listed here are three ladies centric motion pictures and the way they miserably failed at ladies empowerment and feminism.

It has been an amazing change for the ladies of Tamil cinema since 2017 as many women-centric motion pictures began coming from that 12 months. Though it’s a well-known reality that Tamil cinema followers worship its heroes, the occasions have now modified. Don’t get me mistaken, we’re nonetheless seeing the main women at the clutches of the villains getting used as a lure to pay money for the mass heroes. However, extra motion pictures of sturdy impartial ladies, who’re in a position to save themselves from misery, are arising too. While quite a few such films have come up within the current previous, a few of these motion pictures have failed at ladies empowerment and feminism. Here are three such widespread motion pictures of prime actors:


Directed by Karthik Subbaraj, Iraivi is a self-proclaimed feminist movie with well-known male actors and pointless again tales. The movie is all about how the male dominated society is being an enormous burden for girls in our nation – A subject which was mentioned even within the black and white period of Tamil cinema. Since it’s not the black and white period, we might anticipate these ladies to face up for themselves or transfer on and begin new lives. But no. These ladies additionally tolerate the emotional and bodily abuses ready for his or her husbands to vary, solely to be dissatisfied throughout many times.

The movie rotates round 4 ladies and the way their lives hold in the course of nowhere due to the hasty selections taken by their companions. It made me completely happy after I lastly noticed a lady in Tamil cinema, who didn’t need something greater than bodily relationship from her male companion. No dedication, monetary or emotional dependency. Malar (performed by Pooja Devariya) is an artist, who meets up with Michel (performed by Vijay Sethupathi) from time to time only for bodily relationship. However, the pointless again story of Malar, the place she has misplaced her husband to an accident made me really feel like this movie belongs within the ‘Sati’ period. Can a lady not transfer on from her previous and begin a brand new life? Okay, it’s her determination to not have any extra relationships. But when she ended issues with Michel, she phases a drama of seeing one other man, whereas in actuality, she is being lonely. Why is she being lonely? Because she is a ‘Nalla Ponnu’.


Played by Andrea Jeremiah, this movie exhibits a so referred to as fashionable girl, who’s at a prime place in an MNC. She clothes up like Hollywood heroines, she goes to pubs, drinks and smokes as a result of, hey she is fashionable. Will a lady with fashionable ideas keep in a relationship the place she is being emotionally and bodily abused constantly? Yes, in response to Taramani. After giving delivery to her son, she ends her marriage along with her husband as she finds out that he’s not into ladies. Then she winds up with a homeless, jobless man. After her mom involves find out about this relationship, she throws her out alongside along with her son in the course of the night time. So what does she do? She doesn’t guide a lodge and keep there, however spends the night time at a railway station as a result of that’s the place her homeless boyfriend lives. After transferring in with him in a house, he abuses her so badly in entrance of her son with phrases that nobody would enable. He would typically name her names and nag her at any time when she has a dialog along with her male colleague. Yet, she wouldn’t finish the connection and provides him infinite variety of possibilities.


Nayanthara performs twin roles within the movie – considered one of a darkish skinned harmless woman from a village, who has inferiority advanced points – as a result of she is darkish skinned, and the opposite a good skinned metropolis-primarily based girl. On what sinful land can a darkish skinned girl be assured and hopeful? When she finds a person, who agrees to marry her and accepts her despite the fact that she is darkish skinned (sarcasm meant), she dies in an accident. Then she comes again as a ghost and avenges all those that had been answerable for the accident. Later, the truthful skinned Nayanthara lets the spirit posses her as a result of the spirit was that of a poor darkish skinned girl.
