Writer Shridhar Raghavan, who has written scripts for films like "Khakee" and "Dum Maaro Dum", says he loved "Gangs of Wassepur" and is waiting for the second part

"I did not like, I loved it. Congrats and awaiting the second part eagerly. Totally blown by 'Gangs of Wasseypur'. Epic, violent, poetic, visceral, dramatic & yet dark humour filled revenge saga spanning half a century," Raghavan tweeted.

A private screening of the film was organised Saturday and Raghavan also attended it. The cast of the film boasts of names like Manoj Bajpayee, director Tigmanshu Dhuila, Richa Chadda and Nawazuddin Siddiqui.

Appreciating director Anurag Kashyap and other actors, he posted: "Superbly directed and shot. Deadly performances by Bajpayee, Tigmanshu, Richa, and Nawaz. Everyone. Fabulous score, great lines."

Both parts of "Gangs Of Wasseypur" are a gritty take on the coal mafia. Releasing June 22, the movie was recently screened at the 65th Cannes International Film Festival and the premiere was houseful.
