Ashish Vidyarthi and Mahie Gill are the latest additions to the cast of the crime drama.
Raktanchal (Season 2) trailer: Nikitin Dheer, Kranti Prakash Jha battle it out again
Mumbai - 02 Feb 2022 1:34 IST
The first season of MX Player’s Hindi web-series Raktanchal saw a battle between two heavyweight gangsters from Uttar Pradesh – Waseem Khan [Nikitin Dheer] and Vijay Singh [Kranti Prakash Jha]. The season ends with Singh’s character, ostensibly, being shot dead.
Though Khan is convinced that his rival is no more, Singh is very much alive and kicking and spoiling for a fight.
This time the stakes are high for the bloodthirsty foes as two ambitious newcomers, a senior politician (Ashish Vidyarthi) and a young politician (Mahie Gill), also have their eyes on the Uttar Pradesh chief minister's chair.
There has been a spate of films and shows that revolve around the ruthless underworld of the Hindi heartland. MX Player itself released the second season of another crime drama Bhaukaal which dealt with the subject. In other words, scenes of gunshots and bloodshed peppered with heroic dialogues have become somewhat repetitive. This is exactly what we find in the trailer of Raktanchan (Season 2).
Vidyarthi and Gill’s casting provides freshness and they appear promising.
Directed by Ritam Srivastav, Raktanchal (Season 2) will be released on MX Player on 11 February.
Check out the trailer and let us know if you are keen on watching the show.
