The Shape-shifter

It is hard to pin down the animal that it is Dibakar Banerjee. You could call him an avant garde filmmaker, but he’s also a clued-in-to-the-masses ad-film maker on the side. You could peg him as the new-age Hrishikesh Mukherjee and thank god that someone was finally making family entertainers like Khosla Ka Ghosla, but the intense voyeurism of Love Sex aur Dhokha might make you cringe. If there is one thing for certain about Dibakar Banerjee, it is that while being a product of the Indian middle-class, he has also been its keenest observer. Whether one is a Dibakar fan or not, one cannot help but marvel at the sheer spot-on texture of his dialogue, sets and characterization.

The 42-year-old currently resides in Mumbai with his wife, Richa Puranesh because although evidently inspiring in nostalgic detail, ‘Delhi is a depressing place for a filmmaker to be.”
