Gangs of Wasseypur II is attention-grabbing, spellbinding and compelling than the initial part. Along with vibrant characters, Anurag amalgamates humor skillfully in the sequence of events [note the amusing names: Definite, Perpendicular and Tangent]. It also illustrates how Wasseypur is consumed with Bollywood; they emulate hairdos and appearances of various Hindi movie heroes. While there is little doubt that Gangs of Wasseypur was winning to the core, Gangs of Wasseypur 2 infuses some remarkable light moments in the narrative that reeks of vengeance and reprisal.
Director Anurag Kashyap, in his trademark pragmatic approach to story-telling, fascinatingly spins this tremendous account. However, with an elongated runtime, the movie misplaces grip, albeit faintly, towards the middle of the subsequent half. But congregates steam yet again without much ado, ensuing a spectacular culmination. On the facade, Gangs of Wasseypur 2 is a vengeance story, a representation of retribution connecting generations of gangsters. Scrape that exterior and you'll notice more than that. The writing is unrestrained and imaginative. In fact, in terms of its screenplay, there is not a single scene in the film that leaves you with a sense of deja vu.
Not just the plot of the movie, but the musical composition of this motion picture is an enchantment as well. After presenting moviegoers with some sprightly sounds in Gangs of Wasseypur, music composer Sneha Khanwalkar returns with some impressive music in the succeeding chapter of the film. While 'Hunter', 'Womaniya' and 'Bihar Ke Lala' remain etched in the hearts and on the lips of many, the songs in the subsequent installment, 'Chi Cha Leather' and 'Kaala Rey' have incredible recall value. Also, I'd like to point out that Anurag uses the songs against the film's most violent and fierce scenes, which hardly ever happens in a Hindi movie.
