While the first part of GOW was more about Sardar Khan (Manoj Bajpayee) and his evil ways, the focus shifts entirely to Faizal Khan (Nawazuddin Siddiqui) in part 2 after the Sardar's character makes an exit in the first installment.
Gangs of Wasseypur-Part 2 is a fitting conclusion to this story of vengeance, which by now, not just the family but also this town has come to inherit.
Part 2 will be releasing on August 8 2012.
Meanwhile Gangs of Wasseypur (GOW) has been banned in Kuwait and Qatar for being offensive to Muslims. Director Anurag Kashyap is bemused: “How’s that possible, unless the censor body lacks objectivity?”
Synopsis of GOW 2
Wasseypur is no more the town that was once consumed by the raging war between Sardar Khan and Ramadhir Singh. It has spawned a new generation of money squandering lobbyists, turning into foolhardy gangs overnight. With illegal profiteering through scrap trade auctions over the Internet, corrupt government officials, election rigging and hooliganism, the town got murkier. Everyone wanted alliance with the most powerful man of Wasseypur, Faizal Khan. His sole ambition however, is to annihilate Ramadhir Singh, the man with the grand scheme.
