Bollywood is something that is a weekly thing for many people. There have been directors who got launched with loads of promise but soon tossed all our hopes by making horror films. For example, Vikas Bahl pleased the public with Queen but on the other hand with Shaandaar, we couldn’t believe he was the same director. Similarly, Rahul Dholakia’s Parzania made the critics to applaud the film but with Raees we couldn’t find the same connection.
Let’s look at ten such directors who started out with a lot of commitments but after that, it couldn’t live up to our expectations.
1. Madhur Bhandarkar
When he came up with Chandni Bar in 2001, the viewers and critics were totally bowled out by his talents. With Page 3 and Fashion, he became the director whose movies became a part of our to-watch film. But with Dil Toh Baccha Hai Ji and Heroine, he again made us think about our choices.
2. Ashutosh Gowariker
His back to back hit films Lagaan, Swades, and Jodhaa Akbar, Ashutosh made his stories a must-watch for the audience. But then the shocker came when What’s Your Raashee? and Mohenjo Daro released. The movies made us sad as the director is said to lose his charm.
3. Kunal Kohli
Kunal Kohli debuted as a director in the industry with Hum Tum. But with Thoda Pyaar Thoda Magic and Teri Kahaani people have tended to forget him with time.
4. Farah Khan
Farah was the queen of Bollywood with her films with SRK like Om Shanti Om and Main Hoon Na. Farah should now consider reviewing her director certificate. After Happy New Year and Tees Maar Khan, we really feel the need to take this step.
5. R. Balki
R.Balki is the same director who created a sweet love story, Cheeni Kum in the year 2007. He then came up with Paa which was a National Award Winning film. But his consequent movies like Ki & Ka and Shamitabh he failed to impress us in the same way.
6. Sanjay Gadhvi
The Dhoom series director, Sanjay gave us a series of action thriller which we love and enjoy. But, his last movie, Ajab Gazabb Love really made him look like a stereotypical filmmaker.
7. Aditya Chopra
His latest flick Befikre may have given us a shocker. But one should not forget Aditya Chopra is the same director who gave us DDLJ the iconic love story.
8. Nikhil Advani
He is the man behind Kal Ho Naa Ho. He was the only person who gave us high hopes for all his upcoming projects but with Chandni Chowk To China, D-Day, Katti Batti, and Hero he is out from our books.
9.Ram Gopal Verma
He is one of the directors who started his career with huge hits in the form of Rangeela, Bhoot, and Satya to name a few. But, now RGV is a mere butt of jokes among the audience.
10. Shaad Ali
He started his career with Saathiya and took it forward with Bunty Aur Babli but after seeing Ok Jaanu and Kill Dill, one should really be beware before going for his movie screenings.
