Right Sync Between Writer, Director Vital: Habib Faisal

Mumbai, May 8 (IANS): Habib Faisal, who has written several scripts for Yash Raj Films (YRF), feels right synchronisation between a writer and a director is vital for making a good film. He says superhit film "Band Baaja Baaraat" was a result of that perfect sync.

"When you are writing, everything is perfect. The ultimate author of the film is the director. There is always a gap between what the writer imagines and what the director does. At times directors take the writer's work beyond his imagination and there are times he falls short," Habib told IANS.

"But what is important is balance. When there is a complete sync between the writer and the director, that is when a 'Band Baaja Baaraat' happens," he added. The film was written and directed by Maneesh Sharma.

Habib turned director to tell the story of a middle-class family and its struggle to buy a car in "Do Dooni Chaar". From the script to dialogues, from execution to performances by Rishi Kapoor, Neetu Singh and other actors, every aspect of the film worked. It entertained people so much so that it won the National Award for best Hindi feature film of 2010.

Now his second film "Ishaqzaade", which will launch Boney Kapoor's son Arjun in filmdom, is coming out May 11. However, Habib says he didn't get to direct YRF's production venture "Ishaqzaade" because of the success of "Do Dooni Chaar".

Said the director: "'Do Dooni Chaar' did not get me this. The fact that I made 'Do Dooni Chaar' on my own terms proved to him (Aditya Chopra) that this guy can make films which are not larger than life, are about regular people and yet entertaining."

If he worked with seasoned actors in his directorial debut, Habib opted for Arjun and one-film-old Parineeti Chopra to play main leads in "Ishaqzaade".

When asked why he chose newcomers, he said: "The film is set in a fictitious small town. So we wanted new faces for the film," he said.

Despite bagging the National Award for his first film, the director is nervous about the release of his second film.

"That alone cannot be the criteria. Every director can go wrong in his next script. So it boils down to which script you are going with. If something excites them, then I

would love to. Till then I will make films with more newcomers," Habib said.
