Anurag Kashyap was absolutely right when he said that he made just one film about an imaginary badland, but at the end of the day, that one film became two films. The magnum opus that started with Gangs Of Wasseypur and traversed through a generation of baddies finally came to an end with its sequel. To be honest, Part II was much better devised and executed, giving the impression that the person who had directed the earlier movie hadn't had a role to play in this one.
Sans any star-power, the second part is far better and quite evenly paced. It would have been great had these two films been released as just one film or may be the audience would have had the option of watching the sequel at a different show time. The sequel could have made up for the pace that had been such a deterrent in the first film.
The second part is clearly better than the first
The second part is no less a gore fest than the first part but it is certainly much easier on your brain. Characters are introduced frequently even though Nawaz keeps hogging the limelight for the entire length of the film. In the second part of the film, you have a few very good actors who play their part so well that every time your interest tends to waver, they bring you back to the edge of your seat. The actors (we don't think anybody is bothered about their names) who have played the role of 'Perpendicular' and 'Definite' have delivered some of their finest performances.
The gore fest continues
The amount of blood spilled in the first half shows no sign of stopping in the second part. The guns spew out bullets like they have been distributed free from the government. The way people are put to death to no reaction from the administration might give you an impression that the backdrop in not Wasseypur but some badland in remote Afghanistan.
What to do?
This part is much better than the first and so those of you who didn't like the first, might like the second, and those of you who liked the first part, will surely like the second.
