Many might don't know about this movie but it's Kashyap's one of the finest works which are available for the audience to watch. Staying true to its title, this crime-thriller as it ends highlights the ugliness of the characters running the script.

#4 Dev D (2009)
If you have closely watched Kashyap's movies, they are usually starting from something familiar but eventually takes an interesting turn, making people speechless and crazy.

The story is incredibly carried forward along with the awesome and mesmerizing soundtrack by Amit Trivedi which adds the cherry on the cake.
#3 Black Friday (2004)
Kashyap's Black Friday is completely based on Hussain Zaidi's book which revolves around the 1993 Bombay blasts. The explosions were primarily planned as retaliation for communal violence in Bombay against Muslims during the phase from December 1992 to January 1993. Based on a sensitive and charged subject manner, the movie was initially banned which later got lifted after 20 months.
#2 Gulaal (2009)
Gulaal is Kashyap's sociopolitical but less indulgent work which has been appreciated by both the national and international audiences. In fact, even the critics have really liked this project which gave more popularity to the director along with the actors associated with the movie. Revolving around cultural imperialists and hypocrites, the movie is a multi-layered one along with multi-characters, instigating violence and hatred.
#1 Gangs Of Wasseypur (2012)
Gangs Of Wasseypur is a five-hour-long magnum which is definitely the best work of Anurag Kashyap till date. Kashyap has probably made this movie in the best possible manner, dividing it into 7 decades. He has used the novel-style storytelling which deals with the politics, family legacy, revenge, romance, cultural strife and so on. The ambition with which Kashyap made this movie is just spectacular, going into deeper routes of the gangster thriller genre. Additionally, actors associated in this movie are way beyond call, that has probably given their best performances till the date.
