The King of Dark Cinema Anurag Kashyap is back with a bang with his latest Gangs of Wasseypur 2 that releases today. Gangs of Wasseypur 2, featuring Richa Chadda, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Huma Qureshi is believed to take violence and bloodshed to a new level. The first part has received critical and commercial acclaim, and thus the audiences have high expectations from the second part also. But, the question is, will the second part successfully continue the half achieved revenge saga?
Story: Gangs of Wasseypur 2 continues the revenge saga after the gruesome murder of the powerful Sardar Khan (Manoj Bajpai). The film shows Sardar's son Faizal (Nawazuddin Siddiqui), the most powerful man of today's Wasseypur, whose sole ambition however, is to annihilate Ramadhir Singh (Tigmanshu Dhulia). There's a lot of raw gaalis and bloody scenes. But surprisingly, the second part will make you smile and giggle with some raw romance. There are parts, that gives Nawaaz a few oppurtunities to get cosy with his love Mohsina (Huma Qureshi). What happens next? Will Faizal kill Ramadhir? To learn more about the film, watch it out...
Performances: Gangs of Wasseypur 2 is worth watching for top-notch performance delivered by each character. Nawazuddin Siddiqui is incredible in the film. He is so strong in his screen presence that he owns every frame in which he features. One actor, who had delivered a commendable performance in the first part was Richa Chadda, who doesn't shy away from the ugliest street slang, and chasing her husband with a stick after she finds out that he was cheating on her. Chadda, now an old woman in the second part, does equal justice to her role. In one word, she's fab. Huma Qureshi is again seen in her flamboyant attire and usual sunglasses. She is lovely as Mohsina.
Positives: The film works for the strong acting department as each character delivers a mind-boggling performance. Sneha Khanwalkar's rooted, rustic, folk and experimental background score needs a special mention.
Negatives: The movie will be torturous if you can't handle high-end action, unstoppable bullets raining and blood splattering. Another flaw that's evitable is that every chapter in GOW 2 demands more patience. You would come across too many layers, sub-plots and sub-texts in the film that might leave you in a confused mess.
Verdict: For those, who want more of maar-dhaad and blood shed movies, GOW 2 is for you. Though the movie might disappoint you when compared to the first part, it promises you heavy dose of raining bullets and bloody-bravado.
