GANGS OF WASSEYPUR: PART TWO
Mirroring the tumultuous and explosive growth of modern India with ferocious cinematic intensity, part two of Anurag Kashyap's saga follows the criminal rise of Sardar Khan's children. As with Al Pacino's Michael Corleone in THE GODFATHER, it's the least likely of Sardar's offspring — the perpetually stoned Faizal (Nawazuddin Siddiqui, THE LUNCHBOX) — who rises to the top of the Khan crime family, vowing brutal revenge on their longtime nemesis, the wily and seemingly unstoppable Ramadhir Singh (Tigmanshu Dhulia, PAAN SINGH TOMAR). (Note adapted from Cinelicious Pics.) DIR/SCR/PROD Anurag Kashyap; SCR Akhilesh Jaiswal, Sachin K. Ladia, Zeishan Quadri; PROD Sunil Bohra, Vikram Malhotra, Guneet Monga. India, 2012, color, 158 min. In Hindi with English subtitles. NOT RATED
