Here’s the official synopsis for Mirzapur:
“The journey of two brothers lured by the idea of power only to get consumed by it, Mirzapur is an amped-up portrayal of India’s heartland and youth. It’s a world replete with drugs, guns, and lawlessness, where caste, power, egos and tempers intersect, and violence is the only way of life.”

“Iron-fisted Akhandanand Tripathi (Tripathi) is a millionaire carpet exporter and the mafia don of Mirzapur. His son, Munna — an unworthy, power-hungry heir — will stop at nothing to inherit his father’s legacy. An incident at a wedding procession forces him to cross paths with Ramakant Pandit (Tailang), an upstanding lawyer, and his sons, Guddu (Fazal) and Bablu.
This snowballs into a game of ambition, power and greed that threatens the fabric of the lawless city. With heart-pounding action, violence at an operatic scale, gangsters with sharp minds and dry humour, Mirzapur is a hinterland story that is as raw as it gets.”
