5 strong women-oriented films of 2021

In a year that is destined to dominated by the dudes, some strong women-oriented films will also make their way into theatres and the OTT platform

1. Kajol in Tribhanga:
Kajol has done the maximum number of author-backed roles in recent times, from Dushman in 1998 to Helicopter Eela in 2015. In Tribhanga, Kajol has the luxury of being the produce . She also has a very talented woman Renukha Shahane to direct her. The last time Kajol was directed by a woman –it was Tanuja Chandra in Dushman—was also the first time. In Tribhanga, she will be joined by two other very talented actresses. But make no mistake. This is Kajol’s film all the way. To be released on 15 January on Netflix.

2. Richa Chadha in Madam Prime Minister:
Playing the woman from a weaker section of society who rises to the ranks of the state Chief Minister Richa Chadha has given her all, and then some more, to Madam Prime Minister. One of her co-stars from the film told me, “It’s a showcase for her. We men are mere props.” About time! Women have played props in Hindi cinema for decades. To be released on January 22.

3. Deepika Padukone in Shakun Batra’s Untitled film:
Although Batra’s film has Siddharth Chaturvedi and Ananya Pandey in the cast, this is Deepika Padukone’s show all the way. In fact, it has been learnt that the film was written specially for her since producer Karan Johar wanted to work with her for the longest time. Deepika rejected everything Karan offered her until this came along. She is one female actor who commands as much footage and moolah as the male superstars.

4. Alia Bhatt In Gangubai Kathiawadi:
From the first frame to last, Alia lords over the proceedings of this Sanjay Leela Bhansali film like a queen. Bhansali has earlier done magic with heroine-oriented subjects in Khamoshi (Manisha Koirala), Black (Rani Mukerji) and Padmaavat (Deepika Padukone). Even Devdas was more the ladies Madhuri Dixit and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s film. The film is touted to be released around Diwali.

5. Taapsee Pannu in Rashmi Rocket:
Taapsee returns to the forefront playing a sprinter from Gujarat who rises from running around the gullies of Kutch to national and international racetracks. Akarsh Khurana directs this sports film to be released in the second-half of 2021.
