Renowned filmmaker Imtiaz Ali discusses challenges faced by two notable films and optimism for their future reception.

Renowned filmmaker Imtiaz Ali, known for crafting memorable cinematic experiences, recently delved into the box office failures of his much talked about films Love Aaj Kal and Jab Harry Met Sejal. Despite his track record of delivering hits like Rockstar and Jab We Met, Ali candidly acknowledged the execution problems that plagued these projects. In a conversation with HT City, he shared, "When I made them, I just wanted to make a movie, but they didn’t work. All my films have had some problems in execution, they could have been better."

Despite the setbacks, Ali remains optimistic about the future reception of these films, believing that over time, audiences may discover hidden nuances and appreciate their inherent value. As a filmmaker deeply invested in storytelling, he hopes that his work will eventually find its rightful place in the hearts of viewers, transcending initial box office outcomes.

Contrary to the perception that Imtiaz Ali's movies require intellectual engagement, the director expresses a desire to distance himself from this label. He emphasizes a preference for inclusive storytelling, stating, "I don’t want my films to come across as intellectual. If they do, they might seem restrictive, and I don’t want them to belong to an exclusive crowd." Despite this sentiment, Ali remains true to his creative vision, crafting narratives that resonate with authenticity and emotional depth.

Ali's recent venture, Amar Singh Chamkila, marks a departure from his previous reluctance to delve into biographical dramas. Exploring the life of Punjab's iconic singer, the film received critical acclaim upon its direct-to-digital release, showcasing Ali's versatility as a storyteller. While he acknowledges the appeal of biographical storytelling, Ali asserts his reluctance to pursue similar projects in the future, emphasizing the importance of maintaining the magic and unpredictability of cinema.

As Amar Singh Chamkila continues to garner praise on platforms like Netflix, Ali remains committed to crafting narratives that captivate audiences while staying true to the essence of storytelling.
