Movies are a reflection of the society. Not only do they portray the grim reality of the society, they also provide a clearer picture of the real life incidents on screen- be it in the form of Biopics, Controversial Incidents or any other happenings. The plentitude of biopics (Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, Sarbjit, Mary Kom) and real-life incidents (Talvar, Not a Love Story) which have flocked the theatres recently is a clear intimation that these films are gaining mass acceptance. So, let us take a look at some of the real-life stories that definitely deserve to be made into a movie:
1) The Vyapam Scam:
The Vyapam Scam, which involved bribery to gain better positions in entrance exams conducted by Vyapam (MP Examination Board), led to some 23-40 unnatural daunting deaths. The facts and figures pertaining to this case make it no less than an intense Bollywood Thriller. A tale of Murder and Deceit amidst the backdrop of Corruption, involving people of varied strata- from Politicians to Government Officials, has the potential to be made into a fine Political Thriller! Filmmakers, are you listening?
2) Sheena Bora Murder Case:
One of the most sensational murder mysteries in the history of India, Sheena Bora Murder Case has all the ingredients needed for a typical Bollywood Thriller. Such was the complexity of the case, that it could put even ACP Pradyuman to shame! A second wife of her third husband is charged along with her third husband for killing her daughter from her first husband, who was having an affair with her third husband’s son from his first wife. Puzzled? Well, every mortal being would be! If the plot summary itself is so complicated, the movie would certainly be intriguing as hell.
3) UPSC topper Tina Dabi’s Love Story-
Move over thrillers, it’s time to see some romance on the silver screen. UPSC topper Tina Dabi and her affair with the 2nd rank holder, Athar Aamir-ul Shafi Khan hogged all the limelight in almost all the social media platforms for quite a few days. Their journey to success, how they fell for each other and how they broke past the barriers of communalism would make for a picture-perfect romantic drama. Don’t you think so?
4) Surgical strikes in PoK:
India’s befitting reply to the ghastly Uri Attacks, in the form of Surgical strikes, is something we could only imagine of. A classic tale of valor and heroism, where Indian Army Commandos dismantled seven terror camps and killed around 50 terrorists, it is something that even our future generation should know and be proud of. And what’s better than making a film out of it?
5) A biopic on Anuradha Koirala:
Not many people may know her, but her work is reminiscent of the fact that humanity still exists in this world. Anuradha Koirala is the founder of a Non-Profit Organization, ‘Maiti Ghar’ in Kathmandu, Nepal, that has rescued thousands of victims of Sex Trafficking and provided rehabilitation to many of them. She is a proud recipient of the CNN Heroes Awards (2010), Mother Teresa Awards (2014) and Padma Shri (2017). Her journey has not been a cakewalk, but despite all the difficulties, Koirala has been actively doing her work for the last 20-25 years. Such a great soul definitely deserves a biopic as a tribute to her selfless service!
