Independence Day is a day to commemorate our country’s independence. Movies, or cinema, have long been one of the most potent and effective means for raising awareness and channeling your inner patriotism. As we remember the martyrs and freedom warriors who battled for our country’s liberation, we are filled with pride and patriotism.
A well-made film has the ability to transform the world and has a greater impact on the audience’s thinking than any other form of media.
Here’s a list of five fantastic films that instilled in us a sense of “Deshbhakti” for our homeland and made us proud.
1. URI: The Surgical Strike
The film, directed by Aditya Dhar, tells the story of the Indian Army’s surgical strike against militant launch pads in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir in 2016. Vicky Kaushal plays an unstoppable Para Commando in the lead role. This is a true event-based film that seeks to generate a sense of patriotism through purposeful and dramatic efforts.
2. Rang De Basanti
Rang De Basanti is a romantic film made by Rakesh Omprakash Mehra about six young Indians who help an English woman shoot a documentary about liberation warriors from their history. It is also a fancier version of narrating the narrative of Bhagat Singh. The film’s plot is set in modern-day Delhi University, and it examines how things would change if today’s youth were as motivated as those in pre-independence India.
The Border is a milestone film in Indian cinema that depicts a war drama and is based on true events that occurred during the Battle of Longewala in 1971. J.P. Dutta’s film is superbly written and directed. The narrative of the film depicts the friendship that develops between many young soldiers following a traumatic near-death encounter and their attempt to survive by sharing experiences.
Raazi is a novel by Meghna Gulzar about an Indian girl named Sehmat who becomes a spy for the love of her nation. Sehamt, who is married to Pakistani officers as part of her mission, is played by Alia Bhatt. This spy thriller is based on Harinder Sikka’s 2008 novel “Calling Sehmat,” which is based on a true story. The music from the movies are emotional and conveys a sense of wonder.
Lagaan, Ashutosh Gowariker’s magnificent film, cemented his place in the big league. This great film attempts to depict the journey of a few Indian farmers who compete in a cricket match against British Army officers in order to rescue their crops and farms. The film’s plot is set in modern-day Delhi University, and it examines how things would change if today’s youth were as motivated as those in pre-independence India.
So, enjoy these movies with your family and friends this Independence Day, and we wish you all a very happy Independence Day. Jai Hind, Jai Bharat!
