Reviews & Ratings:

Sanjukta Sharma, livemint.com:
Gangs of Wasseypur is relentless in its ability to entertain, and that’s possible purely because of highly accomplished film-making. A new template for the Indian blockbuster.

Soumyadipta Banerjee, in.com: Rating: 1.5 stars
If you don’t have an academic bent of mind and you wish to be entertained, this movie is obviously not for you.

Gaurav Malani, Times of India: Verdict: Very Good
Gangs of Wasseypur is amongst Anurag Kashyup's most accomplished and engaging works since Black Friday. And we are talking about just half of the film!

Madhureeta Mukherjee, Times of India: Rating: 3.5 stars
But beware; GOW is not for the weak-hearted. So, hold on to your guns, gamchas and 'womaniyas'.

Saibal Chatterjee, NDTV: Rating: 3.5 stars
Gangs of Wasseypur is a heavyweight knockout punch. You’re down for the count!

Vivek Bhatia, Filmfare: Rating: 3 stars
A riveting gangster-drama which leaves you wanting for more

Nandini Krishnan, Sify:
Packs a punch!

Deborah Young, The Hollywood Reporter:
A dizzying explosion of an Indian gangster film, whose epic structure and colorful, immoral killers capture the imagination for over five hours.

Maggie Lee, Variety:
"Gangs of Wasseypur" is a brilliant collage of genres, by turns pulverizing and poetic in its depiction of violence.

Taran Adarsh, Bollywood Hungama: Rating: 3.5 stars
GANGS OF WASSEYPUR symbolizes the fearless new Indian cinema that shatters the clich├ęs and conventional formulas, something which Anurag Kashyap has come to be acknowledged for.

Blessy Chettiar, DNA India: Rating: 3.5 stars
Even though there’s so much going for GOW I, there’s something always amiss, something that leaves you underwhelmed after all those expectations.

Raja Sen, Rediff: Rating: 2.5 stars
Kashyap gets flavour, setting and character right, but the lack of economy cripples the film. There is a lot of gunfire, but like the fine actors populating its sets, Wasseypur fires too many blanks.

Rajeev Masand: Rating: 3.5 stars
Despite its occasionally indulgent narrative, this bullet-ridden saga is worthy of a repeat viewing, if only to catch all its nuances. Don’t miss it.

Anupama Chopra, Hindustan Times: Rating: 3 stars
Gangs of Wasseypur is by turns absorbing and frustrating. Watching it feels like gorging on too much good food, leaving you feeling more exhausted than satiated. But there is enough in the sound and fury to enjoy.
