VIDEO: 5 Indian Films That Dealt With The Issue Of Black Money

Last conducted in the year 1978 to tackle the influx of counterfeit money and undisclosed accounts held by businessmen and politicians, demonetisation is a process in which currency of high figures is made illegal for any kind of financial exchange. In just one single masterstroke, PM Narendra Modi single handedly made the mountains of illegal money into trash. What must have occurred behind closed doors and underground attics is something film buffs will definitely relate to. Imagine all the various scenarios you’ve seen in films that include frenzied politicians and white collar businessmen running around and getting the jolt of their lives.

In case you want to perk up those memories once again, here are 5 Indian films based on black money.

But who can ever get this far without getting their hands dirty? Guru is the story of India’s biggest tycoon who created an empire through legal and illegal means.

While it’s got all the style, splendour and starry-eyed surprises that a Rajinikanth film can offer, Sivaji The Boss is actually a socio-political commentary hidden inside a typical blockbuster. Sivaji The Boss stands out as the first Indian film to depict the process of demonetisation.
