Trivia

Sardar Khan's son Perpendicular and his friend Tangent are seen watching "Munnabhai MBBS", a popular Bollywood movie released in 2003 starring actor Sanjay Dutt. Nawazuddin Siddiqui, who plays Faizal Khan Perpendicular's elder brother, played a blink-and-you-miss-him role in the same film when he was an unknown actor. See more »

Goofs

While 'Faizal Khan' come out of the banaras jail when he is arrested for the first time for having pistol with him during search in train,we can clearly see mobile battery etc not allowed in the right side of the jail door.Since the scene was of early 90's the mobile phone was not used during those days.

Gangs Of Wasseypur is Entertainment Entertainment Entertainment
22 June 2012 | by (Mumbai) – See all my reviews

Just watched this movie today on the day of release.Excellent background music throughout the movie. Excellent acting by Manoj Bajpayee & Richa Chaddha. Superb comedy and action. A movie you need to watch in theaters to enjoy it fully.Dabangg is nothing in front of this movie.This movie is just Entertainment,Entertainment and Entertainment.Had to choose between Teri Meri Kahani & Gangs of Wasseypur today. I am glad that we chose to go for Gangs of Wasseypur.It takes a lot of skill to make a movie like this. I hope it sweeps all the awards this year. Manoj Bajpayee's role as Bhikoo Mhatre was memorable and in this movie his role as Sardar Khan will be more memorable than any of his past performances.
