Bollywood's 5 Most Inspirational Sports Based Movies

Sha












It is said time and again that Bollywood is a religion in India.
Therefore, it is not hard to see why Bollywood films impact viewers so much. However, there are certain films which inspire people irrespective of the cult following that the Hindi Film Industry enjoys. The movies which evoke inspiration in people are basically based on sports as they tend to evoke a sense of spirit and patriotism in viewers.
Here is our pick of Bollywood's 5 most inspirational sports based movies.

1. Dhan Dhana Dhan Goal


'Dhan Dhana Dhan Goal' revolves around the game of football. It deals with the story of a struggling football team from Southall, that fight all odds to emerge victorious and, as a result, save their cherished ground. The scene where the coach of the team (Boman Irani), takes them to the home of Manchester United in order to inspire them to winning ways is a high point and truly scores high in terms of inspirational quotient.

2. Lagaan


'Lagaan', which was nominated for the Academy Awards, told a tale of grit and resilience in the British-ruled India. A group of villagers agree to play a match of cricket against the British officers to save the village from paying exorbitant taxes to the Britishers, despite having no idea about how the game is played. The film showed that anything is possible if you're determined and united in your fight for a cause.

3. Chak De! India


A failed hockey player, Shah Rukh Khan brings together girls of conflicting ethnicity to form the Indian Women's Hockey Team that take opposition in their stride and go on to become the most successful women's team in Indian hockey history. The film serves an example of how cultural harmony combined and hard-work help in garnering victory.

4. Iqbal


Iqbal is a beautiful and heart-warming tale of a deaf and mute guy who aspires to join the Indian Cricket Team. Iqbal's dream of becoming a cricketer is given a thrust when Naseeruddin Shah, an ex-cricketer, decides to coach him. Owing purely to his will and industriousness, Iqbal is able to achieve and live his biggest dream.

5. Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar


The film that catapulted Aamir Khan to superstardom chose the medium of an unconventional sport to highlight its theme. The protagonists of the film take part in a cycling race which tests their sense of strong will and desire to succeed in life. As obvious, the one who works the hardest emerges victorious in the race and symbolically, in life. (Entertainment, MensXP.com)
