75th Independence day: Bollywood movies to binge-watch – Firstpost

A special ceremony is organised and the Prime Minister of India addresses the nation from the Red Fort in New Delhi and hoists the national flag.
India celebrates its 75th independence day today, to commemorate the occasion on which we gained our freedom from the 200-year-long British rule. After years of struggle and with numerous lives lost, India finally got its independence on 15 August in 1947, with the last Governor-General of India Lord Mountbatten overseeing the partition of India and Pakistan. Each year, on this day, a special ceremony is organised and the Prime Minister of India addresses the nation from the Red Fort in New Delhi and hoists the national flag.
Independence day is a gazetted holiday across the country and on this day, people prefer to stay at home to watch the PM’s address or to fly kites. Many people switch on to their favourite Bollywood movies revolving around the theme of patriotism to boost themselves.
As the nation celebrates its 75th independence day, here is a list of Bollywood films based on armed forces:
Released in 1997, Border is among the iconic films based on the armed forces. The film revolves around the war of 1971 and how a small battalion of Indian soldiers goes up against a large Pakistani force in the region of Longewala. The film became a rage and an instant hit.
