MX Original Series 'Raktanchal 2' realistically mirrors the dogmatic landscape of the 90s and one can’t help but draw parallels to the intriguing characters of this narrative which is inspired by true events. Here are some uncanny similarities that we could identify, what’s your take on it?
Krishnanand Rai/Ramanand Rai - In the show, the character of Ramanand Rai gives a sneak peek of Krishnanand Rai’s journey in UP’s politics. Just like Krishnanand Rai, Ramanand is shown as a calm, focused and goal-oriented person who has the power to manipulate anyone. He can go to any extent for his gain.
Mayawati/Saraswati Devi - The character of Saraswati Devi reminds us of Mayawati, who changed the face of UP Politics and is one of the most powerful women leaders in India today.
Brijesh Singh/ Vijay Singh - We can see the similarity between Vijay Singh with Brijesh Singh, a leader from Purvanchal who came from the world of darkness and crime and became the Bahubali of Purvanchal. Vijay Singh is honest, resolute, and determined.
Mukhtar Ansari/Waseem Khan - In the trailer, Waseem Khan’s character seems to resemble Mukhtar Ansari who was once known for terrorizing not only Purvanchal but all of Uttar Pradesh. Waseem Khan is shown as hot-headed, ultra-strong, impulsive, and dominating, who is obsessed with his political ambition.
