A movie is a vision of its director. He is the soul and heart of the movie.
There are different kinds of Director, everyone has their own limitations and comfort zone. some shows relationships conflicts, some show reality, bring changes, represents the society, some make people laugh and then there are directors who are beyond limitations, they very beautifully shows every above element along with a social message to its audience.
That one such director in our industry is Rajkumar Hirani. Over more than a decade he has directed just 4 films. But those four films have changed the way movies are made and had a huge impact on our society.
In a very cult comical way, he gave us Munnabhai M.B.B.S the movie told us about the very basic things in our life and how often we neglect them. How a degree is not the only way to save a life. Ultimately it is love which we need, to be alive. It was the first installment of Munna Bhai and Circuit and they just stamped our hearts with their chemistry. We are still waiting for third installment – “MunnaBhai Chale Amrika”
Lage Raho Munnabhai
Who would have thought where in the country of India where most of the youth started hating the ideologies of Mahatma Gandhi due impractical nature of it, A director will take chance to revive it through a new twist to it. His next venture made us go back to the time and understand the real meaning of Gandhism and how today we have forgotten its relevance in today’s time and yes, there is nothing which non-violence cannot solve. Humanity, respect for all human being is above all. The best part of the film was the moment when Munna realizes that Gandhi is not real but it’s his imagination. At this very moment, Raju Hirani brilliantly establishes the fact that we don’t need magic or miracles, we just need to understand Gandhi and his philosophy and adapt it to the modern times.
His third directorial was 3 idiots, it is not just a movie, it is a lesson, it is life in itself. A movie which showed the problem of the young Indian generation, the loopholes in the education system and how we perceive engineer and doctors to be everything. Teacher, students, and parents of all generations should not dare to miss this.
His last movie as a director was pk, again a widely acclaimed and a controversial movie. It told how in name of the religion we have divided ourselves and have allowed some people to rule us, make it as a business. The movie made us realize that it is high time we should use logic and question our faith before we have faith on it.
From “Jaddu Ki Jhappi” to “Gandhigiri”. From “All is well” to “yeh wrong number hai”, Rajkumar Hirani movies gave us the life fundas in the most entertaining yet impressive ways . They have everything, a story with a social message, music, and great characters. Munna Bhai, Circuit, Rancho and PK. There are very few people who have the art to showcase everything in 3 hours and even help us ponder, change ourselves for better us.
Thank You Mr. Hirani for providing Bollywood classical cinema. Happy Birthday sir!
