Story of season 1.

The story of season 1 is divided into 2 major narratives, first is from the days of the past specifically the early 80s Bokaro, Jharkhand. And it lets us witness a beautiful and sweet love story of Manu and Ranjan, who are our leads in this part of the story. We see how their love begins and then develops into a beautiful thing. Until it is shattered by the anti-Sikh riots that engulfed many major parts of India in the wake of the assassination of then pm Smt. Indira Gandhi Ji by her Sikh bodyguards.

The other part of the story of Grahan is also related to the same tragic event in actual Indian history. Here the leading lady is a young and dedicated IPS officer SP Amrita Singh, who is a part of a special investigation team tasked with finding out the real culprits behind those riots in 84’ in Bokaro. And in that very investigation, she begins to find out astounding facts which leave her baffled too. But she perseveres and keeps going strongly towards her objective of bringing the wrongful people to their justice.

Grahan season 2 

The expectations of a season 2 were started soon before the Grahan release date was even a week or two old. although, there were people that differed from the general positive opinion of the viewers too. The biggest reason for the success of the show was found to be the cast of Grahan, its cinematography and the era-appropriate design of the sets in the show.

Grahan release date for season 2

Even though there is ample possibility that it is going to be renewed, but still there isn’t any official announcement regarding the release of Grahan season 2. But we are hopeful that there will be some news or a teaser about it in the coming days. As the end of season 1 was incomplete and there are still big questions in the minds of the watchers that remain unanswered.

Grahan season 2 cast 

The series gained its current acclaim due to multiple reasons including a sincere and ovation worthy performance of its cast. It had a decent balance of both the wise and seasoned actors like Pawan Malhotra and fresh and young talents like Wamiqa Gabbi and Zoya Hussain. So the roster may be the same as Grahan 2021 cast.


Based on a book that is derived from a true and utterly tragic event in Indian history, this web show is an emotional package to put it in the fewest of words. You can expect genuine moments of anguish and love throughout the series and at the end of the day, it is a neatly presented package and is a show worthy of your interest.
