THE GODFATHER by presenting a grittier, less glamorous view of Mafia life .THE GODFATHER the multi-generational crime saga based, in the parlance of organized crime, a "godfather" or "don," the head of a Mafia family. GANGS OF WASSEYPUR a mafia saga finds a strong connection with GODFATHER. THE GODFATHER trilogy criticizes the content and structure of typical Hollywood films. Similarly, GANGS has broken the stereotype and entered the new Gangster saga. WASSEYPUR-Part 2 is a fitting conclusion to this story of vengeance, which by now, not just the family but also this town has come to inherit.

Michael Corleone the don's youngest son from the GODFATHER seems like a heroic outsider battling against the corrupt system. Likewise our mafia don Faizal Khan has a parallel connection. Michael is cold-blooded, ruthless, smart, and determined. His ability to think clearly under fire, to be decisive, and to command respect makes him an excellent Godfather. It is the rise and revenge of Faizal Khan played by Nawazzudin who will take revenge for his father's and grandfather's death. The character played by Nawazuddin Siddiqui takes over his father's crime empire in Wasseypur.
