Top 5 Movies Of 2023 Which Broke Stereotypes And Become Huge Success

As 2023 comes to an end, let's have a look back at the compelling stories that were released on both the silver screen and OTT platforms revealing diverse narratives highlighting the need to make stories that have meaning and motive. These movies and web series not only entertain audiences but also encourage meaningful conversations about societal issues. From dynamic duo Arjun and Kartk's 'Taali,' based on the life of transgender activist Gauri Sawant, to Vidhu Vinod Chopra's '12th Fail,' portraying the highly inspirational life story of Manoj Kumar Sharma; here is an overview of some of the stereotype breakers of the year.

Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani

This movie, within the framework of commercial cinema, explored gender equations, oppressive family narratives, and a love far removed from the often regressive values of director Karan Johar's debut movie, 'Kuch Kuch Hota Hai.' A Durga Puja celebration where two men perform the 'Dola Re' song, a lingerie store where the hero is schooled to accept women as equal human beings, a grandmother who finds love again, a heroine who won't be intimidated, and a hypermasculine hero who unlearns sexism are just some of the moments that made this movie so ahead of typical dynamics of Dharma movies. This movie represents Johar's deliberate attempt at more nuanced storytelling. Starring Ranveer Singh, Alia Bhatt, Dharmendra, Shabana Azmi, and Jaya Bachchan, the movie is now available on Amazon Prime.


As stated by the dynamic duo Arjun and Kartk in various media interactions, when they chose to make a series based on transgender activist Shreegauri Sawant's life, they were aware of the challenges ahead. However, the series and its resounding success have cleared their faith not only in the project but also in the decision to cast Sushmita Sen in the role of Shreegauri. The web series not only became one of the most-watched Indian OTT content but also mainstreamed an awe-inspiring story that had never been heard before. The show also cast hundreds of transgender persons in the cast and with great sensitivity portrayed the heartbreak and strife that all LGBTQ individuals go through in our society. Directed by Ravi Jadhav and backed by a superb performance by Sushmita, 'Taali' is available for streaming on JioCinema.
