The 9-part series, releasing on Friday 16th November, is produced by Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani who join once again to bring us another game-changing series – this time with a brand new gangster drama.
The series stars Pankaj Tripathi, Ali Faizal, Vikrant Massey, Shweta Tripathi and Divyendu Sharma in avatars like never before. Not only does the trailer boast a powerful star-studded cast, but also weaves a tale into the world’s mistrust and uncertainties.
Here are the five best scenes from the trailer which are sure to leave you craving Amazon Prime’s latest binge-worthy series.

The sequence sets the tone for the brutal journey you’re about to witness – filled with an array of violence, power and hostility, all gripping us with every development.
2. The successive scenes will take you through the family narrative of the monarchs of the Mirzapur- the Tripathi’s introducing Divyendu Sharma playing the fearless Munna Tripathi.
3. Not just the Tripathis, the trailer also acquaints us with the Pandit brothers- Guddu and Bablu. The two brothers command this playoff in a manner you wouldn’t have ever thought of. In a jungle full of treacherous gangsters, Ali Faizal and Vikrant Massey will be seen justifying their on-screen avatars in a full swing.

The strong and badass female characters of Mirzapur will be sure to blow your mind as they prove that the gangland culture in Uttar Pradesh is not exclusive to the hard, scarred faces of the men. Not just beautiful faces but these women are quite capable of firing guns in full confidence if needed.
