Gangs of Wasseypur II – eagerly awaited

Having seen this hell of a movie twice in the last week, I’m only raring for more. First it was with @tyagiG , @tarunsingh09 & @oldermonk – just 3 days later, I wanted to go again – went with @R_KB & Geezer (not on twitter)

This is not a review – I’m just not capable of reviewing this movie.
Gangs of Wasseypur

Really can’t remember the last time I came out of the hall with such a content, satisfied and buzzed feeling. No, I really can’t. Not that I’m saying that I’ve just seen bad movies. There have been quite some good ones – animated mostly, comedy, must watch movies (like those pirates of carribean series, which you have to watch) – but rarely does a movie come which just washes you away. This is despite the hype around this movie which, once you see the movie, seems totally justified. @Rohwit had been (and still does) endorsing this – well, the movie certainly deserves that [just hover above his handle and you’ll get it]. It’s not like those awesome trailers you see for a Akshay Kumar movie [nothing in particular about Akshay Kumar that I have against, just that the name popped up] and the movie itself turns out to be a bummer.

#GoW kills at this — the movie itself could become a trailer — it’s that awesome. Ok, maybe I’m trying to justify my double watching it but I just may watch it yet again. Yeah, it’s that good ( wish I was being paid for writing so so good about it)

There is no actor in the movie, except perhaps Sultan who I find not mind-blowing performer – and that too seems like has been done purposefully, to make him seem like a not-so-worthy. I know not much about movies, or direction or screenplay – I do know movies when they affect you.

This would seem like a cliché, but only Anuraag Kashyap could’ve pulled it off the way it has been. He just keeps on getting better – Dev D, Gulaal and now this – awesome.

Just can’t wait for #GoW – II — unless it’s a bummer, @ankash1009 has really made the best movie bollywood stable has ever come out with. Thanks for the awesome movie – to everybody involved. Guys, you have moved film making making forward – that’s a lot.

It may or may not make money, but it has made a statement — movie ho to aisi. I haven’t met or heard a person who didn’t like the movie.

Right from Shahid Khan, Tigmanshu Dhulia, Piyush Mishra (brilliant narration as well) to Richa Chadha, Faisal Khan (FK), Danish Khan, Sultan — everyone’s acted brilliantly well – so natural.

If you haven’t watched this, you ought to – movies like these are, if you ask me, national treasure, artifacts.

This will only inspire others to get away from the usual stream that the bollywood flow in.

Lanka – Bollywood movie

Saw the movie a few days back on YouTube – worth a watch if you ask me. If only for Manoj Bajpai. Story was more or less predictable but turned out to be different than what I’d thought, so yeah, not really as predictable.

There are new-comers Arjan Bajwa & Tia Bajpai in the movie (wikipedia tells me that she was the finalist of reality show sa re ga ma pa) – and naah, as I incorrectly thought, doesn’t seem to have any relation with Manoj Bajpai.

Both have acted fairly well and look good on screen, Manoj Bajpai however, steals the show.

Then there’s Yashpal Sharma (the Gangajal guy, besides his many other movies) and he is as good as always.

As you would gather after hearing the storyline, the name of the movie points to a story of a girl who is held captive by a gangster in a small town in UP – Bijnaur, and yearns for some saviour to rescue her from this Lanka.

 Sad part is that she has no ‘Ram’ to do that, ‘Vibhishan’ will have to come to the rescue. It really doesn’t make sense the way I’m pitting it and yeah, that’s not exactly the plot to be precise.

Go watch it, it’s there on YouTube – here’s the link

You already saw it? How did you find the movie?
