Movies!!! They have been an integral part of my life. Entertainment, motivation, art, culture, music, dance and what not, it’s a complete package.
By and large, I takeaway only the things to be learnt and ignore the points that need not be argued about. Why waste your time on things that are not in your control? Rather, I prefer to reminisce the little moments of happiness and entertainment the movie had.
Ever since the lockdown, Netflix and Amazon Prime had been our to-go options. We, as a family watched so much of content to keep ourselves entertained, to ensure we have good family time. Friday nights usually are a pop-corn and movie time at home. Starting from old classics to some of the latest releases we watched most of the best rated movies. Don’t judge me on this, we do have game nights and other family time too.
So, each movie is in a different genre and has a distinguishing element to itself. I thought, I would share top five movies here, where the protagonist is an extremely positive person who has a focus towards a goal and who can only see the positivity in every single situation and finally achieves his / her goals. They say “There is light is at the end of the tunnel” and if you are left in the tunnel without any directions, you got to deal with it.
The top five most positive movies you should not miss watching:
- The pursuit of happiness
This movie will leave you teary eyed. Such a classic, you should not miss watching it. It is based on a true story about a man named Christopher Gardner. Gardner is forced to live out of streets with is son, as his wife leaves him. He invests in a machine and finds it difficult to meet his ends. His focus drives him every single day and this movie shows his extremely focused attitude to achieve his goal. Please go watch it if you have not already done so.
2. Cast Away
A wonderful movie, you should not miss. Love, friendship, anger, rage, excitement, happiness, misery and every possible human emotion is beautifully shown in the movie. It is the story about Chuck Noland, a FedEx manager who boards a delivery plane going overseas which gets caught in a horrendous storm and crashes into the Pacific. He is the sole survivor on an unknown island. For four years, it was survival and when he survived, he was compelled to live.
Extremely emotional movie, the focus and positivity and how he deals with it when he comes out of the situation is all a feast to the eyes.
This movie is based on a real life incident and there could be no better movie to describe about tough decisions that need to be made at the right time.
This is a story of a pilot “Sully” who decides that the accident plane would not make it to the airport, and so he chooses to land in the Hudson River.
This is one of my most favorite genres as it talks about a brave woman. Rani Mehra is a shy, meek and young Punjabi woman from Delhi. One day prior to her wedding, her fiancé tells her that he no longer wishes to marry her.
Rani decides to go alone on her honeymoon and there after it’s all about life lessons that she learns. Brilliantly crafted movie, which shows how an independent women can survive in any situation, given a chance. It also gives Rani the opportunity to unveil her real self and turn into a totally new human being.
5. The Terminal
This is a heart touching movie of Viktor Navorski, a traveler from the fictional nation of Krakozhia, arrives at New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport, only to discover that his passport is suddenly no longer valid.
The United States no longer recognizes Krakozhia as an independent country after the outbreak of a civil war, and Viktor is not permitted to either enter the country or return home as he is now stateless.
There are so many incidents in this movie, which you could directly relate to your corporate world. The way he picks up tasks and does it earns him a job, the way he patiently waits for his turn, earns him friends, the attitude of the protagonist is just a beauty!!!
I think I am repeating myself here and don’t mind doing so, if you have not watched any of the above, please do go and watch them right away!!!
In all the above movies, there is only driving factor, “Belief””. Belief in yourself, make the best out of any situation and success will follow. There are so many tiny bits in all these movies, which are extremely soul satisfying and gives you chance to relook at how we are currently dealing with our lives. Don’t we take our lives too serious? Introspect and you will realize it’s a big “YES”.
Take one step at a time and be sure you are going to reach your goals. Positively is all that matters!!!
