Two Line Reviews - #468

Movie: Gangs of वासेपुर 2 (Hindi, 2012)

Plot: It takes off from where we get left at in GoW-1. The revenge saga gets into a 3rd generation and shows how determination, scouthing & responsibility can transform a hopeless drug-addict into a huge headache for the 2 guys bossing around the big towns of Dhanbad & Wasseypur. The Pathans are not done with Sardar, they come back for more!

What Works?
  • The tale only heats up. In this part, you are comfortable with the characters and what they mean. You are much inside the film and you get to appreciate a lot more than you would GoW-1.
  • Nawazuddin Siddiqui is a revelation and his scope is a lot different from what he does in 1. His Paijal (Faizal) showing is definitely a cult character, at least for me, and would warrant repetitive watching! His expressive eyes & face language is his asset and Kashyap has feasted on it!
  • Richa Chadda, Mishra, Tigmanshu Dhulia & Zeishan Quadri (Depnet) offer instrumental supporting roles.
  • The background score of GV Prakash is more prominent in this one (catch hold of the climax track!)
  • The collaboration Sardar's sons from his two wives offer scope for entertainment & fun.
  • The climax blood-bath is a new for Indian films and is apt for a film that builds this up for more than 4 hours!
Scouthing & Bloodbath continue! A tale of how Freddy becomes Michael Corleone!
