Gangs of Wasseypur (stylised as Gangs of वासेपुर) is a 2012 Indian two-part crime film co-written, produced and directed by Anurag Kashyap. Centered on the coal mafia of Dhanbad, and the underlying power struggles, politics and vengeance between three crime families, the film features an ensemble cast with Manoj Bajpai, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Huma Qureshi, Richa Chadda and Tigmanshu Dhulia in the major roles. Its story spans from the early 1940s to the 2000's. Both parts were originally shot as a single film measuring a total of 319 minutes and screened at the 2012 Cannes Directors' Fortnight but since no Indian theatre would volunteer to screen a five plus hour film, it was divided into two parts for the Indian market.


Kashyap plans to make another sequel, Gangs of Wasseypur 1.5 and has incorporated Zeishan Quadri as the director of the third part.
