The movie is set in Bihar, which is now a part of Jharkhand. It takes place in the pre-independence era. As the title suggests, Gangs of Wasseypur is a movie about gangsters. The film started with a four-minute take showing some Hindi soap and then pulled into a lane, where gangs were looking for a man, gunning down everyone in their path. Then the tension becomes too much to bear; the film is being forwarded for the next five hours. 

After the opening which was set in the present, the story goes into flashback. The movie even revolves around the romantic life of couples. 

This story is overall a mix of many short stories within, with lots of interesting twists and turns. Watch to find out more.!! 

Star performances

The movie features Manoj Bajpai, Huma Qureshi, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Richa Chadda, Tigmanshu Dhulia in the lead. In the movie, Manoj Bajpai plays his role well. He gets into the skin of his character that, at a point of time, it feels like the character was only written for him. Other actors have also done a really good job. Even the supporting cast is very good and have played their characters well.


This story is written by Zeishan Quadri and Anurag Kashyap. The story is very big that's the reason ‘Gang of Wasseypur' is being divided into two parts ‘Gangs of Wasseypur 1’ and ‘Gangs of Wasseypur 2’ in which the second part was released within a very short span, just after the first part’s release. The story has lots of twists and turns, which is confusing at times, but keeps the audience hooked to the story. ‘What will happen next?’ is the question which wanders around the brain.
