back
  • 8th August 2012
    Anurag Kashyap’s trigger-happy Gangs are back. Wild, wild Wasseypur is buzzing once again with the swish of daggers, the din of gunshots and the curved conversations of violent men perpetually on the edge of sanity. In years to come, Gangs of Wasseypur will, for all intents and purposes, be critically assessed as a single film. It has been split into two only by the exigencies of the movie exhibition business. But for the moment, the question is inevitable: does Gangs Of Wasseypur II take off seamlessly enough from where the first part of the blood-splattered vengeance saga ended?

    The revenge, filmed with an operatic slo-mo rhythm, is bloodier than anything you would have seen before. But if you liked Gangs Of Wasseypur, there is no reason why won’t have another blast watching GOW II. But be warned: be sure that your stomach for blood and gore doesn’t give way.

    Phuchchak! A stab in the eye. Krreeeech! A human head severed from the rest. Swish! Swoosh! Perpendicular and tangent blades inserted into flesh. And then, a semi-automatic is used to poke intestines swinging from a carcass that has been polka-dotted with gun fire. Now you know, when director Anurag Kashyap says dark, he means 99% cocoa.
