The Romantics is an Indian documentary series directed by Smriti Mundhra.
Yasi Chopra was a Bollywood film director who died in 2012 and left an immense legacy of movies, memories and experiences that Neflix brings to us today in the form of interviews, files and above all, lots of joy and color.
Chopra made his first feature film in the Seventies and during 40 years of work, left a legacy and a mark in Bollywood that is hard to forget. This documentary series that includes scenes by the director himself and some of his main actors, tries to make us re-live from within, the magic of cinema and above all, his enthusiasm.
A docu-series which, like Bollywood, is happy, vivid, funny and, yes, very sentimental.
Good editing work, inserting interviews in a rhythmic way and which has managed to tell and document a life in movies.
To be enjoyed.
