#1.

Netflix takes you on a thrilling journey with crisply told stories through workshops it conducts for the writers of their originals. A story told just the way writers, showrunners, directors want it to be told, with Netflix giving complete creative freedom, retaining the creator’s integrity for them to have the final say on how and in what way they want to tell it -- what cut of a show or movie they release on the platform.

#2. Dialogues Coming to Life: ‘Sacred Games’ is also available in surround sound creating the same kind of immersive sound field that you’d experience in a cinema hall. Catch the cracking dialogue, banter between the characters who speak like hard-core Mumbaikars, and the distinctive sounds of maximum city, in all their authentic glory. Mumbaikars will find the sounds familiar, while the rest of us have technology to thank for making that experience real. Popcorn and nachos anyone?

#3. Be the Ganesh Gaitonde (boss) of Your Own Life: With Netflix’s availability across devices, you’ll now be able to watch Sartaj Singh embark on his adventures to save the city, at YOUR convenience. So, next time you get stuck in a traffic jam or just want to cozy up with a cup of chai and pakoras this monsoon while you watch TV, ‘Sacred Games’ is your go to show, to binge uninterrupted! Just make sure you download episodes before leaving home, or stream on your mobile using data saver mode so you have enough juice for the entire series. Just try to be seated comfortably (nothing like watching it on a television), or all the drama will blow you away!

#4. Introducing Sartaj Singh in 4K: ‘Sacred Games’ is the first Indian television series to be shot on 4K. Yes, 4K! All this to make those heart-racing, jaw-clenching action-packed moments, alive on the screen. Chances are you’ll never miss a clue when the chase beings, thanks to 4K stellar screen clarity.

#5. Local Stories Going Global: What makes us more thrilled than knowing we have our first Netflix India Original? Well, the fact that it has been released in 190 countries, that too, all at once breaking all barriers of language and culture. Like a good matchmaker, the Netflix algorithm knows which members are fans of crime, action, thriller shows, and will show them Sacred Games at just the moment when they’re ready for the next binge. It means that a crime series lover in Miami can follow Radhika Apte’s Anjali Mathur at the same time as a member in Mumbai. You want to talk about making a mark in the entertainment industry? India is doing just that with ‘Sacred Games’, ladies and gentlemen.
