Anurag Kashyap started as an indie filmmaker — in many ways he still is — but now has transitioned into the most famous champion of indie films. In a country that produces the most number of movies in the world, he is also, arguably, the best director working today. When you look at Anurag Kashyap movies, you realize why. You can clearly see inspirations of the well-regarded directors like Martin Scorsese and Michael Hanake in his work, but at the same time, his films are also very authentically “Indian” — from street lingo to ethnic music.
With that said, let’s list down all the top Anurag Kashyap movies and rank them from worst to best. You can watch some of these best Anurag Kashyap movies on Netflix, Hulu or Amazon Prime.
13. Return of Hanuman
Did he really direct this? May be he did. Not his kind of cinema. Neither my kind. Let’s leave it at that.
12. Bombay Velvet
Ambitious. But ambition alone doesn’t make for a good film. Strangely enough, ‘Bombay Velvet’s’ issues lied in the writing department — which happens to be a strong suite of Kashyap. For a director who is so good at make crime dramas, this one was a surprising failure. Probably, Kashayp got overwhelmed by the production instead of concentrating on the writing. Probably, not — he just failed to tell a compelling story.
