Director Anurag Kashyap / 2012 / India

“A brilliant collage of genres, by turns pulverizing and poetic in its depiction of violence.” - Variety

The second instalment of Anurag Kashyap's incredible crime saga, Gangs of Wasseypur Part 2 focuses on a new generation in a Wasseypur almost unrecognisable from that in Part 1. With the war between Shahid Khan's philandering son Sardar and Ramadhir Singh now a memory - but still a raison d'être for revenge - Sardar's sons have found new and increasingly sophisticated criminal pursuits. But their sole ambition remains to annihilate Ramadhir Singh.

Where Part 1 delves into the history of the conflict and, to an extent, of postwar India, Part 2 examines a Bollywood-obsessed generation growing up on an inheritance of vengeance. An exhilarating cocktail of carnage and comedy, Gangs of Wasseypur is an extraordinary achievement.

“Tipping his hat to Scorsese, Sergio Leone and world cinema as well as paying homage to Bollywood, writer-director-producer Anurag Kashyap fashions a kind of Once Upon a Time in Bengal.” - Hollywood Reporter
