The Anurag Kashyap directorial Gangs of Wasseypur was selected by the British daily The Guardian to be listed in their 100 Best Films of the 21st Century.  The film bagged the 59th position.

The Guardian described the movie as a “mammoth two part Indian crime film” and compared it to Hollywood’s famous cult film The Godfather.  The Paul Thomas Anderson directorial There Will Be Blood ranked number one on the list.

Anurag Kashyap, who was honoured by the achievement, did not agree with the list entirely.  He took to social media to pen down his thoughts about the ranking and wrote, “So many films which are my favourites can’t be below my film.. And ”The Dark Knight” deserves to be way up. The number 1 film in the list I totally agree with. That’s my absolute favourite of the 21st century.

He also said Gangs of Wasseypur totally destroyed his filmmaking career by raising the expectations of the audience from Kashyap as a filmmaker.

Gangs of Wasseypur was a two part crime film based on the coal mafia in Dhanbad and the power struggle between three crime families.  The movie was loved by the audience and has a 96 % approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
