The wait for Gangs of Wasseypur is finally over. The movie which was in news for quiet a while has finally released. But did it live upto the expectations, the answer is it did. Without any doubt one of the best movies coming out of indian cinema. And the maverick Anurag Kashyap certainly delivers what he speaks.
At the heart of it GOW is a revenge saga set at the back drop of a place called Wasseypur and Dhanbad. Starting from the pre indepence era to around the 90s.
The aptly shown timelines along with the rural settings makes the movie an eye catching experience. Offcourse it is mixed with some gore and blood. The expletives are used at regular intervals which actually goes well with the narrative of the movie. The casting is bang on which goes on to prove that there is no dearth of acting prowess in India. Be it Jaideep Ahlawat, Tigmanshu Dhulia, Piyush Mishra, Jameel Khan, Richa Chadda, Nawazzuddin Siddiquior Reema Sen, just form an enviable line up. But its Manoj Bajpai who hits you with a bang with his range in the performance. After few moments in the movie he makes you believe that he is Sardar Khan.
Anurag Kashyap deserves kudos for his choice of subject and stylised narrative. The only time he falters is in the second half when things seems to be going nowhere. But thats a sign of not bowing down under market pressure and making what you believe in.
Sneha Khanwilkar , well this girls contribution to the movie is immense. The music of the movie should be considered as one of the characters of the movie. I enjoyed the song "Womaniya" the most.
At the end of the day it is was time well spent watching some serious talents providing wholesome entertainment. Definitely would be watching it again.
P.S- Don's miss the song "Kasam Paida Karne Wale Ki"
