Barfi To Stories By Rabindranath Tagore, 5 Anurag Basu Movies Every Film Fanatic Must Watch

-

One of the most underrated filmmakers in Bollywood, Anurag Basu has delivered stories that were probably way ahead of their times. It was the simplicity of the stories and the complexity of the characters that made these films interesting to watch. For the unversed, some of his best works are Bollywood movies like Life In A Metro, Ludo, Barfi, and more.

As Anurag Basu turns 53, here are some of his best movies that every film fanatic must watch.

1. Life In A Metro - 2007

Truly one of the most underrated movies, Life In A Metro revolves around nine characters whose lives are entangled with each other's fate as they set out to find love and success. The music, the storyline, the direction, and the acting was beyond an ordinary mainstream cinematic work.


The movie features Shilpa Shetty, Kay Kay Menon, Shiney Ahuja, Konkana Sen Sharma, Kangana Ranaut, Irrfan Khan, Sharman Joshi, and more in pivotal roles.

2. Jagga Jasoos - 2017

Though the movie was a disaster at the box office, Jagga Jasoos is one of the goofiest, most light-hearted movies. The story is about a self-proclaimed detective and an enthu-cutlet journalist who set out on an adventure to find the former's father. It is headlined by Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif.

3. Barfi! - 2012

Speaking of some incredible storytelling and complex characters, what can be a better example than Barfi? This Anurag Basu directorial beautifully captures happiness, pain, heartbreak, love, friendship, and every emotion in between. What happens when a mischievous deaf man (Ranbir Kapoor) meets two women - Shruti (Ileana D'Cruz), his first love, and Jhilmil (Priyanka Chopra) whom he looks after and spends the rest of his life with?

Fun fact about Barfi - the filmmaker initially thought it was a mistake to cast Priyanka for the role of Jhilmil. He thought she won't be able to break her glamorous image and become an autistic girl who is quite a contradiction to the characters that the actress had previously played.

4. Murder - 2004


You can't miss this one when you think of the best Anurag Basu movies. An erotic thriller was Emraan Hashmi and Mallika Sherawat's debut movie that invited controversies and kickstarted the era of Hashmi's kisses.

5. Stories By Rabindranath Tagore - 2015

A TV series anthology directed by Basu still remains one of his finest works. He brings life to the literary works of Rabindranath Tagore. Set in the early 20th Century in West Bengal, the series is a compilation of stories likeChokher Bali, Atithi, Kabuliwala, Broken Nest, Samapti, and more.

Radio City wishes Anurag Basu a very happy birthday.
