Indian film industry has tasted success in the past with small town stories based on the life of gangsters, be it Anurag Kashyap’s ‘Gangs of Wasseypur’ or ‘Mirzapur’ like webseries. Adding to the list, we can say, director Mobeen Warsi’s ‘Sitapur-The City of Gangsters’ is the return of a small town story with bang. At least now the focus of underworld stories shifted to the small town impactful gangsters stories and success of these movies or weberies clearly indicates that such concept are trending now.
The story of ‘Sitapur-The City of Gangsters’ revolves around Dev Singh Rana (Ravi Sudha Choudhary), who is a student leader but unknowingly somewhere his political journey made him a gangster. Major twist comes in his life when he takes enmity with a criminal Karan Tiwari (Gaurav Kumar), son of a powerful political leader. Dev loses his girlfriend Vaishali (Anchal Pandey) and some of his close friends in this enmity. As usual story finally leads towards a big gang war. Whatever happens at the end is the real crux of the story.
The audience can miss the known faces of Bollywood but still, actors like Ravi Sudha Choudhary, Gaurav Kumar, Anchal Pandey, Aparna Mallick, Anil Rastogi, Jitendra Dwivedi, Shalu Singh and Nawal Shukla have justified their roles in the film.
Although music does not play any important role in this film but to the larger extend the melodious music of Ali Faishal, Narendra Sinha and Raushan Pandey is quite impressive.
Overall, despite having no big faces and a decent budget, movie is quite impactful and can impress the audience who likes to watch such genre. Good to see at least once.
