Gangs of Wasseypur I & II
Synopsis: Sardar Singh vows that he would destroy Ramadhir Singh financially for having his father Shahid Khan killed. Ramadhir Singh instead has him and his elder son killed by Sultan. The rest of the movie is about Faizal Khan’s vengeance.
The first part begins very well and then gets derailed by unnecessary scenes of Manoj Bajpai and Reema Sen. It has some stupid scenes of Yashpal Sharma singing. There are too many characters and their unnecessary sub plots. There are also totally BS movie scenes which are just over indulgent nonsense.
Thought the second part would be better but its even worse. Too many characters and their subplots once again. There are BS scenes like Nawaz jumping from one house to another for 15 minutes and arriving at the front of the house where others just come out of the house. There is 15 minute vegetable buying scene where characters discuss why Sultan is buying each vegetable. There is a stupid 5 minute scene discussing what Definite means. New characters and their back plots get introduced during the climax and Piyush Mishra’s voice over continues with new nonsensical events.
There could have been one brilliant three hour movie instead of this two overlong two and a half hour wannabe Mahabharat TV serials but Anurag Kashyap ruins it with his over indulgence. The two movies are like some detailed history of every person that was ever born in Wasseypur and Dhanbad.
Cinematography by Rajeev Ravi is excellent. Background Music is brilliant in some scenes. Songs are very good by themselves but some songs do suit the movie and seemed totally unnecessary.
Manoj Bajpayee is very good as Sardar Khan but has lot of unnecessary scenes. Richa Chadda is brilliant as Nagma. Nawazuddin Siddiqui is very good as Faizal Khan. Tigmanshu Dhulia is excellent. Piyush Mishra, Jaideep Ahlawat
Huma Qureshi, Huma Qureshi are all good.
Synopsis: A marksman living in exile is coaxed back into action after learning of a plot to kill the president. Ultimately double-crossed and framed for the attempt, he goes on the run to track the real killer and find out who exactly set him up, and why.
Good entertaining action movie if you are like movies with one man going around shooting and blowing up. Did not understand why Mark destroys evidence which could help him.
Mark Wahlberg was very good as the shooter. Michael Peña was very good as the FBI rookie. Kate Mara, Rhona Mitra and Danny Glover were also good.
