Team FC

Siva (1989)

Ram Gopal Varma made his directorial debut with this Nagarjuna starrer, a film inspired by Varma's own life, dealing with the lives of students and how they are impacted by people on the periphery of and within the system.

Kshana Kshanam (1991)

Venkatesh and Sridevi starred in Varma's account of a bank robbery gone wrong, resulting in a young woman seeking the help of a pickpocket to get away from the vengeful perpetrators of the crime.

Raatri / Raat (1992)

A Telugu-Hindi bilingual horror film, this was Varma's attempt to bring horror into a more mainstream space, and he chose Revathi to lead his star cast on this spooky, unnerving journey.

Rangeela (1995)

Urmila Matondkar emerged as a star with this musical romance co-starring Aamir Khan and Jackie Shroff. The narrative dealt with young love and aspirations and the movie industry, all coming together in Varma's unique fashion.

Satya (1998)

The film that really redefined a genre, Satya stood on the shoulders of Manoj Bajpayee, Urmila Matondkar, and J.D. Chakravarthy, and stood out for its exceptionally-nuanced depiction of the workmen in the criminal underworld and their lives.

Kaun? (1999)

A suspense thriller written by Anurag Kashyap and starring Urmila Matondkar, Manoj Bajpayee, and Sushant Singh, the film is unusual in not only content but also for its largely singular location and refreshing approach to storytelling.

Company (2002)

Varma fictionalised the relationship of real-life Mumbai criminals in this crime drama starring Ajay Devgn and Vivek Oberoi as a mentor-protege duo whose relationship sours, with Mohanlal and Manisha Koirala playing key roles as well.
