Movies to binge this Independence Day
This movie is about the real-life battle of Longewella from the 1971 IndoPak war. This was one of J.P Dutta’s finest creations acted by some of the legends that have touched everyone’s heart.
This is a story of a PVC awardee brave Indian soldier – Capt. Vikram Batra, who shot to fame and became a household name during the Kargil War in 1999. His indomitable spirit and his unflinching courage in chasing the Pakistani soldiers out of Indian territory contributed immensely to India finally winning the Kargil War in 1999.
The Legend of Bhagat Singh
Rajkumar Santoshi’s fantastic retelling of the story of the young freedom fighters Bhagat Singh, Sukhdev, and Rajguru, who willingly tied the noose around their necks, filled us with pride and made us introspect.
Rang De Basanti
A fancier version of telling the story of Bhagat Singh, the film’s narrative is rooted in current day Delhi University and explored parallels between how things would change if today’s youth were as driven as those in pre-independent India.
Uri: The Surgical Strike:
The film is based on the surgical strikes conducted in 2016 by the Indian Army, against militant launch pads in Pakistan occupied Kashmir (PoK). 35-50 terrorists were reportedly killed in the covert operation, in retaliation to the terrorist attack in Uri that killed 19 Indian soldiers.
Ashutosh Gowariker’s seminal film, which established him in the big league, carefully charted the journey of a few Indian farmers taking on officers of the British Army in a cricket match to save their fields and their crops.

Quite singularly the most technically proficient sports film to be made in India, the movie put us on the journey with these 15 everyday girls to eternal glory.
Following up on the gigantic success of Dil Chahta Hai, Farhan Akhtar made this movie about a clueless kid finding the meaning of his life atop a hill at 26000 ft after defeating insurgents from Pakistan.

Based on Indian army officers imprisoned on the other side of the LOC, this movie boasts of compelling performances from its cast including Amitabh Bachchan, Sanjay Dutt, Akshaye Khanna, and Kay Kay Menon.
Directed by Anurag Singh, Kesari is a tale of Havildar Ishar Singh (Akshay Kumar) and 20 other soldiers of the British Indian Army. The period war drama featured the valour shown by the few Jat Sikh soldiers against an Afghan platoon of thousands. Akshay Kumar is impeccable in leading the dramatisation of the Battle of Saragarhi.
Neeraj Pandey’s directorial debut is probably one of the most subtly masked patriotic movies in Bollywood. It evokes the pride of being a common Indian, even though the film is packed in the form of an action-thriller. However, it also gives you something to think about in the end.
