Behind the apathy towards the women's reservation bill in 1996 and 2008, there is a deep-seated anxiety and apprehension about assigning more political power to women, making them more powerful in the public domain which is supposedly that of the male. This paper traces these anxieties and apprehensions historically and looks at how popular cinema masked, evaded, deflected or resolved the anxieties about the changing equations of gender and power.
