Hot 100, Cinematographers, Marcin Laskawiec

It is a challenge for most films today to rival the sheer scale of the action sequences in Ali Abbas Zafar’s Tiger Zinda Hai or the expertise with which Polish cinematographer Marcin Laskawiec has captured them for the big screen. This Yash Raj production headlines Salman Khan, and it plays up to the megastar’s action image to the hilt with imaginative combat scenes, explosions and even the shooting of a helicopter out of the sky. Laskawiec’s energetic shots and effective use of light and colour amidst vast desert vistas make this all appear visually impressive.
Laskawiec has bagged the IIFA trophy this year. Western cinematographers such as Jeffery Bierman (Kapoor and Sons), Carlos Catalan (Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara) and Laskawiec’s compatriot Artur Zurawski (Yash Raj and Ali Abbas Zafar’s previous hit, Sultan) are regularly cracking the Bollywood code, indicating that Indian cinema is now remunerative enough to attract crossover talent.
