Presented by Adi Shankar, Producer of A WALK AMONG THE TOMBSTONES, DREDD and THE GREY. From the producer of THE LUNCHBOX (the most successful foreign-language movie of 2014), this is Indian cinema's answer to Coppola's, THE GODFATHER and Sergio Leone's ONCE UPON A TIME IN AMERICA. It begins with the bandit-like career of Shahid Khan (Jaideep Ahlawat) in the 1940s and follows the ruthless rise of his son Sardar, (Manoj Bajpayee) as he competes against the all-powerful mob boss Ramadhir Singh (Tigmanshu Dhulia). GANGS mirrors the tumultuous and explosive growth of modern India with the ferocious cinematic intensity of Scorsese's MEAN STREETS and GOODFELLAS. Composer Sneha Khanwalkar's stunning soundtrack ranks with the best of legends like R.D. Burman, but don't expect Bollywood-style dance numbers: this is a movie that up-ends every expectation of what great Indian cinema should look like. A selection of the Sundance Film Festival and Director's Fortnight, Cannes Film Festival.
