Jamtara season 2 — out Friday on Netflix — ups the ante with major phishing scams as our trio of protagonists find themselves drawn into a political conflict. With local elections fast approaching, returning director Soumendra Padhi weaves a detailed account of cyber crime operations in Jharkhand through endless hours of research. The new season is expected to have a character-driven approach where the morals and intentions of our heroes will be put to the test. One such candidate is Gudiya (Monika Panwar), who decides to face the corrupt politician Brajesh Bhaan (Amit Sial) for the ultimate control of the region.
In an interview, Padhi spoke about the mentality of such fraudsters and the reasoning behind their endless obsession. “Our research suggested that in the world of fraudsters, after making so much money, all they crave is more power,” he says. And since money does not directly translate into authority – for the oppressed – the only way to ensure it is through a democratic process. Jamtara: Sabka Number Ayega’s sophomore run deals with the said idea, albeit Gudiya and her companions have a troubled history with Bhaan, creating a larger ulterior motive. With their lives at stake, Jamtara season 2 serves as a cautionary tale as each favorable move brings the trio an inch closer to death at the hands of the rival goons.
While Jamtara season 1 served as an introduction to the world of fraud, this new chapter delves deeper into the process behind it. To turn the tide of the election, cousins Sunny (Sparsh Shrivastav) and Rocky (Anshumaan Pushkar) are unable to collect enough OTPs through phishing and hence conjure up a new set of scams without the knowledge of the police and Bhaan. “You will see a lot of new scams which have been explored deeply – including a large number of SIM cards, source of transactions, etc.,” Padhi said in an interview.

Jamtara season 2 cast
After being shot from behind under Jamtara’s season 1 finale, Sunny is now confined to a hospital bed. Played by Shrivastav (Collar Bomb), the ambitious boy is still up to no good as he tries to lure school-going children into the new scam operation. As someone who is shown to be afraid of arguments, he remains ever so cautious and even tucks a gun under his pillow when Bhaan’s men come to ambush him. Ironic, considering he sees himself as this quintessential Bollywood hero who can never be put down.
Panwar (Super 30) reprises her role as Gudiya, who leads the charge against Bhaan’s election campaign. For her, this is a personal vendetta – to have her dreams crushed and become the victim of attempted rape at the hands of the corrupt politician. Last time, Gudiya was stuck in a pickle, carrying a bag full of cash and mourning the sign of an incapacitated Sunny. Jamtara season 2 appears to jump forward in time, forcing her to rebuild her reputation in the small town and take control.

For some unspecified reason, the politician Bhaan – played by Sial (Mirzapur) — has managed to free himself from the clutches of the municipal council and now represents himself in the elections. In addition to making false promises and paying off citizens, his campaign now involves shaking Gudiya, who refused to sleep with him earlier. He still holds a grudge against the young con couple and constantly watches Sunny’s movements, knowing that the kid always has a plan up his sleeves. “This man’s self-obsession and sociopathic attitude prove what a dull individual he is,” Sial noted in an interview. “He has a lot of free time on his hands. Since he has nothing else to do, he chooses on a whim to enter the fraud business.”
Seema Pahwa (Ramprasad Ki Tehrvi) is the newest entry to Jamtara Season 2 lineup. Her character Ganga Devi is a 50-year-old, unmarried politician from Deoghar who has just been released from jail for a coal mining scam. Seeing the sad state her beloved city is in and Bhaan’s newfound power, she decides to work with Gudiya and overthrow his position. Both Ganga and Brajesh have untamed ambitions and it is impossible for two such individuals to coexist in the same city. TLDR: she serves as Bhaan’s ego check.
Amid the election drama, Rocky – played by Pushkar (Grahan) – maintains a neutral position and acts as a bridge/messenger for both sides. As someone who started the phishing business in Jamtara, along with his cousin Sunny, he teams up again, places orders for thousands of new SIM cards and distributes them among his wave of fraudsters. “Sparsh and I are like brothers, both on and off screen. Off screen there is also mutual admiration and respect. On screen, it’s the complete opposite. Yes, we are brothers, but mutual respect and admiration can go to hell,” Pushkar said in an interview about his character’s chemistry.
Next is Rinku Mondal, a 23-year-old young, dreamy man who once left the Jamtara lands. Played by Ravi Chahar, the Noida pan shop owner returns to his hometown and realizes that it is the best place for him to run scam operations – unlike the city. After all, a big fish in a small pond is better than a small fish in the sea. An expert at impersonating a woman – right down to his voice – the clever con man crosses paths with Bhaan, who gives him an assignment to kill. Despite being somewhat religious, his morality depends entirely on whether an evil act serves as a necessary means of survival.
Rounding out the cast are cops Aksha Pardasany (Kathmandu Connection) as SP Dolly Sahu and Dibyendu Bhattacharya (Rocket Boys) as Inspector Biswa Paathak. Both the cops are in serious trouble this time as they earlier carried out a rogue operation to hunt down Bhaan and bring down his empire. Not to mention, Sahu was transferred to another jurisdiction.
Jamtara synopsis of season 2
Here is the official synopsis for Jamtara season 2 from Netflix:

Jamtara Season 2 trailer
On August 24, Netflix dropped another teaser Jamtara season 2, to announce the release date. The 30-second clip was short on details and showed Shrivastav Sunny impersonating a fake voice in an attempt to dupe countless citizens, from teachers, politicians and school-going children. Some emphasis was placed on the banyan tree, which had several telephones hanging from strings. Speaking to MoneyControl, Director Padhi revealed that such trees do indeed exist in Jamtara. “After making a certain number of calls, people go and tie their mobiles so that the number cannot be traced because it can also be traced through the IMEI number in your phone,” he said.
The studio then released another trailer Jamtara 2 on September 1 detailing the election process, the celebrations and the risks involved for our fraud trio. Bhaan’s goons take things a bit too far, causing a shootout during Gudiya’s speech that culminates in turf wars between the parties. That Jamtara the season 2 trailer also highlighted Devi’s preference for Gudiya’s campaign and gave her crucial life advice: “To rise in politics, we must leave our loved ones behind.”
