Subject: Gangs of Wasseypur
Gangs of Wasseypur is the latest entertainer by Anurag Kashyap. It's also a landmark movie for Manoj Bajpayee as he has been out of limelight for enough long now. This movie is not very different from the 'unconventional' movies previously made by the same director. If you want to clap and laugh on common swear words, if you like folk music, then, this movie is for you. But as secret of contentment is low expectations bar, it would be great if unlike me you go to theatre with an open mind. I had set expectations very high and that's why this film has disappointed me. Even my friend who accompanied me to the picture hall had similar opinions. Both of us felt that the movie was literally 'dragged' after interval, for, at least 40 minutes, mayhaps because they wanted to make a sequel--but why? A sequel should be made only when what you're willing to tell cannot be 'contained' inside the limited space/time you have. Making a sequel, just for the sake of making a sequel is “plain horseshit.”

Manoj Bajpayee's performance is good. I don't remember having seen him in any movie after Ram Gopal Verma's Road. He has done his part well in this movie, but others have not been up to the mark. Music in this movie, as in all other Anurag Kashyap movies, is indeed a strong support. He has brilliantly used main-stream cine songs with folk songs using a lot of instrumentals.

Dramatically enough, Sardar Khan(Manoj Bajpayee) and his wives don't seem to age at all in this movie. Just observe them at the time of Sardar Khan's son's marriage ceremony. Sardar Khan's first wife and his daughter-in-law seem to belong to the same age-bracket, which is ludicrous and technically "poor" direction. Hiccups and loopholes like these are what hinder Anurag's becoming a perfectionist.

It's definitely not a movie to be watched with your family members, because it's gory, bloody and violent with swear words spread all along the plot.
