Author: Sangeetha Alwar Dialoguebaazi (flair for dialogues) is the backbone of Bollywood 's flamboyant personality. Right from bombastic and florid to pedestrian and monosyllabic, it 's all about saying the right words at the right time. From dances around trees to scantily clad women gyrating to tuneless music in nightclubs, in Bollywood, we have it all. It is one of the largest film production centres in the world. So the question of the reach and success of Bollywood is, lets face it, pointless.
Instead, Wilde treats the idea with the same sense of freedom, compassion and toleration with which he looked at everything in life. His kind and liberal approach towards the issue of changing image of woman is vastly depicted in his plays through his female protagonists whom he provides the liberty and the space to be what they are. Wilde’s women characters are presented and projected in the plays in all their variety and versatility. In the portrayal of Salomé of the eponymous play, for instance, Wilde makes a “heroine out of this sublimated sinner,” (85) though, on the face of it, she is a murderess consumed by her sexual cravings. In this context, Clement Scott, the influential critic of the Daily Telegraph, observes that Wilde “has fascinated us with a savage.” (79) Another illustration of Wilde’s toleration is depicted in the acutely narcissistic personality of Mrs Cheveley of the play An Ideal Husband.
Is a box of colors enough to dismantle patriarchy? Nimisha Bhanot certainly thinks so. She seems to have taken it upon herself to express the shunned idea of sexually liberated Indian woman.

This paper intends to establish bifurcation on having a bicultural identity and not knowing where you belong, which further plays a huge role in influencing the sexual identity of women.

In Hamlet gender inequality is a predominant issue as the two leading females are characterized as weak and are used as tools of manipulation by the male figures. This differs in the movie titled “The Banquet", a loose adaption of William Shakespeare 's tragedy Hamlet set in the Five Dynasties and Ten Kingdoms period in 10th century China. Film director, Feng Xiaogang puts bigger emphasis on the role of the women and gives them more power than Shakespeare in his play. To begin with Gertrude: the very first piece of information we get about her is that she has married her brother-in-law after the sudden death of her
In Lady Gregory’s earlier drafts, Grania is protrayed the conventional innocent female, who is dependent on males, and who wants to remain in a secure environment. However, Gregory began to focus on Grania 's “...precise recognition of the common root of jealousy and egotism that unites Finn and Diarmuid.” (Waters 14). Grania’s epiphany reflects Lady Gregory’s personal response against the cliches regarding femininity. This recognition, is a key element in Grania’s transformation in the final version as a heroine. Later in the play, Waters suggests that Grania becomes an authority figure.
