A couple of years ago we brought you news (read that here) that Netflix was adapting Vikram Chandra’s Mumbai-set novel, Sacred Games.
Now we not only have a trailer but also a transmission date… and it’s soon!
Set in Mumbai, Sacred Games delves into the city’s intricate web of organised crime, corruption, politics and espionage that lie beneath India’s economic renaissance. It is an epic masterwork of exceptional richness and power that interweaves the lives of the privileged, the famous, the wretched and the bloodthirsty.
It features Sartaj, the only Sikh inspector in the whole of Mumbai, who’s used to being identified by his turban, beard and the sharp cut of his trousers. But ‘the silky Sikh’ is now past 40, his marriage is over and his career prospects are on the slide. When Sartaj gets an anonymous tip-off as to the secret hideout of the legendary boss of the G-company, he’s determined that he’ll be the one to collect the prize…
Now for the trailer:
Sacred Games: Netflix, from Friday 6th July
