Sacred Games is probably one of the worst Netflix original shows that I have seen. The platform is known for its content which is gripping and has a certain flavour and pace. Sacred Games lacks in just about every department. Most actors seem like average performers. Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Radhika Apte have been 'criminally' wasted.
Saif Ali Khan fails to build my faith in his character Sartaj, a cop fighting for the truth. In fact, Sartaj appears to be the most confused character of the lot. All this series has done is that it has helped everyone except Netflix make money. As a fan of the platform's original content, I humbly request them to source good local content and spend a little bit of time researching and scouting content. Even if I were to eliminate stars from the line-up, the show would still under-perform for the lack of a gripping narrative. Stars can draw footfall at the cinemas, not on a web-show. Sacred Games appears to be a desperate attempt by Netflix to cater to its growing Indian base, without any due-diligence. #netflix #sacredgames #review #mytake
