Well, thanks to the recent glut of sports biopics, lots of options for celebrating this one!!!!
Starting with an oldie but a goodie, “Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikander”!
Moving along, and heading down south since this is after all a “National” day of sport. “Antartica” from Thuppakki
There’s a little bit of sport in this song, although more in the movie as a whole. It’s easy to forget, but Madhavan’s character somehow makes the national cricket team? “Rojakale” from Priyamani Thozhi.
A very Malayalam take on sports, 1983. “Ollakkam Chodumaayi”
Heading back north, I will never not use an excuse to play this song. “Dhaakad” from Dangal.
A new song, which came from a movie that didn’t get much notice. But I liked it! “Soorma Anthem” from Soorma
And finally, to end with the greatest sports speech in Indian film (I think), “Sattar Minute” from Chak De India.
