R Balki’s birthday in 2024: The director’s best 5 films, ranging from Pad Man to Paa

One of the most well-known directors in the Indian cinema business is R Balki. Over the course of his roughly ten-year career, he has made a number of stunning films that explore many aspects of life’s intricacies. All of his films are vibrant and emotional, from the retribution thriller “Chup” to the unusual love tale “Cheeni Kum.” In honor of R Balki’s birthday today, here is a look back at some of his beloved movies:

In 2007, Balki directed his first Hindi film, Cheeni Kum, in which Amitabh Bachchan and Tabu play the main characters. The protagonist of the film is 64-year-old chef Buddhadev Gupta (played by Amitabh Bachchan), who develops feelings for Nina Verma (played by Tabu), a considerably younger lady. The unusual bond between the two and the social stigmas associated with age differences in love partnerships are both explored in the movie.

Ki & Ka: R Balki’s movies have always questioned social conventions, and “Ki & Ka” is no exception. It tells the tale of Arjun Kapoor’s character Kabir and Kareena Kapoor Khan’s character Kia, with Kareena Kapoor and Arjun Kapoor playing key roles. The complexities of their relationship and cultural misconceptions around gender conventions are also explored in the film. In the movie, Kia is a career-driven lady, and Kabir is a stay-at-home spouse who wants to be like his mother.

One of R. Balki’s greatest movies is Paa. The poignant story centers on a young child named Auro who quickly ages due to a rare condition called progeria. Amitabh Bachchan plays the part of Auro in the film, while Abhishek Bachchan portrays the father. The documentary follows the life of a little child with a rare illness.

Pad Man: Based on the biography of Arunachalam Muruganantham, “Pad Man” stars Akshay Kumar as social reformer and businessman Lakshmikant Chauhan, who takes on the task of enhancing women’s cleanliness during menstruation. Chauhan makes reasonably priced pads for ladies and devotes his life to this endeavor.

Chup: The Revenge of the Artist – This film tells the convoluted tale of a guy on a quest to kill each movie reviewer who awards a rating or writes a bad review after receiving payment. The film explores issues of art, psychology, and the aftereffects of trauma as the mystery is solved.
