Charting seventy years in the lives – and spectacular deaths – of two mafia-like families fighting for control of the coal-mining town of Wasseypur, India. Beginning with the bandit-like career of Shahid Khan in the 1940s, the film follows the ruthless rise of his son Sardar and his offspring.

Our take

Indian director Anurag Kashyap’s two-part gangster epic left us stunned at its premiere in the Cannes’ Directors’ Fortnight: equal parts Battles without Honor and Humanity and low key Martin Scorsese (his long-time editor, Thelma Schoonmaker edited Kashyap’s latest film). Part 2 to come!
