Review Rowdy -TweetPlot = The movie is a compilation of 3 different stories revolving around the residents of Maya Nagar Chawl, in Mumbai. The stories depict everyday challenges of common people and highlight some prejudices prevailing in our society. Opinion = If you type ‘Short […]
Plot = Both the movies of Gangs Of Wasseypur Series, showcase the formation of Coal and Iron Mafia in Dhanbad which was in the state of Bihar and now is in Jharkhand. The series covers a time span from 1941 till 2012 and is a revenge – drama focused on a single family, where the head of the family Shahid Khan, played by actor Jaideep Ahlawat and his son Sardar Khan, played by actor Manoj Bajpai, gets murdered by Ramadhir Singh, played by actor – director Tigmanshu Dhulia, and then the movie showcase how Faizal Khan (2nd son of Sardar Khan), played by actor Nawazudin Siddiqui, kills Ramadhir Singh and avenge the death of his family members.
Opinion = Well, believe it or not, this movie is everyone’s guilty – pleasure. Over the years, both the movies of GOW series have attained a cult status. There is a company known as 1018 MB which organizes special screenings of old bollywood and Hollywood classics. I got the opportunity to interact with their management, who informed me that, they receive repeated requests of back-to-back screenings of GOW Series and all the shows get housefull maximum within 4 days of its announcement on their website. I had personally been to the screening organized by them and was spellbound seeing the response of the audience. The entire auditorium was packed and people were clapping, whistling and even mouthing dialogues of the movie during the screening. It was complete chaos there. Especially the second part of the series can be considered as a modern – day SHOLAY. The characters of SHOLAY like Thakur Baldev Singh, Jai, Veeru, Basanti, Gabbar, Kaalia, Ramlal, Mausiji and even Dhanno (Basanti’s horse) left a lasting impression on its audience. Here also, Ramadhir Singh, Faizal Khan, Definite, Perpendicular, Tangent, Sultan, Nagma Khatun, Fazlu, Shamshaad Alam, etc have become memorable and people are still seen quoting names and tagging their friends with their identity.
Performances = This movie made Nawazuddin Siddiqui a star overnight. This was Nawazuddin’s debut project as a lead actor and his characterization of Faizal Khan has become historic in Bollywood. The acting and career graph of Nawazuddin in this movie and afterwards, is known by one and all and hence cannot be justified or described here. Another stellar performance was given by Director – Actor Tigmanshu Dhulia. He had broken all stereotypes of bollywood villains and has made the character of Ramadhir Singh so lively and memorable that it will be remembered and revered by generations to come. The supporting actors including (but not limited to) Zeishan Quadri (Definite), Richa Chadda (Nagma Khatun), Piyush Mishra (Nasir Ahmed), Pankaj Tripathi (Sultan Qureshi), Rajkummar Rao (Shamshad Alam), Vineet Kumar Singh (Danish Khan), Satyakaam Anand (JP Singh), Muran Kumar (Guddu), Yashpal Sharma (Band Singer), Inspector Gopal Singh and all the others who even had a presence in a single frame, have done a fantabulous job. Their performance has given this movie a cult status.
Direction & Other Technical Aspects = Baap Ka, Dada Ka, Bhai Ka, sabka badla lega re tera Faizal; Jab tak Hindustan mein saneema hai, log chutiye bante rahenge; Tumse naa ho payega; are some of the dialogues which are extremely famous and people are still seen quoting them everywhere. Director Anurag Kashyap has specially made the 2nd part of GOW in Quentin Tarantino Style. Especially, the climax sequence where Faizal Khan shoots Ramadhir Singh, the gore and bloodshed depicted in that scene, highly resembles Tarantino’s craft. The Screenplay, Production Design, Music, Cinematography, Background Score and all the other technicalities of the movie are top notch and have made the movie what it is today.
Rowdy Rating = 4 / 5
