Gangs of Wasseypur Movie Review


Ratings:3.5/5 Reviewer:Rajeev Masand Site:IBNLive
On the surface, Gangs of Wasseypur is a revenge saga, a tableau of vengeance between generations of gangsters. Scratch that surface and you’ll discover more than just a grim portrait. Director Anurag Kashyap decides to tell this story his way, infusing it with moments of sly wit that give the blood-soaked drama irresistible color.Bolstered by its riveting performances and its thrilling plot dynamics, this is a gripping film that seizes your full attention. I’m going with three-and-a-half out of five for Anurag Kashyap’s Gangs of Wasseypur. Despite its occasionally indulgent narrative, this bullet-ridden saga is worthy of a repeat viewing, if only to catch all its nuances. Don’t miss it.

Ratings:3.5/5 Reviewer:Taran Adarsh Site:Bollywood Hungama
On the whole, GANGS OF WASSEYPUR symbolizes the fearless new Indian cinema that shatters the clichés and conventional formulas, something which Anurag Kashyap has come to be acknowledged for. It has all the trappings of an entertainer, but with a difference. The film prides itself with substance that connects with enthusiasts of new-age cinema. But, I wish to restate, one needs to have a really strong belly to soak up to a film like GANGS OF WASSEYPUR. Also, this striking movie-watching experience comes with a colossal length and duration. The reactions, therefore, would be in extremes. GANGS OF WASSEYPUR is for that segment of spectators who seek pleasure in watching forceful, hard-hitting and gritty movies.

Ratings:3.5/5 Reviewer:Madureeta Mukerjee Site:Times of india
Director Anurag Kashyap, in his trademark style of story- telling - realistic, with strong characters, over-the-top sequences, and unadulterated local flavour (crude maa-behen gaalis galore), gruesome bloody violence and raw humour - interestingly spins this twisted tale. This first of a two-part film, is ambitious indeed; showing promise of brilliance in parts, but not bullet-proof to flaws.But beware; GOW is not for the weak-hearted. So, hold on to your guns, gamchas and 'womaniyas'.Tip off: Brace yourself for the crudest gaalis, blood-baths and gory visuals of hanging carcasses.

Ratings:2.5/5 Reviewer:Raja Sen Site:Rediff
And the yawns are the primary issue with Anurag Kashyap's Gangs Of Wasseypur, an impressively ambitious -- and excellently shot -- collection of memorable characters and entertaining scenes, set to a killer soundtrack. The film never recovers from the unforgivably tedious first half-hour, and despite many laudable moments and nifty touches, never quite engages.Yet it is the excess that suffocates all the magic, originality dying out for lack of room to breathe. Kashyap gets flavour, setting and character right, but the lack of economy cripples the film. There is a lot of gunfire, but like the fine actors populating its sets, Wasseypur fires too many blanks.

Kashyap's material is strong, but there's just too much of it. There is so much plot squeezed into the two-hour-forty-five-minute running time that your head swims. We hardly ever stay with a character long enough to get emotionally invested, and a voice-over clumsily interrupts the story to connect the dots.Gangs of Wasseypur is by turns absorbing and frustrating. Watching it feels like gorging on too much good food, leaving you feeling more exhausted than satiated. But there is enough in the sound and fury to enjoy.

Ratings:3.5/5 Reviewer:Saibal Chatterjee Site:NDTV
Rollicking and riotous aren’t adjectives one normally associates with a gangster film. But that is precisely what Anurag Kashyap’s Gangs of Wasseypur is. The smartly filmed vendetta saga tosses and turns convulsively from one shootout to another as a bunch of amoral human bloodhounds sniff around for their next kill in a volatile, lawless landscape.Gangs of Wasseypur is a full-on Bollywood film without quite being one. Loaded with action, romance and music and doffs of the hat to old-school masala, this effervescent blazing-guns opera is ingeniously orchestrated in a way that lends it the flounce and flair of an artful musical romp.It delivers shock and delight in equal measure as it portrays the often pointless spiral of violence, which is presented matter-of-factly as an inevitable legacy of the area’s benighted history. It may not for the faint-hearted and the prissy. Gangs of Wasseypur is a heavyweight knockout punch. You’re down for the count!

Gangs of Wasseypur I, little do we realise we are going to get sucked into a vortex of heady violence, twisted fates and tales of vengeance. Written by Zeishan Quadri, Akhilesh, Sachin Ladia and Kashyap, GOW I runs for over two hours. Cuss words and smart repartee are commonplace, with the women being at the centre of most comedic encounters of the men. The sexual tension doubles up as comic relief in the fast-paced thriller. a to-be-continued finale, can leave you exhausted and confused.Here’s a film that demands 100% attention and it won’t stop till it has it.

Bihar and the states that have sprouted from within it make for a brilliant canvas for cinema. The language, the peculiar and untranslatable expletives and the misplaced sense of power allows for behavior that would raise eyebrows in polite society. ‘Gangs of Wasseypur’ manages to use this to their advantage to terrorize, titillate and create cinematic icons who will dictate how any actor would approach an anti-hero character in the future. And it manages all this based on a simple philosophy: Ain’t no sunshine when… you’re on the wrong side of a loaded gun.

Ratings:3/5 Reviewer:Martin D Souza Site:Glamsham
While the beginning and end and most of everything in between is gripping, Kashyap goes overboard in throwing in to many elements which unnecessary lengthen the film, taking away the 'impact' he would have so desired. For one, the scene where Sardar's youngest son is romancing a girl and also the scene in a theatre are unnecessary intrusions to the crisp narrative. Considering it's a complex film, handling the moods of his different characters would have taken a lot from Kashyap. He gives a 'close to reality' dose of cinema without taking the crude layer off. GANGS OF WASSEYPUR is to be continued...

  22. He is the original Mastermind behind Satya(Though RVG failed to interupt Anurag's Work Resulting a Great Sucess to Movie) and now GOW is another piece of his Great Talent.

    Ever since i first saw DevD and then rest of his film I have become his fan .Until the people like me are there, no one's going to fcuk his movie or the movie's critic... (kiss anurag's ass for his film are recognished in International Countries).

  23. agar anurag kashyad thoda paisa khilaana seekh jaaye to movie chalegi,

    ab akshay ko delho, uski movie acchi hoti thi tab bhi nahin chalti thi specially chandni chowk to china, rowdy rathore jaise 2 kaudi ki movie aaj 100 crore ka business crosss kar di, paisa phek tamasa dekh

  29. there are only two best directors in the world as of now..
    Christopher Nolan in the west & Anurag Kashyap in the east. frankly saying a couple of critics aren't worth to be..No hard feelings..you guys are doing crap job nd have been stinking of late.
    you just don't rate the movie whole heartedly bcoz they don't have a eye catching star cast..you guys suck..really suck..wipe ur dumb ass nd get to some other profession which you are capable of.
