MK isn't even released yet and her PR is already declaring it as some revolutionary movie in Hindi cinema.

Ouch

 A decent analysis. I'd like to see more discussion on women in Indian cinema.

Thank god they added subtitles. I had a hard time understanding her. Her face barely moves.

Also, why hasn't she ever included Kajol's Gupt or Manisha Koirala's Khamoshi/Dil Se/Bombay/Escape from Taliban ? 

Or let's take it a little further: Alia Bhatt's Highway


Yet she only mentions how Kareena and Deepika have done substantial work beside Kangana/Sri Devi/Vidya. 

This lady is such an ass kisser.

I think every now and then Bollywood has made some female centric movies. Guddi, Seeta Aur Geeta, Aandhi, Khoobsurat, Khoon Bhari Maang, Chaalbaaz, Umrao Jaan, Damini, Phir Teri Kahani Yaad Aayi, Fiza, Zubeida, Astitva, Chandni Bar - these and others I may have forgotten are all female centric movies where the woman took center stage.

 

Some were major hits as well. I think recent hits like Queen, Kahaani, Dirty Picture and English Vinglish have broken barriers of mass appeal. But I think credit is due to all actresses and filmmakers who have attempted to give women equal footing.

Being a contra view I think blames is on more on women themselves for our current generation view towards womancentric movie. They r part of 50% population but as an influencer nd opinion maker of movie viewer in a family what is their role in last decade? we celebrate Fashion as woman centric movie by forgeting same sucessful chopra or aiswarya r only bcoz of product of fashion. I tag that movie as realistic than woman centric. They just play their card of woman issue in the fag end of carier when there is chance of award nd appriciation rest they r happy in commercial movie. Infact on mary kom we deny existance of woman who r minority and diff race . we r just happy with makeup.
