Movies inspire people in many ways. Pick any topic like lifestyle, life philosophy, relationships, travel, timepass and so on, I can suggest films on these. Or you can suggest to me too. Although books do the same things along with increasing our visualisation power. But movies can inspire people to venture out. The true impact of a place is felt only through visualization. Locations shown on movies, aided by green screen or not, have a tremendous effect on people and create a desire in them to visit. Though it sets the expectations really high. Locations shown in movies look like dream places. Sometimes post visiting the place we feel disheartened as the visuals do not match. But believe me, all in your mind and eyes. Don’t set any expectations and be open to the new.

The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty
The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty is a movie about a man who embarks on an adventure when he finds out that his job is under threat. Until that point, his life was very relatable. The movie is quite inspiring to anyone struggling with their day-to-day routine.
This movie is highly recommended for travel enthusiasts and people stuck in a bad place in life, as it takes you on an awesome adventure and may motivate you to move out of your comfort zone. It is a positive, optimistic and surprising movie with beautiful cinematography.
The Darjeeling unlimited
Estranged brothers Francis (Owen Wilson), Peter (Adrien Brody) and Jack (Jason Schwartzman) reunite for a train trip across India after the death of their father. But the best part of the movie to me is the setting. The loud sounds, the colours, the encounters that perfectly portray India will bring a smile and a feeling of melancholy to those who have already visited the country, and will give a serious case of wanderlust to those who haven’t.
If you haven’t been to Paris yet, you will definitely want to plan a trip after watching this movie. If you have you’ll want to return.Amelie is a beautiful example of french cinema.Amelie will take you to the most inspiring locations in Paris.
World Cinema is full with travel related movie. These are my favorite. As I have mentioned above, please suggest your favorites too. Let’s all travel together.
