Anurag Kashyap got a Winner in Gangs of Wasseypur

Anurag Kashyap is premiering the Viacom 18 produced gangland movie – Gangs of Wasseypur in Cannes during the Cannes Film Festival. The movie is in two parts and Kashyap and Viacom will show both the parts at the festival, with a discussion thrown in between.

The story is based in Dhanbad, Jharkand and loosely woven on Coal Mafia that lords over Coal Fields in Jharia and Dhanbad. There are loads of swear words and since I spent considerable part of my growing up years in these lands, I can identify with the cuss words liberally used. Also plenty of raunchy sex and abusing womenfolk donning aviators spice up the flick. The dialogues are dirty kinds, which makes Dabang’s “Khaayega kidhar se aur paadega kidhar se” pale in comparison. A character defines the lawlessness of Wasseypur by saying, “Yahaan Toh Kabuttar Bhi Ek Pankh Se Udta Hai Aur Doosra Pankh Se Apna G**nd Bachata Hai”.

The Gangs of Wasseypur is Produced by Viacom 18 Motion Pictures and is Directed by Anurag Kashyap. It stars Manoj Bajpayee, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Tigmanshu Dhulia, Richa Chaddha and Huma Quereshi.

    Of late, raunchiness and cuss words are deliberately put in, to include their product in “real/intelligent” cinema. I am not against it, but the way actors/directors put it, is lame. They say “script demands”, script’s demands were set by themselves, why to blame the abstract script?
    Once in a while, its ok to have such stuff, but every second film is like that.. Considering Iranian cinema, the reality and simplicity they portray in most of their films, is never seen here. Even the highly acclaimed pakistani film, BOL, dealed with a serious and frank concept, but it didn’t have any of these things to promote themselves. I appreciate Anurag Kashyap’s work, but he has that “I-make-real-cinema-not-hum-aapke-hain-kaun-candy-floss” feel with him..
