Gangs of Wasseypur-2 Movie Review Top Critics


Ratings:3/5 Reviewer:Rajeev Masand Site:CNN IBN
If Wasseypur II has one fatal flaw, it’s the indulgence of its director, so in love with his baby that he doesn’t stop introducing pointless subplots and characters until the very end. Where the earlier film benefitted from the delicious machinations of its players and an overall sense of intrigue, the sequel never goes beyond a typical vendetta story.I’m going with a generous three out of five for Anurag Kashyap’s Gangs of Wasseypur II. Overlong and tiring, this film is saved by memorable characters and the fine actors who bring them to life.

Ratings:4/5 Reviewer:Taran Adarsh Site:Bollywood Hungama
The moment has arrived for the subsequent chapter of GANGS OF WASSEYPUR to unfurl and as Anurag Kashyap would have it, this one is more gripping of the two. While the former fraction saw Manoj Bajpayee and Tigmanshu Dhulia's characters locking horns, the succeeding portion sees their sons cart frontward the resentment. GANGS OF WASSEYPUR 2 is attention-grabbing, spellbinding and compelling than the initial part. Along with vibrant characters, Anurag amalgamates humor skillfully in the sequence of events .GANGS OF WASSEYPUR 2 has some genuinely unusual flashes which preoccupy you even after the show has wrapped up. The fact that you carry the film back home, the fact that the characters perturb you and so does the finale only goes to demonstrate that the film has worked for you. On the whole, GANGS OF WASSEYPUR 2 is an Anurag Kashyap show all through and without an iota of doubt, can easily be listed as one amongst his paramount works. An engaging movie with several bravura moments. Watch it for its absolute cinematic brilliancy!

Ratings:4/5 Reviewer:Madhureeta Mukherjee Site:Times of India
Director, Anurag Kashyap's culmination to this gang-saga is as bloody as the first (if not more); yet it's an easier watch. The story is astutely interspersed with bursts of music (Bihari folkish tunes with a modern twist), humour (crass and rural), high drama and sudden relief - like a s**ual climaxing. Even with a high quotient of brutal violence and moral assassination, Kashyap keeps his sense of humour (mostly black) intact, and entertains. GOW II' is an interesting watch, for the brave-hearted. Like the first part, the movie slows down at times (with pointless pistols, hordes of characters and wasted sub-plots); the length needs to be shot down desperately. But otherwise, it's revenge on a platter - served cold (heartedly) and definitely worth a 'second' helping.

Ratings:3/5 Reviewer:Kunal Guha  Site:Yahoo
This is not a whodunit , this is a ‘how-it-is-done’. So if you believe that the lord is in the detail and the passion with which any action or emotion is expressed, this is your film. Kill Bill/ Rambo fans, book your seats now. Almost every third scene has someone being slashed or gunned down by the trigger-happy cast. And if you’re one for first person shooters, this could really inspire you to hit the console right after the movie.Infact, the first part wasted a lot of time in flagging historical landmarks, in introducing characters and was much scattered with the number of elements and periods to be covered. This one has characters ready to dive into action with a quick backgrounder for new additions, leaving much time to weave a tighter and telling story. Chhi Chha Leather, definitely one that weathers.

Ratings:3.5/5 Reviewer:Raja Sen  Site:Rediff
Gangs of Wasseypur II plunges straight into action, rendering the first part nearly redundant. Gangs Of Wasseypur II is a damned sight better than the first part, because a lot of the cumbersome subtext is already out of the way when the impressively visceral khoon-kharaba of the second film begins. A man dies, and revenge is sought. That is strictly all we need to know, the rest falling into place as it goes along. And yet, for all its folly -- and the fact that an hour could have been lopped off its running length, easy -- Gangs Of Wasseypur II provides enough cinematic memorabilia to single-handedly last us the summer.

Ratings:4/5 Reviewer:Saibal Chatterjee  Site:NDTV
Gangs Of Wasseypur II is as distinct from Gangs Of Wasseypur as today’s Wasseypur must be from the nondescript but dangerous boondocks that the first part dealt with.The sequel gets to the point infinitely quicker than Gangs Of Wasseypur did – it is free from the information overload that weighed down the initial 30 minutes of the first part. The storyline surges forth much faster as the new generation of gangsters, now armed with mobile phones and automatic rifles, gun for each other with greater viciousness and less ceremony than ever before. The revenge, filmed with an operatic slo-mo rhythm, is bloodier than anything you would have seen before. But if you liked Gangs Of Wasseypur, there is no reason why won’t have another blast watching GOW II. But be warned: be sure that your stomach for blood and gore doesn’t give way.

Gangs of Wasseypur II jumps the gun without much ado, taking off from where part I left.GOW was information-heavy, yes, but Wasseypur II is as much a film in itself. Guns speak where abusive language fails. Patience and a real kaleja will see you through this fast-paced, exhilarating blood fest. Kashyap makes sure the gore is beyond redemption. If you’re turned off by it, not his fault.

Ratings:3/5 Reviewer:Shubhra Gupta  Site:Indian Express
For me, GOW2 is a follow-through that is shot through with flashes of brilliance, and some wonderful comic verve, but that doesn’t have the enthralling power and spread of the first film.

Ratings:--- Reviewer:Sarit Ray  Site:Hindustan Times
Gangs of Wasseypur II is less like a movie sequel, more like the season finale of an ongoing (and admittedly, engaging) TV series. Part I had no real ending.The death of Sardar Khan (Manoj Bajpayee) was the sort of crucial juncture you expect the next episode to pick up from. In Part II, there’s no need for a long-drawn establishment of premise, with characters whose stories play out in fast forward. This one isn’t slow. There’s just less motion blur.

Gangs of Wasseypur-2 Hindi Review Other Critics

Ratings:2.5/5 Reviewer:Roshni Devi  Site:Koimoi

What’s Good: The performances; the music; the cinematography.What’s Bad: The predictable story; the mundane revenge drama; the half-baked characters.Loo Break: None.Watch or Not: Watch it only if you love revenge stories and bloodshed.

Ratings:1.5/5 Reviewer:Martin D Souza  Site:Glamsham
Kashyap relies on humour to push the plot when it gets stuck with too much of cartridges being expelled from a gun. It takes the sting off to an extent but then he goes back into the 'thick' of things.In short, Part II 'Definitely' does not have a 'Perpendicular' rise. It is off 'Tangent'!

  6. Martin D'souza ...whats you favorite Hindi Movie??? Must be "RockStar"...U must be going "wow" about it right??? hahahaha...pityful

  7. Gangs Of Wasseypur is a Cult-Classic... a benchmark movie in the bollywood...may be these paid reviewers won't be brave enough to say this...but this movie is a tight slap to traditionalists who imply same old used formulas to make the regular Bollywood masala...based heavily on star-cast (plastic characters), foreign locations but on superficial scripts...this film defies all that and defines dark humor...I hope movies like these work not for the movie itself but also for the satisfaction of the viewers...coz sab chutiye nahi hai...I have an advice for next week release , Sallu n' Kat(wooden chemistry) starrer "Sth Tiger"...shift your release dates man...This movie(GOW II) is here to stay...lol

    Dont you get tired from coterie of KJo/SRK/Akshay/Farah ??

    GOW-II deserves 4+ start. End of Discussion. How many movies you see opening show, late night in mid of week getting house full (Not the Akky one) ?? You must be mentally retarded to give anything below 4.

    @Roshni Devi: Go and watch Ramayan, Shri Krishna and at worse Saas-Bahu serial. This movie is beyond your caliber to understand, forget reviewing.

  16. rockstar is a chutiya movie.. if u compare dese classics to dat shit den better get a life.

    ReplyDelete
  17. hahaha...Exactly that is what I wanted to say..The anonymous who asked Martin D'souza bout his favourite movie was me..My name is Prashant (I have also commented just below that comment)..@ Riju1212 and KULASYA..seems u guys are confined to watching hindi movies or may be bad English movies which are hyped such as "Step-Up", "Twilight"at max I guess. to call "Rockstar" an awesome movie displays your intelligence level, so be careful..hehe.We are discussing one of the most celebrated movies of Indian Cinema over here and I don't want crap like "Rockstar" getting unnecessary footage over here. I am not against mainstream Cinema . But if Rockstar, Jab we met are what you call good movies then Shame on Indian Film Industry...GOW is equivalent to likes of "Pulp fiction" which changed the trend of what was considered the traditional way of film-making in Hollywood till then..IF our people have brains enough and they appreciate what its called intelligent viewing,and shun K JO's, Yash Chopras,Imtiyaaz's and appreciate likes Of Mr.Kashyap...indian film industry can see a glimmer of hope...but seriously not if u guys call "Rockstar" and awesome movie...wake up guys...its high time now...best of luck :)

  18. "Rockstar" was a crap movie which was over-hyped, nothing good abt it except Rehman. Can't compare it with "Rock On" which was outstanding.

  19. @Ankit,
    Rockstar u need to understand more. U have to think beyond what is actually shown. Rockstar & Rock on both are of very good quality & it's wrong to compare

  21. Rockstar ? Ranbir freaking out and doing all crazy stuffs. Thats not real music, atleast not in India. I have seen some freaks go & attend Rock band shows and cheer them by shaking their heads !! Silly western culture.

  22. People will remember the Wasseypur series for ages.
    Anurag Kashyap mann!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
    BlackFriday, No Smoking, DevD, Aamir, Udaan, Shaitan, Gulaal, That Girl in Yellow Boots etc all of which have got a unique cult following of its own and now Gangs of Wasseypur for which he will surely win National Award and also will have a great chance at Oscars if the jury selects it as an official selection

  25. Supurb movie only idiot people can say that this is bad movie.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Ladna band karo yaar...everyone has a different taste and perception...someone likes abuses and sex scenes because it portrays the reality of life(I loved GOW...because of the amazing real life portrayal and superb direction)...someone doesn't like Rockstar because it displays Western culture (btw the crux of the movie was the journey of a normal person to a Rockstar because of the inevitable amount of pain he felt...it was mainly a love story...music was in the supporting role) and JAB WE MET...was seriously awesome(The only movie in which Kareena did acting)

    ReplyDelete
  27. @Rahul Goyal,
    Yes dude u r completely right. Here only u understood what was Rockstar all about except me & riju . Some people could only see western songs in it & Kissing scenes between both. Anyways it happens

  44. it was a very different experience to see film like gangs of wasseypur 2 ,an action drama which is rear to see in bollywood . Anurag again shown that he is one of the best film director we have today. Within his limitation to make this kind of movie its really unbelievable.

  51. Saw a lot of comment saying Rockstar is a good movie. Heh! making me laugh and puke at the same time. A. THIS IS NOT ROCK B.It has nothing to do with western or no western. I have written in lot of music magazines on rock and blues music. I love the history of music. Rockstar, Ranbir was good but rest everything in that movie is bloody pointless. Now talking about GoW you kidding me despite of being different genre there is one thing common between all the movies and that is how you weave a seamless flow of plots whether its romantic or gangsta movie and very rarely a cinema like GoW comes along which os able to achieve it. This applies to all genre any language any country.

    Those who talk about western and eastern culture, i would like to ask one question: do you people read like EVER? or what you saw in ramanand sagar ramayan or told by people around you you took it as your culture. Have you ever tried reading our texts be it ramayana or mahabharat or vedas or purans or anything else before becoming a crusader of your culture.

    We all are free to express our opinion but before giving such strong opinion plz do a bit of reading and research.

  54. wonderful joyride of a sequel...superb movie..nice pace...and script..though i m a fan of rohit shetty till i have complain about him...for golmaal series...why he gave golmal1,2,3 kind of name...no connection between the previous one.GOW I,II is the real sequel,hats off to anurag.and one thing i must point out...cameo of tigmanshu dhulia was superb.this kid of movies hardly notice by the lots of people due to lack of publicity while movies of khans(except aamir khan-due to noticable content),chopras,johars..do huge publicity to make the rubbish movie becomes hit.but directors like anurag,vishal bhardwaj,tigmanshu dhulia, have their own fan following.must see for the fans of anurag kashyap.
