We have previously discussed these women-driven films in detail and further defined what they represent. Here we look to sum things up.
Compassionately shot by Oscar-winning cinematographer Russell Carpentar (of Titanic fame), Parched takes you on a thought-provoking journey through rural India. As women persistently combat poverty, problems and abuse to break through the shackles of a backward society, Leena Yadav’s internationally acclaimed film Parched vehemently paves a point!

Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury’s near-universal movie Pink indicts the hard truths of an otherwise taboo society. Pink uses the power of cinema and the strength of women in delivering a powerful message – one that seems more relevant with every passing day. Read Pink Review here.
Directed by Rahul Bose, Poorna tells the true tale of Poorna Malavath – a mere means girl from rural India and her ultimate quest to climb Mount Everest.

Nitesh Tiwari’s seamlessly strung sports film Dangal needs no introduction. The film has evoked emotions, overwhelmed audiences and won hearts worldwide.
