Powerpuff Girls

Girls rock! I know we all know it coz this blog itself is a dedication to us but whats it without proof. Although the Indian film industry is more or less male dominated we have had our share of girl power movies that have been made in the past. I would like to enummerate a few movies which were big hits and were women-oriented. Pardon me if i talk more about English movies coz i feel they have potrayed women in a much better manner as compared to Hindi movies even though there are some exceptions here and there. So here are my list of favourites in no particular order:

1. Charlie's Angels (Need i say more!!)
2. Erin Brockvich (Julia Roberts was outstanding!)
3. Bend it like Beckham (Yes women can play too!)
4. Lara Croft: Tomb Raider (Angie's action packed movie)
5. Legally Blonde (Inspiring stuff)
6. Kill Bill (Kick some ass! Yeah!)
7. Coyote Ugly (Lets have some fun)
8. Chak De India (Girl Power personified)
9. Dushman (for Kajol's power-packed performance)
10. Damini (for Fire-brand Meenakshi Sheshadri)
So here i am with my list. All you girls out out there are free to list your favourite "Girl Power" Movies. :)

but i think we women have come a long way in Indian cinema too and now they command equal position and attention and are equally used in Bollywood too...they no long er are mere puppets or props :D

that's a long way to go...
