GANGS OF WASSEYPUR movie review: Don’t miss this entertaining commotion!
Superlative performances, expressive writing, matchless background score and brilliant cinematography are some of the many key elements that make Anurag Kashyap’s Gangs of Wasseypur possibly the best dark comedy in Indian cinema
We see an extreme close-up of a television screen showcasing Smriti Irani chanting the title track of a renowned soap. The quintessential bahu goes Rishton ke bhi roop badlte hain, ek pidhi aati hain ek phidhi jaati hain, kyun ki saas bhi kabhi bahu thi! (Relations keep changing. One generation appears on the foreground the older one fades into the background because every dog has his day!) The camera zooms out and gives the full view of a room with a bunch of village bumpkins engrossed in catching up their daily dose of saas-bahu drama. Click here to read more

Music: Sneha Khanvalkar

GANGS OF WASSEYPUR’s ‘Womaniya’: Bite him!
Did Anurag Kashyap’s film make the right impression at the Cannes Film Festival?
We were listening to this song just the other day and couldn’t help but wonder – did the jury at the Cannes Film Festival 2012 really understand what was being sung? Or did they think we actually believe a lady is a ‘womaniya’ and not a ‘woman’? With all the biting going on in the song, we won’t be surprised if the jury got an unintentionally hilarious impression. Yes, we know the film was screened with subtitles, but it is really tough to understand womaniya in Hindi, leave alone to translate it in a western language. We know, ’cause we tried it and had to give up midway. Here’s what we could do: Click here to read more
