Movies are inevitable for me. My first priority is always to watch a good film that make me to shed tears. Films plays a very important role in our day to day life. Sometimes it also teach us the real meaning of our life. These are some of my few favourite films that changed my life forever and had a great impact on me.
First place will always be given to
“Babumushoi, zindagi aur maut upar waale ke haath hai … usse na toh aap badal sakte hai na main … hum sab to rangmanch ki kathputliyan hai jinki dor upar waale ki ungliyon mein bandhi hai.”
“My friend, life and death is in the hands of God … you can’t change it and neither can I … we all are puppets of the theater whose string is tied in the fingers of God.”
Directed by one of the finest director of Indian Cinema Hrishikesh Mukherjee. Anand is one of his best works. Chirpy performance by late Rajesh khanna is really unparalleled.He makes you laugh , cry and create anxiety and goosebumps by his brilliant craft. Anand is a story of a dying man who looks at life with a positive attitude knowing fully well that his disease is incurable and he is going to die soon. He wants to fill every life that he touches with happiness. Respected Amitabh Bachchan played a fantastic role of doctor who tries everything to save Anand. Music is the hallmark of all great hindi movies and this one has music ranking right up there, on the top. Be it “Kahin door jab din dhal jaye” or ” Maine tere liye hi saath rang” or “Zindagi kaisi hai paheli”. Film makes you to live each day to the fullest.
“Either way, it’s going to be one hell of a ride.“
– Matt Kowalski
Amazing performances by Sandra bullock and George Clooney. Film is full of intense and thriller situations happened in space. Struggle to survive makes you to relate your own story. George Clooney played a best part which enlightens the last hope when every doors was closed for her. Film inspires me rather than losing hope and giving up, the chose to pick myself up, brush myself off, and continue moving with the hope toward my destination.
3. HACHIKO – A DOG’S TALE (2009)
“Look ,you don‘t have to wait anymore hachi. He‘s not coming back.“ – carl
Based on a true story of a Japanese professor in the 1930’s , who’s dog waited every day for him at the train station even after he died. One of Richard Gere’s best performances in years. The film is quite sad, definitely to a cheesy and sappy point. It is hard to not let a tear escape at least once. The dog being so adorable made me lose myself. Pet lovers everywhere will relate to this weepy and wonderful film. This movie teach me there is nothing in this world superior than LOVE.
4. SCHINDLER’S LIST (1993)
“This list… is an absolute good. The list is life. All around its margins lies the gulf…”
– Itzhak Stern
Film depicts the horror of the holocaust and war. Superbly directed by Steven Spielberg and outstanding performances by Liam Neeson , Ben kingsley and rest of the supporting members. The tagline says “Whoever saves one life, saves the world entire”. Nothing is more valuable than the life of the human. It is a beautiful Black and white film except for the highlighted girl in the red dress, which has a brilliant symbolic meaning later in the film. Film taught me that you have not lived today until you have done something for someone who don’t repay you.
5.DAMINI – LIGHTNING (1993)
“Duniya ki har adaalat se badi ek adaalat hai … woh hai insaan ka apna zameer.“
“There is a court bigger than every court of this world … and that is the conscience of a person.“
Damini – Lightning is mostly remembered for Meenakshi Sheshadri ‘s career best performance, the role that became her identity. Film portrays how the power of one’s voice can create a difference in the society. Damini inspires me to always fight for truth no matter how the society reacts to it, to do the right things and stand against injustice. Freely live my life with a sense of self-worth, respect and dignity. Film tells you that your truth is more important than the facts.
Films will always help you to evolve yourself but it depends on you how you take it, as a source of entertainment or a root for change.
