As we have extended Weekend sharing Three Best Stock Market Movies
‘Gafla’ begins as a story about an ordinary young man, Subodh, in ordinary circumstances. Subodh starts out as like any middle-class guy, with limited opportunities to survive and get ahead. ‘gafla’ follows Subodh’s journey into the stock markets and beyond through the eyes of different people in his personal and professional life.
2. The Pursuit of Happyness (2006)
Starring Will Smith and his real-life son, Jaden Smith. This movie is based on the story of Chris Gardner and the trials and tribulations that he endured on his way towards becoming a multi-millionaire. “The Pursuit of Happyness” focuses on the period of Gardner’s life when he was attempting to become a top trainee in Dean Witter Reynolds’ stock brokerage training program. Gardner and his son were homeless at the time, as the money that Gardner received through the stock brokerage training program wasn’t enough for them to live on. Gardner and his son moved from homeless shelter to homeless shelter, all while Gardner was attempting to gain employment at Dean Witter Reynolds. A truly inspiring story.
3. Wall Street (1987)
I have a hard time thinking that there will ever be a better stock market movie made. This is the gold standard of stock market movies. Just ignore the vastly inferior follow-up to this movie, “Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps” and stick with the original. “Wall Street” stars Michael Douglas and a pre-“winning” Charlie Sheen. Michael Douglas’ portrayal of “Gordon Gekko” was so good that he ended up winning the Academy Award for best Actor in 1987. “Wall Street” spawned many memorable quotables, including the most famous line of all – “Greed is good”.
