6 times when Bollywood celebrated ‘Womance’ a la ‘Veere Di Wedding’
6 times when Bollywood celebrated ‘Womance’ a la 'Veere Di Wedding'
In Bollywood, the term ‘Bromance’ has been explored in several films like ‘Dil Chahta Hai’, ‘Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara’, ‘Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety’ among others. But very rarely we come across films that celebrate ‘Womance’ which is the female equivalent of ‘Bromance’. Shashanka Ghosh’s ‘Veere Di Wedding’, female buddy comedy film starring two of the hottest female stars of Bollywood, Kareena Kapoor Khan, and Sonam Kapoor along with Swara Bhasker and Shikha Talsania is the latest offering which celebrates female bonding like never before. Though we don’t have an out and out ‘Dil Chahta Hai’ kind of film focusing on female bonding yet, Veere Di Wedding seems to be a step in that direction. As the trailer of this “Not a chick flick” was unveiled today we bring you 6 films which showed us how female bonding is not just about gossiping, shopping and chilling; it is much more than the usual friendship. These films talk about how there can be no bond as strong, special and unconditional like a bond between female buddies.
Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury’s ‘Pink’ showed us how women don’t think twice when it comes to fighting for their friend’s right and dignity. The film showcased how Minal (Taapsee Pannu), Falak (Kirti Kulhari) and Andrea (Andrea Tariang) together were a force to reckon with when it came to fighting against the affluent boys who couldn’t take ‘No’ as an answer to their sexual advances.
Unlike male buddy films, the films concentrating on female bonding mostly revolves around solving serious conflicts. This Leena Yadav directorial talks about four women living in a village of Rajasthan. In the film, one fine day, they decide to free themselves from the clutches of age-old traditions of patriarchy, physical and mental abuse.
'Angry Indian Goddesses'
Pan Nalin’s film depicted the bond between a close-knit group of females like never before. The best friends reunite to catch up and celebrate the wedding announcement of one of their friends. While having an impromptu bachelorette the girls go through a roller-coaster ride and thereby address many serious issues.
How can you forget Vijayalakshmi (Lisa Haydon) and Rani’s (Kangana Ranaut) endearing friendship in this Vikas Bahl directed comedy-drama? Despite being poles apart Rani finds a true friend and a guide in Vijayalakshmi, who eventually helps Rani to overcome her grief and find her true identity. I guess every girl needs a friend like Vijayalakshmi in her life.
Veronica(Deepika Padukone) and Meera(Diana Penty) too had very little in common but once they formed a deep bond, their unconditional love for each other gave us major friendship goals.
Rajshree Ojha’s 'Aisha', an Indian adaptation of Jane Austen’s novel Emma showed us Aisha’s girl gang bond over fashion, food, boys and everything you can think off. Which girl wouldn’t love to be a part of such girl gang?
