The branch of medicine is dynamic and keeps changing with each day, and thus, it is a big responsibility of the teachers to train medical students to fulfill the roles expected of them. The current review was carried out to understand the role of movies in medical education and the working model that can be adopted for its smooth integration within the existing curriculum. An extensive search of all materials related to the topic was carried out in the PubMed search engine, and a total of 10 articles were selected based upon the suitability with the current review objectives and analyzed. The employment of cinemas or movies in medical education has a special place, considering the rationale that watching and listening a video establish a sense of reality that is more conducive to learning. The use of movies creates a platform for the delivery of medical care in a humanistic, empathetic, and patient-centered manner and that makes the entire process of teaching efficient and effective. The introduction of movies and videos as a part of the medical curriculum delivery is a positive approach to ensure that students learn both cognitive and noncognitive skills. Considering the need that we have to appeal to all the learning domains, all the medical colleges should formulate a potential plan to introduce the use of movies and videos in teaching-learning and thereby benefit all types of learners.
