10 Bollywood films Ram Gopal Varma should avoid to make

Ram Gopal Varma is known for making thriller and gangster films. But with time the director is finding it hard to prove his mettle. Take a look at 10 Bollywood films or their genres that we wouldn't want the director to make.
The mushy romance of Raj and Simran on a train has made many hearts skip a beat. With romantic songs, the picturesque beauty and heart warming dialogues, ‘Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge’ has been one of the most romantic films of all time. And, filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma might just add some shaky camera movement to spoil the emotion of love. And, keeping a track of his recent films, he should really stay away from making romantic films.
Ram Gopal Varma has been often seen taking on the horror and thriller genre when it comes to filmmaking. Imagine the filmmaker getting into the shoes of Hrishikesh Mukherjee or Gulzar and deliver an unforgettable comedy film. Well, if Ramu would get to make 1982 film 'Angoor' then it would unarguably become a comedy of errors.
Ram Gopal Varma proved everyone right when he decided to make a remake of the 1975 classic 'Sholay'. 'Aag' turned out to be a disaster and the director should take a lesson from his past mistake and avoid picking up any other classic film like 'Mughal-E-Azam' for a remake.
Ram Gopal Varma should also stay away from making a film like 'Dabangg' with a promising star cast like Salman Khan and Sonakshi Sinha where the dialogues and action take over the film's premise. He would not be able to do justice to over the top films that easily make it to Rs 100 crore club.
Had Ram Gopal Varma made 'Chak De!', the film would have been more about shaky camera movements and bird eye view camera angles than hockey and its tactics. The director should refrain from making a film on any kind of sport.
Ram Gopal Varma has dabbled in gangster, horror and thriller films. Exploring the dark side of human psyche is what the director believes him. So, we would definitely not want him to make a complete entertainer with naach-gaana, over the top action scenes and colourful dialogues. It would be difficult to justify a film like 'Rowdy Rathore' or 'Ready'.
After receiving a scathing response to 'The Attacks of 26/11', the director should stay away from making a film on real life incidents. After bringing the Mumbai terror attacks on the silver screen, we just hope that he does not take another real life incident to the 70 mm screen.
If mushy romantic films are not the forte of the director then making teenage romantic films would be all the more difficult. He should stay away from making films like 'Student Of The Year' which are more about gloss, romance and some drama.
Ram Gopal Varma's cinema has always associated children with some horror genre. Where the child in the film is often taken hostage by a ghost and he is the only one who sees them. It would be really difficult for the director to come up with a film like 'Taare Zameen Par' which speaks volume about love and emotions.
Most of the director's films are shot either in an apartment or in a building with just basic furniture and real characters. It would be difficult to see him make film like 'Devdas' or 'Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam' with larger than life sets and characters.
