Popular Bollywood Movies On Drug Abuse

Did you see Udta Punjab last week? Did you fly high like Tommy Singh in the movie? Today happens to be important with regards to this film. That is because today is the United Nations’ International Day against Drug Abuse. It does not celebrate the use of drugs, but raises awareness about the major problem it represents in society. Bollywood too has tried to do the same through its movies, by describing how drugs have ruined countless lives, while also portraying its ‘glamorous’ side. The use of drugs has been shown explicitly in many Bollywood films, with only a disclaimer at the bottom, stating the illegality of it. Take a look at some of these films, which show us what prolonged use of narcotics can lead to.

This is probably the only movie where drugs were seen, not as the problem, but as an answer to destroying zombies! The zombie apocalypse started with the use of a new drug and was put to an end with another. So basically, what the movie tried to say is that drugs do kill!
