Children’s Day Special: 7 Movies Your Kids Must Watch Even Though They Are Not ‘U’ Rated

It’s Children’s Day, so naturally, theatres are having screenings of ‘kid-friendly movies’ today. But what exactly are kid-friendly movies? Do these films just have to be entertaining or should they aim to teach kids something more than telling the truth and obeying their parents?

So move over the same-old animated comedies that your kids watch. It’s time to expose them to more coming-of-age films, which actually teach them valuable lessons. Here are seven of them that you can watch with your kids:

#1. Wake Up Sid

Even a rich slacker kid can get off his high horse and make something meaningful of his life. The film also encourages kids to create their own paths to success rather than follow their parents’ footsteps.


#2. Zindagi Na Milegi Dobaara

Not only will this film inspire your kids to live life to the fullest and value their relationships, it will also give them the motivation to face their fears and find true happiness at every stage.


#3. Udaan

Kids will connect with this story about a boy held back from following his dreams due to his strict father. Watching such movies with your kids opens room for a healthy conversation about their future.


#4. Queen

Everyone should watch this film as young girls need to realize that nothing can hold them back once they put their mind to it and boys will learn that women are not dependent on them for everything.


#5. 3 Idiots

Kids need to understand the difference between studying and learning, and this movie gives a great insight into both. The film will also help them realize their dreams and fulfill them.


#6. Gippi

The movie deals with body shaming and bullying. Kids do need to be told about body positivity and an entertaining film such as this one works better than talks and lectures on the same.


#7. Rocket Singh: Salesman of the Year

Most kids these days wish to start a business of their own rather than be stuck doing corporate jobs. This film is great for those entrepreneurs who will learn the risks of managing a business.
