Gadar and Jogi

"Our ability to reach unity in diversity will be the beauty and the test of our civilization." - Mahatma Gandhi.

The genuine beauty of India rests in the country's secularism, which promotes harmony among a wide range of cultures, races, and religions. But occasionally, the political climate turns sour, which causes some unpleasant situations.

Here are some Bollywood movies that very honestly hold up a mirror to the society.

Gadar- Ek Prem Katha

Gadar- Ek Prem Katha

Gadar: Ek Prem Katha is a 2001 Indian Hindi-language romantic period action drama film directed by Anil Sharma and set during the Partition of India in 1947.

In August, 1947, when, after three hundred years in India, the British finally left, the subcontinent was partitioned into two independent nation states: Hindu-majority India and Muslim-majority Pakistan. One of the largest human migrations in history started right away as millions of Muslims journeyed to West and East Pakistan (the latter of which is now known as Bangladesh), while millions of Hindus and Sikhs went the other way. Many hundreds of thousands never made it.

Bombay

Bombay

Bombay is a 1995 Indian Tamil-language romantic drama film written and directed by Mani Ratnam, starring Arvind Swamy and Manisha Koirala. The film tells the story of an inter-religious family in Bombay before and during the Bombay riots, which took place between December 1992 and January 1993 after the demolition of the Babri Masjid led to religious tensions between Hindu and Muslim communities.

Black Friday

The investigation into the 1993 series of bombings in Bombay is the subject of the movie that tells the various experiences of everyone involved, including police, conspirators, victims, and middlemen. A rough estimate puts the death toll from the Bombay riots in December 1992 and January 1993 at 900. The 1992 demolition of the Babri Masjid in Ayodhya in response to widespread Muslim protests and the subsequent escalation of hostilities over the Ram Temple issue by Hindu mobs were the main causes of the riots.

Jogi

Jogi

In the upcoming film Jogi, Diljit Dosanjh plays a Punjabi man whose family is everything to him. But in 1984, when Delhi finds itself in the fire of the Anti-Sikh Riots, he must do everything in his capacity to protect the ones he loves. The 1984 Anti-Sikh Riots, also known as the 1984 Sikh Massacre, was a series of organized pogroms against Sikhs in India following the assassination of Indira Gandhi by her Sikh bodyguards.

These unfortunate incidents are however a part of our history and kudos to Bollywood for bringing it out so perfectly.
