Mohit Suri strikes a chord with the audience through his emotional films.

It’s often been pointed out that filmmaker Mohit Suri’s films have a similar look and feel. Be it Zeher (2005), Kalyug (2005), Murder 2 (2011) or Aashiqui 2 (2013), the emotional quotient is always high in his movies. Mohit says that there is a certain kind of romance that he believes in, which is why every time he makes a film, the underlying feel tends to remain the same.

“When I started dating Udita (Udita Goswami, his wife) she also asked me why I make the same kind of films. My answer was that I enjoy films where there is a certain level of emotional connect. Even when I’m watching a film, I like to laugh, cry and get thrilled at the same time,” says Mohit, whose last release, Half Girlfriend, starring Shraddha Kapoor and Arjun Kapoor received average response at the box-office.

Mohit adds that he will continue to make films that he believes in. “If I offer the audience what I enjoy making and believe in, only then would they appreciate the same, given its originality. I remember how much I liked watching the film, The Bridges of Madison County, and I would love to make such a film that makes you laugh and at the same time has a strong emotional connect.”

The Ek Villain (2014) filmmaker says that he realised what he can do best while making the film Aashiqui 2. “I found my voice while making Aashiqui 2. I realised that life is not just about love and hate but the vice that one has, which needs to be highlighted. And I think that is what clicked with the audience,” he adds.
