Women in Tamil Cinema

After seeing an analysis by SIFY on Women in Cinema, I able to wonder why we doesn't have that much of women based movies.

Only few of the films, have well told stories and had women infront of hero..
Just want to list that type of movies.

1. Bharathiraja's Puthumai Penn - It's the movie telling about a middle family woman facing critics..And in that as audacious women
2.Balachander's Manathil Uruthi Vendum - It's again a well written story of a woman..Suhashini did a splendid job here.

Other than above two, I am not able to figure any good movies which were based on women characters. We can say Asin's role in Ghajini. But that character is different for this decade's tamil cinema. But overall we can't say such movies.

And Magalir Mattum and Snehithiye would be based on Women, but changed or make any changes. First one, make people to laugh and the second one, merely thriller having all artists as women.

Eventhough Simran acted in Kovilpatti Veeralakshmi, which women based story, more than 70% of people in TN doesn't know about the movie itself.

Women characters are nothing but a doll, where eventhough well educated will love mechanic,illetrated hero. Many women are there in real time, having lot of stories within them. And also, we have to point out the fact that the film lovers mostly will not accept the heroine based stories. Still I remember about Rajni's Nattukku Oru Nallavan. There Kushboo will do a stunt, when Thalaivar is present. I came to know that that is one of the reason of the failure of that movie.

Cheran kinda directors can come forward to produce these kinda movies.
