List Of All Sooraj Barjatya Movies
Sooraj R. Barjatya, born on February 22, 1965, is a stalwart in Indian cinema, known for his multifaceted role as a film director, producer, screenwriter, and distributor, primarily active in Hindi cinema. He is the current chairman of Rajshri Productions, a renowned Indian media conglomerate founded by his late grandfather Tarachand Barjatya in 1947. Barjatya's directorial journey began with his debut film "Maine Pyar Kiya" (1989), a romantic musical that emphasized themes of friendship. This film marked the beginning of his signature style, often revolving around family drama, cultural values, and rooted in Indian traditions.
One of his monumental achievements came with the iconic musical romantic drama "Hum Aapke Hain Koun..!" (1994), which not only garnered widespread critical acclaim but also became the most commercially successful Indian film at that time. The film, produced by his father Rajkumar Barjatya, achieved unprecedented success, selling over 7 crore tickets during its box office run, a milestone unmatched since "Sholay" (1975).
Continuing his success streak, Barjatya directed the commercially triumphant family drama "Hum Saath-Saath Hain" in 1999, solidifying his status as a maestro of the '90s. In 2006, he directed and produced "Vivah," a romantic drama that played a pivotal role in establishing Shahid Kapoor as a leading actor in Bollywood.
In 2015, Barjatya's collaboration with Salman Khan resulted in the romantic family drama "Prem Ratan Dhan Payo," which emerged as one of the highest-grossing films of the year. Notably, Barjatya's influence extends beyond box office success; he is credited with bringing a significant shift to Hindi cinema by creating films devoid of excessive action and vulgarity. His impact on society and pop culture is substantial, inspiring a generation of filmmakers, including Aditya Chopra and Karan Johar, to delve into cultural themes.
Barjatya's legacy is evident in the enduring popularity of his films like "Maine Pyar Kiya" and "Hum Aapke Hain Koun..!"—two timeless classics that remain among the top ten most successful films of the last 80 years in Hindi cinema. "Hum Saath Saath Hain" also stands out as the highest-grossing film of 1999, while "Vivah" celebrated a silver jubilee run at 25 centers across the country in 2006. His recent directorial, "Uunchai," focusing on friendship and starring Amitabh Bachchan, garnered positive reviews upon its release in November 2022.
