It is no new fact, that Amazon Prime's Mirzapur is one of the greatest web-series that our country has produced which has gone to received accolades Internationally. Pankaj Tripathi playing Kaleen Bhaiya to Ali Fazal playing the role of Guddu Bhaiya to Shriya Pilgaonkar playing the sexy siren Sweety; this show has a tremendous mass following due to it's the brilliant screenplay, twisted and edgy characters, raw emotions, quirky romance, and the sudden unusual deaths of our favorite characters. Today, we will walk down the memory lane of Mirzapur 1 where we had to bid adieu to our favourite characters on-screen.
The sweet boy who turned to the mafia with humane emotions is what made this character lovable to its audience. Vikrant Massey played the role of Bablu Bhaiya who is the youngest of the two sons. He was very successful in making people believe that his character is fragile and delicate when it comes to emotional values but at the same time considered wise and smart enough to even run an underworld business. Bablu has been the constant favorite of the audience and his death taken as revenge by Munn Bhaiya on Guddu made all his fans weep buckets of tears.
If there is anybody who could really prove the saying that, "Dost ke liye jaan bhi de dengey" then it is our Compunder played by the very own box of talent Abhishek Banerjee. His performance as a loyal friend to the devilry Munna bhaiya is what made us all emotional. His portrayal of Compounder as a friend who is a loyal and funny roadside hooligan but also a doting son back at home is what made this character believable. His sacrifice in trying to protect his best friend's evil act to kill his father took a toll on the fans emotionally who wasn't ready to bid adieu to this character.
A raunchy and siren bombshell who is adored by hundreds of boys finds herself falling in love with the hunk Guddu bhaiya. Shriya Pilgaonkar effortlessly pulls off the role of Sweety who isn't afraid to confess her love to the man first completely opposite of what is expected from the normal society. Her strong sense of love towards Guddu is what leads to her death through the hands of Munna Bhaiya who too was trying to woo her for a very long time.
Rati Shankar Pandey:
If there is anybody who could prove "Loyal Worker Turned Foe" then it has to be Rati Shankar Pandey. Shubrajyoti Bharat did an amazing job with his honest method acting of Rati Shankar Pandey as he showed all of how to play an antagonist in style. His edgy, arrogant, gritty, and greedy nature towards making the land of Mirzapur his own is what caused his death at the hands of Guddu Bhaiya.
Mirzapur at the end of the series, went gory when Munna bhaiya decides to take revenge against Guddu Bhaiya and his entire family where he didn't even spare the unborn child. Meanwhile, the show left is in a lot of cliff hangers where Pankaj Tripathi is seen putting the Senior Superintendent Ram Sharan Maurya played by Amit Sial, and various other officers on the death row. While on the other hand, Satyanand Tripathi played by Kulbhushan Kharbanda makes his daughter-in-law Beena played Rasika Duggal castrate the male servant when they were caught red-handed in a compromising situation. He then further goes on to take the leverage and is seen blackmailing his daughter-in-law to have sex with him as an act of punishment. Overall, Season 1 of Mirzapur has given us a lot of cliff hangers for us to decide what will happen in the future, and with the date of its release approaching soon our patience and curiosity reaching the brim of the glass.
