Struggling to Watch a Good Biopic? Hereís a List to Reckon

Posted by Sandeep Kumar on September 4th, 2019

Bollywood industry is the home to some of the most nonsensical movies ever made; we have a traditional hero beating 10 goons all together by himself, taking the bullet yet not dying, rescuing the heroine from the claws of the villain and then breaking into a song and dance all of sudden.

Well, that’s how Bollywood movies turn out to be, hardly anything realistic ever. All major satellite TV channels in India air such movies and inarguably, there is a separate fan base for these. But, for the lovers of realistic cinema, there are a few biopics in Bollywood movies based on facts, real life story, and achievements of the distinguished notaries around the world.

Here are our recommendations on some of the best biopics to watch on satellite TV channels

M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story (2016)

Based on the life of our very own ‘Captain Cool’ aka Mahendra Singh Dhoni, the titular role in the movie was portrayed flawlessly by Sushant Singh Rajput on screen. This Bollywood biopic is a beautiful ode to Dhoni’s childhood, his passion for the sport, his cricketing and struggle days and all that went behind the ever-calming smile of the captain.

The movie had Anupam Kher play the role of his father while Bhumika Chawla played his sister’s character. The movie also had Kiara Advani and Disha Patani playing the role of Dhoni’s love interests. Watch this movie playing on your DTH satellite TV and know about the life of Mahendra Singh Dhoni in its truest sense. 

Dangal (2016)

One of the most popular sports biopics ever made in Bollywood, Dangal starring Aamir Khan, Fatima Sana Sheikh and Zaira Wasim played the roles of Mahavir Phogat, Geeta Phogat, and Babita Phogat. Directed by Nitesh Tiwari, the movie is a touching tale of Mahavir’s hard work to train his daughters, Geeta and Babita’s long hours of training and their struggle to get Indian a gold medal at the Olympics in wrestling. Most satellite TV channels in India have already aired this movie; make sure you catch it next time. 

Shahid (2013)

Airing on satellite TV in India, Shahid is a 2013 biographical film based on the real-life story of Shahid Azmi, a human rights activist and lawyer who was eventually killed by unknown assailants in his office in Mumbai. This Hansal Mehta directorial venture had Rajkumar Rao in the tile role and pulled off the character flawlessly. The movie beautifully took us through the journey of Shahid Azmi and how his passion for helping people in distress actually costed him with his life. 

Sanju (2018)

Sanju, the most popular biopics ever made on the life of any Bollywood actor, had Ranbir Kapoor essay the role of Sanjay Dutt, quite flawlessly, physically and otherwise. Looking as real as Dutt himself, Ranbir projected the life and struggles of Dutt in the most moving manner to wash his image of a terrorist accused of being involved in the Mumbai blasts. Catch Sanju airing on most DTH satellite Tv channels in India for the love of cinema.
