 NYAFF 2006: The Films of Ram Gopal Varma
Ram Gopal Varma claims that everything a film director needs to know can be learned in 24 hours, and he proved his point at 28 with his first movie, SHIVA (1990).
Varma entered Bollywood with the showbiz romance, RANGEELA, but his career was defined by his wildly successful crime trilogy: SATYA (1998), COMPANY (2002) and SARKAR (2005).
The India Varma maps in his crime trilogy is a corrupt landscape where politicians, thugs, movie producers, and police officers consolidate their power by any means necessary and innocent bystanders are either pawns or collateral damage.

 Bollywood's Tarantino and his band of outsiders - Salon
The innovative and unconventional film director, known as "RGV" to the public and "Ramu" to his fans and friends, is Bollywood's answer to Quentin Tarantino.
RGV's obsession with making script-oriented, low-budget, quick-turnaround movies is unheard of in chaotic Bollywood, where films always go over budget, are always behind schedule and rely too much on overpaid stars.
RGV loathes the namby-pamby love stories and family dramas that Bollywood churns out, so much so that he often includes cutting comments about them in his own films.

Dismissing the notion of Devi being dressed in fl being a sharp contrast to Radha’s white, Varma says, “This film is set in a different era and milieu and it’s unlikely that a widow today would dress as one 30 years ago did.
Tell Varma that we believed ‘Basanti’ would be a taxi driver and he says, “I chose an auto-rickshaw because it is treated like a human and easier to maneuver in traffic than a taxi.
The shooting of RGV's Sholay is expected to be complete by April 2007 and is slated for a May release.

Ram Gopal Varma (born 1962), a civil engineer by education, ran a video library.
While the output is uneven, his risk-taking is impressive and so too the support to younger directors through his Varma Corporation.
Varma knowingly picks up themes of ordinariness even when he chooses glamorous subjects: thus a male fan’s adored female star is the victim of a repressive domestic situation in Mast (1999), and the young female extra’s rise to stardom in Rangeela (1995) matter-of-factly highlights her working girl persona.

 Cinema Strikes Back - Covering the World of Film » People: Ram Gopal Varma
Ram Gopal Varma (see our profile here) has been directing and producing some of the most hard-hitting and beautifully-crafted gangster films anywhere in the world for years.
In this frank interview, Anuradha Sengupta talks with Varma about the challenges of producing films, his love for Mumbai/Bombay, his interest in gangster films, and acknowledges that Bhoot is a remake of Raat (a point which some few have debated).
Yes, I know, the epic-length masala movies are cheeseball, and you either develop a taste for them or you don’t, but there’s a new wave of Indian filmmakers that have moved in a different direction, pumping out shorter, focused, and at times gritty movies – increasingly without a song or dance in sight.
