Sacred Games poster 

Review of "Sacred Games" 7/8/18 by Suzanne
airs now on Netflix

If you don't mind watching sub-titles, this is an intriguing Indian crime show about an honest cop, Inspector Sartaj Singh, working in a corrupt Mumbia police department, who gets a phone call one night from a gangster, who tells him all about his life and warns him that he has 25 days to save the city.

Saif Ali Khan does a great job as Singh, and Nawazuddin Siddiqui is the criminal, Ganesh. It's worth watching. There is a lot of action and intrigue.
