Gangs of Wasseypur2013

  • 4.2
Director/writer/producer Anurag Kashyap's ambitious and extraordinary blood-and-bullets fueled crime saga that charts seventy years in the lives, and spectacular deaths, of two mafia-like families fighting for control of the coal-mining town of Wasseypur, India. Inspired by the real-life exploits of local gangs and beginning with the bandit-like career of Shahid Khan in the 1940s, the film follows the ruthless rise of his son Sardar (a brilliant Manoj Bajpayee) and his offspring, the surreally-named Danish, Perpendicular and Definitive Khans and their numerous wives and girlfriends. GANGS OF WASSEYPUR mirrors the tumultuous and explosive growth of modern India with ferocious cinematic intensity. As with Al Pacino's Michael Corleone in THE GODFATHER, it's the least likely of Sardar's children, the perpetually stoned Faizal, who rises to the top ranks of the Khan crime family, vowing brutal revenge on their longtime nemesis, the wily and seemingly unstoppable Ramadhir Singh. Composer Sneha Khanwalkar's stunning soundtrack ranks with legends like R.D. Burman, but don't expect Bollywood-style dance numbers: this is a movie that up-ends every expectation of what great Indian cinema should look (and sound) like.

how were u able to watch the film

The movie has all the ingredients of the Crime Drama-strong, intergenerational families, wicked violence, vengeance served personally and cartoonist humor. The Gangs of Wasseypur is worth the time to watch again. Tony

couldn't watch the movie as trailer plays whenever i play the movie

This might have been good, if subtitles were readable. It ha the dash of an epic, though silly

Grim. Hard to follow at times.
