International Cinephile Society Announces Best Films Of Decade, 'Gangs Of Wasseypur' Only Indian Film https://t.co/rdAjL0OiND— Anurag Kashyap (@anuragkashyap72) February 20, 2020
The film is based on two families, who fight over the ownership of coal-bearing lands in Wasseypur town of Dhanbad district in Jharkhand. It has enough gunshots and blasts to keep anyone engrossed in the plotline. Furthermore, Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s eccentric role as Faizal Khan strikes the right chord with the audience.
Many reports suggested that the film not making it to the Oscars was a pity. Now that the film has made it to the hall of fame of International Cinephile Society, fans and followers are finally taking a sigh of relief.
Gangs Of Wasseypur had a massive star-cast with Manoj Bajpayee, Richa Chadha, Rajkummar Rao, Huma Qureshi, Vineet Kumar and many other critically acclaimed actors. This made the delivery of the storyline more apt as suggested by reports. The two films released back in 2012 and since then it has only received praises from its viewers.
According to reports, out of the full list of top 100, eight films were by non-American filmmakers. The film sitting in first, second and third numbers in the list are Margaret, The Tree Of Life and Holy Motors respectively. The film was a part of the list in the last year as well. Anurag Kashyap, who helmed both the versions of the films had shared the news on his Instagram.
