While all three of them try to get their work done, many things unfold and graves are uncovered. Krishna might be a seductress and mischevious but only till it is fun, she takes no crap what-so-ever. Sulu is similar too, she entertains people during her late night bhabhi wala show and yet has a slick counter for anything inappropriate coming her way.

Queen (2014)

Rani is an under-confident girl from Delhi who decides to go on a solo trip to France after her fiance calls of the marriage. On the trip, she realizes he worth which makes her self-reliant and above all, self-confident.

The movie revolves around Nirmala Devi and family and her strict rules and regulations until Manju comes into the picture. Manju comes to her house to stay for a bit and changes the way the house functioned.

Chanda even joins Apu's school to make sure she studies properly. Chanda is the kind of woman who intends to bring a change in the society and breaks norms to make sure her daughter achieves what she couldn't. Sulochana is similar to Chanda, she is open to change and bend norms to achieve what she wants, for herself and for her family.

The women, regardless of their age, in all the movies above took charge for the betterment of their lives and the people around them and Tumhari Sulu is also about a woman who takes up her dream job knowing the challenges and changes it would make in her life.
