While there have been a fair share of amazing shows to have released in 2019, HBO's Chernobyl definitely stands somewhere near the top. In fact, Chernobyl also stands out as one of those shows where the cinematography was nothing short of brilliant - all thanks to the genius of Jakob Ihre.
While Jakob Ihre is no stranger to great work, what comes as a surprise for us Bollywood lovers is that he also shot for Shoojit Sircar's directorial debut, Yahaan - something that filmmaker Vikramaditya Motwane pointed out in his tweet.
Did you know that Jakob Ihre, the brilliant cinematographer of Chernobyl, also shot ...Yahaan, @ShoojitSircar’s debut?— Vikramaditya Motwane (@VikramMotwane) July 13, 2019
Yahaan was characterized by truly beautiful imagery, where it felt that Kashmir came alive with the story, all thanks to Jakob Ihre. Twitterati was left pleasantly surprised by this little tidbit of information.
Yahaan's movement and light are etched in my memory. I don't think anything or anyone captured those nights, that water and their conflict so brilliantly ever before in Film. 'Naam adaa likhnaa' silences my brain till date.— Pawan Janakiram (@pawankj) July 13, 2019
Really? What a great film that was. That silent romance, soulful music, Kashmir and Jimmy Shergill. It can’t get better.— Nilanjana Sengupta (@Nilanjanas20) July 13, 2019
