‘Gangs Of Wasseypur’ makes it to Intl. Cinephile Society’s 100 Best Films.


The International Cinephile Society (ICS) has published its list of the 100 best films of the decade, and filmmaker Anurag Kashyap’s Gangs of Wasseypur is the only Indian film to make it to the list. It was awarded the 58th position on the list.

Star cast of the film includes Manoj Bajpayee, Nawazuddin Siddiqi, Richa Chadha, Huma Qureshi, Rajkummar Rao, Vineet Kumar, Piyush Mishra, Tigmanshu Dhulia, among others. The two-part crime thriller was released in 2012. Set in the town of Wasseypur in Dhanbad district of Jharkhand, the film follows the story of a coal-mining mafia family.

Interestingly, eight out of the top films were directed by non-American filmmakers. While Kenneth Lonergan’s 2011 epic drama Margaret made it to the top, Bong Joon-Ho’s recent Oscar winner Parasite earned the 25th position on the list.

Gangs of Wasseypur was awarded the 59th position in The Guardian’s list of top 100 best films of the 21st century published last year also, and was the only Indian film to make it. Anurag Kashyap had taken to Instagram to share the moment.
