Gangs of Wasseypur I

de Anurag Kashyap


Shahid Khan and Sultana Daku are two rival train robbers. When Shahid becomes a renegade, he is forced to work in a mine that belongs to Ramadhir Singh. Years later, his son Sardar will want to restore his father’s honor, taking revenge against the Daku clan and making him one of the most feared men in India. During its runtime of over five hours, the tale of hatred between families in Gangs of Wasseypur moves through  generations, until reaching our time and without leaving a single loose end in its sociocultural analysis of the tensions between different regions in India.
