August 6 marks the flag off to the Olympic Game Rio 2016, and India cheers on as participants gear up to give each other a tough fight. But how many of us even know about the lives of India athletes participating in the Olympics this year? Do we even know what it took for them to proudly represent the country on a platform this huge? Well, while we still continue to live our lives with ignorance, here is an effort made by the Hindi film industry to make us known to the lives of the real stars. Here are list of films, which if weren’t made, we would have had no clue about the lives of athletes in our country:
Priyanka Chopra as Mary Kom in the biopic of the boxer packed quite a punch at the Box Office. The life of the boxer was at its best portrayal not only when Priyanka was shown boxing in the ring, but also when glimpses from the personal life of Mary were shown to inspire the viewers. Mary Kom has had many an achievements in her career, but only many knew of the hard work and the determination that went into making her win a bronze at the 2012 Summer Olympics. While apart from cricket many other sports go unnoticed, Mary Kom was just the right film to make people know about the woman who made their country proud.
The story based on Milkha Singh, an Olympian and a national champion runner, spoke of a time the young generation was unknown to. In a backdrop of the India’s struggle for independence, the man emerges from a series of let down to become one of the fastest runners in the country. Tha man has quite an inspiration tale and Farhan Akhtar as Milkha Singh didn’t disappoint with the performance and hard work. Farhan went through a whole body transformation to play the role, and left no stone unturned when it came to training to look the part.
While the saying, ‘Child is the father of man’ has had a lot to implicate in our lives, and it is through children like Budhia Singh that one can derive inspiration from. He is a wonder boy of sorts to have run 48 marathons when he was only five-year-old. What adds to the film is Manoj Bajpayee playing coach to the boy adds much more value to the film as far as acting is concerned. The journey of this boy is quite an amazing take on how children who are gifted with talents are being exploited by their guardians. For more you will have to go to the theatres soon as the film is to release just tomorrow.
‘Tumhare Pass Sirf Satar Minute Hain… Aur Yeh Satar Minute Tumse Koi Cheen Nahi Sakta’, left the theatre ringing with hoots and whistles as Shah Rukh Khan continued to encourage the girls to win the hockey game. One of the best films on sports, the film left the audience with a feeling of pride and patriotism. The film was inspired by the team’s 2002 win in the Common Wealth Games, and broke all stereotypes on girls actively pursuing sports as a career.
