As noted by critics, the film has “stirred the popular imagination,” leading to a number of Gandhigiriprotests in India and in the United States: “For generations born after Gandhi’s assassination, Munnabhai, the eponymous hero of the film, has rendered “Gandhism” passé and “Gandhian” arcane.

11. Mary Kom
The biopic, as is clear by now, is about MC Mary Kom, a five-time boxing world champion and Olympic bronze medallist from India. With the support of her husband Onler Ko, the boxer, who was once considered down and out, made a comeback to win two major medals. The episodic demonstration of Kom’s obstacles, including a father who objects to her boxing, a vengeful sports federation and an ill-timed pregnancy, seems rather breathless.

How can one not love a movie about children crafted with utmost compassion – children with special needs at that? But, it is not the only reason I liked Tare Zameen Par. This is about a child who suffers because no one around him recognizes that he is a slow learner. The beauty of the narration is that the message applies to all children – learning disability or not. How can creativity not deserve a place in academics? It also points a very subtle finger at how we build conformation in our system right at the roots.
