Among the vast number of directors who have really made Bollywood proud, Imtiaz Ali is one of them. His movies are mainly regarded as a travelogue, or the story unfolds with travelling. The characters are so real that you can almost relate them and through them, he creates a magical and dreamlike world. The most important thing is that Imtiaz gives us motivation and fill our lives with positivity through his films.
- Socha Na Tha
This was Imtiaz Ali’s debut film and when you watch the movie, you can feel the freshness that comes with the love story. The film starts with a marriage being arranged between the lead pair Abhay Deol and Ayesha Takia and the confusion in their heart that follows thereafter. The movie tells you not to confine yourself within societal boundaries and family expectations but do whatever you want.
- Jab We Met
This was the movie which made Imtiaz one of India’s best directors overnight. The movie starring Kareena Kapoor as Geet and Shahid Kapoor as Aditya gives us a lot to learn. It tells us to take risks, do the unpredictable as life is itself unexpected and why to take your own decisions because it leaves no room for regret at the end.
Highway starring Alia Bhatt and Randeep Hooda in the lead narrates the story of Veera who is wrongly kidnapped by Mahadev and his gang. Veera and Mahadev both are broken souls and find completion in each other’s company. The movie tells you a great deal of how you can leave behind the societal demons and accept what you are.
Rockstar starring Ranbir shows you that in order to create something you need to undergo heartbreak and failure.
The movie starring Deepika Padukone and Ranbir Kapoor unfolds beautifully like a story told through myriad dreams. It is a film for all those who have given their 100% to fit into the society but failed miserably. The movie says that reality will give you a hard smack on your face but still you can retain your unique identity and self.
