Whenever someone says, Bollywood,
our brain directly takes us to Shahrukh
Khan, Salman Khan and Akshay Kumar. Or else, all the thumka
jhumka of the likes of Shiela and Munni, aka, the item numbers.
But then again, there are actors like Smita Patil, Shaban Azmi, Rekha and Vidya Balan, the leading ladies of
Bollywood who have done many films which are different than the mainstream
Bollywood movies. These movies are full of content and actually makes sense.
They try to show us, a different view towards film and give us a realistic approach.
Today we are going to discuss some recent movies which are content
driven and are women centric. They have tried to tackle the woes of women and
tell us how amazing and strong women can be.
Mardaani: This movie took
the concept of gender neutrality to some other level. Not only did the makers
of the film advertise feminism but also aptly used it in the film. The lead of
the film played by the very versatile, Rani
Mukerji, is a senior inspector who doesn’t hold back being a woman. The
story is about justice and only justice. The end credit song smashes the ball
out of the court and gives the movie a necessary conclusion that it deserves.
And, for all the ladies out there, this film will give you reasons to stand up
Parched: Bollywood has time
and again given films with friendship goals, but have you realised it’s
generally about male friends. Brotherhood has always been an important part of
Bollywood, but very fewer films have been made about sisterhood. And, this film
is one such movies which impresses us with the concept of sisterhood! The movie
is set in a village and talks about the woes of women living in a patriarchal
society where talking about sex and freedom is a taboo. Parched breaks all
kinds of stereotypes!
Goddesses: This movie also talks about the sisterhood and the relationship
between female friends but is stark opposite to that of Parched. This film
talks about new gen urban women and their problems and how they overcome it
with the help of one another. It talks about same sex marriage and mental disorder:
topics which are underrated. Modern women fighting for their lives- who can be
as gentle as Maa Lakshmi and get as strong as Maa Kali. Must watch for all the
women out there!
Lipstick Under my
Burkha: The name itself suggests how rebellious this film could have been.
This film also talks about various women but the important aspect is, it tells
us about the problems of women at various stages of their lives. Ratna Pathak
talking dirty over phone to a young muslim girl breaking rules to follow her
dreams. It shows it all. Indian society has always tried to demean women and
this film shows that and tells us how to tackle the problems.
Padman: This is the last
film on our list and we couldn’t have had a better ending. Women centric films
from a woman’s perspective are one thing but women problem from a man’s
perspective is truly breaking the stereotype! PadMan is one of the most awaited
movies of 2108. This film talks about a sensitive issue like menstruation and
teaches us that you don’t have to be a female to be a feminist! The movie
revolves around Akshay Kumar who plays the role of a man who goes against the
world and it’s hypocrisy to provide low cost sanitary napkins and talks about
menstrual hygiene! Kudos to Akshay for trying to do something different and
winning our hearts all over again!
