Be it a war movie like Border or a sports-based drama like Chak De India, Bollywood has shown us the varied shades of patriotism. On the occasion of Republic Day today, we bring you some scenes that made our heart beat for our country. Take a look.
The last scene of Lagaan is bound to make you teary-eyed. Aamir Khan, as Bhuvan, knows that a lot is at stake as he gears up for the last ball. As he hits a six, he not only frees the villagers from the burden of taxes, but also wins the hearts of the audience.
In this scene, Akshay Kumar highlights the strengths and achievements of our country. You can’t help but feel a sense of pride while watching this sequence.
Chak De India
In a country that is divided by states, Shah Rukh Khan, who plays the role of the coach of the women’s hockey team, shows how a sport can be the unifying factor.
Naseeruddin Shah makes his final call to the Mumbai Police Commissioner and elaborates on all that is wrong with the system today – he highlights how the common man’s life is at stake everyday because of terrorism.
Think of Border and you think of the heart-wrenching number, Sandese Aate Hain. The climax, where Sunny Deol fearlessly leads his army to attack the enemy, too leaves an indelible impact.
Rang De Basanti
Atul Kulkarni mouthing Ramprasad Bismil’s famous poem makes for a memorable scene.
