The story of Gangs of Wasseypur is good and is well-handled with close to 300 characters in the movie. Anurag Kashyap, the director of the film, unlike his movies that are dark and serious, has included situational jokes in the film that will make you laugh hard. Some funny famous jokes such as .....chahe kitna bhi badh jaye....magar....ke niche hi rahega ...... and one of the finest dialogues like “yeh wasseypur hai yahaan parinda bhi.....”
The voice over by Piyush Mishra is well-credited and establishes the script but there are some repetitions of the same artists in the movie that could have been handled (am sure that could be because of the sheer budget constraints that happen in these kind of movies).
Gangs of Wasseypur starts before India’s Independence and ends in modern India though not in 2012. It is a well-researched film and is filled with the filth of Wasseypur's shady characters, and fabulous performances, which would eventually be your take home and make you drool for the new plot that would be coming in Gangs of Wasseypur 2.
Special praise for Tigmanshu Dhulia as the villain. Gangs of Wasseypur is sure to catapult many people into more fame such as Manoj Bajpayee, Nawazuddin Siddique, Richa Chaddha, Piyush Mishra, Jaideep Ahlawat, Pankaj Tripathi, Rima Sen, Bipin Sharma, and Huma Sheikh - the list is long.
