The third season of Mirzapur has been released.

The third season of Mirzapur has been streamed on the OTT platform Amazon Prime. This 9-episode crime thriller series has been rated 3.5 stars out of 5 by Dainik Bhaskar.

What is the story of the series?
The story begins from the end of the last season. By killing Munna Tripathi and removing Kaleen Bhaiya, Guddu Pandit has declared himself the Bahubali of Mirzapur. Now he wants to sit on the throne of Purvanchal, but the biggest hurdle in his way is Sharad Shukla of Jaunpur and some Bahubali of the West. Here, no one has any idea where Kaleen Bhaiya (Pankaj Tripathi) is.

Lady don Golu (Shweta Tripathi) has become more aggressive than before. She supports Guddu Pandit by becoming his right hand. On the other hand, Jaunpur's strongman Sharad Shukla (Anjum Sharma) wants to usurp the throne of Mirzapur by removing Guddu. For this, he makes the state's Chief Minister Madhuri Yadav (Isha Talwar) his partner.

Madhuri Yadav wants to eliminate the strongmen from the state, for this she uses the strongmen as her weapon. JP Yadav also enters in the middle of the season.

However, the biggest question still remains where is Kaleen Bhaiya. Kaleen Bhaiya comes out of the clutches of death in the middle of the series. Sharad Shukla plays a big role in saving his life. Now you will have to watch the series to know what role Kaleen Bhaiya will play in the story.

Before this, two seasons of the series have already been released.

Before this, two seasons of the series have already been released.

How is the acting of the star cast?
Guddu Pandit's role is quite impressive and strong this time too. Ali Fazal has once again looked great in the role of an arrogant strongman. In the first season, the innocent college student Golu, i.e. Shweta Tripathi, has now become a lady don by the third season. She shows no mercy to her enemies.

Sharad Shukla (Anjum Sharma) has more screen time in this season. In a way, he is in the second lead role. He has done a very good job. Pankaj Tripathi, who was the soul of this series, has had his role reduced considerably and he has been shown to be very weak. However, he has tried to make the most of the space he has got. It is clear from the last few episodes that the upcoming season will revolve around Kaleen Bhaiya.

The role of Kaleen Bhaiya's wife Beena Tripathi (Rasika Duggal) is also impactful. Isha Talwar in the role of CM Madhuri Yadav looks calm but smart.

Vijay Verma's role as Chote Tyagi is also fine, but not as entertaining as the second season. However, this time Vijay's character carries a mystery with him.

How is the direction?
Gurmeet Singh has directed the series. He has tried to make the story engaging, but could not leave the same impact that was seen in its previous two seasons. The role of the lead character Kaleen Bhaiya has been reduced a lot, which the audience may not like.

The audience is used to seeing a strong and fearless Kaleen Bhaiya, so seeing him helpless and powerless might make the audience unhappy. The absence of Munna i.e. Divyendu Sharma is clearly visible in this season. Some scenes of the jail have been shown unnecessarily. The series could have been trimmed a bit. Although the climax is definitely better, the ending sequence might surprise you a bit.

Final Verdict, Watch or Not?
If you have enjoyed the previous two seasons of Mirzapur, then you will definitely like this one too. However, if you expect too much, you will be disappointed. This time a different level of bloodshed has been seen, so some scenes can be disturbing. Politics, betrayal, malice, lust and humor will be seen in the series. Apart from this, there is an arrogance in all the characters, which reflects the style of eastern Uttar Pradesh very well.
