OTT Releases This Week: Mirzapur Season 3, Srikanth, Space Cadet and More

After a long gap of four years, Prime Video’s blood-soaked original Mirzapur is back! The show stars the likes of Pankaj Tripathi, Rasika Duggal, Shweta Tripathi, and Ali Fazal. In this season, Tripathi’s iconic character of mobster Kaleen Bhaiya takes a backseat, and Faisal’s Guddu Bhaiya shines despite new threats and contenders for the reign. Although the season is a slight upgrade from a sluggish second season, the engaging core of the original season is sporadic this time and keeps ebbing and flowing.

If Mirzapur gets you into the mood of streaming something from the hinterlands, you can also go for Paatal Lok and Tandav on Prime Video, Sacred Games and Delhi Crime on Netflix. Or of course, Gangs of Wasseypur!

There is also Lakhay Lalwani’s Kill, releasing in theatres this week, which’ll give you hearty doses of high-octane action sequences.

Among the post-theatrical releases, we have Rajkummar Rao’s inspiring biopic Srikath on Netflix, in which he is playing the visually impaired industrialist Srikanth Bolla. The film goes on to pan across his days from an unknown disabled person to one of India’s biggest industrialists and philanthropists.

Those looking for a heartwarming pick, go for Netflix’s latest anime, The Imaginary, which will take you to the colorful world of imaginary friends that we forget. They have an entire land with dedicated jobs.

Documentary lovers could delve into the rather bizarre story of a Dutch scammer who was accused of traveling the world deceiving mothers into having their babies on a mass scale.

Mirzapur Season 3

Mirzapur follows the story of Kaleen Bhaiya (Pankaj Tripathi), a mighty gangster who runs an illegal gun and opium business in Mirzapur under the pretext of a carpet business.

In the previous two seasons, we saw how the two newly recruited thugs in his business — Guddu Bhaiya (Ali Faizal) and Bablu Bhaiya (Vikrant Massey) – grew his empire exponentially, making the kingpin’s son Munna (Divyenndu) insecure. As the latter kills his pregnant wife (Shriya Pilgaonkar) and Bablu, Guddu takes revenge. He attacks the father-son duo with the help of his sister–in–law (Shweta Tripathi).

As we enter the third season, Munna is dead, and Kaleen Bhaiya has turned into a grieving father who is no longer interested in taking back his empire; plus, he is hiding. A new threat emerges in front of Guddu in the form of Sharad (Anjum Sharma), who has long awaited the chance to tighten his claws onto the throne. As he strikes back at Guddu with the support of “baithak,” an organized group of such henchmen, the scuffle for Mirzapure continues.

Ali Fazal, Pankaj Tripathi, Shweta Tripathi, and Rasika Duggal are seen in prominent roles.
