These are 10 movies that showcase the status, problems, challenges of women on the big screen.
‘Cinema is a mirror of society‘ This is a popular saying. In most of the films, the existence of the heroine is because of heroes. This is the truth of our society. In our male-dominated society, women are not supposed superior to men. But over time, society changed and movies changed too. Rightly speaking, films are showing the way to society. This changing trend of society and films is not of today. Its beginning has long been a long time.
Today, our films have a very important role in the better position of women. With the help of some films, we will try to tell you how the changing message of the films, the format brought changes in the situation of women. How the effect of decades-old films is being seen as a change in society today.
So let’s go about 10 big films that changed the concept of society towards women.
The film, which came out in 1957, exactly 10 years after independence, brought the country’s condition to the world. The film received nominations in Oscars. Directed by Mahmud, Nargis, Raj Kumar, Sunil Dutt, and Rajendra Kumar played the main character in this film. But the story of the film revolves around Nargis. His character served female power in a different way in front of the world. In the period when the women’s empowerment debate was not in the mainstream, in the meantime, such a film can be considered as a visionary step.
In 1994, Shekhar Kapoor directed the film was the most controversial film of his time. This movie made on the life of the robber Phoolan Devi brought the poor form of poverty, exploitation, women’s miserable situation, the caste system in front of everyone. In the film, other than Phoolan Devi’s hooded image, she was shown as a fighter fighting the patriarchal society. The film has given a lot of debate over the long-standing female upliftment, social reforms. Keeping a true image of Indian rural women in front of the world. The film has tremendous resistance.
Water is a contractual strain on stereotypes, creeds. The film was banned. Its content was genuine that society was not ready to adopt it. The film has two issues being prominent. Child marriage and the life of the widow. How social evils take away all the reasons for being happy with a widow, the movie is shown in a tremendous fashion.
English Vinglish is one of Sridevi’s finest movies. Important points like late edge affair were also given place in the film. The children’s attitude towards their mother and father was also prominently displayed by the film.
In recent years, there was no better movie than Queen for female empowerment. We did not deny the rest of the films by saying this. Rather, there is a reason behind our saying that you will understand later.
In this film, Kangna was a very ordinary urban girl. The character is such that a large population can add it to itself. There can not be anything bigger for any movie than it can be linked to a large population. ‘Without a man, the life of a woman is not possible’ is a stereotype on this film. The middle-class girl who has no story, how can she tell her story, the film explain to us. The list of films made on women empowerment in the country is incomplete without the queen.
There is no roll moodle for girls, in the world of boxing, the boxer Mary Kom, who has brightened the country’s name in Boxing. Omang Kumar, the director, brought his struggle, fight, and hard work on the big screen in 2014. While the film’s box office performed well, its message brought a face to the face of the women in front of society. The film showed that if you have passion, then if you are obsessive then nobody can stop you from reaching your destination. Mary Kom is a great example of women empowerment.
What is the status of women in the modern lifestyle, especially in metro cities? It is shown in the film how the so-called Modern Society still sees women as an object of enjoyment. Through this film, things like attitude, attitude, perceptions, and anticipation of women towards women were thrown on a big screen with a rug.
Sridevi’s movie Mom is the story between a stepdaughter and mother. How can a mother do anything to convict the accused after being punished by her daughter, she is shown in the film wisely. The film plays a vital role in removing the weak image of women in society.
Begum Jan is a Hindi remake of Bengali film ‘Rajkahini’. Vidya Balan plays the role of a Tawaf in the film. The fight of women’s self-esteem in the film is shown in the best fashion.
This film, which came in 2018, can be seen as some films that eliminate male monopolies from spice and intelligent fiction films. Alia Bhatt’s character in the film is highly appreciated. In spite of the wiki cassette in the film, Alia stayed in the lead role, yet the film was liked by the audience. It shows that time is changing without the heroes, films are accepted.
The documentary film that came in this year gave the world a chance. The 26-minute documentary talked about the situation of a small village in Haryana and named it ‘Best Documentary Over’ in Oscars. The film is a satire on the perception that people have in mind about the period. Describing the women’s improved status and awareness of all the claims, the film brought forth a bare picture of the society. This movie is not Indian. Since its background is Indian, we gave it place in our list.
