Things have changed so dramatically in the last three years. There's been an invasion of ideas, even little girls know so much. Naturally, cinema is reflecting that.
It would do our cinema a world of good if filmmakers and writers strove to discover more shades to a woman's character and concentrated on fleshing out interesting sketches. Most filmmakers shy away from it because a lot of thinking goes into writing a female character. It is lot easier to write a male dominated character.
