‘Gangs of Wasseypur’ makes it to top 100 films of the 21st century

BOLLYWOOD: Anurag Kashyap’s two-part crime drama Gangs Of Wasseypur is still flying high after making it to The Guardian‘s list of 100 Best Films of the 21st century.

Although the popular film secured 59th place, the film-maker wasn’t entirely happy about it being on the prestigious list, reported NDTV. “Proud to be here but this wouldn’t be my list. So many films which are my favourites can’t be below my film,” Kashyap said. In fact, he believes a Hollywood film should’ve been on there rather than the Bollywood blockbuster.

Kashyap added, “The Dark Knight deserves to be way up. The number #1 film in the list, I totally agree with. That’s my absolute favourite of the 21st century.” However, Paul Thomas Anderson’s 2007 film There Will Be Blood took the top spot.

The Guardian also wrote a glowing description of the film. “It is stylish, visceral film-making, violent and hard-hitting and it’s got a valid claim to be India’s answer to The Godfather,” the article stated.

Kashyap, however, claimed that Gangs Of Wasseypur wasn’t his best project. “That film of mine totally destroyed my filmmaking life by the expectations it sets from me as a filmmaker and has been continuously so, and I have forever been trying to break away from it. Hopefully, someday that will happen,” he wrote in an Instagram post.
