The trailer of Amazon Prime Video Original Mirzapur was released on line on Tuesday and immediately caught the attention of social media users.
The trailer, which gives glimpses of a crime thriller set in what looks like a small-town Uttar Pradesh is quite impressive. Pankaj Tripathi as gangster Kaleen Bhaiyya immediately comes across as a formidable criminal. Of late, Pankaj Tripathi has constantly been lauded for his amazing range and potential as an actor. It seems Mirzapur too will prove to be another feather in his cap. The trailer shows that the story will be revolving around the brutal scuffle between Kaleen Bhaiyya and two brothers- Guddu and Bablu.
The cast of Mirzapur includes Ali Fazal, Vikrant Massey, Shweta Tripathi, Shriya Pilgaonkar, Rasika Dugal, Harshita Gaur, Divyendu Sharma and Kulbhushan Kharbanda.
Ali Fazal and Divyendu Sharma have already wooed audiences by the boy-next-door characters which they have played on screen. Ali Fazal in fact has gone on to work in some international productions as well. The web series is directed by Gurmeet Singh and is produced by Ritesh Sidhwani and Farhan Akhtar under the banner of Excel Entertainment.
