FAQs On Sacred Games season 2

As we saw, at the end of Sacred Games season 2, there was an open-ended climax. That suggests there should be a sacred games season 3 in line.

But, the bare fact that whether Sartaj was able to defuse the bomb or not doesn't suffice up to indicating another whole season, because most of the mystery has already been revealed like famous “...lekin Trivedi bch jayega!” and many other interesting ones. So, whether there will be season 3 is a big doubt still. But we will be releasing an article soon where we will be discussing sacred games season 3.

As written in the novel, Sartaj was successful in defusing the bomb. But in the web series, it was shown almost like he defused the bomb. But if he managed to do it or not is still not clear.

Although Sacred games season 2 was even more adventurous and interesting to watch some fans seemed off because their favorite Gaitonde went to major and only downs. But still, there was a major hype around it, Netflix marketing and sacred games season 1’s international success contributed to that. So if anyone thinks that Sacred Games 2 was a flop, that one has not watched it for sure, trust me!

Sacred games are conspiracy, crime, thriller, and a mystery show. It paints the life of a crime lord in Mumbai of the 80s and 90s and his journey to save his dear city: the Mumbai; which continues even after his suicide. Slowly in the present, as a police officer investigates the case, the story of that crime lord unfolds slowly in the past. So, sacred games is a very finely attuned content that jumps from present to past and then back, and most importantly, viewers don't lose track of what happens when, so the story manages to keep the viewer's attention bound. Those Are some of the reasons why Sacred games are so popular worldwide!

Guruji sent his men to kill Subhadra and staged the murder as if it was done by Issa’s men and gaitonde was intentionally made to believe this nonsense as he was not indulging in erstwhile Hindu Muslim riots happening in Mumbai. But by seeing his love gone forever, he grew furious and went on a rampage of killing Muslims.

In sacred games season 1, it was not revealed which Trivedi Gaitonde referred to for real, so people thought that old bureaucrat was actually Trivedi. but as turns out in sacred games season 2 ,Gaitonde was referring to his first and real father.

Jojo, as a character, seemed to not care much about anything not of her interest and she was living her whole life in the guilt of cheating and in turn losing her sister; so she used to harm herself in weird ways. So there lurk her suicidal tendencies. Jojo was a sharp-minded woman, so it might not have taken much of her time to realize that this holy man “Guruji '' is using almost everyone to make his way to meet his end goals.

But, Jojo seem to have a kind of trust in Gaitonde, although she knew how much of an a**hole he is. So she could have consciously decided to not confront him directly about not respecting guruji by his words.

So, when Gaitonde asked her directly about it, she first decided to avoid this talk, but later loved to die by his most trusted hands.

Gaitonde had his father safe somewhere in the rural region, away from guruji’s approach; so that he couldn't use his father to make him do what he hated. And while referring to Trivedi, he was referring to his father.

Jamila is a pakistani runaway girl. And zoya is her new identity in Mumbai, which Jojo put forth to let her climb up in the film industry.

She is more than 40 years old in Sacred games 2.

He felt that he loved Mumbai from his heart. And when he realized this , he went straight to see guruji to make him stop the whole nonsense and horrible act of burning mumbai down to ashes and build it from scratch again. But when he saw that guruji is not seeming to be convinced, he grew angry and killed him by suffocating by his own “KaalGranth”.

Second father of Gaitonde, the salim kaka ,was a drug smuggler in mumbai. He was his first major teacher of business.

She is ex wife of inspector sartaj singh. Sartaj tried to convince her to remarry with him by telling her how lonely he feels. At the end of sacred games season 2, he tells her to leave Mumbai as he was trying to save her from a giant atom bomb explosion.

Sartaj used to indulge in work too much and was not able to give her the fair bit of attention she deserves. This broke out major arguments among them and ultimately they got separated.

At the end of sacred games season 2 , sartaj inputs 2 passcodes to deactivate the bomb and both of them were incorrect. The psychedelic drug “Guchi” kicked in by detecting stress, and he saw gaitonde sitting on the sofa in the same way as he died, but talking to him this time , all in hallucination. He opens the “KaalGranth” and puts the pattern printed on the chapter of his father , Dilbagh singh; to stop the bomb from exploding. And at that point , sacred games season 2 finished off!

Sartaj finds out that he loves his ex wife so much, and it was his own faults that led her to leave him and now he wants to make things right. Also, this whole drama staged by guruji is basically a sham and should be stopped from happening at all costs.

As mentioned in the novel, Sartaj succeeds in defusing the bomb on time. While in the show, he seemed to put the last password with quiet drama and all, suggesting that directors wanted viewers to believe that the bomb was indeed diffuse while actually not showing this happening.

sartaj ‘s paternal aunty was actually the mother of shahid khan. At the time of the division of Pakistan from India, riots broke out and Sartaj's grandfather's family decided to leave the pakistan. Somewhere in pakistan unfortunately , sartaj’s aunty got left behind and captured by pakistani muslims. So they are cousins and yes, they are hell a lot related.
