Story Line: Having wooed audiences with its rustic story, Gangs of Wasseypur part 2 got a striking opening on Wednesday. Riding high on the success of Wasseypur 1, Anurag Kashyap seemed to look eager to cash on its achievement and therefore released the film on Wednesday instead of Friday. GOW 2 doubles the dollops of gore and violence.
Gangs of Wasseypur 2 now has the next generation of Khans taking over from Sardar in their fight to destroy Ramadhir. Who will be the last man standing? Ramadhir vs Khans! This is what part 2 revolves around. Danish (Vineet Singh, bright performance) avenges his father's death, to an extent, before he is gunned down. Faizal (Nawazuddin Siddiqui) is taunted by his mother for being drowned in drugs and not having strength enough to pick up the gun. This encourages the dopehead into action. Faizal is now the next terror name in Wasseypur. He concludes the gang bang saga in a bloody way. He also continues his romance with Mohsina (Huma Qureshi) which provide the lighter moments, apart from his 14-year-old brother who stammers his way into terrorizing his neighbourhood in his own schoolboy way. Adding spice to the proceedings is Sardar's son from his second marriage 'Definite' who too wants to be kingpin.
Anurag Kahsyap adds zing to the character’s with unique names like definite, perpendicular and tangent.
Thumbs Up: Question why GOW 2 is worth watch? Because of the performance of its characters. Nawazuddin Siddiqui did justice to his role. He blazes the screen with his magnificent performance. Huma Qureshi, with her gaudy clothes, designer sun-glasses and unusual attractiveness is the hottest cheez in Wasseypur. She beautifully lends support as a powerful man's 'prouder' better-half, even in his worst crimes. Richa Chaddha holds forth in the sequel too, strong and poised, she's fab. Specially, Sneha Khanwalkar’s rooted rustic, folk and experimental background score that acts like an inseparable character of the film. Rajiv Rai’s exceptional cinematography too wins your heart easily.
Thumbs Down: Gangs of Wasseypur part 2 is murky but it somehow fails to ignite the previous magic. Though, You hardly find any loopholes in this sequel. Don’t get too late, book your ticket right now to watch bloody-bravado conclusion of this gang bang saga.
