For eons we saw a common formula used in our movies. One charming, dashing hero, an attractive female lead whose only part in the whole movie is to look beautiful and play like a damsel in distress. Then enters the villain, he desires for the actress but gets beaten up by the hero in the end. The hero would win everyone’s heart by his acting, dancing and fighting skills, while it was believed that the heroine’s only job is to support her male lead and look good. And just like everything else, we can see a clear transformation even in the storyline of our films now.
A strong storm is coming, and that is of none other than female-oriented films. Such wave has already arrived in the Hindi film industry and it has been very well appreciated and applauded by the audiences. Whether it’s Lajja, Shakti- The Power, Matrubhumi, Jago, Dor, No one killed Jessica, Queen, English Vinglish, Mardaani all these films portrayed strong female leads and had an equally powerful storyline to it. And this new year we can definitely except new and refreshing changes even in our Marathi film industry. Giving a head start to this is Viacom 18’s ‘Poshter Girl’ which is certainly giving a hard time to all the five male leads in the film. And the fortunate actress playing the lead is … Sonalee Kulkarni.
Known more for her glamorous image, this film will challenge the talented actress hidden in her till date. A serious issue of female foeticide is presented in the movie in a very light hearted manner. Right from the time the movie starts you will be split with laughter, and when you step outside the theatres the strong issue is bond to hit you. ‘Poshter Girl’ is releasing on 12th February across Maharashtra.
