Thanks to movies like Geetha Govindam, Raahu and more, you can celebrate Women’s Day with inspiring female characters.

Women’s Day is the perfect occasion for us to celebrate all the women who strive to break all barriers and rewrite what is considered impossible for them. Here are a few Telugu movies like Raahu and Oh My Friend, celebrating women with indomitable strength who will leave you inspired.

1) Geetha Govindam

Geetha from Geetha Govindam is certainly one of the most empowered women that you will come across on screen. She calls out her harassers and doesn’t stay mum. She also has her own mind and is never afraid to speak it. Geetha played by Rashmika Mandana, will show you many of her admirable qualities, throughout the movie.

2) Raahu

Imagine dealing with a physical condition while there is a threat to your life! Raahu‘s protagonist, Bhanu does both like a boss. She deals with a condition that makes her blind when she sees blood. What Kriti Garg as Bhanu does to save her life, will show you the lengths that a strong woman can go to.

3) Oh My Friend

Siri played by Shruti Haasan from Oh My Friend balances beautifully between things, be it her education and passion for dance, or her love life with Uday and her friendship with Chandu. The key to a happy life lies in striking a perfect balance between all spheres, and Siri does it with ease.  Besides, the way that Siri grows through the movie is admirable.

4) Ala Modalaindi

Ala Modalaindi was Nithya Menen’s first Telugu movie, and she won our hearts as Nithya from Ala Modalaindi. Nithya’s determination to help other people will have you in awe. She always thinks of others but that does not stop her from thinking about herself, and making herself happy.

5) Iddarammayilatho

While Iddarammayilatho is Sanju and Komali’s story, Akanksha’s decision to support the truth going against her family is as admirable as it can get. Akanksha, played by Catherine Teresa,  is also unabashed about her feelings and doesn’t shy away from telling someone that she loves them. At the same time, she is also sensitive towards their feelings.
