DE­LIGHT­FUL TAKE ON A GRITTY FILM

Tehelka - - 20 -

Re­fer to ‘ Guns and Glory’ by Shougat Dasgupta, 7 July. I re­cently came across your won­der­ful ar­ti­cle on Anurag Kashyap’s Gangs of Wassey­pur on TE­HELKA. I very much en­joyed read­ing your take on this film. Anurag Kashyap is an in­spi­ra­tion for me, an as­pir­ing film direc­tor my­self. He is one of the best things to have happened to mod­ern In­dian cin­ema, in my opinion. We re­ally need a break from the typ­i­cal, ar­ti­fi­cial look at sto­ries and em­brace the re­al­ity of the sit­u­a­tions and char­ac­ters. I just wanted to thank you for writ­ing such a won­der­ful re­view. We need more peo­ple who ap­pre­ci­ate th­ese kinds of films that show­case the growth and the ma­tu­rity of con­tem­po­rary Hindi cin­ema. I’m at film school in New Zealand, hop­ing to also con­trib­ute to our film in­dus­try very soon.

MANALI BHA­TIA,
