Movies that have influenced you

I remember I saw "Chack De" - a bollywood flick.

The next day, I resigned from my job. 😁

[I'm not kidding.]

Name the movies that have influenced you and why?

-The Big K-
Its not "Chack De" biggie, Its "Chak de -India".

The movie that influenced me is "Swades- we the people".
Its also a bollywood flick. Its a story about NRI who visits india. :smile:

Hi,
i am influenced by the movie-"HEROES".Though it was not amongst bollywood hits but the message it imparted was really nice one.I liked it more because i want to join air force and i got motivated by that.

"Schindler's List" has to be the most influential movie I have ever seen.
I'm more influenced from reading books (since I can imagine any scene from the words), but if there was a movie that has inspired me somewhat, especially in engineering, it would be Iron Man! 😉

😁 Iron Man. Are you hiding a secret project from all of us? 😉

Lots of movies actually, but the most influential one would be "Homeless to Harvard: The Liz Murray Story". Its a true story.. simply amazing...

"Schindler's List" has to be the most influential movie I have ever seen.
I too go for "Schindler's List" , "Swades" , "Roja"
but the most influenced movies are all the movies came from "Bhagavatgeeta"
The statements said in that book are excellent and if used in daily life we can become a very good and great person.

And all Charlie chaplin movies ofcourse making people smile is the best thing in life i believe and i do 😁😁

Explanation is not just enough you need to experience it. Try going to a Orphan age or old aged home or just look at differently abled children they will definitly influence you.

I have a cousin who is differently abled when im with her she teaches me what courage is, fair heart is, what purity in life is without uttering word i tell you😀
Agreed !!! Good experience.

I like the bollywood movie IQBAL in which the main character a disabled person win over all problems coming through his way and get the position in cricket team.

Two of the influential movies are Cindrella Man & Swades.

One teaches how to be bold enough in your life to fight against all odds and come up with bright n shining stars!!!!!!😛

And the other one teaches that there is everything around us to utilise.
We just need to think and be proactive and everthing will fall in your way with fruitful results 😉
