5 movies that may help you to fight the gloominess of Pandemic

Pandemic taught us to practice austerity and we are learning to do more with a lot less and it's a phase when many of us will try to draw hope-inspiration and zeal to march ahead by overcoming our hurdles from movies-books-anecdotes etc. Here is the list of 5 movies that I would recommend, do watch them at your convenience to face life with a different pair of shades - you can thank me later! Let us know our editor about your thoughts : 1. The Shawshank Redemption (1994) - When you need hope, you'll look for Shawshank. When you want to believe that willpower is capable of overcoming even the toughest obstacles of life, Shawshank will uplift you in ways that you can't find very often. Golden lines to remember: There's something inside that they can't get to, that they can't touch too. It's yours. HOPE. 2.Forest Gump(1994) - Our inner strengths can lead to a beautiful destination. This movie will touch all the chords of emotion, it makes you laugh, cry, rejoice, and so on. Golden lines to remember: "Now, mama said there’s only so much fortune a man needs… and the rest is just for showing off." 3. Life Is beautiful (1997)-An unforgettable piece from Roberto Benigni. This movie will first make you laugh and then cry. I struggled to categorize it as War-comedy or War-tragedy but irrespective of its classification, you will soliloquize "Life is indeed beautiful". 4.Rush(2013) - If you are a fan of F1 racing then this is something you can not stay away from. Even though you are not an F1 fan, you will enjoy watching a movie on sports rivalry which will be staying with you for some time. It's a story of resilience and recovery and please don't miss RUSH. Golden lines to remember: "A wise man can learn more from his enemies than a fool from his friends." 5. Pursuit of Happiness(2006)- A struggle of a father to survive the crude world with his son where everyone is chasing their pursuit . Your mind and soul will become part of the struggle unknowingly while watching the movies. By the way, it's not a work of fiction but a true story of Chris Gardner. Golden lines to remember: "Don't ever let someone tell you, you can't do something. Not even me. You got a dream, you gotta protect it. People can’t do something themselves, they want to tell you you can’t do it. You want something, go get it. Period." The list is not exhaustive and rather it's an attempt to bring limelight to some of the movies which were getting pushed to the bottom of the pile for the heavy deluge of newly released films and massive content on the OTT platform. My trivial attempt to bring them back into the memory and not let them slide into oblivion.
