What's New on TV

'Sacred Games'

This July, international streaming service Netflix dropped its first Indian original series, Sacred Games, the Mumbai mob story based on the acclaimed book by Vikram Chandra. For those who haven't sampled the impressive depth on Netflix's international TV series bench, the eight-part first season provides the kind of intriguing thrills found in the best of those offerings — a worldly setting that depicts something familiar but with local unique twists.  Sacred Games co-directors Anurag Kashyap and Vikramaditya Motwane take every opportunity to use Mumbai (called Bombay in the show) as a functional, important character in the story, as is the case with New York or any other distinct locales in American series.
