After almost two years of wait, the second season of Mirzapur was released a few days ago. When the fans watched it, they felt Deja vu, because the storyline seemed quite similar to something they had watched before – Game of Thrones.
There’s fight for the throne, politics, revenge, drama, lust for power, visual violence and more — not only in GoT but also in Mirzapur.
Just like in GoT, people fought to sit on throne, in Mirzapur, the fight was to become the king of Mirzapur. All main characters wanted the Gaddi of Mirzapur.
Munna Tripathi (Divyendu) hijacking a wedding and killing main characters of the show including Babloo Pandit (Vikrant Massey) and Sweety Gupta (Shriya Pilgaonkar) reminds us of the infamous Red Wedding that led to massacring of Robb Stark and Catelyn Stark.
Bablu Pandit death is similar to that of Robb Stark. Both the characters were quite similar as well. Both were intelligent and had the potential to the rule and win for their respective families, however, they both died soon.
Not only that, Sweety dies almost similar to how Robb Stark’s pregnant wife Talisa Stark died on the show.
Just like Joffrey, Munna is brutal, despised by those around him, is a bit coward and a lot of arrogant too. Yet, just like Cersei, Kaleen Bhaiaya also wants his good for nothing son to sit the throne, because “Ch***ya Hai Ye Important Nahi Hamara Ladka Hai Ye Important Hai”
While in many shows, especially Indian TV series, female characters are only wooing the powerful male characters. In this show, just like GoT, the female characters were strong. Be it sexually liberated Beena (Rasika Duggal) or Golu who dreams to rule on Mirzapur, the female characters played key roles in the story of Mirzapur, just like Game of Thrones had characters like Arya Stark, Cersei Lannister and Daenerys Targaryen.
After the mutilation scene, Bauji forcefully sleeps with Beena. Remember when Tywin Lannister forcibly slept with Shae, who was his son Tyrion Lannister’s lover?
He is crippled, knows nothing initially yet is the hero of the story, an amalgamation of Ned Stark, Jon Snow and Bran Stark. There’s uncanny similarity between the scene when Ned Stark sits on the throne and Guddu Pandit seemingly takes the throne of Mirzapur at the end of season 2.
Madhuri Yadav, the daughter of CM Surya Pratap Yadav (played by Paritosh Sand), is one of the new characters introduced in season 2 of Mirzapur. She is lively, fierce and has no interest in politics but is fighting off for her father, just like how Margaery Tyrell, granddaughter of Lady Olenna Tyrell, becomes a part of the politics in GoT. Both of the characters are elegant, sophisticated and intelligent as well.
