Anurag Kashyap belongs to the new wave of Indian filmmakers whose subjects revolve around contemporary India and its issues. This small-town boy from Gorakhpur first came into the limelight with Black Friday
, a controversial film on the 1993 Mumbai blasts. Incidentally, his directorial debut, Paanch
ran into trouble with the Censor Board and is yet to see the light of the day. Known for his sensitivity and unconventional approach to filmmaking, Kashyap’s latest outing at the box-office, DevD
, has earned him both popular fame and critical acclaim.
