Before going to bed last night, after watching GOW 2, I told a friend of mine that I really wanted to dream of hugs, kisses and puppies. I cant remember now if I did but thats better than waking up in the middle of the night to hanging heads, bulleted bodies, blood, gore, guns okay Ill stop. It wasnt as though I wasnt expecting this. I was. Part 1 and the trailers/teasers for GOW 2 prepared me for it. And though I may have had my hands ready to cover my eyes through the movie, it was one movie I wouldnt have missed for the world. IT WAS INCREDIBLE. So incredible that Ill probably be back in a theater watching the two parts back to back sometime this week.
My review started a little dramatically, but there is more to the film than violence. I loved Faizal Khans chemistry with his wife. Actually, I loved Faizal Khan (Nawazuddin Siddiqui) in general. Period. He was funny. Got stoned in style (which if youre a stoner, or were a stoner, youll find hard to keep watching for 2.5 hours), apparently awesome in bed, great with guns, great with the family basically a badass. The other characters too, especially Perpendicular and Definite played their roles really well.
The story has a twist. Or many actually. And if you struggle with Hindi you may take a little longer to finally get in the loop of whats going on. The direction is superb. Script even better. Music out of this world Dil Chhi Chha Ledar still stuck in my head. And so is Nawazuddin Siddiqui, what an incredibly talented (and good looking) man.
Dont miss GOW 2.
