Remember the days when all our directors could think of was to show love in different ways? The times they are a changing, they say and so are the directors. Guess what? Even we as an audience are more than open to this changing scene! Check out these film makers who are here to make a mark with their story telling skills!
1. Shoojit Sircar
With films like Piku, October, Vicky Donor and Madras Cafe to his name, Shoojit Sircar gave the word versatile a new meaning. This particular director has not only managed to please his fans, but also creates a balance between the critics as well!
2. Dibaker Banerjee
Banerjee gave us a film that we can never get tired of watching, a film about Delhi and based in Delhi – Khosla Ka Ghosla. Nobody could think a film so simple could go on to become a classic. After that, Banerjee experimented with several films, like Oye Lucky Lucky Oye and Shanghai. All of these stood out in their own ways. Banerjee’s films work as well as they do because of the strong sense of realism that comes with them.
3. Anurag Kashyap
Anurag Kashyap is hands down my favourite director. With films like of Gangs for Wasseypur to Dev D, Kashyap always gives us films that strike a balance between the two sides of the world! With more than a handful of loyal audience, Kashyap has never disappointed!
4. Vikas Bahl
Remember the film Queen? Vikas Bahl proved his worth as a director through this movie. He had a story and he told with grace, passion and sensitivity. The movie is praised for years after its release, letting people know Bahl is a director here to stay and slay!
5. Reema Kagti
A true story teller, Reema Kagti makes us proud. With films like Talaash and Honeymoon Travels Pvt. Ltd. to her name, Kagti made her presence felt. A director not scared of breaking boundaries, Kagti barged head on and never looked back!
With the world changing and India as a country growing, our directors are realising the importance of making films with hard hitting stories and we as an audience, are more than ready to wake up! If you think we missed out on any directors like this, comment and let us know!
