We all know that Bollywood has a lot of dance, drama and dhamaka! Apart from these 'masala' movies, directors have also stepped ahead and taken some serious themes such as terrorism into movies. On September 11, we remember the most dreadful terror events that happened twelve years ago in the United States. These attacks which are most often referred to as September 11 or 9/11 attacks have been used as themes in a few Hindi movies.
These movies usually dig deep into issues related to the attacks. Most often we have seen films portraying the life of few individuals post the attacks. Filmmakers have tried their best to depict various aspects of the life Muslims face due to stereotyping them as terrorists.
A film being more than just art, can act as a mirror to the society and reflect what happens around us. At the same time, it can be the other way round. We have seen hundreds of movies that have inspired us and changed certain ways of our thinking.
Movies like My Name Is Khan and New York try their best to show different perspectives to issues that an individual faces. During terror activities such as the 9/11 attacks, most news channels may focus only the physical destructions and loss of lives but miss out the emotional trauma faced by many. It is art that brings out this element and we salute such movies that send chills down our spine.
