Top 3 Documentary Films Made in India

A documentary is defined as a film or television program that is educational and tells a true story. Early documentary films, dubbed "actuality films" at the time, lasted one minute or less. Documentaries have grown in length and scope over time and now fall into a variety of categories, including instructive, observational, and docufiction. Documentaries are incredibly instructive, and they are frequently used in schools to explain various concepts. Documentary filmmakers have an obligation, to be honest about their worldview without purposefully misrepresenting a subject. The expansion of the documentary film genre has been helped by social media platforms (such as YouTube). These platforms have expanded the distribution area and made information more easily accessible, improving the ability to educate a larger number of people and expanding the reach of those who receive it.
