If you ever thought that its only Ram Gopal Verma who can get closest to realty, then its time to rethink.  There is no doubt in my mind when I write on Anuraag Kashyaps ability as a writer, and director. The first movie where I was stuck with the brilliance of Anuraag was in "Satya", considered to be the first hindi feature with not even a single urdu word used in dialogues credits of which go to Anuraag.

Gangs of Waseypur, is an epic drama of the birth, and rise of mafia in the eastern part of India precisely Bihar. Captured in as an one man narration on how the mafia started in Waseypur in Bihar, the movie captures the images with such an excellence that you will never forget whats being shown to you on the screen. Brutal and dark, Gangs of Waseypur has images which can be disturbing to a common movie goer but those who appreciate the depth of creating such images will love the detail.

The dialogues are short, witty and sometimes humorous. Coming to the story, it surrounds the city of Dhanbad and streets of Waseypur where coal is the order of the day and those controlling coal are the king makers and kings. The oppression on labor by the mine owners and the subsequent up rise of the suffered against the rulers takes you on a journey that takes you through coal mafia, sect division and rivalry in muslims in Waseypur.

The movie has excellent soundtrack by Sneha Khanwalkar and sound by G V Prakash; where the score in Quentin Torentino way with contrasting music when looked at the scene. All of this lays the foundation to the acting in the movie which is superlative. Manoj Bajpai as Sardar, Tigmanshu Dhulia as Ramadhir Singh, Piyush Mishra as Farhan, Richa Chadda as Nagrma and Nawazuddin Siddiqui as Faisal Khan with others have relived their characters to the extent that you believe their true existence.

With the epic to continue in the second part to be released by Aug 8, 2012 I cannot wait to find out how it all end. A completely make believe movie to watch. 5 star material! Kudos Anuraag & team.
