Crime thriller Gangs of Wasseypur
, based on a real life story, wowed the audiences despite a high dose of gore and violence. Now part two of the movie is releasing on Wednesday (August 8) and is said to be taking violence and bloodshed to a new level.
The first part opened on June 22 amid critical and commercial acclaim.
Centered around power, politics and rivalry among three families, the film explores revenge through the socio-political dynamic in Wasseypur, Jharkhand, also known for coal and scrap trade mafia.
While Gangs of Wasseypur 1
spans the 1940s to the 1990s, Gangs Of Wasseypur
2 will be the culminating factor that will take the story forward from the 1990s till 2009.
Gangs of Wasseypur 2
is said to be a fitting conclusion to the vengeance story.
Written by Zeishan Quadri, who hails from Wasseypur, the film is co-produced by Anurag Kashyap and Sunil Bohra.
Powerful performers like Manoj Bajpayee, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Tigmanshu Dhulia, Richa Chadda and Huma Qureshi form the cast of the movie.
More than 90 per cent of the film has been shot in Uttar Pradesh to bring the right mood and feel to the story.
Both the parts were screened at the 65th Cannes International Film Festival and the just-concluded Osian's Cinefan film fest in the capital.
