Gangs Of Wassypur Part Ii: A Damp Squib

Gangs of Wassypur part I was a film by Anurag Kashyap  that cought the imagination of the public. I am afraid his sequel ,the part II is not only too long but fails to leave an impact.

The film takes off from the end of part I where Sardar Khan is shot dead. In part I Manoj Bajpai did an exceptional job as an actor, but without him part II is one long drawn yawn. iI is sad as one expected the director to develop the story further. But what we have is some obscene dialogue and a lot of killing.

The killing gets on your nerves and one wonders whether the director has any story to relate.

The film centres on the revenge of the son of Sardar Khan against the man who had engineered the killing of his father.  The director  has tried to make a realistic film

but in the bargain has sacrificed story content and presentation. However the shots of the state of Bihar and Wasseypur are realistic and the music with its rural background good. But all these do not save the film.

 Reema Sen has nothing to do after her explosive scenes  in Part I . An assorted bunch of new comers are cast. They do a good job, but the  director seems to have lost the plot and the film is  staid and mundane, bordering on ennui.

 Its also a trifle too long. Maybe in case the director had edited at least 30 minutes of the film and made it shorter, it would have had a better effect. So what is my rating. I am afraid its one star on a 5 point scale.
