Although the kind of plot Sacred Games has, it is likely to cater to a particular set of audience, strong word of mouth has been making others curious about the show as well.

Most of the viewers of the show have declared it to be a must watch series. The directors are also being highly praised for their brilliance. "#SacredGames has all the quintessential things- drugs, sex, violence, glamour and seediness- to illuminate it. It is a brilliantly told tale by Anurag Kashyap and Vikramaditya Motwane, never lacking in action and drama. It is a must watch! [sic]," one person tweeted.

"You'll watch Sacred Games (2018) sooner or later. Undoubtedly the finest 'desi' thing out there on Netflix. Brilliant adaptation. Strong performances. Unabashed dialogues that'll make you think. Not a boring moment in any of the 8 episodes. The only downside was the low volume [sic]," another viewer tweeted.

"What a fantastic work in S01 by all the actors in #SacredGames .. I guess this is the rise of bollywood.. Moving to @NetflixIndia and doing a great season.. Perfect direction by #AnuragKashyap .. MUST WATCH.. [sic]" said a viewer.
