Globalisation is one of the predominant key factors that have played a vital role in transforming society and which eventually led to changes in the overtones of culture. The radical changes have a remarkable influence on the way women identify themselves and approach their lives. It has resulted in the emergence of women struggling and unfolding to find new opportunities to redefine themselves. The new found ideologies in turn have impacted this patriarchal society to a great extent that it has brought with it individual and social changes and different perspectives about the roles of women and men in family and society, both in concealed lives and communal structures. This change is vividly captured and portrayed in the creative works and it is analysed and interpreted by various theories which are newly formulated or reformulated and one such is the re-emergence of the new age feminist theory. Feminist theory forms the basis for the study of the experiences of women in society, in particular, women's eminence and position within their society and family. Feminist thoughts assumes that women's welfare and perspectives are convincing in and of themselves and are not lesser or secondary to those of men's, nor should they be distinct only in relation to or as a difference from men's experiences. The absence of these assumptions in customary and sociological learning is one of the criticisms which have emerged in feminist erudition. This work explores upon new feminism as a conceptual framework for analysing the changes in women's life and attitude through two films namely English Vinglish and 36 Vayadhinile. © Serials Publications.
