We have grown up watching several movies over the years. Now, most of us have the ability to identify their directors without actually searching for them on Google. If it’s a dark cinema, we usually say, ‘ye toh Anurag Kashyap ki hogi’. If it’s a comedy film, we go like, ‘Priyadarshan? David Dhawan?’ If the leads in a movie are shown as confused lovers, we refer it to as an Imtiaz Ali’s directorial. Isn’t it?
That’s the basic analysis of a cinephile to judge kaunsi film kisne banayi hai. But there are movies that you won’t believe were helmed by the same directors. Twitter is discussing the same.
