One of the leading filmmakers in Bollywood, Karan Johar is a brand in himself. He considers Raj Kapoor, Yash Chopra and Sooraj R. Barjatya as his inspirations when it comes to filmmaking. He started his career by working as an assistant director on Aditya Chopra’s Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge and we all know where he is. Here’s a list Top 10 Karan Johar movies so far, that will win your hearts instantly-
10. Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania
Even though Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania was a modern take on Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge, this Shashank Khaitan directorial had action, entertainment,love and thrill. Everything that you could ask for wrapped up in a single movie. Karan Johar has already announced the sequel to it, Badrinath Ki Dulhania.
9. Kapoor & Sons
With KJo as the producer and Shakun Batra as the director, Kapoor & Sons was a wholesome entertainer. A heart-warming, emotionally powerful and also full of humor, this movie wins you over.
8. Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani
Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani is a feel-good romantic movie directed by Ayan Mukherjee. KJo was yet again the producer this time. The movie has the perfect star-cast, perfect story with the perfect direction.
7. Wake Up Sid
One of the most eye-pleasing and refreshing films ever, once again a Ayan Mukherjee and Karan Johar collaboration wins our hearts. Unlike most of KJo’s productions, it is much more realistic and does not fall into the category of a ‘run-of-the-mill fairytale’. You can easily connect with the movie.
6. Bombay Talkies (Ajeeb Dastaan Hai Yeh)
A compilation of four short films, the first part of Bombay Talkies, titled as ‘Ajeeb Dastaan Hain Yeh’ was directed by Karan Johar. The story explores the hypocrisy and insincerity surrounding homosexuality. This is possibly his most serious piece of movie making so far.
5. Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna
Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna is an honest attempt to break away from the mauled of sugary romances that we usually get to see. KJo tries to show the dark side of marriage. With a stellar cast and stellar performances, Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna is not a movie for everyone.
4. Kuch Kuch Hota Hai
Kuch Kuch Hota Hai has the ability to capture the emotions of the viewer. Karan Johar’s directorial debut, it is one of those films you can always watch and enjoy with your family and friends.
3. Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham
Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham is a beautiful example of what a good director can do. It is one of the most ravishing and melodramatic Hindi films ever made. It has a bit of everything- drama, melodrama, romance and comedy.
2. Kal Ho Naa Ho
Karan Johar does it once again with Kal Ho Naa Ho. He succeeds in bringing comedy, romance and deep emotions together and give us one of his best movies ever. Nikhil Advani did a marvellous job with direction but only KJo can have the courage to give proper guidance to such an emotionally charged movie.
1. My Name Is Khan
Undoubtedly Karan Johar’s best movie so far, in every sense. This movie has become a cult classic for Shah Rukh Khan fans but you cannot take the credit from KJo, who made a movie that will make you laugh, it will make you cry and it will make you fall in love with it.
