Indian Audiences Embracing Women-Centric Films

Indian Audiences Embracing Women-Centric Films
Indian cinema appears to be trotting toward gender equality in 2014 with several films featuring women front and center turning into hits and several more in the pipeline.

Leading the charge is the sleeper of the year, Bollywood’s “Queen” by helmer Vikas Bahl, starring Kangana Ranaut as a jilted woman who decides to go on her cherished European honeymoon on her own. The $2 million budgeted film grossed more than $20 million worldwide. Ranaut also stars as a gun-toting politician with a boy toy as the lead of “Revolver Rani.”

“I think watching films with heroes was our comfort zone and it needed a substantial push for audiences to get comfortable watching a film with a female lead only,” Bahl says. “But the driving force behind this has been the story and screenplay that has made people realize that a woman-centric film can be as engaging, entertaining and worth the money spent.

'Inga Enna Solludhu' a damp squib (Ians Tamil Movie Review)

'Inga Enna Solludhu' a damp squib (Ians Tamil Movie Review)
Film: "Inga Enna Solludhu"; Cast: Vtv Ganesh, Meera Jasmine, Santhanam, Srinath, Pandiarajan, Swarnamalya, Mayilsamy, Silambarasan and Andrea Jeremiah; Director: Vincent Selva; Rating: *

It's brave on the part of producer-turned-actor Vtv Ganesh to play the lead in a film which is more or less a semi-autobiography based on events from his own life.

It is not because Ganesh plays the lead that "Inga Enna Solludhu" is unarguably boring, but because it is a shoddily written story that fails to entertain. Ganesh occupies the frame from the opening scene and with little honesty he proves that this project is very dear.
