Ratings: *** 1/2 (3.5 out of 5)
There is a buzz on internet that the movie “Gangs of Wasseypur Part II” has better production values then
The sequel gets to the point infinitely quicker than Gangs Of Wasseypur did – it is free from the information overload that weighed down the initial 30 minutes of the first part.
The reports also suggest that Director, Anurag Kashyap’s culmination to this gang-saga is as bloody as the first (if not more); yet it’s an easier watch. The story is astutely interspersed with bursts of music (Bihari folkish tunes with a modern twist), humour (crass and rural), high drama and sudden relief – like a sexual climaxing. Even with a high quotient of brutal violence and moral assassination, Kashyap keeps his sense of humour (mostly black) intact, and entertains.
One of the reasons why GOW2 is worth watching is because all the performances are top notch! Nawazuddin Siddiqui does the perfect shift of character as Faizal Khan. To paraphrase his character, “Sab ka badla liya Faizal!” Huma is lovely as Mohsina. It’s a pleasure to watch the shifting moods of Perpendicular and Zeishan Quadri as Definite. Everyone else provides incredible support on screen – As per the reports.
The movie is said to be a fitting conclusion to the vengeance story.
