consequences amid the chaos of modern-day Mumbai.
The series focuses on Sartaj Singh, a seasoned and cynical Bombay police officer, summoned by an anonymous tip one morning, a voice which promises him an opportunity to capture the powerful Ganesh Gaitonde, criminal overlord of the G-Company. As the stakes mount and Sartaj seeks knowledge of his prey, it becomes clear that the game the two players thought they were engaged in is in fact part of a much larger scenario, one that expands beyond their city.
Mr. Chandra says, “I’m confident that all the colour and vitality and music of the fictional world I’ve lived with for so long will come fully alive on the large-scale canvas provided by Netflix.”
