6 Life lessons to be learnt from Bajrangi Bhaijaan
Being released worldwide on the Eid 2015, Bajrangi Bhaijaan has definitely won our hearts. Featuring the “Bhai” of the Bollywood Salman Khan along with Harshaali Malhotra, Kareena Kapoor and last but never the least, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Bajrangi Bhaijaan has approximately collected a whopping amount of 184 crores of the Indian rupees only in the first week. However apart from the Khan’s dynamic performance with the added sweet gist of the cute Harshaali Malhotra, the movie also entails certain life-lessons which are seriously heart-touching. For all the lovers of this epic movie here is a list of some of the life-lessons taught by Bajrangi Bhaijaan.
1. That pure love knows no borders
The best example for this statement has to be Bajrangi Bhaijaan. The devout Hanuman Bhakt Salman Khan helps the speech-impaired yet adorably cute girl Harshaali Malhotra with the best of his efforts. While the latter, Munni, goes on wandering being alone, hungry and most importantly being silent, Bajrangi tries to his best only to make sure that the six-year old girl is able to reach back safely to her motherland Pakistan. This entire plot shows that when it is about pure love, there exists neither any territorial border nor any religion.
2. That a common man can be powerful
The importance of “aam janta” or common mass is yet another issue highlighted in the movie. Bajrangi Bhaijaan clearly portrays the power and the determination a common Indian man can have. Compelling the audience to think more about the nation, Bajrangi Bhaijaan clearly shows how any situation in India can be changed only if a common man decides to do with total determination. The movie further illustrates to fight for what is actually right. And most importantly it shows the essential power of being common along with being together.
3. Power and significance of digital media
Apart from the common morals, Bajrangi Bhaijan also taught us how we can be easily influenced by digital media and how it can actually change anyone’s life. It shows the power of independent journalism along with exposing the reality of the news channels that are always up to making profits and increasing the TRPs. The virality of one single video actually compelled the big firms to pay attention to the same along with helping both the countries to bring about some real and productive change.
4. That truth always wins out
Salman Khan in the movie is heard saying, “Hum Bajrangbali ke bhakt hain, mar jaayenge par jhoot nahi bolenge…”, thus highlighting the importance of truth, which not just Hanuman bhakt should have but everyone should comprise of. Crossing the borders of India, or in fact of any other country is actually not cuppatea. Yet, Salman Khan aka Bajrangi in the movie does only on the basis of honesty and complete truth. The movie highlights a strong message that to stick to the truth, no matter what a situation is. In fact it’s not just the Bajrangi, even the little girl is also taught to speak nothing but the truth. The way Salman’s character Bajrangi has showed this message has actually impressed and won the hearts of many.
5. Caste is just a word
As we all know Bajrangi in Bajrangi Bhaijaan is a devout follower of Hanuman yet that didn’t stop him to order meat for the little girl. Neither it stopped him to enter the mosque. Along with Salman Khan, Munni aka Harshaali is also seen praying in a temple. Soon Bajrangi also realizes that the mosque’s Maulvi is also quite a kind-hearted fellow. As he starts understanding the fallacies and the hollowness of certain constructed religious and political norms thus set up, the movie and of course Salman Khan makes the audience fall more for the both.
6. Silence is actually louder than words
The speech-impaired Munni, has proved perfectly that true love actually doesn’t need words. The emotional bond between Munni and Bajrangi shows that true relationships need real emotions instead of few words. Although Munni was unable to speak yet her expressions and her true feelings was enough to convey that to be guileless and smart, you don’t need words. The ability of understanding the emotions further emphasized this fact.
Definitely with so many moral life-lessons entailing the movie, Bajrangi Bhaijaan is worthy watching!
