Indian cinemas enjoy playing with the concept of love. Over the years, directors have come up with a different take on romance. Our screens have lit with passionate love sagas to nuanced love triangles to new-age digital romance.

But as conventional as the subject is, our industry has seen some of the most beautiful, unconventional and relatably extraordinary love stories by a few directors. These directors have given the audience cinematic gems that presented love with a new lens.

Here’s listing four directors and their works below, one must watch for a refreshing take.

Shoojit Sircar

While Shoojit Sircar has diverse filmography, his representation of love in ‘October’ (2018) has a different fan base. The idea of slow and undefinable romance between two individuals was hauntingly beautiful.

Imtiaz Ali

Well, Imtiaz Ali has given many modern-age classic love stories. His bubbly tale of romance with ‘Jab We Met’ (2007) and the intense saga of passion with ‘Rockstar’ (2011) seems to top the list.

Vinil Mathew

Vinil Mathew discussed the nuances and messiness of love with both his projects. While ‘Hasee Toh Phasee’ (2014) dived into many layers of human relationships, ‘Haseen Dillruba’ (2021) took a pulpy route into small-town passion and infidelity.

Shakun Batra

Shakun Batra is making noise for his attempt to talk about infidelity in a relationship with ‘Gehraiyaan’ (2022). He also took an unconventional route with ‘Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu’ (2012) when a love story ends with a friendship.
