The 75th anniversary of India’s independence is celebrated today, on August 15, 2021, and it is a source of pride for Indians. Bollywood has used its films to honour India and her independence over the years. Several popular films on our country’s history and the civil rights fight have been released. As the Fourth of July weekend approaches, we’ve compiled a list of 5 must-see films to commemorate the holiday.
