The much-awaited Netflix original, Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Saif Ali Khan's 'Sacred Games 2' premiered at 12 AM on August 15. The video streaming giant had built up the follow-up with a series of posters and promos to entice fans waiting with bated breathe for the sequel. The crime drama had everyone hooked to a cliffhanger, and now that the 2nd season is streaming, many netizens have binge-watched the show and Twitter is buzzing with reactions of the same.
However, while social media was buzzing with rave reviews after the first season, it doesn't seem to be a similar case after the release of the sequel. Netizens were left disappointed and many felt that the series was 'overrated'. Read below:

The Netflix India original, based on Vikram Chandra's book of the same name, centres primarily around two main characters - Mumbai Police officer Sartaj Singh (Saif Ali Khan), who is trying to save the city from a possible attack and Gaitonde, who tips him off just before mysteriously killing himself. The second season picked up from where the first part ended wherein Siddiqui says it was easier to slip into the character as he had already played it for a while.
"There is no one like him in real life that I came across. But I can assume that there are people like him. Even if you dislike him, there are two-three good things in him - he loves Mumbai, he doesn't believe in religion and he trusts everyone. It is a grey character, not black entirely. According to Gaitonde, he is right and according to others, he is wrong. He maybe wrong but he is honest to what he is doing.
In season one, it was essential for Siddiqui to understand the world of Gaitonde - both internally and externally."Second season is more internal. Gaitonde is a complicated character. It is for the first time that I had the opportunity delve deep into a character. It was a great experience."The actor says while the makers were confident about how the show will pan out, he did not anticipate that Gaitonde would become so popular, especially with international audiences
