Why I thought of making “Dream of Two Hours” ?

 

When I went to Sakal International Learning Centre to learn basic film
making. We had Chandrasekhar Joshi for making us understand, what is cinema
?

He told us because man cannot do things what he wants to do and someone in
film does that, you admire him. For sometime you think you are the hero in
film. Its like hypnotism and work well on human minds.

Films takes you to a fictional word, a fantasy world and you enjoy that
hypnotism, without understanding its just A film.

And the voice in film or say, felling or the point of view of The
protagonist is exactly same of mine.
Its my words. How I use to think and how I changed.

Its like i have shown you my part of life.

I was desperately trying to make this film from 4-5 months after the
lectures in SILC.

It will be wrong to say Chandrasekhar Joshi inspired me to make film, but i
would say, He told us how we all look at films and fails to understand
reality.

Dreams of Two Hours is my own experience with films.

Why “Dil Se” flopped ?

Dil se is not a flop film I say.
It had had a. Great story and great performance by Manish Koirala and Shahrukh. The film is dark.

The only reason I see why film wana flop because it confused the audience. They couldn’t figure out if it was an art film or a commercial film. Dil se really confuses people at this point.

If we remove All songs from Dil se and only focus on the story or its treatment. No double its a hardcore + hard hitting art film. There was not need of songs in the film. Because of song, singing and dancing it looks like a commercial movie.

I guess Mr. Mani Ratnam was confused if he was making an art film or a masala film.

The film also had good looking glamorous actors which gives confusing signals.

Conclusion : Dil se without songs is a great film. 

Worst Bollywood Directors

15. Apoorva Lakhia

Yes, he has done one good movie, that is Shootout At Lokhandwala which in my opinion is one of the most gripping crime dramas in recent times. However, he has directed some rather forgettable films apart from that. He has always managed to get a good starcast for his films, but isn’t able to utilise their talent with poor storylines and bad writing not helping his case. He has given duds like Dus Kahaaniyan, Ek Ajnabee, Mission Istanbul, one of the most pointless and genuinely disgusting remakes Zanjeer and his latest outing Haseena too not finding favour with the audiences.All these movies had some potential to turn out great, but failed because of some horrible direction. Personally, I think Haseena could have been saved if he had chosen a competent actress to do the part, but that movie too had its flaws.

14. Vivek Agnihotri

Another director, who tries to experiment but fails big time. Having made his debut with Chocolate ,which wasn’t a bad film in my opinion, he went on to make Dhan Dhana Dhan Goal, which was a very melodramatic attempt at showing Indian life in London combined with some football. Though Hate Story was a hit when it released, it was evident that this was an attempt to use sex to sell the movie.Take out that and you can see how poorly directed the film was.He also directed Buddha in A Traffic Jam,which is probably his best outing so far and was a very intriguing film in my opinion, but it was a one-off, seeing how bad his other films were.

13. Sohail Khan

What is this man doing in Bollywood? He is one of the most crass and cheap actors I’ve ever seen and when he tried his hand at direction, he achieved nothing there as well. He has made one good film Pyaar Kiya Toh Darna Kya, but that’s about it.He directed the Pay It Forward remake Jai Ho and even ardent Salman Khan fans could not help but criticise the film for its overt melodrama and senseless direction. Though it had a noble concept, there was just mindless action and utterly stupid writing. He failed to utilise one of India’s most skilled actors Nawazuddin Siddique too as Freaky Ali turned out to be a flop as well. He should just support Salman and not try his hand at direction anymore. The audience cannot take so much nonsense!

12. Goldie Behl

The director of Drona, The guy who put us through two and a half hours of sheer torture. One of the lowest ranked Bollywood movies on IMDb, Drona was one of the most boring movies I have ever been made to sit through. For those who haven’t watched it, THANK YOUR STARS! This movie clearly showed that how far behind India is when it comes to fantasy movies, lacking acting, directions, costumes and effects.

11. Anubhav Sinha

He has a made a decent movie or two, but that doesn’t spare this guy from being on this list. He made Tum Bin, which was a genuinely good movie and earned a cult status in the following years and he made Dus which I found enjoyable despite its flaws and some terrible acting. But he has wasted some really good acting talent in his movies like RA.One (Shah Rukh Khan and Kareena Kapoor), Gulaab Gang (Juhi Chawla and Madhuri Dixit) and Cash (Ajay Devgn). All these movies could have been good but were let down by poor writing and direction.RA.One could have been the superhero movie India needed to show to the world. But it turned out to be the movie we didn’t need.Pity. He also made the sequel to Tum Bin this year, which was out of the theatres at 10 times the speed it came.

10. Shaad Ali

For a man who started out as an assistant director to Mani Ratnam, you would expect some really good quality work from him. And Shaad Ali did give that to us in the start by making two really entertaining movies Saathiya and Bunty aur Babli. What went wrong after that? He made the colossal disaster Jhoom Barabar Jhoom where he tried to gather an ensemble cast but unfortunately for him none of them could draw in the crowd because the movie was itself very mediocre. He repeated the same mistake with Kill Dil, a big cast but a terrible film, one of the worst to be released in that year. He decided to return to his comfort zone by making Ok Jaanu.Though it was sweet and had brilliant chemistry between Aditya Roy Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor, people didn’t like it as much as its Tamil counterpart Ok Kanmani.

9. Ashwini Dhiir

The amount of senseless comedies Bollywood churns out every year, some stand out for being worse than the worst. This man is responsible for some of them.His debut feature One Two Three, a comedy of errors, was funny in parts but didn’t do really well. His next Atithi Tum Kab Jaoge? is one of the most over the top, loud and irritating comedies in the recent past. He tasted a lot of success with Son of Sardaar, another loud irritating comedy. His latest feature Guest in London opened to horrible reviews.

8. Sabbir Khan

The man who has directed Tiger Shroff in all the movies he has acted in till now. He started his career with the movie Kambakhthh Ishq which had created so much hype for having Sylvester Stallone, Denise Richards and other famous Hollywood actors in cameos.But not even Hollywood A-list stars could save this disaster. His next 3 films, Heropanti , Baaghi, Munna Michael were okay but offered nothing new and were absolutely mediocre.

7. Satish Kaushik

Satish Kaushik is a brilliant actor, no doubt about that. His comic timing has given us some hilarious moments in films. But he should just stick to acting. Direction isn’t his forte. He made Tere Naam, where he gave Salman one of the best characters he could ever play. But that is it. He has made some terrible movies like the Himesh Reshamiya remake Karzzzzzzzz where only the zzzzz was applicable because that represented the audience sleeping in the theatre. He tried to bring the audience back by promoting his next film Milenge Milenge as the movie which Shahid and Kareena did after their breakup, but it tanked. He directed the remake of Juno which again did horribly.

.6. Harry Baweja

Harry Baweja is the man who gave Bollywood Harman Baweja. I think that in itself is a valid reason to hate him. But talking about his filmography, he too hasn’t given any really good movies worth remembering. He has made many movies which are really forgettable like Dilwale,Qayamat,Main Aisa Hi Hoon,the very forgettable Love Story 2050 which launched Harman Baweja. That movie was so badly made that you could clearly see it was just an attempt to make Harman Baweja known. And that also did not do well.

5. Indra Kumar

Indra Kumar has no doubt made some really good movies in the early stages of his career. Movies like Dil, Ishq,Beta all won a lot of acclaim from the audience and were really enjoyable as well. He redefined sex comedies in India with Masti, which was hilarious. Even Dhamaal was very entertaining. But Indra Kumar’s case is a case of continuing a series just relying on the predecessor’s success. Masti was great. Grand Masti was crass and had some really cringe worthy scenes but it still joined the 100 crore club. There were already signs that a third movie in the series is uncalled for. But yet, Great Grand Masti came out. And it did horribly. Though it had leaked a few days before, the movie in itself was so terrible that it clearly would have flopped anyways. He made this mistake with Double Dhamaal too, because Dhamaal was funny but the sequel was so crass, loud and terrible that it ruined the goodwill of the first one as well.

4. Prabhu Deva

All the die hard Prabhu Deva fans, please read before you vent out your anger. He is no doubt a brilliant dancer and has directed some good movies down South, but in Bollywood he has made some really terrible ones.Wanted, his debut film, and Rowdy Rathore were still enjoyable though illogical, but R….Rajkumar, Action Jackson, Singh is Bliing? Who can explain that? If anybody ever needs proof of how horrible these movies are, I would like to describe one scene from Action Jackson that scarred me for life. There is a scene where Sonakshi Sinha by mistake sees Ajay Devgan’s manhood and suddenly gets a promotion. So she believes it is good luck and starts following him to try and see it again. WTF. Please Prabhu Deva, stick to dancing in movies. Don’t do this to our dear Bollywood.

3. Shirish Kunder

When the two most notable things you have done in your life is getting into a fight with SRK and getting married to Farah Khan, you know whats going wrong. He debuted with Jaan-e-Mann, which had Salman and Akshay Kumar in the lead. What could go wrong? Everything. The movie was such a sad melodramatic, sloppily written movie that it didn’t hold a candle to Farhan Akhtar’s Don which released on the same day. He followed it up with Joker. With a rating of 2.6 on IMDb, I don’t really have to say anything else. However you cant blame him because No. 1 and No.2 on this list are both related to him. So making terrible films runs in the family.

2. Farah Khan

Ahh well the top 2 directors on this list should feature in a horror film which has something to do with evil siblings. Because their movies are really scary to sit through. Farah Khan is still fine because she has done Main Hon Na, which though wasn’t path breaking, it managed to gain acclaim and was enjoyable. Same with Om Shanti Om which was an out-and-out masala movie. However after that she made Tees Maar Khan. WHY!!!! Why did I sit through it? I think if I had to write my own version of Chetan Bhagat’s Three Mistakes of my life, this would be one of them. Loud, crass, over-the-top, cheap, that movie was terrible. It hurt to see such a talented comedy actor like Akshay Kumar lose his mind in such a movie. And then she made Happy New Year. That movie was senseless on all levels. It had such a good cast but a movie about a gang of thieves who want to rob a vault take part in a dancing competition? Nah, not my cup of tea.

1. Sajid Khan

How is this man smiling after making us go through so much? The hands down Numero Uno when it comes to this list, when we think this man can’t stoop to lower levels, he does. Every single movie. He started out with Darna Zaroori Hai which was like a warning for his remaining movies.He then started the Housefull series of which the first movie was funny. Housefull 2 was funny but too confusing to try and make sense of it. Housefull 3 was just disgusting and was an insult to the senses.And he decided to remake Himmatwala. When the worst director in Bollywood decides to remake an iconic movie(read:Ram Gopal Verma Ki Aag) , it is gonna have a disastrous result. Disastrous it was. That movie was an insult to cinema. And the icing on the cake: Humshakals. That movie has a rating on 1.8 on IMDb. And seeing the lead actors cross-dressing has to be one of the most scarring movie experiences, the terrible writing and one-liners notwithstanding.
