Gangs Of Wasseypur: Let the show begin
Anurag Kashyap’s latest film made waves from Wasseypur to Cannes, but going by what these B-Town folk have to say, it’s set to draw in the masala lovers too
BOMBAY TIMES (June 22, 2012)
Even before it has hit the screens, this violent tale of interior Bihar has captivated critics as well as audiences. Filmmaker Anurag Kashyap’s Gangs Of Wasseypur might be set in the lower rungs of the Bihar mafia, but it has not just made waves in international circuits — competing at the Cannes film festival — but has also earned new fans in those who have watched it before release. And don’t judge it primarily by its international reviews, in case you are thinking this is a film just for the ‘festival types’. It has got global critics comparing Anurag to Tarantino and Coppola, but has also got the desi audience thoroughly entertained. As Anurag Kashyap says, mainstream is no more mindless.
Anurag is a hunter and you have to see his gun! I love the music, and my favourite dialogue is ‘Yeh Wasseypur hai. Yahaan kabootar bhi ek pankh se udta hai aur doosre se apni izzat bachata hai’!”
Gangs Of Wasseypur is a hardcore family saga set in a lawless, testosterone-driven land. I loved it. I love Anurag Kashyap and I can’t wait to see part 2.
It’s very enticing, I believe it’s Anurag’s best. It’s violent, but he’s made it in a very entertaining way.
Gangs… is non-stop indulgence, like an insane party! It truly is one of the biggest guilty pleasures for life. To see Indian male sex machines in ghamchhas and chewing datun while a luscious bhabhi drools over him, to see a bullet-riddled body take 30 seconds to die while the sun blinds your eyes, and the music, which contrasts so dementedly with everything… It’s like eating one-to-one rice-mutton ratio. I want to chew on it till juices run down my chin.
