For long, they were shown as gentle and soft-spoken women, brought up with tender care, tied to strong cultural values and often dependent on their possessive brothers. Come 2000, Bollywood started introducing strong sisters a la Karisma Kapoor in "Fiza" and Juhi Chawla in "My Brother...Nikhil", where the love-hate bond continued, but the women began to get stronger roles.

The brother was no longer just the 'rakshak' of the sister's 'izzat' as B-Town cliches would have it but is also shown as sharing an endearing symbiotic relationship of emotional support. Raksha Bandhan, the festival that celebrates the bond between brothers and sisters, is on Saturday. Here are some of the Bollywood films that broke the monotony and portrayed sisters in powerful roles.
