Gangs Of Wasseypur

Have been awaiting this movie for long. Especially since it is about the coal mafia in Jharkhand. To entrust a topic such as this with Anurag Kashyap is seriously inviting trouble… during the shooting, the film’s assistant director Sohil Shah was killed in an auto accident. The film finished production in late March 2011, with Anurag Kashyap moving on to direct his next film immediately…

It is going to be two films actually instead of one (the whole film is about 5hrs and 20min long – i doubt anybody has the time and patience to launch such a film and the audience to sit something like mother india all over again!!!)

So we have two different stories one after another.. and one that is going to be screened at the Cannes Film Festival in the Directors’ Fortnight section… So i guess Anurag is there once more… head held high..

Fortunately we are not going to have Kalki in the film… her tremendous performances are turning out to be quite a distraction, and i am sure her performances are always overshadowed by her relationship that most courteously avoid..The music is something else which i am curious about – a lady Sneha Khanwalkar.

According to Kashyap, even the people of Wasseypur love Bollywood… “Most of the people living there are criminals, but the way Bollywood and crime merge over there is incredible. I have never seen something like this before. Wasseypur has the true fans of Bollywood,” he said… Now that’s interesting…
