7 Patriotic Films to Watch on OTT for Republic Day



India will celebrate its Republic Day on January 26. On January 26, 1950, the Indian Constitution came into force, and this day is celebrated as Republic Day throughout the country. The 1949-adopted Constitution took the place of the Government of India Act of 1935 as the country’s primary law. This was when India gained its independence as a republic.

Every year, a sizable procession honours Republic Day in New Delhi and includes tableaus representing each Indian state. After viewing the magnificent parades, you can watch a patriotic movie about the country streaming on one of your favourite OTT platforms.

Here’s a list of seven patriotic movies you can stream on Netflix, Amazon Prime Video and Zee5 for Republic Day:
