The true story of Phoolan Devi who became a national hero in India because she fought for her rights as a woman but in a violent manner. I was surprised to see a powerful film with strong images come out of India instead of the Bollywood art trash classics they churn out.

The Synopsis for Bandit Queen (1995) 720p
The movie tells the story of the bandit queen Phoolan Devi who was sent to prison in 1983 and got free in 1994. During five years she was prosecuted by the Indian police and turned into a legend (like a modern Robin Hood) by the Indian press. Although the press tended to make her the optimal hero with blue eyes, dark hair, being tall and beautiful she was in reality an average Indian which makes it hard for the movie to fulfill the expectations of the audience and tell the truth at the same time. Later in her life,She entered into the politics and was assassinated in 2001.

No Bollywood here!Reviewed byDukeEmanVote: 9/10
I saw this movie over 5 years ago and the subject still infuriates me, as it should. Her anger and initiative were inspiring. Not that I would takeover an army and kill people, but the scene at the well and at the rebel strong hold will never leave my mind. This is a great film but be prepared for the strong subject matter.
Dark,ferocious and creepy. This controversial piece of Indian folk still freaks me out! Well directed by the talented Shekhar Kapur to give us a break from the nonsensical bollywood flicks. Seema Biswas gives a very electrifying performance who remarkably portrayed the true femme-fatale of those days although, I am still curious on the essence which depicted all the anguish and the immorality which lead the struggle to the queens personal justice. However,whether the contents are based on facts or fiction, the film manages to deliver a strong meaning to feminism power. This is a must-see film. Powerful score by Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan also adds to the ingredient. "Bravo!"
