Tribute: Yash Chopra’s best cinematic works

A Director’s Director

We have all been touched by Yash Chopra’s cinema one way or another. If the younger generation enjoyed the intricate love tangle of Dil To Pagal Hai, their moms and pops still cherish the veteran’s old works like Deewar or Silsila.

Yash Chopra was a director’s director, a genial, soft-spoken, humble person who made light of the great contribution he’s made to Indian cinema and was quite generous with compliments for others. With his death on October 21, a vacuum has been left in the firmament of Indian cinema. He was the filmmaker who brought out the subtleties of romance, the nuances of angst, and a sense of redemption for his stories’ protagonists in a way that was not just novel for its time, but also moulded with the wisdom gathered from life.

His stories imparted a few nuggets of life’s wisdom without failing to entertain at the same time. The veteran touched upon varieties of subjects, from vicissitudes of life in Waqt (1965), to the angst of a young, life-battered atheist (Deewar), from polygamy (Daag: A Poem of Love) and extramarital affairs (Silsila), to cross-generational romance (Lamhe). Yash Chopra’s oeuvre boasts of it all and more.

Born in Lahore in 1932, Yash Chopra began his career as an assistant to I.S. Johar and worked under his elder brother B. R. Chopra before directing his first film Dhool Ka Phool in 1959.

“My mother said do what your heart says. She gave me Rs.200 and said my blessings are with you. Go ahead and don't worry,” recalled Chopra at his 80th birthday celebrated on September 27.

But success came six years later with Waqt. There was no looking back after that. The veteran’s career peaked with the slew of films he directed with Amitabh Bachchan. Failure too came in the form of the inconsequential films he directed in mid-80s, but in 1989 he returned to form again.

“When I was making 'Vijay' (in 1988), I was making films just to be successful and not from my heart and I knew I was making the wrong kind of films. I decided to make a hardcore romantic film with nine songs and this is how I thought of 'Chandni' (1989),” Yash Chopra had said at his birthday celebration.

Yash Chopra’s career as a director was perhaps the longest any filmmaker has had in Bollywood. Here’s a look at some of the most memorable films that this legend gave us.
