We’ve all seen Gangs Of Wasseypur, and we all know it to be a well-made movie, which has a beautiful way of character development. The story is about the animosity between the different generations. On one side we had the Khans and on the other side, we had the Singh’s and the Qureshis. Well here are the family trees from both the sides just to freshen up your memory.
The Singhs and The Qureshis
Now that our memories have been freshened up, let’s talk about Asgar Khan, the bro and wingman to Sardar Khan. He was there for our protagonist since childhood. He was a great friend to Sardar Khan by being both his brother and his wingman.
These are the reason we think Asgar Khan was the ultimate Bro/Wingman:
He was with Sardar Khan since their childhood
Being there with Sardar Khan throughout their childhood and adulthood, helping him in different situations, Asgar Khan surely gives us bro goals.
Helps planning revenge against Ramadhir Singh
Knowing full well, how important it was for Sardar Khan to extract revenge from Ramadhir Singh, Asgar wholeheartedly helped our protagonist in planning and plotting the revenge.
Agrees to go to jail
Knowing how important it is for Sardar Khan to get revenge from Ramadhir Singh for killing his father, Shahid Khan, Asgar slaps the legislator in the S.P. Office itself, and also boasts that “Vidhayak JP Singh ko koot diye…SP..ay office me… aur oo bhi uske baap ke saamne..” while entering the jail.
Helps ease things between Sardar Khan and his wife Nagma
After escaping from the jail, and hiding in Wasseypur, Sardar Khan meets Durga and marries her. Knowing full well, that this will hurt Sardar Khan’s first wife Nagma, he tried to ease things between them.
Takes down the pehelwan with Sardar Khan
When a girl comes to Sardar Khan, complaining about being terrorised by a few hooligans. Even after knowing the consequences of killing the guy, Asgar helps Sardar Khan without a second thought.
Goes alone to fight for Sardar Khan
While Sardar Khan is getting the guns prepared, Asgar goes on to fight alone. Even though he is unable to do any damage, this guy sure knows a few things about the bro code.
Doesn’t say a word about who threw the rocks on Durga’s door
When he notices Durga running furiously after two young kids, he instantly knows who they are, however, he still keeps mum and does not dwell out any information about them to Durga.
Helps Sardar Khan in running the business
Apart from being a great friend, Asgar also becomes a great partner for Sardar Khan and helps him manage and expand his business.
Now these were the reasons, why we think Asgar Khan was the ultimate bro/wingman
There still remains the other side of the argument, was he really always that great a friend?
The following are the reasons we think Asgar Khan might now be the best bro/wingman:
He allows his friend to cheat on his wife
He knows that Sardar Khan is married to Nagma Khan, and when in hiding, Sardar Khan starts to flirt with Durga, he turns a blind eye, while also not putting up a valid argument to stop his friend from continuing this.
Not being there with his friend in the most crucial moment
Asgar as we know, was with Sardar Khan throughout his life, from childhood to adulthood, he was there with him at every point of life, always being with Sardar Khan like his shadow. And what was the one moment he wasn’t, you ask? It was the moment Sardar Khan died, yes, the one moment Sardar Khan could have needed Asgar Khan the most, he wasn’t there with him.
Well, these were the only two moments we could think of when Asgar Khan was not the best bro/wingman to Sardar Khan, all in all, he was a cool bro.
What do you think?
Was Asgar Khan the ultimate Bro/Wingman?
Or is it someone else?
