2. Yeh Ballet

Yeh Ballet - Live More Zone

What’s It About?
There is something very endearing about an underdog story – especially if it a real-life story. Amidst the hustle and bustle of Mumbai, the city of dreams, two diametrically opposite boys discover themselves and their calling in ballet; an alien dance form that eventually ends up changing their lives forever. Asif is a talented breakdancer from the slums of Mumbai who prefers to dance to his own tunes. He is not impressed or interested in taking a formal dance class and refuses to work on improving his skills. Meanwhile, Nishu is an extremely dedicated and hardworking contemporary dancer who does not have the natural flair for ballet like Asif does. However, he is driven and focused and spends every spare moment working on his dance skills. Asif and Nishu’s paths entwine when famous Israeli-American ballet teacher Saul Aaron relocates from the States to India to teach ballet in Mumbai and takes the boys under his wings.

Why Do We Recommend It
Yeh Ballet is not a run of the mill inspirational flick full of emotions and drama. It is a real life story where talent has no limit and dreams do come true, but one needs to be disciplined and work hard to achieve them. The movie is raw and real and inspires us to do better.

4. Soni

Soni - Live More Zone

What’s It About?
Soni is a tale of two women, Kalpana – A level-headed IPS officer who is a stickler for procedure and Soni – the quintessential ‘Angry Young Woman’ who has a lot going on in her personal and professional life. The women come from very different worlds but the challenges that Kalpana and Soni face, both at work and at home, are very similar. Whether on the job or at home, they are constantly reminded to live up to societal expectations of womanhood. Soni realistically shows the world is hostile towards women through the lives of two female cops, who are responsible for the safety of other women and yet have to constantly battle misogyny and sexism. The film does an outstanding job of accurately portraying the struggles of women. It shows you exactly what life is for working women who choose to live their life on their own terms.

Why Do We Recommend It
Soni is a riveting drama that draws your attention from the first scene. The performances by Geetika Vidya Ohlyan and Saloni Batra are impeccable. Even though the film about cops, it does not involve any crime solving. Soni is a movie about women’s lived experience, gender roles and societal expectations through the lives of two policewomen in New Delhi.
