Gangs of Wasseypur releasing on 22 June

MUMBAI: Viacom18 Motion Pictures is set to release Gangs of Wasseypur, its co-production venture with Anurag Kashyap, across India on 22 June. The film has already got an ‘A” certificate.

Even though the content of the film is for adults, Kashyap is confident of having a decent audience.

"All films are not for kids. This film is not at all for children. Adult audiences will come to watch it for sure," he observes.

To be released in two parts, the film, a story spanning three generations from 1941 to 2009, is set against the backdrop of the coal mafia operating in North India.

The first part of the film, which begins at the end of the colonial era in India, follows the story of Shahid Khan who robs British trains in the garb of the legendary Sultana daku. An outcast, Shahid becomes a worker at Ramadhir’s colliery and starts a revenge battle that passes on to generations.

The plot then moves to the end of the decade where Shahid’s son Sardar Khan, whose motto in life is to avenge his father’s honour, makes him the most feared man in Wasseypur. The town, heavily influenced by Bollywood and gun culture, adds quirk to this realistic politival revenge drama.

While the first part of this film of 5 hrs and 20 minutes will release on 22 June, the second part is also expected to release before the year end.

The film was recently screened at the Cannes Film Festival.
