THE MAGIC OF YASH CHOPRA – 7 FILMS YOU JUST CANNOT MISS
With a career panning over 50 years with 50 films, 6 National Film Awards and 11 Filmfare Awards, Yash Chopra is the undoubted King of Romance. He taught an entire generation how to love!
If you’re in the mood for a romantic movie and want to experience Bollywood in all its grandeur, here are some Yash Chopra films that you just cannot miss.
If one was to believe it, this film did not do well at the box office. This love triangle with its iconic songs such as ‘Dekha Ek Khwab‘ and ‘Main Aur Meri Tanhayi‘ has achieved a cult status amongst the audience.
From the gorgeous sarees to the sparkling chemistry between Sridevi and Rishi Kapoor, and the exotic locations – the movie is definitely a visual treat! An ever memorable movie, the icing on the cake was the intense role played by Vinod Khanna. This film was a box office blockbuster and is one of the most watched films of its time.
A love story that transcends generations, Kabhi Kabhie was the second directorial film of Yash Chopra with Amitabh Bachchan and Shashi Kapoor in lead roles. The movie is particularly noted for its Khyyam compositions and ranked as one of the favourites of the man himself.
This was the first time Shah Rukh Khan was cast in a Yash Chopra film. This iconic film launched SRK as the anti-hero. With his classic portrayal of the obsessed lover, SRK redefined the image of the conventional hero with this film.
Dil To Pagal Hai
One of the most romantic films made by Yash Chopra, this musical romantic comedy created ripples in the industry with the awards, accolades and appreciation that it received. From the cheerful and carefree Nisha to the homely and coy Pooja, each character was refined and beautified to the core both in the script and the performances.
This cross-border love story marked the return of Yash Chopra to direction after a gap of 7 years. Love, separation, courage and scarifies, this saga embodied every single facet of love in its grandest scale possible. From the sets to the music to the locations all elements were larger than life.
While this was not essentially a romantic movie, no mention of Yash Chopra’s films can ever be complete without Deewaar. This was one of his most iconic movies and gave us the dialogue “Mere Paas Ma Hai”. Deewaar introduced Amitabh Bachchan to us as the ‘Angry Young Man’. This story about two brothers was a ground-breaking film. It received the Filmfare Best Film Award in 1975 in addition to 6 other awards and was declared a super hit.
