music directors as directors [just for you Gaurav]

Given that (a) Maqbool hits theatres (in India at least) tomorrow (and still lacks good PR!) (b) I just knocked out one more BCQC connections entry with the post on directors acting for directors. Another question that rises is about music directors functioning as directors. We could include Satyajit Ray and John Carpenter, who composed the music for their own films (Ray for most, Carpenter for all). While Kishore Kumar and Vishal Bhardwaj are obvious choices, there are several other people who qualify. Here's an exhaustive RMIM thread on the subject.

Here's another BCQC connection entry (just for you JR). This is clearly a longer list . It's easy to miss out several obvious names. Here's a start: Kishore Kumar, Rahul Bose, Kamal Hassan, Anant Mahadevan, Randhir Kapoor, Rishi Kapoor, Amol Palekar, Shafi Inamdar, Vinod Mehra, Subhash Ghai, Anthony Perkins, Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, Marlon Brando, Robert Englund, George Clooney, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Denzel Washington, Tim Robbins, Sean Penn, Mel Gibson, Bill Paxton, Danny DeVito, Ed Harris, Jack Nicholson, Matt Dillon, Kevin Spacey, William Shatner, Leonard Nimoy.
