Top 10 Bollywood Movies Based On 1947

Top 10 Bollywood Movies Based On 1947 Hindi Article

Few Bollywood films have attempted to recreate the tragedy of the partition between India and Pakistan, which has always been the largest tragedy for both countries. Even though this is a touchy subject, the filmmakers have managed to portray the brutality and companionship that may exist in such harsh circumstances. We admire their efforts since these Bollywood films about the partition of India and Pakistan bring back memories of the time of our independence and India's split. Here are the Top 10 Bollywood movies based on 1947-

1. Sardar

Sardar is a 1994 Indian-based true-life drama film directed by Ketan Mehta and written by renowned playwright Vijay Tendulkar on Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, one of India's greatest independence warriors. Retrospective screenings of the movie were held on August 12, 2016, to mark the 70th anniversary of Indian Independence Day, at the Independence Day Film Festival, which was organized by the Indian Directorate of Film Festivals and the Ministry of Defence.

2. Pinjar

Chandraprakash Dwivedi's 2003 period drama movie Pinjar is shot in India. The name of the title in English means cage, which matches best with the plot of the film. A Hindu woman is kidnapped by a Muslim guy in the days before Partition. As the borders between India and Pakistan are established, she soon finds herself living in a new nation and being pushed into marriage

3. Khamosh Pani

This is a Pakistani film but it deserves to be on this list. A widowed mother and her young boy are portrayed in the 2003 Indo-Pakistani movie Khamosh Pani as they manage the major shifts in their Punjabi village in the late 1970s. The movie, made in a Pakistani town, was screened in India. At the 56th Locarno International Film Festival in Switzerland, it took home seven prizes, including the Golden Leopard for Best Film, Best Actress, and Best Direction.

4. Gadar: Ek Prem Katha

The film's story is about a Sikh guy who saved a wealthy Muslim girl during India's partition. He still saves Sakeena even though the partition causes him to lose his family. They fall in love with each other and decide to marry each other. Sakina learns that her parents are still alive after a long absence when she goes to see them. Sakeena's parents, however, stop her from reuniting with her husband. Tara Singh travels to Pakistan to retrieve his wife, conflicts with everyone, and returns with Sakeena.

5. Hey Ram

The story of this fictional film centers around Saketh Ram (Kamal Hassan). During the Calcutta riots during the partition, his wife Aparna (Rani Mukherji) is assaulted and killed. He sets out to kill Mahatma Gandhi (Naseeruddin Shah) because he believes that he is to blame for all the issues facing the nation. The rest of the film reveals whether he was successful in his aim.
