"Everyone should watch," says Taika Waititi, the director of Thor Ragnarok. ABCD, the dance film by Remo D'Souza, is a "fantastic big film"

 Taika Waititi named two movies as his number one Indian movies. He commended Satyajit Beam's Pather Panchali and Remo D'Souza's ABCD.

Hollywood chief Taika Waititi, who is known for films like Thor Ragnarok, Jojo Bunny among others, as of late shared that Remo D'Souza's 2013 film ABCD: Any Body Can Move, is one of his #1 movies. Taika adulated Satyajit Beam's film Pather Panchali and said that it was a motivation for him when he began making motion pictures yet quickly raised ABCD as the film that "everybody ought to watch."

Talking about Indian film to India Today, Taika said, "obviously, the Satyajit Beam film Pather Panchali. It was lovely and exceptionally uplifting when I was making my initial movies. Next is the spectacular ABCD which is a fabulous large film which I figure everybody ought to watch." ABCD was a dance film featuring Prabhu Deva, Kay Menon, Lauren Gottlieb, Punit Pathak, Dharmesh and Salman Yusuff Khan. The film had a continuation which delivered in 2015.

In the wake of coordinating the much acclaimed Thor Ragnarok, Taika was carried back by MCU to coordinate Thor Love and Thunder. Taika had previously stated in an interview with Deadline that he had "no interest" in directing Thor Ragnarok and that the only reason he took on the project was to make money. Love & Thunder was unable to achieve the same level of success as Ragnarok. He confirmed to Business Insider that he would not be involved in Thor 5 following the release of his 2022 film.

Next Goal Wins, Taika's last directorial effort, will open in Indian theaters on February 2 and had its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival in 2023.

For his 2019 film Jojo Rabbit, Taika previously won an Oscar for Best Adapted Screenplay.
