THIS is Dibakar Banerjee, director of Shanghai, on Gangs of Wasseypur, the other ‘gritty’ film making waves at the box office. “Gangs… is a non-stop indulgence, like an insane party. It is truly one of the biggest guilty pleasures for life. Too see Indian male sex machines in gamchas and chewing datun while a luscious bhabi drools over him, to see a bullet-riddled body take 30 seconds to die while the sun blinds your eyes, and the music, which contrasts so dementedly with everything…it’s like eating one-to-one rice-mutton ratio. I want to chew on it till juices run down my chin”.
What a totally creepy thing to say and it’s got nothing to do with the dicey grammar, but everything to do with its demented tone. Oye Banerjee, spare us your demented private fantasies. Never heard of the phrase, “Too much information?”
