Parampara Season 2

Only few show creators take the effort to understand the strengths and the shortcomings of the first season of a web series before they release the second instalment. Parampara, bankrolled by Arka Mediaworks, was certainly one among them. Streaming on Disney+ Hotstar, the second season of the Telugu show bettered its predecessor by all means - the riveting setup, the racy editing and writing made all the difference.

Starring Naveen Chandra, Jagapathi Babu, Sarathkumar, Ishaan, Naina Ganguly, Aamani and Aakanksha Singh in key roles, Parampara Season 2 opened to critical acclaim and good feedback from netizens. The results are now showing in terms of its viewership too - reports confirm that the show has clocked 250 million streaming minutes on the platform. This is the first of its kind record for a Telugu show on Hotstar.

For the uninitiated, the show revolves around the struggle for power among three generations in a political family based in Vizag. While Murali Mohan plays the patriarch of the family, Sarathkumar and Jagapathi Babu are cast as his on-screen sons. Naveen Chandra and Ishaan essay the roles of youngsters belonging to the third generation of the family.

The second season, in particular, revolves around Gopi (Naveen), who, despite being arrested for an attempt-to-murder charge, is committed to restoring the authority of his father Mohan (Jagapathi Babu) in the public. Will Suresh put a check on Gopi's ambitions? Watch out to know more. Spanning across three hours, divided into five episodes, the show is helmed by Krishna Vijay and Vishwanath Arigela.

Shobu Yarlagadda and Prasad Devineni have produced the show. It’s likely that Parampara will be renewed for another season. The ensemble cast also comprises Kasthuri, Jogi Brothers, Ravi Varma, Divi Vadthya, Teja Kakumanu and others. Naveen Chandra will have another release on the platform shortly, a thriller that also stars Roja fame Madhoo.
