Satyajit Ray
Mani Ratnam
Vishal Bhardwaj
Imtiaz Ali
Shyam benegal
Rituparno Ghosh
SLB
Ashutosh Gowariker
Dibakar Banerjee
Vikramaditya Motwane


Not majority of their work but I liked these films of these directors:  Raghvan's Johnny Gaddar, Vikas Bahl's Queen, Anurag basu's Barfi, Zoya Akhtar's Luck By Chance. Among commercial directors Shankar makes fun/super-crazy/insane films, they are stupid but man.. what fun!

1- Anurag Kashap. (Ugly, GOV, Dev D and now by the looks of it BV)
2- RajKumar Hirani. (PK, 3I and MunnaBhai. Enough said. Pure quality.)

3- Vikram Aditya Motwane. (Udaan is a masterpiece while Lootera was good too)
4- Vishal Bharadwaj. (Loved Haider, Maqbool and Omkara. Wonder full takes the writings of the legend that is Shakespeare. Three masterpieces)

5- Abisheikh Kapoor. (KPC and Rock on fame. Fitoor looks brilliant as well)
6- Sriram Raghvan. (I love thrillers and he seems to be the only one who can do justice to them. Some bad films in b/w but he can be brilliant when he wants.)

7- Farhan Akhtar. (Don series ruined him but still to direct a movie of DCH class, he has to be in the top 10. And that too for a first movie.)
8- Reema Kagti. (I know its early but I just loved, loved Talaash)

9- Dibakar Baneerjee. (Its high time he comes up with something exceptional. That man has talent but he keeps falter for God knows what reason.)
10- Aamir Khan.
(TZP was a class apart. If his next titled "Barf" is anywhere near as good as that one he would go right up with Anurag and Hirani. He is at ten because he is an actor first and has only direct just the one movie.)

Honorable mentions;

Sojit Sarkar (Vicky Donor, Madras Cafe. A lot depends on Piku.)
Anurag Basu. (Loved Barfi. Hope he comes up with something similar soon.)
Ashotosh (Lagaan is masterpiece. One of the greatest cinematic experiences BW has to offer. JA was not up to the mark though. He can still shoot up to the top if MoenjoDaro is good)



A tad overrated;
Zoya Akhtar ( Say whatever you want but ZNMD is a copy of DCH without being anywhere near the class of the latter. I liked some of her other movies but nope she hasn't had that break out movie yet).
Imtiaz Ali.( He is good, I liked JWM and Highway, but not to the extent he is hyped up to be.)

Very Overrated;
SLB. (When was the last time he made anything good??)

Imatiaz is good as well. Highway and JWM were good. But I find him and Zoya to be a tad overrated. Them being in the top 15 or so shows the lack of good directors in BW.

SLB is so overrated. When was the last time he made something good??
