Rani Mukherji's "Mardaani", one of the influential films of the year, has been honoured with the most impressive women-centric film title in a recently conducted poll, leaving behind Priyanka Chopra's "Mary Kom".
As 2014 has been more about female-oriented films, a poll was conducted by Bollywood Life that listed out the women-centric films that impressed viewers the most.
Mukherji's tough-cop role seemed to have been received well by the audience, thereby placing her in the top position with maximum number of votes 30,554, which is 48%.
The actress who is known to put her best in films, amazed the viewers with her power-packed action stunts. In the film, she played a strong-headed woman cop, Shivani Shivaji Roy, who fights against child trafficking cases, searches for clues and confronts hidden criminals.
On the other hand, Chopra's "Mary Kom" missed the lead rank by a small margin and stood second with 29,941votes (47%).
Chopra in "Mary Kom" has given her heart and soul to the film. The actress had completely transformed herself from a glamorous actress to hooking some cut muscle thus making her look every bit like the real-world boxing champion. "Mary Kom" is based on the life of the five-time world champion and Olympic medal-winning boxer, Mary Kom.
Next to the list was Kangana Ranaut's "Queen" that managed to get 2,707 votes (4%). "Queen", though a small budget film, received overwhelming responses from the audiences.
However, rest of the films that participated in the poll - Madhuri Dixit and Juhi Chawla's "Gulaab Gang", "Dedh Ishqiya", "Bobby Jasoos" and "Revolver Rani" could hardly find a place in the contest.
Though, there were much expectations from Dixit starrer films "Gulaab Gang" and "Dedh Ishqiya", they failed to impress the audience.
The same goes with Vidya Balan's "Bobby Jasoos" that managed to make an average business, but failed due to poor script. The different disguises sported by the actress in the movie and her odd pairing with the "Fukrey" actor Ali Fazal, too, couldn't pull the crowd to the theatres.
