While you are trying to establish a successful career, save money for your retirement and fit in the society, you have suppressed your inner world. This world is beyond the traps laid by the society to mould you into a robot who doesn’t dare to step out of his comfort zone. Are you looking for some inspiration to let go of superficial security and chase your dreams? Here are 5 Bollywood movies to motivate you.
1. 3 Idiots
Aamir Khan’s 3 idiots taught us the rule: Chase excellence; success will follow. It’s a story about three students who are studying in an Engineering college, but how different their lives really are. Farhan’s storyline touched our heart. He wanted to be a photographer but was stuck in engineering. This is the story of many students. We get entangled in the mess created by the hopes, desires and expectations of other people. But how many of us genuinely try to hear the tiny voice which urges us to break free? If you are looking for some inspiration to step out of the boundary and chase your dreams, watch this movie.
2. Wake up Sid
Wake up Sid is among Ranbir Kapoor’s best movies. It is a coming of age story with an inkling of romance. Being ‘failure’ as per society’s standard doesn’t really make you a loser. That’s what has been taught in wake up Sid. Ranbir Kapoor’s character is very relatable, and you will end up falling in love with him. As he discovers himself and finds his passion, we feel motivated to hear our calling, too!
Tamasha is one of those movies that make you ponder over life for a long period of time. Do you think you have lost yourself while pleasing others? Do you feel like a different person altogether? Many people carry masks that hide their real self from the world. That’s what Tamasha is all about—to drop that mask and let the world see how imaginative, creative and rare person you are. R anbir Kapoor’s character goes through a tremendous transformation throughout the movie. One thing remains consistent: his inability to walk on the line dictated by the society.
Queen is an empowering movie. Lots of breakups happen every day. When the security of a relationship is snatched away from you, you get to see your raw self—no matter how weepy, dependent and fragile that side is. Queen has taught us: You are much more than someone’s life partner. As Rumi said, ‘You are a universe in ecstatic motion.’ Don’t ditch relationships, but learn to find yourself beyond what is visible to people on the surface level.
5. Bhaag Milkha Bhaag
Do you need motivation to work harder for your dreams? Are you scared to fail, and therefore, scared to try? Then, you must watch Bhaag Milkha Bhaag. It’s a real story about our very own flying Sikh, Milkha Singh. He defeated the odds to attain the title of being one of the best runners in the world. You will feel inspired by his journey and understand that no dream is unachievable.
