The touching story of the Indian Women's hockey team winning the World Cup against all odds would melt even the coldest heart. 

2. Lagaan (2001)

A fictional story set during the period of British rule in India, this Aamir Khan starrer is about how the people of a small village in India beat some arrogant Englishmen at  their own game; Cricket. Made on a unprecedented budget of 250 Million Rupees, Lagaan was only the third Indian movie to get nominated for an Academy Award for the Best Foreign Language Film.

3. Bhaag Milkha Bhaag (2013)

Bhaag Milkha Bhaag is the inspiring true story of India's Flying Sikh, Milkha Singh, who came within a whisker of winning an Olympic medal. Farhan Akhtar does full justice in the lead role as the legendary athlete.

Another true story, this time about a solider in the Indian army who won a gold medal at the National Games but was forced by circumstances to turn into a dacoit.
