Mumbai: On the Occasion of republic day, we salute and thank everyone who contributed in making and implementation of our constitution. We hope the constitution of India, the largest democracy in the world, is followed and implemented when needed.
There are many movies describing the importance of Republic Day. After enjoying the parade, you can watch a movie dedicated to the country. Here is a list to pick from:
Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar, 2002
A list of movies to watch on Republic Day would be incomplete without one about BR Ambedkar, the architect of the Indian Constitution. In 2002, a bilingual feature film on Ambedkar’s life, titled Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar, was released. Directed by Jabbar Patel, it stars Malayali actor Mammootty in the titular role. The movie has won three National Film Awards.
Speak of patriotic movies and the Sunny Deol-starrer is the first one that comes to mind. Set in 1971, Border tells the story of Indian soldiers who fight against a large Pakistani force. The movie includes the soul-stirring song “Sandese Aate Hai”.
The Ashutosh Gowariker-directed film was India’s official entry to the Oscars in 2002. Starring Aamir Khan and Gracy Singh in lead roles, it revolves around villagers in Central India in 1893 who must play a cricket match against the British to be exempted from burdensome taxes.
Rang De Basanti, 2006
Rang De Basanti is about a group youngsters who are cast in docudrama about Indian freedom fighters and how that opportunity turns them into rebels for a cause. The movie has an ensemble cast that includes Aamir Khan, Siddharth, R Madhavan and Soha Ali Khan.
Raazi tells the story of a young woman named Sehma Khan, an undercover Indian agent who is married into a Pakistani military family to gather intelligence. The movie, which stars Alia Bhatt in the lead role, is based on the novel Calling Sehmat by Harinder Singh Sikka.
