After a tough day at office I went to watch this movie with my gang. I had lots of expectations from this movie but it didn’t turn out to be as great as I had thought or not close to part I if I am allowed to draw the comparison.
The movie started where it ended in part I where Sardaar Khan (role played by Manoj Bajpayi) was shot at petrol pump by Sultan’s (role played by Pankaj Tripathi) people.
They went on to kill everyone in Shahid Khan’s family except Faizal Khan (role played by Nawazuddin Siddiqui). Then he realizes that puffing hukka with friend aint going to help. So he also decided to jump on this ugly war to take revenge and to rein Wasseypur area.
Everything happens as it used to happen in those days, though I am not quite sure whether they had those aaatomatic guns that have been used or not. Everything that was there in the past is there in part I so they have shown only the current situation and time doesn’t move from 19th century to 20th century.
What has been exceptional in this move is Faizal Khan’s acting. For me, he let the movie get going. He was just phenomenal in acting, while shooting and when using expletives. But what was perplexing for me was that why there wasn’t enough for Piyush Mishra except narration? The way he delivers the dialogue is just awesome. I can remember in the part I when they go to petrol pump to replenish the diesel and he slits the throat of the man sitting in the counter and Manoj Bajpai asks “Maar diye kaa?” and he answers “ pata nahi” (for me the way he said those two words were just brilliant).
I was also looking for some more tadka songs like in part I and absolutely no one can match Manoy Bajpayi’s acting.
There are also some more character: Tangent, Perpendicular, Shamshad( The guy from Ragini MMS). In all those Perpendicular was the best. He is the son of Sardar Khan and Durga( role played by Reema Sen) but in the end to become the don of Wasseypur he shoots Faizal Khan after both surrender after killing Ramadhir singh. Durga played the card to see his son rising and not the Faizal Khan.
I would say if you have watched part I, you should go watch this movie. But for those who haven’t watched first part, you aint gonna miss anything exceptional.
I would rate this movie 3 out 5.
