Ayan Mukherjee is the new change in Bollywood. First of all, his films are a brilliant combination of commerce and content. At first, he was the AD for Ashutosh Gowariker in the movie, Swades. Then he joined Karan Johar for his movie, Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna.
Wake Up Sid- His first directorial debut:
As a result, he directed his first movie, Wake Up Sid. This is a coming -of age movie, starring Ranbir Kapoor and Konkona Sen Sharma as the lead actors. First of all, the movie shows Ranbir Kapoor as a lazy guy. He gets everything easily in life. He has two best friends. Also he loves photography. The movie also tries to portray Sid (Ranbir Kapoor) and his friendship with two other people. When he fails his exams but his friends gets through, he is shown as being jealous. Ayan Mukherjee has shown everything that we experience in our daily lives. He has combined commercial as well as critical aspects equally.
Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani:
This movie focuses on every single aspects that are needed in a film. The film is commercially successful because of adding all the hit songs, the top actors and the fun dialogues. Secondly, it also shows the realities of every Indian families. Deepika’s (Deepika Padukone) character is shown as a studious girl who always obeys her parents. However her extreme obedience makes her frustrated. She gets fed up with her “boring” life and escapes to join a travel group.
On the other hand, Ranbir Kapoor, Siddharth Roy Kapoor and Kalki Koechlin, are the popular cool buddies. They are already a part of the travel team to the Himalayas. It was a coincidence that they met Deepika who was actually their classmate in the school days. Deepika’s character as a shy girl and the other three as cool are a perfect combination. The film shows different emotional turmoils faced by each of the characters and also on their love lives.
Ayan Mukherjee has done a brilliant job of combining both the elements in his two movies that has seen such a success both commercially and critically. Restricting only to one element is good but it will be difficult for every kind of people to relate to. Since movies are all about entertainment, lets enjoy entertainment that we face in our lives.
