Move over bromance; this Women’s Day get together and watch movies with your besties that are based on girl’s friendship. They are not only entertaining, but will inspire you and teach you a thing or two about girl/women bonding. And who said that women cannot bond? These movies will give you serious girl bonding goals.
One must and absolutely begin with Pink, a film which is probably one of the best examples of female bonding in recent times. The entire film is a tight slap on the face of patriarchy and misogyny. The best thing about this movie; how women stand with each other, to fight against all odds and offer rock solid support in the toughest of tough times.
Being a woman with dreams is not easy in a male chauvinist world especially when the world continuously says that you are incapable of establishing anything on your own. It is all the more difficult for women in the rural society where you have to fight it out every day to find happiness. ‘Parched’ is a bold attempt to establish women in their rightful place in the society. Do you know what makes it even more alluring? The nuanced and beautiful performances of Radhika Apte, Surveen Chawla, Tannishtha Chatterjee and Lehar Khan. Directed by a woman director, Leena Yadav, this film is one of the most beautiful movies on female bonding in recent times.
Fate brings Meera and Zeenat close to each other and they discover an unusual friendship in Dor. Ayesha Takia and Gul Panang will be remembered in days to come. Can sorrow forge a beautiful relationship? Well, this movie tells you about that it can.
When a young naïve woman ditched in the altar decides to go to her honeymoon alone what happens? Of course, Rani in Queen faces a lot of troubles in Paris. But she develops an amazing friendship with the most unlikely person Vijaylaxmi. It is a friendship like no other; and the most contrasting characters can develop a beautiful relationship. Queen is not only about a girl and her capabilities to come out of the cocoon, it is also about how two women from very different backgrounds can find each other’s company soothing and happy.
Let’s end with one of the eye candies of recent times. If one is talking about girl bonding, it would be a sin to miss Aisha, one of the most charming movies in Bollywood. Of course, it looks as if the entire movie has come out straight from La La land, it is also one of those movies which speaks about how friendship can help you overcome a lot of problems. And it is not always about shopping, gossips and being glamorous.
