Gangs Of Wasseypur (Hindi)
Release Date:June 22, 2012
Towards the end of colonial India, Shahid Khan loots the British trains, impersonating the legendary Sultana Daku. Now outcast, Shahid becomes a worker at Ramadhir Singh’s colliery, only to spur a revenge battle that passes on to generations. At the turn of the decade, Shahid’s son, the philandering Sardar Khan vows to get his father’s honor back, becoming the most feared man of Wasseypur. In contemporary times, the weed addicted grandson, Faizal Khan, wakes up to this vengeance that his family has inherited.
Staying true to its real life influences, the film explores this revenge saga through the socio-political dynamic in erstwhile Bihar (North India), in the coal and scrap trade mafia of Wasseypur, through the imprudence of a place obsessed with mainstream 'Bollywood' cinema.
"Don't tell me the moon is shining, show me the glint of light on the broken glass."
Gangs of Wasseypur seems to be a perfect macro example for this quote by Anton Chekhov. You are not told that the following scene is thrilling or comic or masala but you are expected to notice it. If you fail there, probably you will end up disliking this masterful saga. This is how the core of this movie is build with it's own kind of storytelling that very few filmmakers of this age succeeds in.
The keen must watch on screen; else DVD.
You'll watch a great film unfold that is engaging despite being slow and violent. Yet, it is quite literally incomplete. Powerful performances and rustic visuals and sounds make the film worth a watch just by themselves.
Word of mouth Gangs of Wasseypur is Anurags tribute to the American gangster movies and Godfather and also his answer to the masala films of our times.Its an item film.
Rating 3.5 (Good)
Ticket Meter Worth 250 bucks
P.S. pls stay right till the end to watch the trailer of GOW2.
The film is engrossing; you don’t move out of your seat fearing a lost nuance. It has all the qualities which make up a great film – a fantastic storyline and screenplay, a talented cast, adept characterization, and an attention to detail from a director who knows what he is doing.This film along with Part 2 are game changers; in the Hindi film industry they are a landmark of sorts, a reminder of what films can be if only the makers know their craft. One of the best films of recent years, this is an absolute must-see.
