When Shamshad Alam chase Definite on the streets. One can easily see that the vehicles on the road are having number plates with Registration number of Uttar Pradesh-65 which is of Varanasi.

This is because that the scene was shot with the hidden cameras on an actual location on the streets of Varanasi. See more »
I have just returned from the first day late night show of this movie (the first part) and it has totally blown me away.
The movie starts with a bang and carries the charm throughout. The way each character is introduced is terrific. It is story telling at its best. From Shahid Khan to Sardar Khan to Sultan, you actually end up fearing them all - the characters are so beautifully portrayed. Manoj Bajpai is amazing as Sardar (he really got into the character) and the narration (by one of the gang members) adds a lot of flavor to the entire flow of the movie.
Siddiqui's role is brief in the first part and I have a feeling he will play a major role in the remaining part of this epic. He is already looking good. Tigmanshu as Ramadheer Singh is terrific, his expressions too good.
Apart from this, the movie is informative - it very subtly tells the audience all about the way Indian coal mafia has progressed over the years, the gang wars, the politics. Obviously there is a lot of slang. I have not seen a Hindi movie with so crude a language ever, absolutely not recommended for family viewing and children/teenagers.
The camera angles, especially the final sequence is superb.
Anurag Kashyap is India's answer to Quentin Terentino. Gangs of Waseypur is already a Cult.
