Imtiaz Ali's creates a new world with his movies, and often leaves the audience thinking about life, love and emotions. The filmmaker weaves stories that are raw, that talk about flawed relationship, that talk about real human emotions, and makes it all look so relatable that you get lost in the universe created by him. Complicated yet content, explosive yet subtle, the beauty of Imtiaz's films is found in this very contrast. It is very safe to say that the way Ali is one of the few directors who understands relationships and love.

His characters are moulded by how they react to the circumstances making everything look even more believable on the screen.
Imtiaz Ali is more of an urban director who understands the concept of love like no other.
