. . There is nothing more horrible in the history of a published work of fiction than having a television or movie based cover or what-do-they-call it? tie-in edition. The television is still an idiot box for me. I seldom turn it on for it turns me off. . . All that Netflix craze about Sacred Games is at one place but to have movie actors on book covers is trampling upon sacred space...It boils my blood. I am an artist and love reading. I know how it feels to have silly tie-in covers replace works of art. My respect to book cover artists. I finally get my copy of Sacred Games with this beautiful cover from 2007 after extensive online searching. . . . #sacredgames #vikramchandra #bibliophile #bibliophiles #bookcover #fiction #booksofinstagram #booklover #bookstagram #nerdgasm #booklover #amreading #readinggoals
Sacred Games 👏🏼 Wow! Faith in Indian film making restored. Best thing ever to come out from India. It’s like watching True Detective meets Sicario. Well done to the entire cast and crew. Tight production, script, title design, score and casting. Down to every single detail was flawless. Absolutely brilliant! Saif Ali Khan, @nawazuddin._siddiqui , @radhikaofficial . Fantastic job! @luke_kenny_live , wow. Couldn’t even recognize you. Amazing!

SARTAJ SINGH AND GANESH GAITONDE ENTER THE #NETFLIX UNIVERSE WITH VIKRAM CHANDRA’S NOVEL - SACRED GAMES #VikramChandra (batch of 1978) was born in New Delhi. He completed most of his education at #MayoCollege . After a short stay at St. Xavier's College in Mumbai, Mr Vikram went to the United States as an undergraduate student. In 1984, he graduated from #PomonaCollege (in Claremont, near Los Angeles) with a magna cum laude BA in English, with a concentration in creative writing. Both Mr Chandra and his wife, writer #MelanieAbrams teach at the #UniversityofCalifornia , #Berkeley and have two children ages eight and ten. Chandra is also busy with his software business, #Granthika that is in its beta stage. The software connects text with the knowledge created in it — born from the need of an #author like Chandra writing a novel, like #SacredGames – has potential to be applied to legal writing, #journalism , corporate documentation and scientific publishing. Vikram Chandra currently divides his time between #Mumbai and #Berkeley , #California , where he teaches #creativewriting at the University of California.
Sacred Games, Season 1. Wooh, when i saw the trailer for this, it looked really good. And it was, not just good, it was superb. Extremely gripping, each episode makes you want to watch the next one. The format of switching between Ganesh and Sartaj's story worked really well. Some really good characters, especially the leads. Nawazuddin is frickin ace as a jaded gangster. Radhika Apte and Saif Ali Khan were great too. Loved Bunty and Kookoo's characters, very different. Thematically, the plot was good, especially the deadline aspect of it. Great to include some scenes of slight nudity, cuz if it becomes normal, it wont be in the frickin news the next time someome does it. Props for having trans/intersex character, and also the fact that Ganesh loves her anyway. That opening theme is spot on, hypes you right up. Great episode names. Did not think the ending was cliffhanger-y, a lot of the plot points and characters were resolved, it just set the stage for the new stuff woth Guruji and the radioactive/biological terror attack. One down point was that Nawazuddin and Saif's age more or less looks the same age. But hey, thats ok. Must watch. #sacredgames #anuragkashyap #vikramadityamotwane #vikramchandra #saifalikhan #nawazuddinsiddiqui #radhikaapte #jatinsarna #jitendrajoshi #neerajkabi #kubrasait #rajshreedeshpande #lukekenny #pankajtripathi #chittaranjantripathy #girishkulkarni #elnaaznorouzi #karanwahi

More than ten years ago, I had read this 900-page epic written by Vikram Chandra. Finally in the digital world, it gets the attention it deserves. Better late than never. #netflix #sacredgames #sartaj #gaitonde #epic #vikramchandra @anuragkashyap10

I read Sacred Games a few years ago, curled up on a friend’s sofa on New Year’s eve. I read it all through- 947 pages of it- and remember turning page after page thinking of Bombay. Even today, this line stands out for me. (And I’m so thrilled @nawazuddin._siddiqui is playing Gaitonde!) #sacredgames #vikramchandra #books #reading Publisher: @harperperennial Rating: 3/5

I read this book before it was a series! I wish I could say that but I hated Vikram Chandra’s writing so much that I never made past the first few pages, despite the 17 year old me being totally into gangsta stuff. I usually give away the books I don’t like but I kept this one as it is the last book I bought from @jarirbookstore back in 2008.. and now I feel all nostalgic and sad. 💔 . . . . . . . . . . #bookstagram #booksofinstagram #unitedbookstagram #sacredgames #vikramchandra #didntreadthebook

I've always loved books better than it's adaptation on the screen but this time sacred games made me realise how cool a book adaptation can be. Holy s**t it blew my words away. Thank God Netflix is taking India seriously I've recently finished the series and halfway through this beast of a novel(900 pgs) it felt like a rollercoaster ride with every page. We all are fed up with our daily saas-bahu BS, and now there is something we can relate with international standards. It's a must-see, and a must read if you're open-minded and take some gaalis because the first dialogue start with a bang “Bhagwan ko mante ho? Bhagwan ko l**d farak nahi padta.” 😂 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #sacredgames #anuragkashyap #penguinindia #netflix #netflixoriginal #netflixoriginalseries #netflixindia #bookadaptation #vikramchandra #booksarebetterthanmovies #saifalikhan #nawazuddinsiddiqui #macbookpro #macbookair #popularseries #love #revengemovie #thrillerbooks #fictionbooks #thriller #murdermystery #mustsee #novelbased

SACRED GAMES IS A MUST WATCH! Just started watching #Netflix 's first Indian original series and now I know why everybody’s been talking about #SacredGames for the past several days. Starring #NawazuddinSiddiqui as Ganesh Eknath Gaitonde, #SaifAliKhan as Sartaj Singh and #RadhikaApte as Anjali Mathur, Sacred Games takes a close look at the city of dreams during its bloodiest communal riots, in the wake of the Babri Masjid demolition in December 1992. Its has 8 episodes in Season 1, adapted from #VikramChandra 's 928-page tome. @nawazuddin._siddiqui @radhikaofficial sacredgames_tv @netflix_in @anuragkashyap10 @fuhsephantom #Nawazuddin
So much thrill. This show will go for long. When coming to acting of all, Nawazzudin just stole the show. City of mumbai plays a huge role and the way this series showcases indian mythology, history and culture in a different but amazing light. Overall, given the cliffhanger, season 2 is coming and for good reasons. This is a must watch. . . Quotes from the series- . . "bhagwan insaan se kahani mein baat karta hai" . . "bhagwan ko lund farak nahi padta " . . "Kabhi kabhi lagta hai apun hi bhagwan hai" . . "Ye duniya kaise shuru hua pata nahi, kaise khatam hoga, pata hai" . . "bhagwan ko chorro, jaadu maante ho? kabhi kabhi lagta hai apna life jaadu hai" . . "tu meri kismat badlega? dono ek dusre ki badlenge" . . "kaun kisko kaise jaante hai, itna seedha seedha nahi hai" . . "aisa lagta tha apna life puran ki katha hai" . . "poori duniya apni kahani ka chota chota hissa hai" . . "lagta hai che janam pehle ki baat hai jab main ma ko dekha" . . "ankhein band kar ke bolo aham brahma asmi" . . "sab kuch dikhayi dene lagega" . . "jaisa sochoge waisa hi hoga" . . "aadmi ke dimaag mein bhagwan ka idea kahan se aata hai" . . "tu mereko maar diya to hamesha zinda rahega, ashwatthama hai tu." . .

Gaitonde should have written his own Ten Commandments 😂 Sacred Games #sacredgames #nawazuddinsiddiqui #saifalikhan #radhikaapte #anuragkashyap #vikramchandra #vikramadityamotwane #tvquotes #netflix

SACRED GAMES S01E01- ASHWATHAMA SARTAJ SINGH'S thought imparted by the mode of GANESH GAITONDE was sui generis. Another constituent that grabbed my heed was, why Ganesh referred himself as Ashwathama, even after he died. In Mahabharath, Ashwathama didn't die, and it is still believed that he's alive, staying in a deserted or an isolated place. Now here it becomes interesting, Ashwathama dead or alive, he is still glued in the minds of the people. No one knows whether he exists or not, it is in the CONSCIOUS of the people that he's still there. And when Gaitonde shot himself, he started an unstoppable domino that began to unravel a mysterious plot around which the show is based on, so technically he is still in the thought process of the people because he had such a noticable aura in him. And that is the fundamental reason why he calls himself Ashwathama because Ganesh still lives inside the minds of the people, exactly like ASHWATHAMA. . .

Dark Knight reviews: @sacredgames_tv @netflixanz Dark Knight rating: ⭐️ ⭐️⭐⭐ *Do you believe in God? God doesn't give a fuck* is the searing opening line in the terrific #sacredgames This 8 part series based on #vikramchandra book, is a worthy debut of an Indian series to an international audience. Set on a ticking clock to save the city of Mumbai, the series showcases a society, that is rotting from its core. Mixing police corruption, underworld, religion and politics, this is both an allegory and a cautionary tale. Directed by both Kashyap & Motwane its stylish and controlled. While Kashyaps episodes look familiar and incendiary. It's Motwane who knocks it out of the park: his direction, camera placements, wide ranging shots, sound design, set design, the motivations, decisions and actions of his characters, cinematography is spot on. (It has wonderful references, from #meanstreets & #taxidriver to #bloodysunday & #narcos ). It's beautifully edited, impeccably acted and has Mumbai as a central character. Khan is superb, Apte can do no wrong, but it's still Siddiqui who owns this. When he says *Teri phatti na? *it is diabolical. Oh and thank God for desi swearing and nudity. I can't wait for season 2. #saifalikhan #radhikaapte #nawazuddinsiddiqui #anuragkashyap #vikramchandra #vikramadityamotwane #netflix #mumbai

At a time when we ought to be celebrating the success of #SacredGames and the efforts of #AnuragKashyap and #VikramadityaMotwane in bringing #VikramChandra 's monumental work to an international audience across 190 countries via #Netflix , a #Congress leader from West Bengal has filed a complaint against #NawazuddinSiddiqui for his character's derogatory remarks against the former prime minister #RajivGandhi . Earlier this evening, I was invited by #NewsX for a discussion, alongside spokespersons from the Congress and the #RSS , on the issue of artists being a soft target for the politicians who very conveniently keep changing their stands when it comes to the freedom of expression. @anuragkashyap10 @nawazuddin._siddiqui @netflix @netflix_in @radhikaofficial @fuhsephantom @incindia @bjp4india @bjp4delhi #movie #screening #theatre #Premiere #press #delhi #entertainment #instapost #India #cinematic #moviebuff #arts #artist #cinema #filmfestival #festival #filmmaking #mumbai
So my Netflix account is due for the payment and after giving so much thought in, I spent my money to buy an elaborate book rather than watching a shortened adaptation on Netflix.. #sacredgames #readingsacredgames #vikramchandra #sacredgames #sacredgamesnetfilx #newbook
#NetflixOriginals की नई वेब सीरीज '#SacredGames ' आ चुकी है. यह लेखक #VikramChandra के करीब 900 पन्नों के इसी नाम के उपन्यास पर आधारित है. इस सीरिज में #NawazuddinSiddiqui के अलावा एक्टर #SaifAliKhan और #RadhikaApte भी मुख्य किरदार में हैं. . #QuintHindi @netflix_in @sacredgames_tv #Webseries #WebseriesReview #VikaramAdtiyaMotwane #AnuragKashyap #MovieReview #FilmReview #NetflixOriginals
My latest two buys... 1) #sacredgames by #vikramchandra - #sacredgamesnetfilx is the reason I got this & the series has raised my expectations from the book. Looks gripping & I can't wait to begin it. @sacredgames_tv @netflix_in 2) #Essentialism is basically a book that carries the learnings of #TheSubtleArtOfNotGivingAFuck forward. And whatever I have read so far, this seems like a good investment. #booklover #bookstagram #book #newbooks #goodreads #bibliophile #epicreads #amreading #booknerd #fiction #nonfiction #netflix

SACRED GAMES S01E05 This scene explains so much about his mentality towards god. In the opening scene of episode 1 he says,"Bhagwaan ko maante ho? Bhagwaan ko l*** farak nahin padta" This scene supports his every opinion about god. Kuku dies, he's hurt, so he curses god, and he pretends he does not care. Just the way he said even god does not care. Even he claims that he's god and he does not give a damn whether god exists or not. Because,"use l*** farak nahin padta" . .

-IT più in giù- Last year, I visited India (a small corner of it, to be more precise; the country is huge and diverse!) for the second time. An incredible amount of great writers comes from the Subcontinent, and lots of others are inspired by it: India is one of the most written-about places on earth! Whenever I talk about books related to this country with friends, the one that everybody knows about is the epic ‘Shantaram’ by Gregory David Roberts. My personal favorite so far, though, has to be ‘A fine balance’ by Rohinton Mistry; a very powerful -and heartbreaking, I warn you- saga with lots of attaching characters. 📚📚📚 India! Una quantità enorme di eccellenti scrittori viene da questo incredibile ed immenso subcontinente, e molti altri ne sono ispirati. L’India è uno dei posti al mondo su cui si scrive di più! Quando parlo di libri ambientati in questo Paese con amici quello che viene invariabilmente nominato è l’epico ‘Shantaram’ di Gregory David Roberts; ma il mio preferito fin’ora è certamente ‘Un perfetto equilibrio’ scritto da Rohinton Mistry. Una saga piena di personaggi ai quali ci si affeziona come se vivessero accanto a noi; una storia realistica e potente che lascia il segno. 📚📚📚 #shantaram #bookstagram #booksarehome #booksarehappiness #bookworm #booklover #libri #bookaholic #igbooks #ireaditravel #booksphotography #instabooks #bookstagrammer #booknerd #leggerefabene #indianliterature #india #afinebalance #rohintonmistry #indialove #booksmagazine #vikramseth #amitavghosh #travelbook #flatlay #vikramchandra #bookishfeatures
Read the book "Sacred Games" Ages ago, took me nearly a month to finish it, so many characters and details, I could barely keep up. I had to read and re read the pages few times to understand the plot. I have just watched the series on Netflix. Brilliantly made. Highly recommended for those who think the book is too thick to read 😂😉. 900 pages..😂#sacredgames #vikramchandra #book #bookstagram #dublin #ireland
