Mirzapur is a crime thriller series produced by Excel Entertainment. The series is based in Mirzapur, a small town in the state of Uttar Pradesh. The story reloves around Akhandanand Tripathy aka Kaleen Bhaiya (Pankaj Tripathy) who runs a million-dollar carpet exporting business and is also the Don of the city.
This is a tale of money, power, greed, loyalty, and bloodshed.
The first season had 8 episodes each around 1 hour long. The series had a strong usage of abusive words, violence, and bloodshed.
