We are burdened by media commentary: Karan Johar showers praises on 'The Romantics'
Karan Johar took to his social media account and shared a touchy review on 'The Romantics'.
Less than a day after The Romantics' release, Karan Johar posted an emotional critique of it. The docuseries The Romantics, which honoured the contribution of late director Yash Chopra to Indian cinema history, made its debut on Netflix. The four-episode series features conversations with 35 illustrious figures in the Indian cinema business.
Karan Johar wrote an impassioned review of "The Romantics," which was released on OTT on Valentine's Day.
Taking to his Instagram account KJo wrote, “I realised the purity, the innocence and the conviction we all collectively had…is so lost today for most of us…. Yash Chopra is not just a legend of romance … a connoisseur of chiffon, music and beauty… a maestro of musicals… he was also a pillar of belief and conviction… is there any conviction left today? We are burdened by media commentary… box office opening analytics, research engines ( all probably relevant to the technology and times) but where did good old fashioned conviction vanish."
He further stated how the series reminicesd him on his own journey and added, “The rom doc reminds us of the past that seemed so organic and heartfelt…. Makes me want to go back to that zone of filmmaking ….. I am so deeply inspired by the YRF story… it’s origin and it’s journey…. Having learnt everything I know from the corridors of the studio I stand blessed and watching The Romantics made me so self aware … of my strengths and my failings…. Thank you @smritimundhra for weaving a narrative out of the archives and actually making an audience go through the many emotional beats through the 4 episodes…just brilliant!”
Lastly paying an ode to the Chopra's he said, “And finally my Best friend has a face and how beautifully articulate was he!!! Adi does that mean I can post all the images we have shared over decades that you have threatened to never speak to me if I put out ??? #justasking #loveyouAdi congratulations to my dearest friend @udayc for being such a force behind this.”
Talking on his work front, Karan Johar will be returning as a director after seven years with the film ‘Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani’ that stars Alia Bhatt, Ranveer Singh, Shabana Azmi, Jaya Bachchan and Dharmendra.
