Film Review – Gangs Of Wasseypur

At its core, Gangs Of Wasseypur is a revenge saga. And that’s as much of the story you’ll get from this movie review, because the film is so much more. Set in Bihar, Gangs Of Wasseypur takes you through coal mines to families of the man who refuses to let his hair grow out till he has avenged his father’s killing. The man, his women, his children, his enemy, his opponents and his comrades… they’re all here in this three-hour masterpiece. Anurag Kashyap takes his time to tell the story, and what a storyteller he is! You’re in Wasseypur, at the heart of Dhanbad, for so long that you’re way too familiar with the place and don’t want to leave when the movie’s over. It’s not over anyway – the second part of Gangs Of Wasseypur will hit theaters only in August, and it’s unfair to be kept waiting that long. The good news is you can watch GoW every week till then, with all it nods to Hindi cinema, and the nikaahs, and the local dialect, the rustic charm, the masterly performances, and all the dry humor. I want to go right back in and watch it… five more times.
