Today is birthday for the maverick filmmaker who saved Bollywood from melodramatic, cliché wedding films and boring love stories! In fact, Ramu doesn't celebrate his birthdays as he believes that the thought of getting older and going nearer to death scares him.
Ramu himself calls the day 'Death Day'. Years before, the Company director published an insightful article in his blog named 'Happy Death Day' in which he, with appropriate logic, argued about the pointlessness of celebrating birth days.
Even though Shiva was Ramu's first tryst with Bollywood, it was Rangeela that made him a well known name in Hindi film industry. A path breaking musical, Rangeela, still stands out as a rare gem of Bollywood. The songs composed by A R Rahman were trend setters that re defined the countenance of Bollywood music.
Ramu's gritty, film-noir flick Satya paved a new path for hard hitting films in Bollywood and the artists the film presented are the ones who played great roles in bringing a terrific change to Bollywood cinema in terms of content and form. Anurag Kashyap, Manoj Bajpai, Urmila Matondkar, Sandeep Chowtha, Salim Sulaiman are some of the talented artists Ramu either introduced or popularized in Bollywood.
