Mirzapur season 3 Review

Mirzapur Season 3 has unfortunately missed the mark, falling short of the high expectations set by its previous seasons. The series, once celebrated for its gripping storyline and intense character dynamics, has become a tangled web of unnecessary plotlines and new characters that dilute the original essence of the show. Read the review of Mirzapur season 3 for detailed insights.


The reign of the Tripathis in Purvanchal is over. Guddu and Golu are pitted against a new contender as they stake their claim to the throne.

What’s good about the series

The show does manage to pick up momentum occasionally, delivering engaging and intense sequences that remind viewers of its potential. Unfortunately, these moments are fleeting and not sustained long enough to maintain a consistent level of excitement. Despite its shortcomings, the series manages to deliver a strong finish. The last two episodes are particularly noteworthy, as they provide some much-needed meat to the story. The twists and turns in these final episodes demand attention and leave a lasting impression. This strong conclusion is a plus point and provides a glimmer of hope for the series.

What’s bad about the series

Screenplay: Avinash Singh Tomar’s efforts to intensify certain scenes sometimes backfire, as the exaggerated intensity can undermine the essence of the characters. His attempts to heighten the drama occasionally come off as forced, detracting from the natural flow of the story and making it harder for viewers to connect with the characters on a deeper level. The season is riddled with several sub-plots that can be quite boring and distracting. These additional storylines often feel unnecessary and dilute the main narrative. Instead of adding depth, they contribute to a sense of chaos and disjointed storytelling.

Editing: The pacing of Season 3 is another significant drawback. The series drags on so slowly that staying awake through some scenes and episodes becomes a challenge. The lack of momentum and excitement is palpable, and viewers may find themselves dozing off or losing interest altogether. The end of the season comes so abruptly that you might not even realise it has concluded. Wish the editing was a little more cohesive and crisp rather than dragging it for no good reason.

Story and script analysis

The once epic saga of Mirzapur seems to be losing its lustre with each passing season. Season 3, in particular, has struggled to live up to the high standards set by its predecessors, leaving fans disappointed and yearning for the drama and intensity that once defined the series. Few franchises manage to sustain their success across multiple seasons, and unfortunately, Mirzapur appears to be faltering. After the second season’s dip in quality, Season 3 witnessed another decline. The true essence of the show—the compelling drama and intense conflict—has been overshadowed by an overabundance of subplots and a fragmented narrative. While there are moments that partially keep you hooked, they are few and far between. Fans expecting mind-boggling twists and high-stakes drama will likely be disappointed.


Pankaj Tripathi is one of the finest actors in Bollywood. His calm and composed nature demands attention and that’s the kind of power he holds onscreen. Even though he has been seen for a limited period, Pankaj manages to prove his presence in the chaotic drama.

Ali Fazal is enjoying the success bliss after taking over the Mirzapur reigns but when it comes to performance, Ali makes a solid performance. However, he does seem to get carried away in certain scenes and gets overboard with his performance. There’s no development in Rasika Dugal‘s character. We yet again see her someone a cunning mind and lustful woman but she doesn’t seem to use her mind for her survival.

Shweta Tripathi as Gajgamini aka Golu is completely drenched in revenge but Shweta needs to have a strong hold on her emotions. Vijay Varma is underwhelming with his performance. Isha Talwar tries hard to pull off a serious character but does not come out effectively.


Overall, Mirzapur Season 3 fails to capture the thrilling essence of its predecessors. The chaotic plotlines, slow pacing, and the introduction of too many new characters make it a disappointing watch. It is so slow and dragged that you might doze off between scenes or episodes. You won’t even realise when it ended. Season 3 ends on a note that sets the stage for a potential fourth season. For those who found this season underwhelming, the prospect of another instalment might be more daunting than exciting. Here’s hoping the makers take note of these issues and bring back the intensity and focus that made the earlier seasons a hit. Hope this review of Mirzapur 3 cleared your mind.
