Labeled the eternal romantic and with one of the best musical senses in the business,Yash Chopra is arguably India’s most successful director of romantic films. Although he made action-oriented films like the ever-popular Deewaar (1975), it is in tackling love and its various aspects that he has been at his best. One of the few remaining commercial Indian directors who started their careers in the 1950s, he has successfully moved with the times from the socially significant Dhool Ka Phool (1959) to the young and cool Dil To Pagal Hai (1997), a love story set against the theater, which became a huge success.In 1973, the Chopra brothers separated, with Yash Chopra founded his studio, Yash Raj Films, and launched it with Daag: A Poem of Love (1973). He then entered one of his best phases with two Amitabh Bachchan classics: Deewaar (1975) and Kabhie Kabhie (1976).
