Diwali Spl: 7 Movies That Remind Us Good Always Triumphs Over Evil
This Diwali, these 7 ZEE5 originals will remind you what we have learned over the years, that is the good always wins over the evil and by the end, only the good intentions and pure hearts taste the victory.
Though the world is fighting with the pandemic, the festivals and celebrations manage to keep us positive. One of the prominent festivals of India is also around the corner. While adapting to the new normal, many of us may miss the way we used to celebrate Diwali every year; with loads of sweets and firecrackers. But, as the festival itself has taught us that it’s always good who wins over anything, here are 7 ZEE5 original shows that will remind you that this darkness too shall pass soon.
Starring the late actor Rishi Kapoor along with the powerhouse of talent Taapsee Pannu, Mulk is a hard-hitting story, which exactly defines our hook. Inspired by true events, the film throws light on the story of a Muslim family trying to reclaim its lost honour after a family member gets involved in terrorism. The courtroom drama has a few sequences and arguments that will surely get stuck in your head.
Although the latest offering of ZEE5, Khaali Peeli, seems to be a mass-masala entertainer, the film also reminds us that in the end the good rules over evil. The antagonist Yusuf Khan separated the childhood sweethearts Pooja and Blackie for his own mean deeds. The couple stayed away from each other for years, but, the wait ended and they reunited. Yusuf’s evil deeds pushed Pooja and Blackie into a life that they never imagined of, but they found their way by the end of the film.
In a country like ours, where the LGBTQ+ community is still fighting for equal rights in society, 377 AbNormal gives a peek into their life, which is full of struggles. Inspired by true events, this emotional drama narrates the journey of five petitioners who challenged Section 377. The film is also a brief look into the landmark judgment that marked the beginning of a new era of equality.
Ka Pae Ranasingam
Another film based on true events that you can watch in ZEE5 is Ka Pae Ranasingam. The Tamil-language film, starring Vijay Sethupathi and Aishwarya Rajesh, is a gripping political drama. the film introduced us to Ariyanachi (Aishwarya Rajesh) from a village in Ramanathapuram district. She is married to Ranasingam (Vijay Sethupathi), who works on an off-shore oil plant in Dubai. One day, she gets the news that he is killed, and she is told a false reason for his death.
Witness this gripping real-life story, in which a father goes beyond the limits for the education of his intelligent kid. It is the story of a poor man’s unbridled desire to provide his son with education and opportunities on a par with the children of elite families he is acquainted with. It is based on a real story the filmmaker, Prakash Jha, learned of through an influential, former top cop in his home state, Bihar.
Another gripping story of a father-child duo available in ZEE5 is Mee Raqsam. It’s about the unlikely but very credible courage and heroism of a traditional Muslim father who chooses his daughter’s desire over obedience to his religious elders and challenges patriarchal society for the same. Salim goes through isolation and struggles to earn a living, but he never gives up to fuel up his daughter’s desire.
Good not only wins over evil but sometimes changes its heart as well. And, Ranveer Singh starrer Simmba is the best example of it. In the film, Singh’s character Bhalerao was a corrupt and mean police officer. But, a heartwrenching incident changes his way of looking at his life and later, he decides to serve the public instead of the goons.
