Critical acclaim and commercial success are two entirely different things in the film industry. Especially, in the case of actresses they seldom get critical acclaim until and unless it is a well made women-centric film. While actresses get commercial success comparatively easily playing the usual glamour roles, it takes a lot of talent and the right opportunity to get the critical acclaim. Only a few actresses like Anushka Shetty, Samantha, etc. managed to get both commercial success and critical acclaim for their movies like Arundathi, Oh Baby!, etc. Take a look at 16 such roles which got critical acclaim irrespective of the movie's box office result.
