Season 1 of Mirzapur is created by Excel Media and Entertainment. The showrunner is Karan Anshuman, creator of Inside Edge. It is written by Puneet Krishna and features some of the most promising young talents of Bollywood.
Set in the heartland of India, Mirzapur is a 9-episode series revolving around drugs, guns and lawlessness. It is a gritty, hard-hitting drama - dark and sinister. The story opens into the world of Kaleen Bhaiya, the don who currently rules over Mirzapur, flexing absolute power. His son Munna, heir to the empire, believes he is ready to take over from his father sooner rather than later and meanders through life keeping himself busy with petty fights, college elections, drugs and brothels. Mirzapur is the journey of these two brothers, who stumble into the criminal world at first lured by the power, only to get consumed by it. With heart-pounding action, violence at an operatic scale, gangsters with sharp minds and dry humor; Mirzapur is a hinterland story like never seen before.
55 years old. Also known as ‘Kaleen Bhaiya', King of Mirzapur. A millionaire carpet exporter, he trades with countries across the globe. But his primary businesses are local, illegal and hugely profitable: desi katte (local arms) and drugs (specifically, heroin). Runs the city from his mansion. Has bought off cops and politicians.
25 years old. The town’s College President (where Guddu and Bablu also attend), Kaaleen Bhaiya’s only son and heir to the empire. Struts about town with his henchmen and a sense of entitlement: a veritable free-roaming, gun brandishing, criminal who terrorizes the locals with his whims. Drives a pimped Scorpio and loves his car like his life. Ambitious and in great anticipation to take over his father’s businesses – rather impatiently. Heroin addict.
25 years old. Elder brother, daring and violent, does not hesitate to pull the trigger. He acts before he thinks; the muscles of the duo, the doer. He is obsessed with winning the bodybuilding title of Mr East UP and works hard towards it.
23 years old. Younger brother, equally daring and violent but the sort who will think twice before pumping bullets into someone. A strategist and thinker, comes across as a genius in the world of goons.
