Bollywood has a spectrum of film genres and one of them is about the films that are adapted by real life incidents. Some of the movies are biopics and few are made under the influence of certain activities in the past, which the audience should know about. Many such films have been made and most of them have connected to the audience.
Today we are going to pick the top 5 films which were adapted from a real life incidence.
5. Firaaq – A Thousand True Stories
From its extremely dark opening scene of a truck dumping many carcasses at a memorial park site for mass burial, Nandita Das influences it to clear that her directorial debut, Firaaq won`t be a simple watch. A fictionalized record of true stories set one month after the awful collective mobs of Gujarat in 2002. Firaaq concentrates on a modest bunch of characters whose lives are changed hopelessly by the riots. Firaaq in Arabic translates to both separation and quest. And, Nandita Das has made sure we get a taste of both!
Its an Indian War film based on the Battle of Longewala during the Indo-Pakistan War on 1971. It is a real life adaptation of the soldiers fighting the war. It was directed by J.P.Dutta and appealed to every Indian as it touched the right chord.
3. Special 26
It is directed by Neeraj Pandey and had an amazing star cast with actors like Akshay Kumar, Manoj Bajpayee, Jimmy Shergill, Anupam Kher and Divya Dutta. It is inspired by the 1987 Opera House heist where a group of goons posing as CBI executed an income tax raid on the jeweler in Mumbai. The actors did a great job in making us believe in their character. Gangs of Wasseypur mirrors the turbulent and touchy development of current India with fierce true to life power.
2. Gangs of Wasseypur
It was written and directed by the very talented Anurag Kashyap. The movie has 2 parts taking us to the era where Jharkhand and Bihar were the crime capitals. It revolves around the families of coal mafia of Dhanbad and the underlying power struggles, politics and revenge of these families. Gangs of Wasseypur mirror the turbulent and touchy development of current India with fierce true to life power.
1. Black Friday
The film depends on columnist Hussain Zaidi`s intensely explored book by a similar name, and what makes Black Friday so disputable – and the motivation behind why it was such a fight to convey this film to screen – is on account of it takes names. It`s an overcome film that records precisely what happened, in light of broad research and meetings. No names have been changed; no fanciful characters have been made.Anurah manages to tell each character’s story and succeeds in capturing what’s going on in their heads.
