How are you??
I like movies alot(if I haven’t mentioned it already). So in this post today I’ll list down some of my favorite women oriented movies. If you’re thinking why, the reason is ‘just because’. Of course there are so many more and much better ones out there but these are the ones that I find best, So here is the list.
1. No One Killed Jessica
This is the film based on real murder case of Jessica Lal. It has both my favorite actresses Rani Mukharji as a journalist who’s more of an activist and Vidhya Balan as the sister of the victim. The film is all about how they team up and tries to bring the justice to the case.
2. Kill Bill
All time favorite film of mine staring beautiful Uma Thurman. Honestly the reason I watched film for the first time was the big samurai sword with yellow background. It’s a story of vengeance of an assassin, a killer and a mother. Watch it if you haven’t yet.
I personally think this is really one of those film worth watching. The only Indian film I could not predict the end of so far. The story revolves around Vidhya balan as a pregnant woman who is in search of her missing husband. The search brings her to Kolkata from London but the things gets real hard when everybody she comes across denies of ever seeing her husband.
Another one of my personal favorite. Another vengeance story of a lady. After witnessing her parents being killed she grows up to be an assassin. The film was realesed in 2011 staring Zoe Saldana and many great artists.
5. Black Swan
This film is a psychological thriller/ horror staring Natalie Portman as a ballet dancer who gets a lead role in ‘Swan Lake’. She is just perfect for the role of white swan- The Princess Odette, but she starts losing her mind when she becomes more and more like the black swan, Odile.(You know, the psychological thriller part)
6. Mother India
Mother India is the oldest film in this list released in 1957 staring Nargis, Sunil Dutt, Rajendra Kumar. It’s Hindi epic melodrama, a real classic. In this film poverty-stricken woman tries to raise her sons through all the challenges life throws at her. During all this she never lets go of her moral code.( keep tissue papers handy if you watch it)
This film released in 2011 is about a sixteen year old girl who is raised by her father to be an assassin. She is sent on a mission across Europe but while she’s on the mission she is tracked by a ruthless Intelligence agent.It’s a real action thriller. Just love it.
This film released in 2006 featuring Ayesha Takia, Gul Panag, Shreyes Talpade as the lead artists. The story is about two women from really different background, living miles apart. But the life changing tragic incident brings these strangers in a situation where their friendship is tested. (Did I mention all three are just incredible actor and actresses, just love them)
9. The Help
This film is adapted from the book of the same name written by Kathryn Stockett, the movie was released in 2011. The cast consists of Emma Stone, Viola Davis, Octavia Spencer, Bryce Dallas Howard, Jessica Chastain, Ahna O’Reilly, Chris Lowell, Sissy Spacek, Mike Vogel, Cicely Tyson, LaChanze, and Allison Janney. This film is about the racism faced by the ‘help’. They are the ones who are hired by the white families to raise their kids. The first time I watched I cried. I love this film. Must watch.
It’s an Indian musical, romantic drama released in 2005 was adapted from Bengali novel Parineeta by Sarat Chandra Chattopadhyay.The cast in the film consists Vidhya Balan, Saif Ali Khan, Sanjay Dutt, Raima Sen, Diya Mirza. Story revolves around the childhood lovers and their family. The romance is upset by the arrival of another men. What happens next, will they part, will they find their way?
