Abstract

During its awesome journey of 100 years, the Indian Cinema has been a witness to a sea-change in the presentation of the female protagonists. Showing many shades, the portrayal of women not only touched the lives of the audiences but also showcased the strength, beauty and complexity that define a woman. The picture of woman presented by the Hindi Cinema is changing in more than one sense. Women still play the same role as wife, mother, beloved or vamp, but the presentation has changed a lot. The aim of this paper is to locate this journey of changes in the portrayal of female characters in Hindi cinema with a focus on some representative Bollywood films.
