Here are 10 remarkable films in this category.

3 idiots / 2009

Director: Rajkumar Hirani

The film finally showed that no one can be forced to succeed without a natural aptitude. He asks what would have happened if Lata Mangeshkar had been forced to be a cricketer and shows the genius of a young man (Aamir Khan) who is resourceful and imaginative but is ridiculed by his dean because he does not believe in conventional cramming to shine. The delicious knot of this blockbuster comedy series is how he triumphs.

Avtar / 1983

Director: Mohan Kumar

An enterprising young man from the start, Avtaar Kishen (Rajesh Khanna) overcomes trials to succeed. Later, after leaving home thanks to ungrateful children with his loving wife, he fights again and creates an industrial empire when he is already old, also creating a home for neglected old parents.

Baaja Baaraat Group / 2010

Director: Maneesh Sharma

Two young people, one of whom (Anushka Sharma) wants to be a wedding planner, join hands for the business.

English Vinglish / 2012

Director: Gauri Shinde

This film tells the story of the enterprising but badly treated housewife (Sridevi), who makes and sells snacks. But her husband (Adil Hussein) laughs at her only because she doesn’t know English. The film shows how she improves both her profession and this shortfall from her husband’s point of view, and makes him realize her mistake. The film was produced by R. Balki, Shinde’s husband.

Guru / 2007

Director: Mani Rathnam

An average success, this film was the dramatized biopic of India‘s biggest rags (well, not exactly) story – of tycoon Dhirubhai Ambani. Abhishek Bachchan starred in this quite gripping story that explored the milestones of his meteoric rise.

Manthan / 1976

Director: Shyam Benegal

The film tells the true saga of group entrepreneurs with the foresight to act in a way that was good for the company and not just for themselves. Under the leadership of leaders such as a local social worker who championed the farmers’ cause, they formed the Kaira District Milk Producers Cooperative Union in a district of Gujarat. All of this eventually led to the formation of Amul, a dairy cooperative in Anand, Gujarat in 1946, which is now jointly owned by over 2.6 million milk producers, and led to the establishment of the Gujarat Co- operative Milk Marketing Federation Ltd. in 1973. Reportedly, 500,000 members jointly funded the film by donating Rs. 2 each. New-wave film for the time, it starred Girish Karnad.

Pad-Man / 2018

Director: R. Balki

Another undertaking by R. Balki, this film disguised and dramatized the story of social activist Arunachalam Muruganantham, a social entrepreneur from Tamil Nadu, although he carried the narrative to a northern state. Akshay Kumar played the part in his home production and the story tells how a young man decides to make cheap sanitary napkins for lower class women who cannot afford to buy branded napkins and use thus dirty clothes, resulting in poor health. The film did a decent business.

Rocket Singh – Seller of the year / 2010

Director: Shimit Amin

While the film did not perform well and was not so captivating, its theme stood out: it showed that dedication, honesty, customer-firstness, and innovation with incentives were the key to success. . The protagonist was a young man (Ranbir Kapoor) who experiments with business models and modules, as well as the ups and downs he faces.

Sui Dhaaga — Made in India / 2018

Director: Sharat Katariya

The third Yash Raj Films film in this list after “Band Baaja Baaraat” and “Rocket Singh …”, this film chronicles the struggles of a young couple in a village to achieve something for themselves and for the country . Nature and man seem to conspire to put a key in their works. Varun Dhawan and Anushka Sharma played the two brilliant but harangued souls. However, the film did not go well.

The Big Bull / 2021

Director: Kookie Gulati

The dramatized biopic Harshad Mehta was released on OTT and made a sad face after the brilliant “Scam 1992” which was also based on the same story and played out as a gripping and authentic web series in every detail. Abhishek Bachchan, however, did a great job after “Guru” again playing yet another Gujarati entrepreneur, who this time succumbs to excessive ambition and descends on the path of disaster.
