A clash between Sultan (a Qureishi dacoit chief) and Shahid Khan (a Pathan who impersonates him) leads to the expulsion of Khan from Wasseypur, and ignites a deadly blood feud spanning three generations.
The story of six young Indians who assist an English Woman to film a documentary on the extremist freedom fighters from their past, and the events that lead them to relive the long forgotten saga of freedom.
Shahid Khan is exiled after impersonating the legendary Sultana Daku in order to rob British trains. 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. Written by

Moharram, a Shia rite is celebrated in the Sunni dominated Wasseypur. But the celebration of moharram procession passes from a lot of areas in and around the city, and for that matter a lot of sunni dominated areas also celebrate moharram as much as Shias do. See more »

Gangs Of Wasseypur is Entertainment Entertainment Entertainment
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.
