A good movie

A good movie

“It is another obscure movie that I had for ages on DVD so it was really time to watch the damned thing. I thought it sounded like an interesting story but if you would expect something like a fancy modern Indian Robin Hood story, I’m afraid you will be rather disappointing. Indeed, there was absolutely nothing glamorous about this tale which was terribly sad and heartbreaking. Basically, it was terribly bleak and violent and the main character was raped the first time when she was maybe 10 years old by her husband, then again and again throughout the whole thing, culminating with a massive gang-rape lasting 3 days during which a whole village seemed to be violating her. Unsurprisingly, this movie was criticized in India for his violence and his sexual content. On top of that, it gave a v” read more

" Indian censors deplored the nudity and violence in this biopic about Phoolan Devi, who overcame rape, child marriage and false imprisonment to become a politician."

Mustanaamio7's Movie Diary - Year 2010 (649 movies items)

"28.11. 2010 An Indian movie that is based on a true story tells about Phoolan Devi, a woman, who was humiliated countless times but managed to avenge wrongdoers by taking part in a feared bandit group. Finally she became the most feared criminal in India. "Bandit Queen" is the director Shekhar Kapur's gripping and shocking breakthough film, and a powerful statement against sexual violence which is a very big problem especially in conservative rural India."
