GANGS OF WASSEYPUR [PART 1] is the first half of a two-part Hindi language drama with English subtitles. It follows the bitter and violent gang rivalry between two families, from before Indian independence up to the 21st century . It is rated 15 for strong language, violence and sex references.

The film contains frequent use of strong language ('f**k' and 'motherf**ker'). There are also strong sex references, both in the subtitled dialogue and in the lyrics of songs.

The criminal activities of the characters and their ruthless rivalry form the basis of a story in which violence breeds violence. This plays out in a series of fights, shootouts and execution killings that have a brutal tone, representative of the film's gangland setting. There is occasional sight of bloody injury in the aftermath of these violent set-pieces, but the violence does not dwell on detail and is shown as part of 'gangster business' rather than being sadistic.

The film also contains scenes of soft drug use.

No-one younger than 15 may see a 15 rated film in the cinema. No-one younger than 15 may rent or buy a 15 rated video or DVD.
