One of the most recurrent sayings
that we've heard our elders trying to settle in our minds is that "good always
conquers evil". With the whole nation reminiscing in the festivities of Dussehra,
BollyCurry presents to you a few Bollywood movies that also celebrate the
victory of the virtuous.
One of the first movies that
comes to mind is Singham.
sets off with the atrocities of a corrupt politician, Jaikant Shikra, whose
vicious actions lead an honest officer to commit suicide. Consequently, the hero
makes an entry in the form of Bajirao Singham
, a police officer who scares the
daylights out of the malevolent. Despite the hurdles placed in his path, he
makes his way through the ups and downs, ending Shikra's reign and defeating the
Next on the list is Lajja
which had a stellar
including the cream of tinsel town. Vaidehi, the wife of a crude
businessman, flees from her house when her husband decides to terminate
her pregnancy. During her journey, she takes shelter at places where
women are being
tormented in the form of dowry, molestation and its likes. The movie
Vaidehi putting an end to all of this mayhem and standing for the rights
women. All the people who cause women to suffer are depicted as the evil
prevails in the society.
No movie depicts women power as
efficiently as Kahaani.
a heavily pregnant woman, lands in India to find her missing husband. The plot thickens
with several characters that weave the mysterious web and drowning the viewers
in curiosity. The story takes several turns, finally reaching climax wherein
Vidya kills the man responsible for the death of her husband and many more. Pretending
to be an expecting woman turned innocent victim, Vidya effortlessly gains
triumph as she avenges her husband's death.
One of the highest grosser of its
time, Singh Is Kinng
confers the same
message but in a slightly different manner. Harpreet Singh aka Happy takes on
the Herculean task of bringing back Lakhan Singh aka Lucky from the world of
crime. In the process, Happy has to fill in the position as the leader of Lucky's
men due to the latter being ill. Ultimately, Happy manages to reform Lucky and
his men, scaring away their vices.
The last movie on this list is
King Khan's own production, Ra.One.
The movie screams
how the story never ends until everything falls into place. Shekhar
Subramaniam, a video game programmer, develops a game in which the villain is
exponentially powerful compared to the hero, as desired by his son. This leads
him to get killed, initiating the war between good and evil, where it seems
impossible for good to triumph. But it all ends with the victory of the right
people, sinking evil deep down.
The list of movies of good empowering over evil is
huge and a slightly impossible to note all. So we'll leave it here and
look forward to your contribution. Until then, BollyCurry signs off,
wishing you all a
very happy Dussehra and hopes the vices burn down to bring happiness and
in your life.
