5 Bollywood Movies That Are Bold Enough To Deal With Lesser Known Conditions

Bollywood movies are constantly evolving at a fast speed. Movies these days have been more inclined towards the social issues which have been attracting more audiences to the theatre. The issues have been mental and physical. The main motto of making a movie on such an issue is to make the audiences aware and communicate that it is absolutely alright to be different – to live with an issue which others don’t have.

These are some movies which deal with most of the real-life conditions:

1) Barfi:

One of the best movies by Anurag Basu Barfi was a masterpiece. Ranbir and Priyanka’s powerful acting was the cherry on the cake. Priyanka Chopra plays the role of an autistic person and Kapoor plays the role of ‘Barfi’ who cannot speak and hear. ‘Autism’ was dealt sensitively in the movie.

2) Paa:

This was the very first time when Abhishek Bachchan plays the role of a father and Amitabh Bachchan his son. The movie revolved around a father and son relationship. Amitabh suffers from a very rare disease called ‘Progeria’ which accelerates ageing.

3) Shubh Mangal Saavdhan:

Recently released, starring Ayushman Khurrana and Bhumi Pednekar, the movie revolves around a problem called ‘Erectile Dysfunction’ which is faced by Khurrana at the time of his marriage with Bhumi. The movie shows how the problem is handled in our Indian society what reactions it has on our surroundings etc.

4) Hichki:

Hichki which released last week is constantly winning hearts all over. Rani Mukherjee is back with a bang after a long time. She plays the role of a woman suffering from ‘Tourette’s Syndrome’. In the movie, her character aspires to become a teacher but with this syndrome, she has a lot of difficulties. The film revolves around the challenges and hurdles she faces in life and how she overcomes it.


5) Taare Zameen Par:

The movie won millions of hearts due to the common issue which was portrayed with so much love and efforts. Aamir Khan plays the role of a painting teacher and Darsheel Safary plays the role of a ‘Dyslexic’ child. How Khan helps Safary in overcoming this issue and bringing out the fact that each and every child has his/her problems, every child is special – is what the movie is all about.

Such movies make Bollywood worth our time.
