Motivational and Inspirational Movies (24)

Mardaani (2014)

Every eight minutes a child goes missing in India. (National Crimes Record Bureau)

India is the world “hub” of child trafficking (in Persons Report U. S. Govt) and, nearly 40,000 children are abducted every year, of which 11,000 remain untraced. (National Human Rights Commission of India)

1.2 million children are trafficked worldwide for sexual exploitation (Officer of the High Commissioner for Human Rights, UN)


The movie depicts the psychology of men who abuse women and the motivation behind that brutality. All the above are part of the information movie gives us at the end of it.

It is a story of a police inspector who seeks to confront the brain behind the child trafficking mafia. That character might be an inspiration for women in terms of self-confidence and standing up for themselves.

At some point, the main character gives an interview in the film. She talks about the way Indian woman is treated and how there is a sort of subtle sexism associated with everything she does.

Also, the main character might be an inspiration for men who never should underestimate women. Women are the bearers of the creation and know to find their power to fight for children.

To trap a rat, you have to act like one. To catch a dog, you have to think like one. To hunt a tiger, you have to become one.

It is a movie where you find violence, blood and fights. Unfortunately, we do not like to talk about it, but it is part of the world we created and accepted. Fortunately, it is also our responsibility to make changes, and leave a better world behind us.

This movie tries to awaken our consciousness about the above issues. It attempts to make a change and empower the fight against human trafficking. It is also a beautiful message for women to show their courage.

Every woman, every girl has to discover the fighter (mardaani) hidden inside her.
