Trivia

The scene featuring a flooded coal mine (just before Sardar Khan is born) is shot in a real coal mine that was actually dry. Using the sound of water dripping and people wading through water, and actors walking as if struggling to cross water, they created the illusion of flooded mine in the darkly lit shot. There is not a drop of water inside the mine in reality now. See more »

Goofs

(at around 28 mins) When Danish goes to Rajhans Mansion to kill his father's murderer's apprentice you can see "EZYPAY" poster on the left side of the screen with Mobile's picture in it. At that point of time as per movie even pagers were not around in India it was some years later that pagers were introduced and Faizal comes to know about it and it took some more years for mobile to be known in India.

A riveting drama spanning decades
22 June 2012 | by (India) – See all my reviews

One of the most awaited movies of the year, the first part of Gangs of Wasseypur lives up to expectations. However, the only disappointing aspect of the movie is that one has to wait for the part two of the movie to see how the story unfolds. The movie is based at Wasseypur and other surrounding areas of Dhanbad. The time-line of the movie spans from early 1940s to early 1990s. The second part of the movie is expected to span from early 1990s to mid 2000s. It's a story of Pathans Shahid Khan (played by Jaideep Ahlawat)and his son Sardar Khan (Manoj Bajpayee, Qureshis, and politician-cum-coal mine owner-cum- local don Ramadheer Singh (Tigmanshu Dhulia)and his son. The tussle between Pathans and Qureshis, and that between Shahid Khan and Sardar Khan on one side and Ramadheer Singh and his son on the other side are the highlights of the movie. In between, one also sees different facets of coal mafia, revenge, rivalries among Muslims, and even love stories too. The movie is intense, gripping, and has a fair sprinkling of cuss words one finds in Bihar and Jharkhand, where the film is based. The music of the film is another highlight, and one needs to watch the film to fully realize the relevance of songs in the film. In short: a must- watch movie for those who love hard hitting movies with great acting from all the actors.
