women centric movies

Bollywood can surprise you sometimes when it does not follow its usual route of sexualizing women. We have gathered up thirty-six women-centric movies that will leave you with applause and smile on your face.

If you like movies where women are playing anything else but the stereotypical women then you should watch these movies. Neither are they playing the "Abla Naari" or the "Hot chick", in these movies their roles are filled with substance and are nothing close to the mainstream Bollywood heroine

With the success of movies like Andhadhun and Badhaai Ho, we can safely say Indian audience no more judges the movie on the face value of its star but they prefer a script that gives them more than a goody two shoes love story. And to be honest we are all for it!
