Teachers' Day special: These 5 films redefined the student-mentor bond on reel!

New Delhi: The special day marked to celebrate and pay reverence to our teachers or Gurus (mentors) - Teachers' Day is on September 5. Every year on this date, we remember the teachers who helped us in shaping our personalities over a period of time. They can be called our mentors, gurus or simply 'favourite teachers'. Although, the feeling should be on each day and not particularly on a single day yet a dedicated Teachers' Day is another way of saying 'Thank You' to your Gurus for everything.

On Teachers' Day, we list the top 5 films you can't afford to miss as they redefined the student-mentor bond on the screen.
