When a film does well it's mostly the actor who gets the recognition. The director though is the unsung hero. For any film, the director is equally responsible for the hit as the actors. It's his imagination and wit which makes the story powerful. Let's look at ten such films that gave away the essence of the director.
1. A Wednesday!
Neeraj Pandey. Pandey makes films which deal with sensitive issues or real life stories. A Wednesday! was one such story, it makes us go through the life of a common man and his problems. It was only Neeraj's direction that made thise movie a blockbuster.
Ram Madhvani. Who would have thought that Bollywood's fashionista,
Sonam Kapoor could pull off such a non-glamourous look? With a clear vision, tight storyline and brilliant execution, Neerja came to life and also in the memories of all the Indians.
3. Dum Laga Ke Haisha
Directed by Sharat Katariya Dum Laga Ke Haisha indeed struck a chord all of them who had face discrimination for anything in their life. Directed by Katariya, it was a heartfelt story told with simplicity. A movie with no big names but was still able to make a mark in the industry.
Directed by Bejoy Nambiar The film was appreciated for its great music. But that should not be the only thing one looks upon. From story flows to camera techniques, Bejoy made a film which could very easily have gotten wrong.
Directed by Meghna Gulzar Let's face it, Talvar was definitely not an easy film to make. Everybody knew the case by heart till the time the movie came out. The real challenge for young Meghna was to not mix the case with her judgment.
Directed by Ritesh Batra The film started as a research for a documentary about the dabba wallahs, became a full script. The movie went on to become nominated for many prestigious awards.
7. Ae Dil Hai Mushkil
Directed by Karan Johar ADHM was not such a big directorial project which we are looking for. But Karan Johar is indeed the hero of the film, due to the controversies it had to face before the release. Johar being the driving force of making it go away.
Directed by Shoojit Sircar Sircar made a film on a topic which nobody ever imagined about. But the audience welcomed the movie with open arms. The freshness and heavy quirk were highly appreciated.
Directed by Vikas Bahl Queen has undoubtedly created another aspect of women-centric roles in the film industry. Vikas appreciated and beautifully portrayed the story of a female.
Directed by Imtiaz Ali Alia was highly appreciated for her role in Highway but let's face it, it was only Imtiaz Ali's name which made the audience come and see the film.
