Hello Readers! Welcome to Humor Nation. Sacred Games is the first Indian series on Netflix which is directed by Anurag Kashyap and Vikramaditya Motwane. This web series created a history with its unique and bold content and became very successful, but did you ever imagine what could be the meaning behind every title of each episode. If no, then lets know about it in brief.
So let’s take a look at every hidden meaning behind each title of Sacred Games episode
Ashwathama was the son of Dronacharya and a fearless warrior who fought from Kauravas side in Mahabharata. He was born in a brahmin family and his childhood seemed full of struggle, even affording food was also a tough task for them.
Same case lies in Gaitonde’s family, he also belonged to a brahmin family and affording food was also a big task for them. Gaitonde thought he was above god and even god cannot touch him because he was immortal like Ashwathama. This idea had been put into his head by Salim kaka ( his second father ).
Halahala was a poison that was produced during Amrit Manthan. During Amrit Manthan a number of things were released which included Halahal ( the poison ), that poison was consumed by Lord Shiva to protect the Devas and universe. When Parvati came to know about this, she grabbed Shiva’s throat to prevent the poison from entering the body, due to this his throat turned blue and from then he was called Neelakantha.
Halahala here is the 25 day save Mumbai mission and Sartaj is compared to Lord Shiva( who consumed poison) and Sartaj is the one who discovered Gaitonde’s place to hide and took full responsibility of the case even when he got suspended by the police department and gives his best to solve the case and save Mumbai within 25 days.
3. Atapi Vatapi
Atapi and Vatapi were two demon brothers, Atapi used to call travelers into his house and Vatapi used to turn himself into a goat and feed himself to the travelers. When the travelers left the house Vatapi used to come back into his usual form and come out of the traveler’s stomach and killing them eventually.
This story is portrayed by Guruji in the episode and maybe he is only playing the role of the demon brothers or else Badriya brothers and Bunty can be the demon brothers.
Brahmahatya means killing a Brahmin, but it also means killing humans which doesn’t include only Hindus. Due to politics, Gaitonde decides to kill Muslims which is referred to as Brahmahatya in this episode, he did this to take revenge from Isa and his army of men. But in return Kukoo dies in and Gaitonde becomes sad as he had bought Rolls Royce for her.
