It is the best time to binge movies since most of us are required to stay home due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It is an era that has changed our lives drastically! Every day our perception is being challenged as we navigate our way to this crisis.
I have collected five movies that have grown my perception after watching! I didn’t expect how these movies have moved me and turned my prism from a different angle.
The Five Movies That Will Change Your Perception
I think this film is relevant today because of the COVID-19. This novel coronavirus forced us drastically to self-isolate. Most of us complain about it because it significantly limits our freedom. But, if you watch Gravity, the self-isolation we are doing right now is nothing compared to what they have done up there – space.
Gravity is a 2013 science-fiction thriller film starred by Sandra Bullock and George Clooney. Two astronauts were stranded in space after the mid-orbit destruction of their Space Shuttle. They have faced several struggles, including painful isolation, loneliness, and frustrations in an attempt to return to Earth.
Matt Kowalski: “So, what do you like about being up here?”
Ryan Stone: “The silence.”
Let us take this opportunity to embrace silence amid COVID-19. Silence will give us the luxury of self-reflection. While we are in isolation, invest your time in reflection and meditation. Nurture your soul. So, once everything is set and ready to come out again, you can be more responsible in taking good care of our environment, your loved ones, your society, and yourselves.

Furie is a 2019 Vietnamese film starred by Veronica Ngo. It is a story of a mother and daughter relationship and how they navigate their way from the unfair system of our society. When traffickers kidnap Hai Phuong’s daughter from their village, she decided to return to Saigon and unforgivingly aimed to take down her daughter’s abductors.
What I like about this film is that the mother faced her fear about her past. Most of us are still prisoners of our past. There are events in your life that keep on coming back. Unintentionally or intentionally, these events are bugging your mind. Once and for all, face them and end your connection to these awful parts of your life. Move forward. Filter the suitable lessons you have got from these fears. And reboot yourself. Unleashed the furie in you, which can help you strive for the better today and the future!
A 2018 Indian drama film starred by Talha Arshad Reshi, Rasika Dugal, and Vikas Kumar. A young Hamid attempts to contact God by calling 786, believing it is God’s number. He wants to talk to God, asking permission so he can speak to his deceased father. Hamid’s life takes a turn when his call gets answered. The movie signifies how we learn to deal with misfortunes and move forward. Hamid is a powerful illustration of human resilience.
Today, because of COVID-19, there are about 400k plus deaths around the world and counting. One of these might be your spouse, your grandparent, your parent, your sibling, your friend, or someone so dear to you. How do you handle it? You are not even allowed to see the remains and perform a memorial.
It is indeed heartbreaking. All you can do is embrace the frustration and painful loneliness. Everything is sudden. The most throbbing part is, there is even unsettled matter between you and your lost loved one.
But remember this. No matter what, your lost loved one will be more than happy to see you standing up! I know your loved one wants to see you endure and move forward, fighting this historic battle. You are not alone.
#4. Taare Zameen Par
It is one of the best films which Aamir Khan stars. Taare Zameen Par (Like Stars, in English) is a 2007 Indian drama film. It is about an 8-year-old dyslexic child, Ishaan (Darsheel Safary).
Ishaan is criticized by his teachers and by his parents for his poor academic performance. His father finally decided to send him away to boarding school to discipline him. Ram, an art teacher, however, realizes Ishaan has dyslexia. Ram helps him reveal his potential.
As humans, we are quick to judge. You see the peak of the iceberg you will judge. The film showed how such an attitude brings devastation to one’s self-esteem. So, instead of quickly judging someone, the film will show you how to understand others, how to embrace differences, and how to help others find their potentials. Anyone can be Ishaan in your life while you are Ram that will help him find his future.
BuyBust is a 2018 Philippine action thriller film starred by Anne Curtis and Brandon Vera. After surviving the massacre of her entire squad in a drug raid conceded by dirty polices, Nina Manigan, an anti-narcotics special operative, is ready to go face-to-face with the drug cartels that hold a bloody grip on Manila. But fuming civilians turn on her new squad when their mission in the city’s most dangerous slum goes south. Caught between a ruthless drug gang and crowds of brutal citizens, their only option is to fight their way out.
I like this film because it showed how someone can make any mistakes in their profession. But to give your loyalty and keeping your integrity at your work is the important thing. Professionally or non-professionally, one must permanently preserve ethics because this is what we are made of.
