In an accident, she loses one of her legs, but yet she does not give up dancing, but by laborious efforts, she even becomes a successful dancer. Sudha Chandran played a lead role in the movie to reveal her tragedy in real life, and yet her determination to overcome such adversities and follow her passions.

The movie is so well presented that every viewer is touched by the trauma that the dancer initially undergoes. The audience also love this movie because the dancer is draped in pretty costumes that were prominent during 1980s. The song 'Jhoom Jhoom Nache Mayuri' was fancied by the public and the dancers can learn some steps from this movie.

By watching this movie, every individual feels so optimistic that even a disability in life cannot hamper one's success if it is followed by determination and vision to succeed in life. Always believe and nurture your talent and do not let any adversities affect it. If disability can direct you towards success, then an ordinary failure cannot even place a stone in your pathway of success.

Chak de India

A movie directed by Shamit Amin with leading starrer as Shahrukh Khan is also based upon a true fact. In the movie, Shahrukh Khan, who is a hockey player Captain is blamed for the defeat and is eliminated from the team. But after few years, due to his utter determination, he becomes a coach for women's hockey team and helps them to win the game. In this course, he struggles to form a team and convince the parents of the team members about the game.

It is a fun-filled movie although the initial scene depicts Shamit Amin being insulted by his own neighbors. A team of young female hockey members really add a sense of entertainment in the movie. People can really enjoy the background score of the movie as the background music seems lively. Shahrukh Khan has perfectly played a role of a hockey coach who can derive success to his team by being highly energetic.

A person can rise from his failure, convert his or her fiery in the heart into positive energy and become successful in life at any point of time.


A movie directed by Ram Madhvani and Sonam Kapoor starrer released in 2016, is based upon the life of Neerja Bhanot who was a selfless and heroic purser in Pan Am flight. She was killed in a highjacking incident while saving three young children from the bullets of the terrorists, while saving the other 300 passengers. When she could easily rescue her life, she continued to be a dutiful flight attendant and bravely face such a dreadful situtation with smile.

The movie is perfectly a thriller that excites the public with the deception of terrorism all around. The whole movie is shot in a plane and reveals the fear and the torment that the passengers undergo when the terrorists began firing from anywhere. The background score and musical background both are excellent and the last scene is also depicted in a most dramatic way to bring tears into every eyes of the audience.

To sacrifice for someone is to become immortal. We can make at least small sacrifices to the community so that we can become happy when we make someone happy. Only a 23- year old Neerja could understand the true meaning of life and courage.


It is a Rajesh Khanna starrer movie released in 1971, directed by Hrishikesh Mukherjee that depicts Anand (Rajesh Khanna) as a cancer patient, but yet creates a positive environment around by his sheer optimism. He is an optimistic although, he is in acute distress physically. He always maintains smile on his face, and hence nobody can even think that his life would be short-lived. But Amitabh Bacchan who plays a role of a doctor is a serious-charactered person, although he is a successful doctor.

The audience can just love the dialogues spoken by Anand (Rajesh Khanna) and Amitabh Bacchan. They have perfectly portrayed the character of Rajesh Khanna who is sheer optimistic and his sens of maturity is also highlighted. The term 'Babu Mushai' is become so popular and remembered by every viewer even today. The last scene is so touching to showcase the death of Anand.

Even if we are near to death, we are not away from happiness and our internal happiness always lets us live every moment in a joyful way. Our characters are often formed by the way we perceive life and we can make our life always meaningful.


A movie directed by Mahesh Bhatt, released in 1991 is about a singer Anand (Anupam Kher) who is turned alcoholic due to certain circumstances. But Pooja Bhatt, who later on realizes that this person is her dad, she tries every step to get him rid from alcohol and become a singer again. She is not informed by her grandparents that Anand is her dad.

The movie is touching with meaningful dialogues and not comprise of much glamour. Pooja, a well-bred youngster uses different strategies to give new life to her alcoholic father and finally inspires her Dad to present on stage again.

To love someone with true heart can transform them within a short time. You can inspire someone, even take them away from intoxication and transform them into real human beings by understanding the pain of someone and truly loving them.

But later on his life is reformed by his teacher Ram Nikhumb (Amir Khan) who convinces his parents about his problem and also gives scope to his strengths. This movie has created awareness to the public about the problem of dyslexia in children.

The young children can really feel as if they are in a classsroom by viewing the classroom scenes.

This is nice article by author selecting some very good movie which has inspired us so much. However, In this list I would like to add the movie "Manjhi", the story of a man who cut the mountain in two pieces to make a road, about the man whose wife died on the way to reach hospital because there was no short cut to go to the hospital. People in that village had to take a long route to reach hospital. He loved his wife so much that he decided that he will cut the mountain to create a road. People called him mental, he didn't get any support from government authority and yet he alone could do such work which could be beyond even anyone's thought. An emotional movie and hard truth about our life inspired a lot that how a single person achieved doing an impossible piece of work.

I started reading the article with tremendous interest. But after finishing the same I am little bit disheartened. The author has discussed about six films which, according to her, are very inspiring. Going into details, I would first like to point out that such articles should mention the films in a chronological order. But unfortunately, the article has not done the same.

So far as “Nache Mayuri" is concerned, I would like to state that this film was released in 1986 and was directed by T. Rama Rao. The film was based on real life incidence of Sudha Chandran, a famous dancer who lost her leg in an accident. I still remember that the film was declared tax-free and became very popular. The music of Laxmikant- Pyarelal was good, but even at that time I felt that it was unnecessarily dramatizing the main issue. The cinematography was good but editing was so-so.

After 'Nache Mayuri', the author has discussed about the film 'Chak De India' (207). The film was directed by Shamit Amin and it was a creative imagination of real life event of Mir Ranjan Negi, Indian goal keeper who had the misfortune of goal-keeping against Pakistan in 1982 Asiad where India lost against Pakistan in the final 1-7. But in the film 'Chak De India', the story revolves around the coach, Kabir Khan, who single-handedly made Indian women's hockey team a world champion. I do not think this is an inspiring film. The film shows greater-than-life personality of the hero, Sharukh Khan.

Neerja (2016): This is another film which is a dramatization of the life of air-hostess Neerja Bhanot who lost her life in Pan Am hijacking at Karachi airport in 1986. The director of the film, Ram Madhvani tried to make a realistically good film but it is more biographical (nowadays called 'biopic') than inspiring. The cinematography of the film is very good, but the music is not at all worth-listening.

Anand (1971): It is a master piece of Hrishikesh Mukherjee, the doyen of healthy commercial Hindi film. The film shows the relationship between two heroes, Rajesh Khanna and Amitabh Bachhan. Needless to say that this Hrishikesh Mukherjee film is known for cinematography, music, editing and direction; but it cannot be characterized as an inspiring film. It only tells a good story.

However, we must say that 'Daddy' (1991), directed by Mahesh Bhatt and stared by Anupam Kher and Pooja Bhatt, is definitely an inspiring film where a daughter tries to rescue the alcoholic father. Similarly, 'Tare zameen par' (2007) is also an inspiring film. A child suffering from dyslexia is properly taken care of by Amir Khan, the director of the film.

Concluding my brief response, I would expect from the author that in future, while reviewing film/films, she would also discuss the quality of acting, editing, cinematography, music and direction besides discussing the story.

The author has started the article with good introduction and opted to name some of the movies (only six) which are inspiring in author's angle. There are many films, in fact, which are having so much impact of motivation on the society of the past and present.
Design in depicting the material of the article is not proper. I was searching for a conclusion. I think any article with a good conclusion would yield best results even if proper stuff in the body of the article is missed out.

This list of movies seems incomplete because 3 idiots has not been included in this list. How can you forget this movie which teach you to fight against struggles in your life. How the author forgot the message "All is Well".
I have watched it more than ten times and every time I watched it with same interest and enthusiasm. 3 idiots is a complete movie with serious message and a good story line. This movie inspired millions of students across this country with its slogan "Don't go after success, go for expertise, the success will come after you".
