It’s not rare, but also not very common for dogs to take centre-stage in a film. However, when they do, they make sure that all eyes are only on them. The compassion and love they bring on the big screen are unparalleled and tugs at our heartstrings like nothing else. Over a period of time, there has been a lot of titles that portray dogs are the real Heros and best friend in a human’s life.
Here are the 6 must-watch shows that portray Dogs are the real hero:
While Amazon Prime Video’s Paatal Lok has managed to make a statement by drawing uncanny similarities to our reality, it has also managed to successfully spread awareness about animal conservation and the welfare of strays. In a society where ‘pure-bred pedigrees’ are given more importance, representation of Indi dogs in the series was a revolution in itself. It beautifully captures the true bond of an animal lover. The scene where Hathi Ram narrates the mythological incident of Yudhisthira showing his loyalties to his dog (who never left his side) on the steps of heaven was heartwarming. Watch Paatal Lok on Amazon Prime Video.
Why was Dog named Savitri in ‘Patal Lok’? People told the theory …
Entertainment is an interesting Bollywood film highlighting the fact that an increasing number of pet owners are providing provisions for their pets in their wills. The beautiful depiction of Entertainment (a dog) as man’s best friend and a ‘lifeline’ is amazingly portrayed. What makes ENTERTAINMENT attention-grabbing — besides its distinctive storyline — is the fact that it is helmed by Sajid-Farhad, who have penned several laughathons in the past. Naturally, one expects their directorial debut to be a rib-tickling entertainer.
