Shekhar Kapur has proved himself as one of the most complete film directors in the history of India. Where he’s made serious films with children as protagonists, he’s also milked the Bollywood formula in a Sci-Fi film, without even a single unintelligent minute. And he’s gone out on a limb and made one of the most uncompromised Hindi films ever – in the form of Bandit Queen.
And today, as the maverick director turns 72, one can’t help but wish to see him one more time behind the camera. Make another film, Mr. Kapur!
