Phoolan Devi was the most feared bandit in India in the 1970s. Born to a low caste poor family who sold her into marriage at the age of 11, Phoolan rebelled and joined a gang of bandits.
Her bravery and skills with a rifle soon meant that she led the gang in kidnapping and killing those who had earlier raped and abused her.
This film, newly available on DVD, dramatically recreates her life and explains how Phoolan became a popular hero to the poor.
Directed by Shekhar Kapur
