Gangs of Wasseypur

Gangs of Wasseypur was unlike any of the other films we have studied in this course.  From the language to the violence, nothing was familiar to what we are accustomed to.  With that being said, I think that the violence and cruelty is necessary to convey the message that the director had hoped for.  There was one aspect of the film that stood out to me the most.  This is when the character who stood up for the workers rights, along with what he had believed in was killed.  This character was willing to risk everything for what he believed in and he ended up paying a major price.  After this man is killed for standing up for what was right, his son Sardar wants to avenge his death.  He does many bad things in order to reach his goal, and does not realize that what he is doing is just a bad as what his father was standing up for.  After doing all these things he ends up becoming very feared in the story.  The way this movie is set up and the aesthetics that the director uses helps show the audience the depiction of the struggles of these crime affiliated groups in India.
