​2. Dead Poet’s Society

​Late actor Robin Williams plays the character of John Keating, an English teacher, in a boys’ boarding school who forces his young scholars to look at life differently. Keating’s ‘carpe diem’ speech is perhaps one of the most evocative ones in cinema.

​3. Taare Zameen Par

​When Ishaan (Darsheel Safary) is packed off to boarding school because he refused to take academics seriously, it takes an observant art teacher (Aamir Khan) to recognise a learning disability. This film is considered a must-watch for parents and teachers alike.

​Sidney Poitier took on the role of teacher at a school catering to lower-income group students. The film addresses issues of race and poverty along with classic teacher-student conflict and its resolution.

​A biopic based on maths teacher Anand Kumar, played by Hrithik Roshan, who takes it upon himself to teach teens who are from a lower economic background and cannot spend on tutors for cracking the national joint entrance tests.

​6. 3 Idiots

​Loosely based on author Chetan Bhagat’s novel, ‘Five Point Someone’, the film is about coming of age engineering students who tackle the various ups and downs, and a very difficult college principal.

​7. Top Gun: Maverick

​When the student becomes the teacher. Tom Cruise’s Pete ‘Maverick’ Mitchell finds himself back at TOPGUN trying to train his best friend’s son and other young air force pilots for an almost impossible mission.

​8. Kung Fu Panda

​A panda who wants to master kung fu finds himself to be the ‘chosen one’, much to the disappointment of other warriors and most importantly, the master. The panda trains under the watchful eyes of the master to become the ultimate kung fu warrior.

​9. Stanley Ka Dabba

​A story of a young orphan who cannot bring lunch to school and gets into trouble with a cantankerous Hindi teacher. It is such a heart-warming story that is sure to tug at your heartstrings.

​Another film where a teacher has to help her students overcome, poverty, violence and race to find a better footing in life. The protagonist, LouAnne Johnson, is played by Michelle Pfeiffer.
