Anurag Kashyap's epic, selected for Directors' Fortnight Cannes 2012, charts the decades-long conflict between two families involved in coal mining and organised crime in Wasseypur, in the Indian state of Jharkhand. Having more in common with the films of Martin Scorsese and Francis Ford Coppola than the Indian cinema we are accustomed to, Gangs of Wasseypur is an exhilarating tale of vengeance - a thrilling, beautifully shot and extremely violent journey tracing the feud between mining magnate and politician Ramadhir Singh and the Khan family, from colonial to contemporary times. Ramadhir takes on three Khan generations beginning with the industrious Shahid Khan, then his philandering son, Sardar Khan, and then Sardar's dope-addled son Faizal Khan. (We note the passage of time through the Bollywood films the family loves to watch.) The Khans are traditional gangsters: aggressive, brutal when necessary and flashy.

I got tickets for this and seeing it in a month. I can't find a reliable source but it's either 320 minutes long or 355 minutes long.

Guess there's still hope for Indian cinema that matters in the long run.

It's about 3 hours too long for me to see it in a theater.

Probably about 90 minutes. I just wonder how much of the remainder will be taken up by slapstick comedy and the obligatory love story between a gorgeous beauty and a chubby guy with helmet hair.
