Learning Investment Lessons from movie Chal Man Jeetva Jaiye

Jainam Share Consultants had organized a movie day on 6th January 2018 and the name of the movie was “Chal Man Jeetva Jaiye”. I am really thankful to Jainam Family for giving me the chance to watch a worthy movie. I am grateful to the entire cast & crew of the movie for the wonderful performance and script.

I am really grateful to Riddhi who helped me with editing and very effective ideas.

I always believe that we can learn many concepts from our surrounding environment. Similarly, this movie has some of the amazing concepts that I have learned and you can also which can be beneficial to our investment journey and as well as to our life.

  • Decide our process to get success in our life

Extract from the movie – The movie began where it was shown that a father is pressurizing his son, Dev, a lot for achieving victory. Dev, unknowingly started following his father’s dreams but he did not know how to get a victory.

Co-relation in real life – A similar situation happens with all of us when it comes to our investments. Investors’ starts investing in multi-bagger stocks whereas they don’t even have enough knowledge about the company. We need to gather knowledge first and then decide whether the company is worth investing. If we don’t do a thorough study about the company, then there are chances that we might lose our capital rather than achieving reasonable returns.

  • Pressure and stress can affect our decision-making ability

Extract from the movie – Dev was pressurized by his father to achieve victory and as a result, he lost his focus from all aspects and started losing in all the fields. He was often scolded and tortured by his father for not being able to earn medals and certificates.  Dev had always been forced upon the dreams that his father had for him. Dev was never given a chance to explore about his interests and that affected his decision making power.

Dev’s uncle, Vasant, had incurred a major loss in the family business and was highly stressed about it. He got pressurized by thinking about the materialistic and luxurious life of the family that he wanted to maintain and that led him in making a wrong decision. He chooses an unethical way: of leaving the country and doing fraud with the lives of the people by taking away all their money that they had invested in their company. He thinks of this way as ethical because Mr. Ajay Walia (whose company got bankrupt and he lost everything) had also done the same. Looking at someone else do it; made him think of the wrong way as the right way and he forgets about the moral values and ethics that he had learnt from his parents of not doing fraud or cheat with the lives of the people.

Co-relation in real life – Likewise, while there is a mad bull run in the market, when we see our fellow investors making money, we feel stressed and that pressure leads us to unethical thinking. We lose the capability of spotting the good investment companies; thus leading us to losses. Sometimes, such situations encourage us to compromise with our ethics & values for making an investment decision; hence forcing us to make faulty decisions. Rather than getting jealous of others making money, if we focus on our decisions and stick to our ethics; then there will be ample of opportunities coming up within our competence area that will lead us to good returns.

  • Remaining emotionally stable also during the worst period of our life

Extract from the movie – Viren, who is playing a character of Vasant’s son, saw his father being stressed and hence taking wrong decisions. So he keeps himself calm and stays emotionally stable and decides that he won’t let his father take the wrong decision. Vasant asks his family to support him and the whole family does that except Viren and Dev. Although knowing that this is the crucial time for the entire family and they will have to face the whole family; both the brothers decide to stick to the ethical and the correct path. The family often scolded them, tried to emotionally break them and also tried to prove them wrong but these brothers keeps fighting for what’s right and not bothering that it was their family on the other end.

Co-relation in real life – Market often shows us a challenging period during our investment journey but we need to remain emotionally stable and keep ourselves away from emotional diseases such as ego, envy, greed, fear etc. All such emotions influence our decision and lead us to get deviate from our process. Please refer to the article for further details of how does our emotion influence our investment decision BIBLIOPHILE: THE MOST IMPORTANT THING BY HOWARD MARKS “COMBATING NEGATIVE INFLUENCES”

  • Importance of different viewpoints

Extract from the movie – Vasant and Viren both have different perceptions of the same situation. Viren was enforcing for a different viewpoint which led the entire family re-think about their decision and yes they finally accepted the viewpoint that Viren and Dev has been explaining since the beginning, as it was a better and an ethical way of dealing with the problems. We should accept the viewpoint of the other and try to empathize from their angle. There is a possibility that we might get a new perspective to see a problem and that can be more useful to our decision making.

Co-relation in real life – When it comes to our investment journey; we face the same situation. There are ample of people who will give you too many companies to make investments in, as per their knowledge and their research. But it’s up to us whether to believe all of them or to believe some of them. People have different mindsets and there will be a situation where 1 person days good about the company whereas the other says bad. In such a situation; we get to know a different viewpoint and a different perspective from various people we trust on. But we should at times believe on people and re-think couple of times before investing as it is a matter of our earned money through hard work.

  • Acceptance of our mistake

Extract from the movie – Vasant accepted his mistake of taking a wrong decision due to stress and ego and he decides to change his decision. If he wouldn’t have accepted the viewpoint and changed his decision in time; then that would have led him to lose his brand value, his goodwill, his happiness, his inner peace, the trust that others had in him, his relationships, etc.

Co-relation in real life – We often make mistakes during our investment journey but we need to realize it at the earliest and accept our wrong decision by not getting influenced of other factors. We should think of recovering our losses and increasing our profits rather than feeling guilty on our wrong decision.

  • Have faith in yourself

Extract from the movie – Vasant in his past had grown the business and created a brand value. He had never lost his money. But when he faced such a situation; he had lost faith in his own self and he thought that he doesn’t have the courage to rebuild the empire. But Viren always showed trust in his father’s ability and he kept on saying that he knows that his father has the ability to build an empire again.

Co-relation in real life – During a sluggish market scenario, there are times that even our best investment cannot generate good money for us. But we have to have patience and trust on our decisions that sooner or later we will earn and gain good returns.

  • We are losers just because of ourselves and not because of others

Extract from the movie – Dev was unable to express his thoughts in front of his own family. His continuous failure due to his father pressure had restricted him to open up and talk about what he wanted to. When he was asked to faced his complexions and his fear; only then he fought with his own self and was able to realize that he failed because he had created a belief in his mind that he is unable to do anything in his life.He only can able to create an impression in front of his family after getting the realization of his weaknesses. It was then that he realized that it wasn’t his father that was the cause of his failure but it was his inner self that didn’t let him take a leap. But when he overcame his weaknesses; he achieved success.

Co-relation in real life – We also face similar situations during our investment journey. We might have made losses couple of times. But we should face those failures and try learning of overcoming them rather than withdrawing the money. One should think of recovering the losses and switching from the negative balance (loss) to the positive balance (profits). Because if we don’t think positive then those failures might affect our future decision for making an investment.

As it is rightly said “YOU MAY FIND THE WORST ENEMY OR BEST FRIEND IN YOURSELF”

  • Building brand value takes efforts for years but just a few minutes to ruin it

Extract from the movie – Vasant and his brothers had worked really hard for years to create a brand value for their company. But if he would have decided to take a wrong decision of declaring bankruptcy; then that would have ruined the brand image that they had build in for years. People would have cursed them for their decision as they would have cheated them. And this would have created a negative impact for the company and its image.

Co-relation in real life – Similarly, we should always be careful while taking a decision in life and not make any blunders. We should think with a peaceful mind and not atleast when we are stressed. If done so in stress; we can lose the trust that people have in us and we can harm our reputation which we have built with our hard work over the years. Remember, “DON’T LET ONE MISTAKE RUIN A BEAUTIFUL THING”.

  1. Watch Movie today..
    Wonderful relation with stock mkt..
    Realy we shld take decision like in Movie taken.
    Nice blog..
    Keep doing such work in future also..

  2. Nice in context to Stock market, Is there any similar book to read or can you or anyone else reading this similarly give a try in explaining it in context with mind, I mean implications of thought process or state of mind in difficult situations and it’s behavioural impact like in movie Dev was trying to understand thought process correlating it with mind and it’s impact on human behaviour. It will help lots of people to surely improve their ability of decision making in their difficult times by understanding mind(s) of others / himself / herself before concluding any matter.

  3. Really a very beautiful movie, must watch. This blog is really interesting, I liked your view of explaining the lessons learnt from the movie. Thank you for this wonderful post…
