Netflix has just made a major announcement that Saif Ali Khan starrer ‘Sacred Games’ will premiere on 6 July 2018. Shooting of the show is already finished and post production is being worked upon. It is in collaboration with Phantom films and Vikram Aditya Motwane with Anurag Kashyap are the directors. Saif played the role of a police officer by the name of Sartaj Singh while Nawaz is an antagonist in the series. Radhika Apte will also play a very important role in it while rest of the star cast is yet to be seen.
It will be first home grown Netflix series of India with many more in production. It is a good budget production and Netflix might be the perfect partner because when a content is being published on the net, director does not have to be scared of the Friday mafia. There are many things one has to ingrain in a film because they want the audience in cinemas from the houses and no one would come if they are not excited. To watch content on web does not really take much from an audience hence both the sides can be inventive.
Experimentation is much more on the web content because there is no amount of investment that needs to come back from it. Once a series is on web people can watch it 20 years from now and makers will still be benefited unlike the films where one has a week at most to get back the maximum investment. Artist can work really freely for Netflix or any other streaming original because they would not have to get up in the morning and be completely terrorized about the number of people who are going to watch the content. Science of film recovery is a lot more tricky than the world wide web.
