This article discusses the work and career of Anurag Kashyap, an Indian film director living in Mumbai. He is considered one of the most creative and versatile filmmakers of contemporary Hindi cinema, experimenting with as many different genres as possible. His made-for-TV directorial debut, Last Train to Mahakali (1999), is a murder mystery. Afterwards, Kashyap made crime thriller Paanch (2000, unreleased), docudrama Black Friday (2004), metaphysical horror No Smoking (2007) and animation for children Return of Hanuman (2007). His latest works, both released in 2009, are: violent love story Dev.D and political fiction Gulaal. Dev.D — a modernized adaptation of the Bengali classic novel Devdas — became his first commercial success and changed the director’s status in Hindi film industry from an independent outsider to a respected producer supporting young filmmakers. But Anurag Kashyap’s future in the business is still uncertain.
