Bollywood movies are usually associated
with music, dance and romance. But, sometimes, it's much more deeper
than what meets the eye. One mainly watches movies for entertainment,
but there are certain movies that, along
with providing entertainment, give you lifelong lessons. And, today, on
Teacher's Day, BollyCurry brings to you some of these lifelong lessons
from some of your favourite movies. However, we did want to caution you
that the article contains some major spoilers
, so be sure to skip the paragraph for whatever movie you haven't watched yet!
A film that made you laugh, cry, and fall in love... all at the same
time. But more than that, it taught us some really important lessons of
life. One of these lessons is "go for excellence, success will follow"
as Rancho (Aamir Khan
) is heard saying quite a few times throughout the
movie. And even the movie signified the same, where Rancho is going for
excellence, while Chatur (Omi Vaidya
) is running after success. The
movie portrays how success ran after excellence, and, in the end,
excellence wins. A second vital lesson that is shown throughout the
movie is "study not to become a degree holder or to get a certificate,
but study to learn something new every day, and to gain knowledge". And
last, but not the least, "follow your dreams, become something that you
want to be because it gives you happiness, and not because the society
demands you to choose a certain career path". That's the message that is
crystal clear in the movie, with various examples, such as suicide,
wrong career selections, etc. Chase your dreams, and happiness will
Everyone should be
treated equally, irrespective of how they are and how they behave.
Everyone is special and
should be treated the same. Ishaan (Darsheel Safary
) is a dyslexic child

) an art teacher appears
lessons he teaches, touch everyone's heart. One of the most important
is to never look down on your children, don't discourage them, and give
attention they deserve. The film teaches us not to look down upon people
and to treat everyone equally as there is something special in all of
us! Some people have a rocky start but at the end they do reach heights
The sweet and silent story of Barfi
silently taught us numerous morals.
One of them is that trust is the most important thing in a
The foundation of any relation is trust, and it's trust that makes the
relationship stronger. Once you have earned that trust, do everything in
your power to cherish and keep it. Another essential lesson that we
learned is that when an opportunity
knocks at your door, you should take it by the horns! You never know
when circumstances may change, and you
opportunity of a lifetime. And with that follows another big lesson.
a life with regrets, you won't be able to amend the mistakes you once
made. So let go of regrets and enjoy life's small joys and
happiness; move on, but most importantly learn from
those mistakes. And lastly a lesson that we all should learn from is
that one should smile a lot and spread cheer. Always smile no matter
what situation you're in. A smile makes you feel
good, it also helps to reduce stress. Along with making you feel good, a
smile can also make someone else's day beautiful.
A movie that made a girl live again, ended up teaching us quite a
lot! One important lesson it taught us was to never give up and have
determination to succeed. No matter how hard life seems to be, there's
always light at the end of the tunnel. And sometimes all you need to
give a person is love and have faith in them, to
see them blossom in front of you. Also, it's not right to judge a person
due to what they don't have, but cherish what they do have;
you never know the intelligence of a person until it's tested. Just
person lacks something, doesn't mean he's any less than anyone else. As
Michelle (Rani Mukherjee) copes with her condition of being blind, dumb,
and deaf, she "sees" a light at the end of the tunnel in the form of
Debraj Sahai (Amitabh Bachchan
). Debraj almost mistreats her as he
teaches her to live and communicate even while being dumb, deaf, and
blind. And we realize in the end how much Michelle has learned when she
not only gets an university degree, but also goes back to her teacher,
Debraj, and tries to get him to remember the basic things in life as he
has been struck by Alzheimer's.
Can Dance (ABCD)
A movie based on dance and skills. One of
the central lessons of this movie is that you don't need to belong to a
high class society to achieve something. In this case, a dancer makes it
big, not because they were big, but because they had the skills, the
passion, and the mind to make it happen! Money doesn't mean everything
and it cannot stop you from reaching where you want to be. As Vishnu
(Prabhu Deva) and his disciples, D (Dharmesh Yelande) and Rocky (Salman
Yusuff Khan), fight for their dreams they prove again and again that
rich and powerful Jehangir Khan (Kay Kay Menon
) cannot stop them.
Another important lesson is to never give up on your dreams, no matter
how many obstacles come your way, never give up. Stick to them, and
fight everything that comes your way, and you shall be rewarded
Teachers are an important part of life. And
teachers don't always have to be your formal teachers. They could be
your friends, your superiors, or even movies. But what matters is the
lessons they teach and the guidance they give you. BollyCurry showed you
some of the lessons that we learnt or felt were important while
watching these movies. What did you learn? Today, on Teacher's Day,
BollyCurry would like to wish all teachers and people who have taught
something to someone in life, a very Happy Teacher's Day!
