- Dil Se
We all remember this movie for its soundtrack! Very few movies had topics ahead of their time and Dil Se is one of them. It’s an unhappy tale of tough and painful imagery with love for the country against the corrupt system and terrorism. You’d just love how the director has used love and politics as the backdrop of this film. And oh! It has the evergreen and beloved: KING KHAN.
Based on the Sikh insurgency in the 1980s, Maachis conveys that the youth of the nation are matchsticks that could get ignited due to the corrupt political system. It traces the transformation of a youth from a boy next door to terrorist bent on seeking vengeance against the Government! This shows that the Government should be afraid of the people and not the other way round!
