Netflix's original series Sacred Games is based on Vikram Chandra's critically-acclaimed, bestselling novel of the same name.
It focuses on Sartaj Singh, a seasoned and cynical police officer, who gets summoned by an anonymous tip one morning. It's a voice that promises him an opportunity to capture the powerful Ganesh Gaitonde, the criminal overlord of the G-Company.

As the stakes mount and Sartaj seeks knowledge of his prey, it becomes clear that the game is bigger than the two central players. They are, in fact, a part of a much larger scenario, one that goes beyond their city.
A Bollywood film star, politicians, cultists, spies and terrorists are also involved here.

Sacred Games is directed by Vikramaditya Motwane and Anurag Kashyap.
