While all major genres in cinema continue to flourish, one that has been the flavor for many seasons across the world is biopics. These stories, which highlight real people who have shifted the social fabric in some way, always capture the most attention. When these stories are brought to the screen in the form of movies, they add another layer of excitement. A sub-branch that extends from this genre is biographical documentaries. Whether it's about a historical figure, a person who rose from the ashes, or even true crime (after all, they are biographical; what does "true" even mean?), these films become especially intriguing when they are about people we have revered forever and reveal aspects of their lives that we were not even aware of or that might change the way we look at them.

Over the years, we have seen many such films and have rejoiced in them. Some have succeeded, some haven't; some have even tried to whitewash the image of the subject. But one thing is certain: they serve as documents of their times and a learning resource for generations to come. DocuBay is a leading platform that offers a gamut of content for documentary lovers, with something for every taste. It features science documentaries, war and crime documentaries, and many more. You can watch them all with your OTTplay Premium subscription.

Today, as we explore DocuBay, we look at some of the most compelling biographical documentaries available on the platform. These documentaries focus on three iconic figures from three different industries.

RFK: America's Lost President (2018)


Did you know that Robert F. Kennedy, the brother of John F. Kennedy, was also killed? Not only that, but he was even in contention to become the President of the USA in 1968. RFK: America's Lost President explores what might have been if he hadn't been assassinated and had become the US President. The documentary shows how he transformed from a Cold War warrior to an advocate of peace, detailing his journey from a privileged teen to a man who helped the marginalized and soon became a presidential candidate.

Marilyn Monroe: Icon of Our Time (2015)

The world was never prepared for the rise of Marilyn Monroe, who, in a very short-lived life and an illustrious brief career, managed to achieve what many with decades-long resumes cannot. Her iconic image, with blonde hair and white dress flying, is not her only gift to the industry. With some very iconic roles and starting a production company that set off the collapse of the studio system monopoly in Hollywood, Monroe has given the industry a great deal. The documentary captures that, and you must watch it.

Maradona: The Golden Kid (2006)

The Golden Boy of soccer is no stranger to any of us, and we all know his participation and contribution to the world of soccer. The documentary traces the life of the man behind the legend, the boy who was born on the margins but only dreamt of two things: one, to play at the FIFA World Cup, and two, to win it for Argentina. This documentary is the most inspiring on the list as it captures his short-lived career with Argentina and looks at all he managed to achieve in that time. the documentary also looks at his downfall, the bout with drugs, and more.
