04/8Rancho – 3 idiots
While every character in the movie was unique and significant in their own way, it was ‘Rancho’ who inspired millennials the most. A character spreading positivity and emphasising one to follow one’s passion to gain success – Rancho created a separate space inside our hearts. Also to mention, an evergreen phrase ‘All is Well’ allows one to believe in hope and always keep calm no matter how devastating situations can become. “Kamyab hone ke liye nahi, kabil hone ke liye padho…kamyabhi jhak mar ke piche aayegi…” this dialogue indeed struck a chord inside us.

07/8Ram Shankar – Taare Zameen Par
Till date, the movie has a special place in everyone’s heart.
