DELIGHTFUL TAKE ON A GRITTY FILM
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.
