Trivia

The movie, as decided in pre-production, was to be released in a single part(not in part1 and part2), but no theatre in the county was ready to display a film of over 300 minutes. Hence the idea of two parts came up. See more »

Goofs

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 »

One of the best Direction and Acting so far
22 June 2012 | by See all my reviews

Gangs of Wasseypur stands firmly on the grounds of direction, acting, screenplay, story-line, cinematography & music. Manoj Pandey has delivered an outstanding performance. The movie has to be rated "A" because of a lot of abuses (which implies, its not a family flick). But the essence of it is demanding and commendable. Everyone has done a splendid job. This one is not loose even for a minute. The most important aspect of its appreciation is its star-cast. A lot of new faces and still it doesn't disappoint. You can just imagine the crew on board when actors like Piyush Mishra & Yashpal Sharma are totally wasted. An entertaining cinema worth watching. There is no doubt that Anurag Kashyap is Bollywood's Quentin Tarantino. A must watch.
