Also, our very own Bollywood industry has made several movies on soldiers and freedom fighters that have given the audiences goosebumps while watching the same.
Patriotic movies are one of the best to watch and give a whole new meaning to how important our country and its people are. Check out the 6 best patriotic movies that you could binge watch below...
Border released in the year 1997 and is considered to be one of the best patriotic movies ever made. The J P Dutta starrer was a blockbuster hit and is considered a classic. The movie has set the bar too high and we hope a movie like Border will once again be made in Bollywood for the younger generation to see.
Chak De! India
The Shahrukh Khan starrer Chak De! India was one of a kind and gave importance to hockey and women's sports. There were several instances in the movie that gave us goosebumps and indeed the movie is one of SRK's best ever.
Rang De Basanti
The Aamir Khan, Sharman Joshi and Kunal Kapoor starrer Rang De Basanti was an instant hit and it connected well with the audiences. The storyline blending from the freedom struggle of Bhagat Singh to modern-day political atrocities, Rang De Basanti will be remembered as Aamir Khan's best ever.
The Legend Of Bhagat Singh
Ajay Devgn showcased the freedom struggle of Bhagat Singh on the silver screen and the movie went on to be revolutionary. The Rajkumar Santoshi directed patriotic movie went on to win the National Film Awards for Best Feature Film in Hindi and Best Actor for Ajay Devgn.
Mangal Pandey: The Rising
Aamir Khan's Mangal Pandey: The Rising showcased the first Indian rebellion of 1857, in which a brave sepoy, Mangal Pandey revolted against the British and laid the groundwork for the Indian independence movement. The movie is also considered as one of the best patriotic movies in India.
After Border, J P Dutta's LOC Kargil took the country by a storm with a star-studded affair. The movie featured Sanjay Dutt, Ajay Devgn, Saif Ali Khan, Suniel Shetty, Kareena Kapoor, Esha Deol and Raveena Tandon and was equally good as Border. If you haven't watched LOC Kargil yet, do it now!
