When it comes to learning, books aren’t the only source for information. While you can be all genius and know it all with your bookish knowledge, to be smart, you will have to hop out of the library.
While an image is worth a thousand words, I wonder how many words are depicted through a movie with images changing at 1/26th of a second. Movies teach us some of the best lessons in life which are nowhere to be found in text books.
They inspire you to strive harder and work for something better. Here are six of the best inspirational movies that teach you the importance of hard work, smart work, commitment and determination to succeed in life.
The movie ‘3 Idiots’ is on top of our list. Directed by Rajkumar Hirani, the movie is based on Chetan Bhagat’s novel “Five Point Someone”. The movie revolves around three engineering students, their everlasting friendship and a quest to break through a complicated education system.
From parental pressure and unending exam stress to times of self-doubt, the movie picks up almost all aspect of a student’s life making it highly relatable for all. It teaches something very powerful: One should chase knowledge and success will follow.
MS Dhoni: An Untold Story
MS Dhoni is one hell of an inspirational movie to watch. The movie is a biography of the Indian cricketer: MS Dhoni. The movie shows a simple Ranchi boy, fighting against all odds to not only secure his place in the Indian National Cricket Team, but also head the same in the ICC Cricket World Cup Final 2011. Nevertheless, they win the match.
The movie is going to make you cry, laugh and feel inspired at the same time. It shows you what dreams are made of and why one should never give up on them.
The Social Network
The Social Network is based on the life of the founder of Facebook. Mark Zuckerberg, a student from Harvard goes from being nobody to a multi- millionare when he creates a social networking site with millions of worldwide users.
The movie explains that every student can make it big only if he/ she fights till the very end. Social Network will definitely make you wish to be as amazingly genius and awesome as Zuckerberg himself.
I am Kalam
This movie is unique and inspiring at the same time. There is a chotu in all of us who aspires to be like someone in the future. Similary, in the movie, a little boy fondly called “chotu” wants to be grow up to be like “DR. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam”.
The movie throws light on the plight of unprivileged children and beautifully depicts the friendship between the rich and poor. The movie celebrates the undying human spirit and inspires you to fight a little harder for what you aspire.

The movie can excellently teach you, how hard work, a strong will power, perseverance and determination can do wonders for someone. The best lesson to learn from the movie is that no matter how hard things get, one must never- ever give up.
The Internship is an American comedy, revolving around two middle aged salesman who land themselves with an internship at Google. The two have lost their long term jobs due to the onset of digital age. However, instead of being disheartened, they decide to prove themselves as interns with a different approach towards life.
