Critic Reviews for Gangs of Wasseypur
One of the most ambitious gangster films ever made, and quite possibly one of the best.
It's a story about charismatic killers, men we love to hate, characters who are depraved, ennobled and finally doomed by their disregard for ordinary human decency and their devotion to an endless cycle of violent retribution.
Impressively, "Gangs of Wasseypur" manages its sprawling story lines deftly and maintains a brisk pace throughout its daunting length.
A frequently spectacular achievement: five hours - and then some - of gliding camera moves, brutal action and dizzying revenge plotting, often set to a peppy pop music backbeat.
Even at this running time, the film dips into decades but doesn't dig deeply into lives.
Audience Reviews for Gangs of Wasseypur
I was going to stop after ep. 2, but I finished this overlong gangster saga just to see what's the raves all about... Story was pretty good, but the realization it's a no-brainer to me, plus the unnecessary singing and dancing...
A gangster flick that failed to click. With me, that is. Hope the sequel would be better, and more worthwhile than this not-so-engaging chaos. Not being a professional critic grants me an immunity from the obligation of rating an Anurag Kashyap venture at least 3/5. (Can afford the freedom of arrogance for the time being, although arrogance has played no part in my rating of this flick.) 1.5/5 with a generous heart.
Anurag Kashyap's sprawling epic saga on three generations of a crime family in Bihar is filled with lots of awesome, twisted set-pieces topped up with rip-roaring dialogues, splendid performances and earthy music and cinematography, but don't be insistent on a wholesome story.
