Do you watch biopics for inspiration or just entertainment ?We have seen a host of biopics in the past few years. Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, Mary Kom, M. S. Dhoni, Neerja, Dangal, The Dirty Picture and Sanju to name a few of the very successful biopics.
I believe there must be a reason why these biopics are made and why are they successful at the box office. There must be some business sense as well in making this category of films.
I watch biopics for the learnings that it can offer me. It gives me an inside view of the struggles and the hard work that goes into a person's life. Though a book is always my first choice, I also enjoy movies as a medium to know more about another person's journey.
The fact that biopics are also entertaining is an added bonus.
