In 1999, he wrote and directed a short film Last Train to Mahakali (1999) and made his directorial debut with Paanch (2000). This was followed by the acclaimed Black Friday, based on the 1993 Bombay bombings. It won the Grand Jury Prize at the 3rd Annual Indian Film Festival of Los Angeles in 2005. His other works include Dev.D which received widespread acclaim chiefly due to the film's fearless visual style, its experimental soundtrack and its innovative narrative structure, No Smoking (2007), Return of Hanuman(2007), Gulaa(2009), That Girl in Yellow Boots (2010) and Gangs of Wasseypur (I & II) (2012).He served as a jury member for the Venice International Film Festival and Sundance Film Festival, and the Marrakech International Film Festival as the President of the Feature Film Jury. In 2013, he has been honored by the French government and been conferred the “Chevalier dans ’ordre des Arts et Lettres” (Knight of the Order of Arts and Letters) on the filmmaker at a ceremony held in the Palais des Festivals.
