Gosh..I am so relieved that I was spared of an experience like Raktacharitra 2. Shot continuously, Gangs of Wasseypur 2 has managed to keep the tempo, action, gore and comic verve of its prequel unlike Raktacharitra series. Gangs of Wasseypur ends with the slaying of Sardar Khan, played with such virtuosity by Manoj Bajpai that it’s hard to have forgotten him in the month and more it is taken for the next part to come out. His sons, primarily Danish (Singh) and Faizal (Siddiqui) take up where Sardar left off.

Just when the song Yaad teri aayegi starts playing on the microphone at Sardar’s funeral, we are reminded of the flavour that was packed in the previous movie, with all its freshness. To put it more appropriately, the two movies should have been placed in a single movie separated by intervals leaving the audience at variance about which half is the best. Right amidst flying bullets, falling bodies and flowing blood stands Kashyap’s characters that are etched out of a curious mix containing humour, rivalry and revulsion in their hearts. They will do anything from imitating filmy heroes to building their own crime empire. However, one got to say that part II is missing much that was attractive about part I.

What part I justifiably slowed up was for character development; which was not up to the mark in the sequel. GOW2 have rivalries and daytime murders going on but too much of it was focussed at, leaving characters running around with fanciful guns. Chase sequences have been executed well but again too much of it will make the audience wonder whether Kashyap is trying to better his own personal best chase scene in Black Friday.

But certain characters have their rightful depth too, particularly the intensity with which they are brought in at points. The brother of Sardar’s hash-smoking heir Faisal (Nawazuddin Siddiqui) is brought in perpendicular to him right when his feud with Ramadhir Singh (Tigmanshu Dhulia) tightens. If the first film belonged to Manoj Bajpayee, Nawazuddin Siddiqui's is the performance to watch in Wasseypur 2. Nawaz makes you forget it is only an act, and that is his accomplishment. He swaps impeccably from a skinny dim-wit to the resolute son out to avenge Sardar's death. The cast has saved the otherwise long movie especially the performances by Richa Chadha and Aditya kumar. Cinematography by Rajeev ravi has been brilliant once again. But the director has been so obsessed with his imaginary town of Wasseypur and its characters that he brings up numerous subplots almost till the end.

The writers Zeishan Quadri, Akhilesh and Sachin Ladia can be given credit for keeping up the intensity of the first part. With all its small flaws kept aside for an enjoyable experience, I can assure you that the cast and many particular sequences are going to thrill you. And you are going to love Gangs of Wasseypur 2 if you cheered for Gangs of Wasseypur 1.
