Mirzapur Season 3 Review: Ali Fazal, Pankaj Tripathi Shine; But The Magic Is Missing

Mirzapur Season 3 Review Cinetales

The Mirzapur Season 3 has returned after a four-year break, starring Ali Fazal and Pankaj Tripathi in their respective roles of Guddu and Kaleen. The cards have been rearranged this time, with gore and blood taking center stage. Apart from a few moments of redemption, Mirzapur 3 has failed to create the same magic compared to its previous two seasons. Season 3 stars Pankaj Tripathi, Ali Fazal, Shweta Tripathi Sharma, Rasika Dugal, Vijay Varma, Isha Talwar, Anjumm Sharma, Priyanshu Painyuli, Harshita Shekhar Gaur, Rajesh Tailang, Sheeba Chadha, Meghna Malik and Manu Rishi Chadha. Excel Media and Entertainment produces Mirzapur Season 3. It is streaming on Prime Video.


Mirzapur Season 3 Story

Shweta Tripathi Mirzapur Season 3

After Munna Tripathi’s cremation at the beginning of the season, his business-minded wife Madhuri goes all in, forming partnerships to tighten her hold on power and bring the culprits to justice. While Rasika Dugal, Shweta Tripathi Sharma, Isha Talwar, and Vijay Varma give excellent performances as those involved in or witnesses to the struggle for Mirzapur, Ali Fazal ably carries the show.

In the lawless hinterlands of Purvanchal, the rule of carpet exporter and crime lord Akhandanand Tripathi, also known as Kaleen Bhaiya (Pankaj Tripathi), has come to an end. Now the most wanted man in the town Guddu Pandit (Ali Fazal), has Golu Gupta (Shweta Tripathi Sharma) as his accomplice in crime. Nevertheless, Guddu is not yet the indisputable King of Mirzapur, and the gaddi (throne) remains unstable. He and Golu find themselves in uncontrollably dangerous situations due to their foolish actions and arrogant postures.

Despite the chief minister’s declared goal to rid the area of its violent criminals, the danger of a determined, cunning revenge-seeker Sharad Shukla (Anjumm Shharma) hangs over Guddu and his gun factory, resulting in a war of attrition.


Mirzapur Season 3 Review

Rasika Dugal Mirzapur Season 3

The lengthy prologue of Season 3, introduces us to the dramatic identities and their current situation. It is written by Apurva Dhar Badgaiyann, Avinash Singh Tomar, Vijay Narayan Verma, and Avinash Singh. This is understandable given the length of time that has passed since the last season. However, before you know it, you become used to the characters and the setting, and you spend the next 10 episodes—each lasting 45 to 55 minutes—waiting for something awful to happen.

The program has several plot holes, an overabundance of primary characters, and cliched moments. It charms at the same time with great performances and a captivating first part. Mirzapur is attributed with bringing gore, bloodshed, and violence to the Indian over-the-top entertainment market. Fundamentally, Mirzapur tells the narrative of violence in the Hindi heartland that straddles the political and legal spheres in India. It’s a picture of betrayals, strained relationships, drugs, s*x, and power struggles.

Ali Fazal and Pankaj Tripathi are top-notch in their performance. They carry Season 3 on their shoulders in the absence of Divyendu and Vikrant Massey. Rajesh Tailang plays his part well. Shweta Tripathi Sharma, Isha Talwar, and Rasika Duggal are good in their roles. The problem lies in the runtime of season 3. With a total of 10 episodes, each about 45 to 55 minutes long, feels stretched. The climax makes up for it, but does it take too much time to arrive, for some people, yes it has. It ends on a brilliant note and the post-credit scene will make you excited for Mirzapur Season 4.


Final Verdict

Ali Fazal Mirzapur Season 3

The initial excitement has worn off, and the two main characters from the previous two seasons are essentially absent. The remaining characters, despite Ali Fazal’s outstanding performance as the conflicted Guddu, are forced to sit through lengthy, repetitive songs that are heavily reliant on declarative, flowery prose.

High stakes are involved. There are a lot of dangers. There is a lot of drama. However, the flare is not that strong. Despite the cliched plot, the third season can be a one-time watch. But the bhukaal created by the previous two seasons is absent. Yes, the magic is missing and the lengthy runtime can test your patience to the core. However, this isn’t always a bad thing. Indeed, it provides an opportunity for several stunning and captivating narrative tricks. We give Mirzapur Season 3, 3 stars out of 5.
