Between Singham 3 and the fifth Golmaal, Rohit Shetty is poised to direct Ranveer Singh in Simmbawhich is said to be a remake of the Telugu film Temper but from the first look poster, it appears to be a Dabangg-Singham hybrid with a dash of Rowdy Rathore, at least in spirit. While Shetty and many A-list contemporary Hindi filmmakers are immensely successful in terms of box office, it is more or less apparent that they do not possess any range when it comes to the stories that they tell.

In the decade and a half that he has been making films, half of Shetty’s body of work comprises of four Golmaals and two Singhams. Additionally, two more films – Sunday and All the Best: Fun Begins – seem like ideas that could have been Golmaal films. It would not be incorrect to say that many present day Hindi filmmakers seem to be making the same kind of film again and again, unlike many from the 1950s and 1960s such as a Chetan Anand, who in spite of a smaller number of films, tried to experiment with genres.

Today, the prolific Anurag Kashyap (11 films) or the larger than life Sanjay Leela Bhansali (eight films) rarely venture out of a comfort zone in terms of genre. The same goes for Imtiaz Ali (seven films), Karan Johar (six films), Kabir Khan (six films), Aditya Chopra (four films) and Rajkumar Hirani (four films). While there is nothing wrong in that; after all a filmmaker has every right to make the film that they like, even when it comes to producing films, something that most directors today are doing with greater alacrity than ever in the past, they willy-nilly end up playing the same note.

No one knows Dibarkar besides some Internet peeps and Art Movie lovers

Yup.. U r right Shukla ji.. But that doesn't change the fact that he is one of the brightest minds of Bollywood.

actually judging a good director is dependent on seeing if a director has a vision by looking at his movies' ......!! i believe that.... some make movie for the sake of it...some have vision then make the movie.
