What Are Some Good Inspirational Indian Movies

10 inspiring travel films

The little escapes from everyday life can take many forms, and new travel destinations, cultures and adventures can be discovered and experienced in different ways. How about some virtual sightseeing in New York or London, or a seat in the first (sofa) row of a world-class performance? But today we take you on a cinematic journey; these films transport you to another world. Just make some popcorn and the journey can begin.

Darjeeling Limited

A form of self-discovery is presented to us in Eat, pray, love, but transformative travel can be done differently. For example, you could hop on a moving train with three intrepid brothers.

As you know it from Wes Anderson isDarjeeling Limited a curious, eclectic and sometimes crazy film. He takes us on a train journey through India's multifaceted landscapes, through mountains, red sand deserts and past bustling markets. We gain insights into religious customs, spiritual rituals and colorful temples, which leave a lasting impression on the main characters, and perhaps also on us.

Midnight in Paris

If you've ever dreamed of suddenly finding yourself in the city of love, the film comesMidnight in Paris just right. Woody Allen's classic perfectly captures the bustling streets, charming cafes and unmistakable cityscape of Paris.

Gil, one of the main characters, is in Paris with his fiancée's family for a few days. One evening he decides to take another walk. When the clock strikes midnight, something suddenly changes. He made a leap in time into the twenties and met Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald, Salvador Dalí and Ernest Hemingway there.

In addition to the charming story, we can also admire the city's landmarks such as the Eiffel Tower, the Champs-Élysées and the Arc de Triomphe as well as the dazzling nightlife of the roaring twenties.

Into the wild

If you long for some nature (and maybe some adventure), isInto the wild the perfect movie for you. When you see the breathtaking landscapes, you can leave everyday life behind you completely. The autobiographical adaptation of the novel is based on the life of Christopher McCandless, who breaks out of civilization under the pseudonym Alexander Supertramp and defies social norms. His journey into the unknown by car, hitchhiker and kayak takes him from Virginia via South Dakota and Northern California to Alaska.

Mamma Mia!

Mamma Mia! takes you to the Greek islands, where you can throw all your worries overboard for at least 1 hour and 49 minutes.

The heartwarming romantic comedy is about Sophie, a young woman who has always dreamed that her father would lead her to the altar on her wedding day. The problem? She doesn't know who her father is. After coming across her mother's old diary, she decides to invite three men named in it, potential candidates, to her wedding.

The action takes place on the fictional island of Kalokairi, but the film was shot on the real and fantastically beautiful Greek islands of Skiathos and Skopelos. The mixture of tears of joy, tears of sadness, loads of ABBA songs, turquoise blue water, rocky bays and charming white houses is really hard to resist.

Crazy Rich

Also Crazy Rich is a great travel film based on a novel. The film gives an insight into the life of an extremely wealthy Singaporean family. But when Rachel Chu flies to Singapore to meet her new friend's family, she has no idea what to expect.

It is important to meet the family's expectations, but also designer fashion and sights such as the infinity pool in the Hotel Marina Bay Sands, the iconic Merlion figure, the city's great street food scene and the spectacular Gardens by the Bay Not too short. Fortunately, this cinematic trip to Singapore is offered on several streaming portals.

Young Che's journey

If you have succumbed to the charm of Latin America but don't (yet) want to get on the plane yourself, this film is perfect for you. Young Che's journey is based on the memoirs of Ernesto "Che" Guevara and shows the people, places and experiences that shaped the future revolutionary, but also the undeniable beauty of Latin America.

The film may be a little more serious than some of the other films on our list, but it's still decidedly TV-worthy. Go with Che and his friend Alberto Granado on a motorcycle tour through Argentina, Chile and Peru, among others, and marvel at fascinating places such as the Andes, Machu Picchu and the Amazon.


Perhaps it is a sense of fear, admiration, or love for the Australian outback that the viewers experience after watching the film traces remains. Maybe it's a bit of everything. The inspiring story is about Robyn Davidson, who is only accompanied by a few camels and a dog on a 2,700 kilometer hike from Alice Springs to the Australian west coast. The camera follows her step by step as she traverses areas in the merciless heat that not many people venture into. The film not only teaches viewers a lot about the outback itself, but also about the life of the native Australians who live here.

Once Upon a Time ... in Hollywood

Are you dreaming of a trip to another time? The film Once Upon a Time ... in Hollywood takes you straight back to a time of bell-bottoms, tie-dye patterns and go-go boots.

The story is about Rick Dalton and Cliff Booth, an actor-stuntman duo in Hollywood in the late sixties. Of course, how could it be otherwise with Quentin Tarantino, there are slight modifications of historical events and the usual level of violence. If you are unfamiliar with the Manson Family murders, just to be sure, you should do some research before watching the movie.

The film may demand a lot from the viewer, but at the same time gives a realistic impression of Los Angeles and Hollywood, especially in 1969. The plot takes you to classic film sets, to Hollywood Boulevard, to the pretty Westwood Village and other exciting places.

The amazing life of Walter Mitty

The more difficult it is to travel, be it due to restrictions or for other reasons, the more people become more adventurous. If you recognize yourself in it, there's a good chance you can identify with Walter Mitty. His situation may be a little different - he's been stuck in a monotonous job for years - but his wanderlust gets bigger every day, until at some point he can no longer ignore it.

When Mitty is tasked with locating a negative for the cover photo of the magazine he works for, he has to leave his secure desk and fly from New York to Greenland.The amazing life of Walter Mittyis the story of a true and fictional journey to icy waterfalls, waters teeming with sharks and the Himalayas.

The Farewell

Most of the films on our list are centered around the location,The Farewell but gives us an insight into the life of a Sino-American family. The story accompanies Billi (played by Awkwafina, who received a Golden Globe for her portrayal) and her family on their trip from the USA to China. The trip takes place under the pretext of a wedding celebration, but in fact the family comes together to say goodbye to the grandmother. Complicated relationships, cultural norms and expectations run like a red thread through this extremely warm and moving film, which shows parallels to the director's life.
