10. The Beautiful Mind:-
This movie has now become one of my personal favourites. Initially, I presumed the movie would be over-exaggerated throughout the whole film as the first time jump seemed unexpected and exaggerated itself. I was not prepared for how hard this movie hit my core. As someone who has been diagnosed with mental illness, the depiction of it was done quite well. Throughout the whole movie was it not once romanticized, thank God for that. The acting proceeds excellence as well. I felt the emotions of each character in such a personal way. Essentially, this movie and its concepts have left me with a weight in my heart and tears in my eyes. I’m extremely glad I took the time to watch it and if you’re reading this, please do; you will not regret it whatsoever.

The story of the life and academic career of the pioneer Indian mathematician, Srinivasa Ramanujan, and his friendship with his mentor, Professor G.H. Hardy. A really motivating movie for all IITJEE aspirants.

14. The Imitation Game:-
Based on the life of the brilliant British Mathematician, Alan Turing, the movie features his efforts to break the Nazi Enigma Code through a machine which eventually paved the way for modern-day computers.
It requires something unimaginable to work out the 159 million possible ways to break the Enigma Code and save lives, which would otherwise become casualty figures in a great war – and the movie has beautifully captured this. The movie gives you an idea of how AI and Computers can be helpful for mankind. A must recommended movie on my behalf.
