16 Inspirational Sports Movies That Will Push You to Do Your Best

Has the ongoing pandemic got you feeling sluggish? Cosmo presents an exhaustive list of the best Hindi and English-language films that will offer a healthy dose of motivation. 

Nope, you don't necessarily need to be a sports enthusiast or a fitness freak to enjoy a sports film. While such movies are often centred around a particular sport and its various facets—such as soccer, golf, wrestling, badminton, and cricket—their chief purpose is to set aflame a spark of motivation and conviction within the viewer. And if we're totally honest, it usually does the work! 

Do you remember watching Mary Kom and M.S Dhoni: The Untold Story and feeling a deep sense of nationalism? Did you find yourself rooting for the underdogs in Chak DeIndia? Well, sports movies are constructed to evoke a sense of reason and pride, after all. Here's a list of 16 inspiring and stimulating sports movies that can be the perfect pick-me-up on a dull day.
