Movies do convey some universal life lessonWe all like to watch movies and it is often termed as an entertainment medium. A good movie is made by good story/script, good actors/casting, good sound/music, direction, cinematography, costumes, make-ups, good editing, screening, etc. When all of it gelled together, a great movie is produced which provides a good story be it emotional, romantic, current issues, politics, peoples plight, motivational/inspirational, the life of some great people, etc. When any one of the above is not merged, it affects the movie and can destroy the full movie.
Let me pen down some movies that convey some universal life lesson:
On Politics: Rajneethi, Guru, Yuva, Sarkar, Dusari Ghosta
On education: Tare Zameen Par, 3 Idiots, Chalk n Duster
On Media: Rann, Page 3, Phir Bhi Dil Hai Hindusthani, Peepli Live
On force: Boarder, URI, LOC, 1971 Beyond Borders
On People: I am Kalam, The man who knew Infinity, The Quantum Indians, Manjhi, the mountain man
Real-life incidents: 26/11, Bombay, Malang, Virus
On Sports: Chak De, Bigal, Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, 1983, Captain
On Great heros: Manikarkina, Tanaji,
On Motivation: Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara, Iqbal, Koshish, Sur — The Melody of Life, Uyare, Take-of
There are many more movies and in different languages that actually can be treated as a lesson to learn or inspired by. There are many masala movies just made to earn money or entertain people but we can even learn a lot from this medium and make it a mean to learn something new. Can you name some movies that you liked and added some value in respect to knowing real incidents, people, history, etc.
