Many Hindi as well as regional language movies try to portray the village life of India now and then. Some famous movies among them are - Mother India, Lagaan, Upkaar, etc.

We can't say that these films portray the hundred percent real picture of the village life but to some extent they try to touch their lives and make us aware about the difficulties and other problems faced by them.

Some facts portrayed by these movies are :-

  • Forced sale of Agricultural product at less than market price
  • Zamindari system and its drawbacks
  • Exploitation of women by zamindars in Olden Times
  • Lagaan system
  • Forced loan from money lenders in villages at high rate of interest
  • Exploitation by British in colonial period by imposing hi land revenue
