Patriotism is in the air! It’s that time of the year when the whole nation celebrates its Republic Day. The idea of being patriotic has different meanings for different people. But here we are especially talking about millennials who are known to be dynamic with their approaches. For them, it is more heartfelt. It is about love, respect, and positivity which is in there in their hearts for the nation. By the way, do you know, there are many Bollywood movies which perfectly denote such millennial patriotism.
Over the years, there have been notable changes in the expression of patriotism in the movies. Here we’ll be taking a look at some of the best possible references from Bollywood which can be used to exemplify what patriotism actually means to the millennials:
Swades was a good one and can be definitely used to denote millennial patriotism and how? The lead in the flick actually reconnected with national values. Interestingly, the movie disapproves of imperceptive patriotism.
2. Chak De India!
Youth greatly associates with sports. Everyone wants their nation to win, right? Well, it is also patriotism! Chack De India greatly highlights the patriotism in the context of the sports. Some other examples can be Bhaag Milkha Bhaag and Mary Kom etc.
The urge to disapprove of some gruesome external forces (like terrorism and hatred) unites us all. And Neerja is full of that sincere feeling. Isn’t it patriotism? Another popular example can be Airlift.
4. Rang De Basanti
Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra’s Rang De Basanti is self-explanatory when it comes to freedom and patriotic essence. A more modern kinda presentation to a typical revolution. This film obviously goes well with the millennials.
