We recommend five films that honour our independence warriors' sacrifices, and promote patriotism, brotherhood, and togetherness in diversity, as India commemorates its 75th Independence Day.
1. Rang De Basanti
The film's plot is based on current-day Delhi University and explores parallels between how things would change if today's youth were as driven as those in pre-independence India. A favourite among the masses, this movie can be watched a number of times.
