Mumbai, the city of hope and dreams, where millions of people are constantly fighting for their mission. The most populous city in our country and also the financial capital of the country.
When you are giving in your 100% for your dream, at the same place, you have thousand more people giving their 110% to achieve their target. From your FLAT to ‘SUFFERING’ in LOCAL TRAINS, and then to your COMPETITIVE workplace and back to your HARD EARNED HOME, is the life of a normal man in Mumbai. In other words, it can be summarised as: “struggle, struggle, struggle.”
So, here are 8 Bollywood movies that show Mumbai in its truest form:-
It is a movie that did good business at the box office and got an appreciation for showing the ‘true picture’ of the life of a Model in the city. It is based on a small-town model that came to Mumbai to achieve her lifelong dreams. This realistic film shows how she manages to survive in Mumbai and ends up becoming a top model.
- ROCK ON!!
Mumbai is the second place after Bangalore, where Indie bands and other rock/metal genre artists are best. There aren’t a few bands wanting to make it big, and there are thousands. Rock on is one such movie that shows musicians’ lives in a band struggling against the industrial people of Mumbai.
This is one of my favourite film, which showcases the Bollywood side of Mumbai. It shows how a village girl comes to Mumbai and gets fooled by several people, and ultimately builds an identity for herself in the industry. I remember the auto walla charging her 999rs as fare.
The 26/11 Mumbai attack, a historical terrorist attack on our country. This hard-to-watch movie is based on this attack that moved ground for us.
This Anurag Kashyap movie is based upon the Bombay blasts that occurred in 1993. The plot for this movie attracted a lot of people. This movie has also received prestigious awards, one of them was the “grand jury prize”.
This incredible film is a story about five people who are affected by the 2006 Mumbai train bombings. This movie also contains big names like Soha Ali Khan, R. Madhavan, Imran khan, and Nishi Kant Kamath’s direction.
