Happy birthday Vidhu Vinod Chopra: 10 movies which prove he is a master of filmmaking

Vidhu Vinod Chopra is one filmmaker who has preferred to move against the flow. When Bollywood was going gaga over love stories, he gave us a romantic tale set in the backdrop of the Independence movement in the form of 1942: A Love Story. Just when a newcomer called Hrithik Roshan was establishing his foot in films as a romantic-actor star, Chopra signed him to play a terrorist in Mission Kashmir. He even gave us the first blockbuster franchise of Bollywood – Munna Bhai MBBS. He gave us Vidya Balan in Parineeta, and VVC even gave us landmark films like 3 Idiots and PK which pointed fingers on some existing stereotypes in society.

A close look at Chopra’s filmography will reveal that every film he produced or directed, has gone on to sweep the top categories at every awards function, with most of his work becoming box office hits too. VVC doesn’t not follow the footsteps of banners like Yash Raj Films, Dharma Productions or even Phantom. He knows his way and has kept his loyal audience hooked for years now.

As this maverick producer-director turns 65 today, we take a glance at the films he has offered us, and why each one is a gift to Bollywood.
