Women’s Day Special: 7 Women-Centric Films You Must Watch

 Cinema is often considered to be a male-dominated industry, where heroes are treated as demi-gods and go on to star in leading roles long after their 30s. However, the same isn’t the case for the actresses. Many a times, their role in films is limited to a song-and-dance sequence, and once they are older, not even that. However, there are a few films that gave some of the leading actresses lots of scope to perform. These films gained critical acclaim as well good box office collections. On the occasion of Women’s Day, let’s take a look at some films that you must watch.
