I have been on a movie marathon for the past couple of days and I am loving it absolutely! During this binge, I happened to notice and realize how women are becoming more empowered, on and off screen. Few of the best movies have women as the main face and how proud are we to see that gone are the days where the movie only had a male as their lead. We women are coming out stronger and united, let’s take IMBB for example. How rare is it to have such a large community and platform where thousands of women support and appreciate each other on a daily basis! *hugs to you all* So here, I have listed below the greatest women-centric movies of all times. I am sure you guys will have a lot more movies to add to the list, please feel free! These are a few of my personal favorites.
1. Mother India (1957)
This movie (remake of Aurat) was one of its first which showed the power and strength of a woman as a mother. This melodrama upheld an inspiring woman who despite her plight and difficulties fought for herself and her children proving to be a pioneer of strength and determination.
2. Water (2005)
This movie shows a group of widows living in a temple in Varanasi (forcibly). One of the women falls in love with a man from an upper caste and that is when the problem starts. It is a beautiful story of a widow who wants to fight against the injustice and social restrictions imposed on women. She fights for her love and her rights. MUST WATCH!
3. Fashion (2008)
I am sure we have all watched this movie which created a big buzz in the industry and among the public too. The story is based on women who are ready to go to any extent to get the name, fame and success.
4. No One Killed Jessica (2011)
A real life story, this movie brought tears to many. I remember being deeply affected by this story and the movie! The acting was commendable and showed us how these 2 strong women fought against all odds.
5. Dirty Picture (2011)
This has to be my favorite. Words aren’t enough to describe this movie. It is an AMAZING film which showed us how Silk broke all stereotypes and emerged to be an outspoken, independent and bold woman. And Vidya Balan is as stunning as ever!
6. English Vinglish (2012)
Sri-Devi did a come-back with this movie and was a hit among all age-groups. A fun story which had a very strong message in the end, won many hearts and gave that push and encouragement to a lot of women out there!
7. Kahaani (2012)
She plans revenge against the man who was responsible for her husband’s death. This woman does not wait for legal action but decides to take matters in her own hands.
