Towards the end of colonial India, Sahid Khan loots the British trains, impersonating the legendary Sultana Daku. Now outcast, Shahid becomes a worker at Ramadhir Singh's colliery, only to spur a revenge battle that passes on to generations. At the turn of the decade, Shahid's son, the philandering Sardar Khan vows to get his father's honor back, becoming the most feared man of Wasseypur. Staying true to its real life influences, the film explores this revenge saga through the socio-political dynamic in erstwhile Bihar (North India), in the coal and scrap trade mafia of Wasseypur, through the imprudence of a place obsessed with mainstream 'Bollywood' cinema.

Gangs Of Wasseypur Review - In Brief: Clans formed in pre-Independence era battle it out for supremacy over decades in the dusty coal town of Dhanbad.

Gangs Of Wasseypur Review - Verdict: Definitely worth a watch for sheer cinematic pleasure!

Gangs Of Wasseypur Review - Story Plot: When the father of Sardar Khan (Manoj Bajpayee), who works as an enforcer for a coal mining big-wig Ramadhir Singh (Tigmanshu Dhulia), is killed by his employer for being too ambitious, the young Sardar vows to avenge his father's death and grows up with a single minded vendetta- to destroy Singh slowly but surely. Meanwhile, there is another feud between Khan's clan and that of Sultan (Pankaj Tripathi), whose families have been clashing since the pre-Independence era. If that is not all, Sardar, who just can't seem to get enough of women, is caught between his two wives Nagma (Richa Chadda) and Durga (Reema Sen). How the two gangs battle it out for supremacy, while Sardar deals with his own issues at home, forms the rest of the plot.

Gangs Of Wasseypur Review - Performances:Manoj Bajpai as Sardar Khan is simply a pleasure to watch. A cold-blooded gangster, who kills a man with an ice pick in broad daylight and yet scurries away like a scalded cat when his angry wife starts throwing pots and pans at him, Bajpai's Sardar makes you cringe and guffaw in equal measure. Richa Chadda as the feisty Nagma, who doesn't think twice before hurling invectives at her husband and threatening a bunch of policemen with a sickle, does her job well too. A newbie actress, who had a short role in Oye Lucky! Lucky Oye!, Chadda manages to exonerate herself quite well in this gangland flick. Moreover, special mention also goes to Nawazuddin Siddiqui, who plays Sardar's son Faisal Khan. Just like his father, Faisal is a complicated character-one who can be ruthless when he wants to be and yet get teary-eyed after being scolded by a girl for acting fresh. Siddiqui's Faisal has that 'poor little boy' quality that makes him so endearing, despite him being a pot-head and an heir to a mafia empire. Director Tigmanshu Dhulia, who makes his acting debut, performs his part with the élan of a veteran. Other actors like Pankaj Tripathi, Piyush Mishra and Jaideep Ahlawat too are impressive with their work. Special credit goes to the casting director for hand-picking the perfect actors for the characters. ..for example, the actor who plays the younger Ramadhir Singh (a role played by Tigmanshu) closely resembles Tigmanshu Dhulia, which lends the whole process a sense of authenticity…

Gangs Of Wasseypur Review - Direction:  Kashyap, who has given us mind-blowing products like Black Friday, Dev D, Gulaal and Paanch, delivers an epic crime saga with this latest film. Though the first half seems to go on and on without stopping, the movie is simply a pleasure to watch-be it for the variety of characters or performances or the dialogues or the comical situations, even in the middle of hard-core action sequences (like the scene where Bajpai's country-made revolver ends up scorching his own hand, leaving him hopping around and cursing with much feeling even as his intended victim makes a dash for life). The violence is gritty and without mercy so if you are too squeamish to watch bodies being butchered or heads bludgeoned with stones, better give this one a miss. However, one does end up feeling that Kashyap could have kept the movie a tad concise.

Gangs Of Wasseypur Review - Music: With songs like Womaniya, I am a hunter and keh ke lunga, the music of Gangs Of Wasseypur has already been a hit with the masses even before the release and the music is sure to keep one entertained as much as the plot.

Gangs Of Wasseypur Review - Final Word: For fans of Manoj Bajpai and the Kashyap school of gritty filmmaking, Gangs Of Wasseypur is a treat for sure.
