Wonder Women (English):
In a world full of movies with testosterone-filled action sequences and Heroism, Anjali Menon has brought to the table a film about motherhood, rather sisterhood during a vulnerable stage of pregnancy. While ‘women-centric’ films these days have a pre-set format of bold dialogues and modern choices, Wonder Women portrayed flawed women who are all moody, irritable, and hungry because of their pregnancy. The movie is a different take on womanhood and is a mixed bag in terms of the movie-watching experience. The movie does not have much of a purpose or a message. It is a concept to make people realize that pregnancy is not a joke, which is unfortunately still not understood by many in the real world. Kudos to Anjali Menon, Parvathy Thiruvothu, Nithya Menen, Padmapriya, Sayonara Phillip, Nadiya Moidu, Amrita Subash and Archana Padmini for representing all the women and mothers out there.
