Gangs of Wasseypur (stylised as Gangs of वासेपुर) is a 2012 Indian two-part crime film co-written, produced and directed by Anurag Kashyap. Centered on the coal mafia of Dhanbad, and the underlying power struggles, politics and vengeance between three crime families, the Part 1 features ensemble cast with Manoj Bajpai, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Huma Qureshi, Richa Chadda, Tigmanshu Dhulia in the major roles and its story spans from the early 1940s to mid-1990s and then to 2000's. Both parts were originally shot as a single film measuring a total of 319 minutes and screened at the 2012 Cannes Directors' Fortnight but since no Indian theatre would volunteer to screen a five plus hour film, it was divided into two parts for the Indian market.
