Netflix’s docu-series The Romantics, without a doubt, released on the day of love and here’s what the Bollywood fanatics had to say about the show!
The Romantics, directed by Oscar and Emmy nominated filmmaker, Smrithi Mundra, digs deep into the birth and journey of Yash Raj Films and how the genius father son duo, Yash Chopra and Aditya Chopra created such a huge empire in the Hindi film industry and gave a new definition to the genre of romance. The four episode docu-series interviews more than 35 icons from Bollywood which includes Rishi Kapoor, Madhuri Dixit, Anil Kapoor, Shahrukh Khan, Hrithik Roshan, and Amitabh Bachchan, to name a few, who give a perspective on 50 years of cinematic history.
Most of the Janta believes this was the best Valentine’s Day plan they could’ve asked for. To be able to sit at home and binge-watch a series about how their favourite romantic movies were made struck a chord with many. They became super nostalgic while watching the show and missed the old school love they showed in the movies. But without a doubt the highlight of the web-series was finally getting to see an exclusive interview of Aditya Chopra. The man behind Yash Raj Films today, explains how he has been working hard since he was a kid, how he still goes to the theatres every Friday to understand what the audience likes and dislikes. Getting to see what goes on in his mind was intriguing for many. The Romantics was a heartwarming and emotional journey for all the ‘romantics’ who watched the series.
