MirzaPur Season 3 (Review) – Overly Stretched and Boring

After a long wait of almost four years, a popular crime thriller series of Amazon Prime Mirzapur is back with its third season.

The first two seasons of Mirzapur created by Karan Anshuman. He wrote the script along with Puneet Krishna and Vineet Krishna for Amazon Prime Video. But most of the script for the third season is written by Avinash Singh Tomar and directed by Gurmeet Singh and Anand Iyer.

In the third season of the Mirzapur, main cast features Pankaj Tripathi, Ali Fazal, Shweta Tripathi, Anjum Sharma, Rasika Dugal Vijay Varma and Isha Talwar.

Fans of Mirzapur were optimistic that season 3 will be interesting like the first two seasons. But it was bit disappointing. The season begins with Munna’s dead body. It ended the suspense that Munna will somehow return in the series.

One of the features of this Mirzapur was its interesting dialogues, the storyline and the writers (Karan Anshuman, Puneet Krishna, Vineet Krishna). They have idea how to write dialogues for the ordinary characters. They displayed their skills in the series previously. Now maybe the makers of the series just wanted to make money by using Mirzapur’s name while changing his scriptwriters.

Avinash Singh Tomar wrote most of the script of the third season. He changed the look of Mirzapur. There was no suspense, no interesting dialogue and so many characters that it was hard to understand what was going on.

The Best part of this season was Ali Fazal Aka Guddu Pandit. He literally carried the show. But the storyline headed nowhere. The writers seemed not to have a clue what they were going to do.

Anjum Sharma as Sharad Shukla give tough competition to Ali Fazal in terms of acting and dialogue delivery. Kaleen Bhaiya, who is the main character of Mirzapur, was lying semi-unconscious on the bed for half of the season. In the first two seasons, Pankaj Tripathi gave life to the role of Kaleen Bhaiya with his powerful acting. But this time, he was given very less screen. It felt like he is a useless character. In the last two episodes, Kaleen Bhaiya was seen in his old form.

In the fourth season, maybe the story will improve and Mirzapur will look like what it is famous for. But to make the fourth season a success, it is necessary to write the script from its old writers. Overall, Season 3 disappointed me. Watch it at your own risk.
