Top 10 Useful Bollywood Movies For CSS Aspirants
Continuing with the movie and documentary suggestions for senior central service (CSS) aspirants, I list the top 10 Bollywood movies that can help CSS students understand historical, administrative, social, and political issues.
Section 375 is based on the weakness of Indian law, in particular the new rape laws enacted after the famous Delhi rape case in 2012. The film shows how a woman exploits the law to get revenge on her boss. This best Bollywood courtroom drama film makes a compelling case for both the defense and the prosecution. The procedures and administration of the law are very well presented in this film.
SSC aspirants should watch it to find out how a law is operated, administered and how court decisions are rendered. It will also help develop analytical and argumentative skills among contest applicants.
My favorite dialogue in this movie is delivered by Akshay Khanna, he tells his lawyer counterpart, “We are not in the business of justice, we are in the business of law.” Law students should also watch the Section 375 film.

Delhi Crime is a Netflix original series based on the Delhi rape case in 2012. It shows how the police work. CSS aspirants who wish to join Pakistan Police Service (PSP) should look at this. This is a wonderful re-enactment of the medical student rape case – from the start of the case to the investigations, the police media trial, the confessions of the suspects, the political scoring and the proceedings. judicial.
Although directed by the Hollywood director, the film is based on the street children of India. What the CSS aspirant can achieve is how lifelong learning from a street kid helps him win in the ‘Who Wants to Be a Millionaire’ game show. The CSS exam also tests a candidate’s lifelong learning. Students should learn to “connect the dots” as shown in the film – a concept also illustrated by Steve Jobs’ speech at Stanford.
The film won an Oscar in the Best Picture and Best Music category, thanks to my favorite musical director AR Rehman.
If you want to watch more movies like Slum Dog Millionaire, start with “Salaam Bombay” – the first Indian cinema art film.

Based on the life of India’s greatest Machiavellian politician Vallabhai Patel, Sardar is another film about pre-partition politics involving Muslims, Hindus, and Britons. There are factual errors; nevertheless, he provides a great deal of business knowledge concerning the political history of united India.
The film Shahid is based on the life of a Muslim boy who is preparing for a law exam and only becomes a lawyer to defend the rights of Muslims. This is based on the true story of Shahid Kazmi who was martyred by allegedly Hindu extremists. Aspirants to CSS can take inspiration from each scene in this film and can also learn about the state of Muslims in India.
Anwar is a beautiful film with multiple metaphorical meanings. This is important for CSS aspirants as it helps them create analogies – a smart tool for boosting creativity.
The film revolves around a middle-class Muslim who falls in love with a girl. He is unable to decide between unconditional and conditional love. The one-sided love story remains incomplete, which is why the film can be interpreted in several ways. Interpreting a story in multiple ways is what CSS aspirants should always focus on.
The film also shows how stereotypical Indian society is against Muslims, but this part of the film can be skipped as the main takeaways are taken from the love story. Anwar is available on Shemaroo YouTube channel.
