Story Line: Anurag Kashyap’s Gangs of Wassyepur is a perfect bloodbath gangster saga. Bang with the striking opening on this Friday this movie is flooded with innumerable characters, their emotions and vulnerabilities. Setting in the milieu of Wasseypur which is a province of Dhanbad district, which shifted from Bengal to Bihar and finally to Jharkhand post-independence. Starting from 1949, when coal mines represented wealth and power Shahid Khan (Jaideep Ahlawat), a ‘pehelwan’ who guards his master’s life, secretly wishes to take his place someday. Eventually, he is crushed in the power struggle by his own master Ramadhir Singh (Tigmanshu Dhulia). Khan leaves behind his son Sardar (Manoj Bajpayee) who shaves off his head, vowing not to grow his hair until he exacts revenge for his father’s death.

Thumbs Up: Spanning over two generations, Kashyap has successfully managed to add depth to the story and soul to his characters. The dialogues in local tongue are deliciously written. Matchless background score and brilliant cinematography are some of the many key elements that make Anurag Kashyap’s Gangs of Wasseypur possibly the best dark comedy in Indian cinema.

Though the movie is 5 hours long, the second part trailer has been attached at the end of the film. You come out of the theatre feeling anxious to know what’s going to happen in the second part. Music of the film is purely rustic and deserves a special mention.

Thumbs Down: This movie is only for hard core cinema lovers. Person who loves gangster saga and enjoy blood bath must watch it.

It’s a masterpiece that promises an equally good second part. Enjoy this rustic multilayered revenge saga in this weekend.
