People of India are all set to celebrate the 75th year of Independence on August 15, 2022. Ahead of Independence Day, every citizen of our country is eyeing on Commonwealth Games 2022's last day as India has so far won 56 medals at the global competition.
Talking about Independence Day and the entertainment industry, it has portrayed desh bhakti in a very unique manner. Like Bollywood, Tollywood and other industries, the Marathi Film Industry has also produced some memorable patriotic films that are a must-watch for all. So, ahead of Independence Day 2022, let's have a look at the 5 best patriotic Marathi films.
Chinmay Mandlekar-starrer Krantiveer Rajguru is one of the best patriotic films in Marathi. The actor's performance as freedom fighter Shivram Hari Rajguru left everyone spellbound. Krantiveer Rajguru was released in 2010 and was directed by Ashok Kamle.
Vasudev Balwant Phadke
2008's popular film Vasudev Balwant Phadke directed by Gajendra Ahire, will be remembered for Ajinkkya Deo's amazing performance. The film showed the freedom struggle of freedom fighter Vasudev Balwant Phadke in the 18th century.
Yoddha is a unique film as it is not based on a freedom fighter or struggles but on the life of a police officer. In the film, Sourabh Gokhale played the lead role and his performance was loved by all. The film also stars Priya Berde, Sharmishtha Raut and Anvay Berde in key roles. Yoddha is a perfect watch on the occasion of Independence Day.
Maratha Battalion tells the story of Indian soldiers from the Marathi Battalion. The film starred late actors Laxmikant Berde, Vijay Chavan, Ramesh Bhatkar and actress Alka Kubal. It was directed by Nagesh Daarak.
Lokmanya: Ek Yugpurush
We all praise Om Raut for Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior. However, his first Marathi film Lokmanya: Ek Yugpurush turned out to be a game changer for him. Subodh Bhave's portrayal of Bal Gangadhar Tilak aka Lokmanya Tilak was loved by all. It was indeed one of the best films that were made in Marathi on patriotism.
Filmibeat wishes our readers a Happy Independence Day in advance!
