So what if B-town hasn’t started talking about a superwoman yet. That in no way means our heroines do not possess the power (or the license) to kill! And on the occasion of Vijay Dashmi, a day when Goddess Durga killed the demon, we take a look at the femme fatales who’ve used that power well…on the big screen that is

There’s no denying that Bollywood has churned out movie after movie singing praises of heroes who possessed special power, undisputed courage and strength and undying love. But in this male-dominated industry where do the ladies stand? Right beside these larger-than-life males!

Vijay Dashmi is the day when we cherish and pay tribute to ‘power’ that’s personified as Goddess Durga, who destroys the evil and emerges victorious. So here we carefully pick and choose the women – Vidya Balan, Anushka Sharma, Deepika Padukone, Sridevi, Priyanka Chopra, Richa Chaddha, Parineeti Chopra -  and their respective characters from the recent movies that set a perfect example of female strength and courage.

Who do you think is the most powerful female character of 2011-12?

    Sridevi hands down. Both in the film and in real life for creating history by becoming the only actress in bollywood to make a triumphant comeback with such a beautiful film

    I have no much experience with Bollywood films but I have to say after watching few movies both old and new, the moment I discovered Sridevi I immediately could relate to her character in English Vinglish and loved her. That was the first movie I watched for her. An Indian friend recommended me watching Nagina, Sadma, Lamhe and Laadla. I have watched both Nagina and Sadma and now I’m her big fan. She is so damn versatile. If they say she is Meryl Streep of India I totally agree. Like Streep, she is very versatile. I’m in love with her now and she made me like Bollywood too.

    I’m in Dubai and I have never seen people go to watch any star’s movie the way I see they are going for Sridevi. I can see all kind of people in cinema. Indians, Arabs, Europeans, Americans etc, She has a wide range appeal. That is what star is. And all exit happy about their experience. I give my vote to THE GREAT SRIDEVI JI.

    With English Vinglish Sridevi has made the best comeback ever. The movie is very nice and her performance is the most powerful. She should get all the awards this year for her performance, specially the national award. She is deserving all the love she is getting today. A talent can never stay away for long. Sridevi is a real talent. And no one is better than her for sure.

    This year had been so far excellent for Bollywood where so many woman-centric films have done well.. Out of all the movies, I would say that ENGLISH VINGLISH is the best…. What a powerful comeback by the Queen of Indian Cinema – SRIDEVI… She has solely carried the film on her shoulder… I bet no other actress can carry this role with such conviction… Sridevi is undoubtedly the HERO of this film. She truly deserves all the awards for this year… :)

    English Vinglish is a brilliant movie and Sridevi has given a mind blowing performance! Her expressions, body language, beauty are worth Saluting!! She deserves all the awards this year.

    Whilst all those actors and actresses are brilliant at their craft, I have to give it to the wonderful Sri Devi. As I have said on numerous occasions; I do not understand a word of the local languages (possibly Hindi) however; this gorgeous and talented actress Sri Devi’s performance in English Vinglish and indeed her other films, transcends language. Her performance is powerful and conveys the gist of the story and does not need words to explain the what is happening as the film unfolds. The name Sri Devi is another name for talent personified.
