When it comes to lensing a spectacle, few can bring out sweeping visual drama as elegantly as Sudeep Chatterjee. From the understated tone of Chak De! India to the buttery, opulent warmth of Bajirao Mastani, his cinematography is always keenly attentive to the director’s vision and an actor’s expressiveness. A perfectionist with an eye for detail, this alumnus of Film and Television Institute of India is known for collaborating with various departments to ensure every element is optimised to bring out the emotional depth of the moment on camera. The way Chatterjee lights a scene often helps an actor optimise their performance, like the way an early scene in Gangubai Kathiawadi shows the protagonist’s tussle between hope and darkness by lighting Alia Bhatt in a way that half her face is smothered in shadow while the other half looks resplendent in sunlight.
