Over the years women have branched out into various industries and have proven their calibre time and again. Women’s Day is about thanking every woman that has helped you fight this struggle called life.
Whether you will show up for work and celebrate the day with colleagues or take a break for some ‘me’ time, this article has something for either scenario.
Though film industries have been releasing women-centric content for years, the difference is still very high. But that’s not the case with ZEE5. If anything, they have been emphasising a lot on women-centric content and kept their collection ‘Balanced’, as all things should be.
In this article, we have listed down some of the must-watch movies and web series from ZEE5 this Women’s Day. If you ask us, we would recommend you to watch everything on the list, that is, if you have the time to do it.
The Sholay Girl: Let’s start with the latest one in the list. Can anything get better than spending your time watching a movie about the first stunt women on Women’s Day? The best part is ZEE5 is planning to release the movie on their OTT platform on March 8th, dedicating it to all the women. As for us, we got sold right when we saw the trailer. Bidita Bag’s portrayal of the fierce Reshma Pathan is the magnum opus. With good production values and an eye-catching central performance by Bidita Bag, The Sholay Girl is an inspiring movie dipped in vintage Bollywood that is tailormade for Women’s Day.
MS Subbalakshmi: The next one in our list will also be released on March 8th, but unlike the first one this is a Telugu web series. Though this falls under the comedy genre, the plot line of the series itself is very intriguing and will leave you asking for more. The narrative of the story revolves around this woman who ends up spending her wedding anniversary alone because her husband, being a workaholic, forgets it. And what follows is something that we would recommend you to find out yourself.
Khaemae Mein Matt Jhankain: Now let’s talk about some short films which can be watched while commuting to work, we told you we got your covered as well. This is a ZEE5 Original Short Film that features one of the best concepts we have come across, something that you do not see very often when it comes to short films. Khaemae Mein Matt Jhankain is a story about this village where all the men fall in love with this trapeze artist. But little did they know that there is more to this than meets the eye and it is this mystery that will keep you hooked till the end.
Dobaara: Dobaara is yet another inspiring short film, which will make you look at life differently. The movie revolves around this couple, played by Manav Kaul and Parvathy Omanakuttan, who get married to each other, but not by choice. However, after 20 years, Parvathy embarks on a journey to rediscover herself, breaking away all societal shackles. Why makes this choice? What will her husband Mohan (Manav Kaul) do about it? We cannot stress more on how important it is for every woman to watch this short film.
That pretty much wraps up our list of movies that you must watch on Women’s Day. Which one are you going to watch first? Let us know in the comments.
Times really do change. Woman are now more empowered really especially in our country PH. They actually lead some of the government branches..
Oh I haven’t heard of these films yet. I better watch all of these as soon as I can. Thanks for sharing this great article..
Happy (belated) Women’s day to you. I am glad that we live in a time where women are recognized, unlike several decades ago where women were confined to the home, cooking and raising the kids. I will take a look at those movies and shows you mentioned. Maybe I will do some binge watching this weekend. 🙂
Thanks for introducing me to these wonderful and strong filmmakers. I have to check them out!
Dobaara sounds like an interesting film. I know a lot of women can relate to it. I am interested to find out how Parvathy’s life turns out.

All these shows sounds amazing, I will see if I can check them out. I will be adding them to the list of movies to see. Thank you for sharing!
I used to watch so many Indian movies as a child and they were in Hindi, even though I’m not Indian lol. I could get the plot through the parts played.
I have not seen or heard of any of these movies. I will check them out now.
Good bucket list of movies, haven’t heard of them but will love to watch.
It’s great to see movies portraying women as strong, beautiful and independent. Will check out these movies but do they have english subtitles? Thanks!
Such a great post! I have never heard of any of these movies, but it’s so important for movies to change the way females are represented.
Hurrah! In the end I got a webpage from where I know how to actually obtain valuable facts concerning my study and knowledge.
