Don’t miss this rare chance to see both parts of Anurag Kashyap’s magnum opus, Gangs of Wasseypur, back to back on the big screen. A clash between Sultan and Shahid Khan leads to the expulsion of Khan from Wasseypur and ignites a deadly blood feud involving three generations. Covering a period of 70 years, more than five hours go by in the blink of an eye as we delve into the chaotic world of warring families, amateur gangsters, politicians and small-time crooks. Paying homage to Scorsese, Tarantino and Leone, as well as classic Bollywood cinema, Kashyap delivers an exhilarating story of vengeance, blind ambition and greed that never seems to run out of invention, or bullets.
